Maine’s top federal prosecutor says his office will not make prosecuting marijuana users a priority.

In a statement Tuesday, U.S. Attorney Halsey Frank says his office will instead focus on traffickers of “hard drugs” such as opiates, cocaine and crack.

Frank’s comments come after Attorney General Jeff Sessions reversed an Obama-era policy not to prosecute marijuana cases in states where the drug is legal.

Maine voters approved a law legalizing recreational marijuana in November 2016.
