Lakewood, Colo. – U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer suggested that the Trump administration will step up enforcement of federal laws against recreational marijuana. 

"The Trump Administration continues to be ambiguous about how they intend to regulate medical and recreational marijuana. But in Colorado, medical marijuana and adult-use marijuana are inextricably linked and difficult to separate.  If President Trump and Attorney General Sessions favor states' rights then I would urge the new administration to respect the will of the voters.  And I will continue to press for Congressional action to align federal and state laws as it relates to giving legal businesses access to the banking system."
