Republicans to DC: Don’t legalize pot

House Republicans are warning Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser not to move forward with plans to legalize marijuana in the nation's capital this week -- or else they'll face retribution from Congress.

We strongly suggest you reconsider your position,” the two wrote to Bowserwhile, in a thinly-veiled suggestion that there would be consequences for ignoring them, pointing to House rules that give Chaffetz’s panel broad investigative authority.

“If you decide to move forward tomorrow with the legalization of marijuana in the District, you will be doing so in knowing and willful violation of the law,” Chaffetz and Meadows wrote.
