Guam government argues recreational marijuana law doesn't violate federal law

The government of Guam argues that a local law that legalized recreational marijuana doesn't violate federal law.

The lawsuit filed in the District Court of Guam by Sedfrey Linsangan seeks to void the Guam Cannabis Industry Act of 2019. He asked the federal court to strike down the new law and ban the local government from allowing marijuana to be sold and distributed legally.

The Guam Cannabis Industry Act, Public Law 35-5, decriminalizes the personal use of marijuana for individuals who are 21 years old and older. It also places restrictions on cultivation, regulates cannabis-related operations, and imposes a tax.

The Office of the Attorney General filed an opposition stating Guam isn't in violation of federal law.
