US Attorney Says He Won't Rule Anything Out

Massachusetts U.S. Attorney Andrew  Lelling is not ruling out the federal prosecution of anyone who  participates in the marijuana trade.  

Lelling issued a statement on the  issue yesterday that could place the state's legal marijuana law in  jeopardy.  

Lelling says he cannot provide assurances that people in the  state level marijuana trade will be immune from prosecution under  federal law.  

He says Congress has made it a crime to cultivate or  possess marijuana, and it's his sworn responsibility to uphold that law.
