Appropriations Amendments & Committee Votes

Hemp: This amendment prohibited the Department of Justice (DoJ) from using its funds to prevent a state from implementing its own laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of industrial hemp. The amendment passed the House floor by a margin of 282-146 in 2015.

Medical Marijuana: This amendment prohibited the Department of Justice (DOJ) from using its funds to prevent the implementation of state medical marijuana programs. This amendment has been in law since 2014, however, the last House floor vote was in 2015, where the amendment passed by a margin of 242-186.

Adult-UseThis amendment prohibited the Department of Justice (DOJ) from interfering with states that have implemented laws regulating the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of marijuana (including medical and adult use). This was the first and only time that the amendment was offered on the House floor, where it narrowly failed by a margin of 206-222 in 2015.

CBDThis amendment prohibited the use of federal funds funds from being used to take any action to prevent a state from implementing any law that makes it lawful to possess, distribute, or use cannabidiol (CBD) oil. The amendment passed on the House floor by a margin of 297-130 in 2015.

Banking: This amendment would have prohibited federal funds from being used to prohibit or penalize a financial institution from providing financial services to a person or business solely because they participate in any business or organized activity that involves handling cannabis or cannabis products. The vote was passed on the House floor in 2014 by a margin of 231-192. In the 116th Congress, the House Financial Services Committee voted 45-15 to approve the SAFE Banking Act.

Veterans: This amendment would have prohibited federal funds from being used to implement, administer, or enforce any Veterans Health Administration Directive related to the prohibition on VA providers from talking about or recommending cannabis to their patients in states where it’s legal. The amendment passed on the House floor in 2016 by a margin of 233-189, however, it was stripped out of the final law.
