States rights versus the federal government's senseless drive to aid the pharmaceutical industry and lock users of this natural plant in prison, thus destroying American families.

(DENVER) - Today, Colorado-based and national representatives of LEAP sent a stern letter to U.S. Attorney John Walsh, pushing back against his recent threats to medical marijuana centers that operate legally under state and local law.

The letter, signed by a 26-year veteran Denver cop and a former Lafayette judge, says Walsh's actions are "a disservice to the state of Colorado" and "undermine state and local regulations in a manner that will likely increase the underground distribution of marijuana."

The law enforcers urge Walsh to "recognize that the longstanding policy of prohibition itself – which we, like you, were once charged with enforcing – has made schools and parks the focal point for drug distribution, drug information and drug requisition."

They tell Walsh that "going out of your way to short-circuit the will of the people and their elected representatives and to place obstacles between patients and their medicine is short-sighted and inimical to the public health, safety and welfare."

Walsh's original threat letter gives the medical marijuana centers 45 days to close down or face legal action.

The anti-prohibition law enforcers are urging Walsh to not follow through on the threats and instead respect the will of the people and lawmakers of Colorado.
