Colorado Republican Sen. Cory Gardner will meet with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday morning in Washington.

The meeting will take place at the Justice Department.

Gardner has publicly feuded with Sessions since Sessions reversed a policy last week allowing U.S. Attorneys to have more discretion in prosecuting marijuana cases in states where pot is legal.

Gardner said Sessions “basically lied” to him about making that decision and promised to hold up any nominee for the Department of Justice until the attorney general clarified.

Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman cautioned Coloradans to not “freak out” about the decision by Sessions.
