Huffington Post reporter Ryan Grim appeared on MSNBC today to talk about the Obama administration's new policy on marijuana prosecutions.

The White House sent new guidelines to federal prosecutors Monday directing them not to arrest marijuana users or suppliers so long as they are following laws in their state.

Grim, who is also the author of This Is Your Country On Drugs, supported the administration's decision and pointed to circumstances in California.

Grim pointed to statistics surrounding teen use of marijuana. In states that have legalized medical marijuana, those numbers have fallen.
