U.S. Conference of Mayors urges Feds to back off state marijuana laws


Eighteen mayors from around the country passed a resolution Monday at the United States Conference of Mayors, urging the federal government to respect state rights when it comes to recreational and medical marijuana laws.
The resolution, drafted by the advocacy group Marijuana Majority, calls for the government to amend the Controlled Substances Act to allow states to regulate their own marijuana policies and to end federal intervention in state-legal businesses. Denver Westword has the rest.
