Rep. Polis questions Holder on MMJ

Posted By on Tue, May 18, 2010 at 9:43 AM

Below, Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colorado, kicks off his tenure on the House Judiciary Committee by running some thoughts past Attorney General Eric Holder.

Most interesting is Polis' attempt to get clarification from Holder on comments made by Denver DEA special agent in charge Jeffrey Sweetin, who said, "The time is coming when we go into a dispensary, we find out what their profit is, we seize the building and we arrest everybody."

Holder:

Well, it's incumbent upon me as Attorney General to make sure that what we have set out as policy is being followed by all of the components within the Department of Justice and to the extent that somebody at the DEA, somebody at — some Assistant United States Attorney is not following that policy. It is my responsibility to make sure that the policy is clear, that the policy is disseminated, and that people act in conformity with policies that we have determined.
