A bipartisan group of lawmakers from Oregon are pushing to protect the personal information of pot customers in case federal agents try to seize it.
If passed, the law could require marijuana businesses to destroy customers' personal information within 48 hours, according to the Associated Press.
It's one of the first direct state actions in response to White House spokesman Sean Spicer's comments last week suggesting a boost in enforcement of federal anti-marijuana laws.
US AG Jeff Sessions said he's reviewing a memo that allows states to pass marijuana laws.
The committee that crafts Oregon's pot policies has proposed legislation that requires marijuana businesses to destroy customers' personal information, such as names, addresses and birth dates, gathered for marketing purposes.
The measure is scheduled for its first hearing Tuesday.
It must pass the full Legislature and be signed by the Democratic governor, who's vowed to fight federal interference in Oregon's pot market.
Letter to Jeff Sessions
On Thursday, a group of U.S. Senators from WA, CO, AK, MA, OR, NV, NJ and HI signed a letter to Sessions expressing concerns over Spicer's recent comments.
"We respectfully request that you uphold the DOJ's existing policy regarding states that have implemented strong and effective regulations for recreational marijuana use," the letter reads.
