White House Quietly Launches Initiative to Highlight the Evils of Marijuana

The Trump administration has assembled a secret committee to fight the recent rash of positive press for marijuana. The White House’s Marijuana Policy Coordination Committee appears to have most recently met on July 27, when it gathered with representatives from the State Department, Health and Human Services, the Justice Department, and others. At that meeting, 14 federal agencies were instructed to submit data demonstrating the “negative” aspects of marijuana use because stories highlighting the positive aspects are too common.

Agencies were also asked to describe how the drug poses a threat to their department; highlight “consequences of use, production, and trafficking on national health, safety, and security”; and to identify “issues created by state marijuana initiatives.” That last point may be of particular interest to some members of Trump’s own party, including Colorado senator Cory Gardner, who appeared to convince Trump earlier this summer to leave alone states where marijuana has been legalized. The senator became worried about the administration’s approach after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a crackdown on legal weed in January.

Gardner has not yet commented on the newly revealed committee, though a spokesperson released a statement suggesting that Trump is being manipulated. In a statement to BuzzFeed News, the White House didn’t confirm or deny the committee’s existence. Rather, it said that it does not discuss the process of crafting policies to promote the “President’s agenda.

From a former client with a First Degree Distribution Charge

"In my distraction focusing on my . . . trial, I failed to ask you how things went with . . . I watched and learned from you throughout that case and greatly admire the consummsate attorney that I hoped to emulate. I witnessed how very hard you worked and how you left no stone unturned. I hope the case worked out for you and your clients. If it did not (and I hope it did) it was not for lack of the effect on your part which was humbling."


From an adversary in a case where we ultimately returned a verdict of $2,069,000

"My family and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work on my case. I feel like I can live my life normally again and it feels awesome. You are truly a professional and wonderful attorney."


From a former client charged with a serious weapons offense

"At the time, I was mortified because, having only worked against you in the Prosecutor’s Office, I couldn’t picture being on the same side. Frank, I want to thank you for the pleasure of having worked with you over the past years. I have learned a great deal from you. Most importantly, I learned that cases were not always as black and white as I thought they were when I worked for the Prosecutor’s Office. You are a wonderful attorney who not only works hard, but also cares deeply about his clients. Frank, I think you are the best."
