New Attorney General Against Legalization, Says She'll Respect State Laws

The Senate officially approved Loretta Lynch as U.S. Attorney General Thursday to the slight disappointment of many marijuana advocates.

However, Lynch also said she plans to continue her predecessor Eric Holder’s hands-off policy of allowing states to make their own marijuana laws without federal interference — which is something, at least.
