Local Marijuana Dispensary Owner Reflects on Changes to Federal Drug Enforcement Rules

Austin Cope

In early January, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a plan to rescind the Cole Memorandum, an Obama-era directive to federal law enforcement in states where marijuana is legal. It directed attorneys to refrain from enforcing national anti-marijuana laws on dispensaries, as long as those dispensaries were following state regulations.

But now, with the directive repealed, the enforcement of marijuana laws may change, though the extent of the changes is unclear.

Corin Wolf is co-owner of the Doobie Sisters recreational marijuana dispensary in Cortez. She joined KSJD's Austin Cope to talk more about the rule change, its potential impact on her business, and her plans for the future.
