Amid speculation about how the Trump administration will confront marijuana legalization in states such as Colorado, a Drug Enforcement Administration supervisor has sent an e-mail to a prosecutor in the state attorney general’s office seeking information, “for the new administration.”
The e-mail was sent early last month by a supervisor on the financial investigations team in the DEA’s Denver field office to Michael Melito, a senior assistant attorney general. The e-mail asks for Melito to provide case numbers for several prosecutions relating to marijuana, including one that involved multiple people charged with growing pot illegally in Colorado and then shipping it out of state.

The e-mail was first reported by the International Business Times, which obtained it through an open records request.
“Some of our intel people are trying to track down info regarding some of DEA’s better marijuana investigations for the new administration,” the e-mail states. “Hopefully it will lead to some positive changes.
