24 Will the federal government come after me? U.S. Dept of Justice Memorandum Oct. 19, 2009 Subject: Investigations and Prosecutions in States Authorizing the Medical Use of Marijuana As a general matter, pursuit of there priorities should not focus federal resources in your States on individuals whose actions are in clear and unambiguous compliance with existing state laws providing for the medical use of marijuana.
