The U.S. Justice Department is reviewing federal marijuana enforcement policy through the Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the move Apr. 5, with the aim of ensuring “consistency with the Department’s overall strategy on reducing violent crime and with Administration goals and priorities.”

From asserting “good people don’t smoke marijuana” to this past week expressing surprise more people aren’t enthused by his anti-marijuana stance, Sessions’ position as head of the DOJ understandably makes supporters of legalization nervous. As much as supporters of legalization dislike it, Sessions would be well within his authority to prioritize enforcement of federal laws against marijuana, even in states that have voted to legalize it, because federal law trumps state law.
