Barack Obama’s nominee for attorney general, Loretta Lynch, told senators during her confirmation hearing that she, like her predecessor Eric Holder, would not support marijuana legalization. Lynch did not stray far from the Justice Department’s current stance. While Holder refused to challenge legalization in Colorado and Washington, he also did not change the federal government’s stance on what is currently a Schedule I controlled substance, in common with heroin. (Will the next Attorney General crack down on marijuana?)
