Medical marijuana advocates were celebrating Thursday night. 

The U.S. Attorney General has announced plans to end raids on medical marijuana dispensaries that are legal under state law.

Newly installed U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder declared he would stop the practice established by the Bush administration of raiding legally licensed medical marijuana dispensaries.

The Drug Enforcement Agency will now cease the raids that have continued, according to reports, even after Bush left office.

Holder said Obama's campaign promise to stop the raids is "now American policy."
