California Seeks to Become "Sanctuary State" for Marijuana Dealers

California legislators have introduced a bill that would prevent state and local law enforcement from cooperating with federal drug investigators on cases involving state-authorized marijuana dealers.

California passed Proposition 64 last year, legalizing the possession and use of marijuana by adults in the state. 

The proposed bill has been widely condemned by law enforcement officials as unnecessarily creating difficulties between state, local, and federal drug enforcement cooperation.

Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer (D-Los Angeles) introduced the bill, which would have a similar effect to that of sanctuary city policies that seek to shield illegal immigrants from deportation by federal authorities.
