Washington DC: House Rules Committee Advances Amendment To House For Vote To Protect State Legal Programmes

MJ Biz  write, A key legislative panel advanced an amendment to the full House for consideration that would protect all state-legal cannabis programs from interference by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The U.S. House Rules Committee cleared the amendment for a full House vote as it passed the fiscal year 2020 Commerce-Justice-Science spending bill by an 8-4 margin late Tuesday.

The spending bill also includes a provision that would prohibit the Justice Department from using funds to go after state-legal medical cannabis businesses.

But it’s to be noted as with all these spending bills, it’s the usual kick the can down the road approach, with only 12 months applied to the amendment
