Lawmakers Will Participate in Cannabis Vote-O-Thon
Lawmakers are prepping for what could turn into a cannabis vote-0-thon Wednesday. Cannabis advocates are expecting lawmakers to introduce at least a half dozen cannabis-related appropriations amendments that would roll back the DOJ’s authority to enforce drug laws around the country.
“The politics have continued to shift in favor of marijuana law reform,” said Tom Angell, chairman of the Marijuana Majority.
The cannabis amendments come as part of the Justice Department’s funding bill, which dictates the terms in which the agency can use the money.
