Great news from Washington, D.C.! This morning, the Senate Appropriations Committee voted to continue protecting state-sanctioned medical marijuana businesses and patients from Department of Justice interference.
The provision, which you might know as the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment, has to be renewed every time a new budget is passed by Congress. This year, Attorney General Jeff Sessions sent a letter to Members of Congress, urging them NOT to renew the provision.
But thanks in part to the critical work Of the Honolulu Wellness Center ~ Cannabis Card Clinic and members from other organizations have been doing to build strong relationships with senators in both parties, the Appropriations Committee approved the renewal of the amendment on a voice vote. (That means it wasn't even close enough for them to have to do a vote count!)
This is not the end of the story. There are still many steps to go before a new budget is finalized. But this is an important indicator that our allies in Congress are standing up for us, even in the face of DOJ opposition!
