here Harris is pushing AG Holder to sue WA & CO to prevent implementation of cannabis legalization initiatives that go into full effect with state licensed stores opening toward the end of the year.
"Your department could choose to attempt to overturn those laws," said Harris, a physician. That would send a message to America's youth that marijuana is not a safe drug, he added. "Kids need clear messages and I'm afraid we're not sending them one," he said.
Harris pressed Holder on when a decision might come, "because children are dying from drugs. It is a scourge ... can you give me a general idea of when that decision's going to be made?"
Holder would only say, "As quick as we can."
