Video: Cannabis Amendments Blocked in Appropriations – now what?

In a late-night vote on Thursday September 6th, the House Rules Committee blocked a full house vote on all cannabis-related appropriations amendments. 

Fortunately, Congress passed a Continuing Budget Resolution which does keep the Rohrabacher medical marijuana protections in the budget until December 8th of this year, and more importantly for the long term, those protections currently included in the Senate’s Appropriations bill for the next fiscal year so Congress still has a chance to protect patients and state-legal cannabis businesses in conference committee.
