Responsibility to Reduce Opioids and Violent Crime

Robert Troyer, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Colorado, told a group of Colorado state representatives that he will not change the way federal prosecutors in Colorado approach cannabis prosecutions in Colorado.

Colorado legislators will continue to allocate the majority of its efforts and funding toward immigration, opioids and violent crime.

During the call, which was confirmed by Troyer’s staff, the U.S. Attorney told a bipartisan group of Colorado legislators that his office would continue to allocate the majority of its efforts and funding toward immigration, opioids and violent crime. Colorado lawmakers had become concerned with potential federal enforcement after Sessions issued a memo revoking nine years’ worth of United States Department of Justice guidelines protecting businesses and consumers that were compliant with a state’s cannabis laws and regulations.
