State and Coalition Responses to the Federal Enforcement Priority Areas for Marijuana

This was presented at the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America’s 2014 Mid-Year Training Institute in Orlando, FL on July 20-14, 2014.
Marijuana continues to be illegal as a Schedule 1 substance under Federal Law. Coalitions can play an important role in gathering and organizing information that might be helpful to federal prosecutors and their own communities. Participants in this session will learn about the 8 Enforcement Priorities set out by the U.S. Attorney General. They will then become familiar with the role that coalitions can play in collecting local information that aligns with these priority areas and how changes in marijuana law might impact each area of the Strategic Prevention Framework.
