Senate upholds protections for Cannabis Users against DOJ

Wonderful news for supporters of cannabis legalization!

Norml reports the Senate has upheld The Rohrabacher-Blumenauer Amendment, which amends H.R.2578 and states that federal funds cannot be used to prosecute legal cannabis programs.

That means cannabis producers and users need not worry about criminal prosecution as long as they are following their state’s laws. So not only are you safe from criminal prosecution from the state, you’re safe from federal prosecution too (as long as you’re good with the state). That is federal law now.

Thanks to everyone who contacted their representatives to protect cannabis normalization!
