    (CNN) – The federal government won’t try to block state laws in Colorado and Washington that legalized marijuana for recreational use, Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday.

    While federal law still makes the possession, production and sale of marijuana a crime, Holder’s announcement means the Justice Department won’t file lawsuits against state laws in Colorado and Washington that allow people to possess marijuana for personal use. Growing and selling marijuana remain illegal in those states.
