US will continue to jail pot dealers 'in all states'

The White House has pledged to continue to jail those who traffick in marijuana or sell it to minors -- even in two US states where its recreational use is now legal.

At a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Deputy Attorney General James Cole defended the federal decision not to challenge new laws legalizing marijuana in Colorado and Washington states, approved by voters in November 2012.

Those law clash with federal laws which classify marijuana as a Schedule One controlled substance, on par with heroin.
