"The President's brief comments on this subject reflect common sense. In a time of tight budget constraints, I want law enforcement to focus on violent crime. But now that we have a gap between federal and state laws on marijuana we need more information and a wider discussion about where our priorities should be and a clear plan going forward so that states can execute their own laws. I expect the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing next year to help focus attention and action on accomplishing that."
