To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
- The HHS memo recently submitted to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy's Marijuana Policy Coordination Committee regarding the negative impacts of marijuana legalization and increased use.
For background, according to a BuzzFeed News report, the White House recently ordered 14 agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services, to submit two-page, bulleted fact sheets no later than Aug. 10 that would “identify marijuana threats; issues created by state marijuana initiatives; and consequences of use, production, and trafficking on national health, safety, and security”: https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/dominicholden/trump-secret-committee-anti-marijuana
I therefore request that fact sheet and any other material submitted to the White House in response to its order.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
There are no files associated with this request.
