A new platform plank adopted on Monday by the National Association of Counties, which represents the 3,069 county governments across the U.S., calls for an end to federal interference in state marijuana policy. “The federal government should largely be responsible for regulating and enforcing against illegal drug trafficking, while respecting states’ right to decriminalize cannabis under state law. NACo urges Congress to enact legislation that promotes the principles of federalism and local control of cannabis businesses with regard to medical and adult-use of cannabis under state law.” The county officials’ new stance is similar to resolutions adopted last month by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, which urged, “the White House, U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to immediately remove cannabis from the schedule of the CSA to enable U.S. federal banking regulators to permanently authorize financial institutions to provide services to commercial cannabis businesses and increase the safety of the public.”
