To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
- all memos 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 and departments 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
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
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.
