Gov. Kate Brown strongly defended Oregon’s marijuana regulations in a letter Tuesday to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and publicly discredited an Oregon State Police analysis that concluded the state remains a top black market source for the drug.

Brown detailed the steps Oregon has taken to tackle illicit trafficking and criticized the analysis, which Sessions cited at length in a letter to the governor last month.
