This testimony compilation is from the February 4, 2014 hearing, "Mixed Signals: The Administration's Policy on Marijuana" before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. From the conclusion of the written statement of Michael P. Botticelli: "We continue to work with youth, parents, educators, and our Federal, state, local, tribal, and international partners to reduce marijuana use in America. Marijuana use strains our health care system, and jeopardizes the health and safety of the users themselves, their families, and our communities. Due to the considerable variation in state laws and constantly changing attitudes toward the drug, there is no silver bullet to reduce its use across the country. There are ways to prevent and reduce marijuana use in America, particularly among young people. Our continuing work must combine prevention, early intervention, rational enforcement measures, and ongoing study of the drug and its consequences." Statements, letters, and other materials submitted for the record include those of Michael P. Botticelli.
