MANCOS, Colo. (CBS4) – Mancos Mayor Queenie Barz will not join other local leaders in southwestern Colorado in signing a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions about marijuana.

The letter asks him to reconsider his decision to end an Obama-era policy instructing federal prosecutors not to interfere with state laws legalizing marijuana.

The Cortez Journal reports Barz fears it would open a “political can of worms” to take sides.

“As a government, we really have to not be radical on either side,” Barz said.
