In a big switch from the last administration, the Obama Justice Department won't go after users or suppliers of medical marijuana who comply with state laws. The Associated Press reports new guidelines making the change official are expected to go out to federal prosecutors today. Sellers and smokers in 14 states that allow pot to be used for medical reasons, including California and Maryland, will be able to breathe a little easier from now on. A couple of unnamed Justice Department officials told the AP that it's a waste for the feds to arrest pot users and their suppliers when they're in compliance with state laws.
