The Kansas Attorney General says marijuana from Colorado is "permeating" every part of Kansas.

Derek Schmidt says Colorado's decision to legalize marijuana has led to high-grade marijuana from that state largely replacing lower grade marijuana from Mexico and home-grown marijuana in Kansas.

Schmidt says he reviewed information from 320 law enforcement agencies and 70 prosecutors that responded to a survey on Colorado pot. He also criticized the federal government for not keeping promises to help prevent Colorado marijuana from moving into nearby states like Kansas.
