Senate Appropriations Committee Votes To Protect State Medical Marijuana Laws

Members of the United States Senate Appropriations Committee voted by a margin of 2 to 1 today in favor of language limiting the Justice Department’s ability to take criminal action against state-licensed operations that are acting in full compliance with the medical marijuana laws of their states. The Senate amendment mirrors language approved by the House last week in their version of the CJS bill.
