ROHRABACHER-BLUMENAUR EXTENDED

Seedling 1062906 960 720
For those of you in the medical marijuana program, the protections of the Rohrabacher-Blumenaur Amendment were extended at least through March 23rd under a continuing resolution signed last Friday. The Amendment prevents the Justice Department from using resources to prosecute state-legal medical marijuana companies. Congress hasn't passed a new federal budget since 2015, so the Amendment keeps being renewed as Congress kicks the budget down the road. It remains a serious question if the protections will become law if Congress ever actually has a vote on the Amendment.
