“Congress is racing to protect legal weed.
Two weeks after Attorney General Jeff Sessions rolled back an Obama-era policy that offered state-legal marijuana businesses a degree of protection from federal prosecution, legislators are hitting back with plans that could handcuff the DEA and block the feds from cracking down.
There are currently two options on the table in the House of Representatives:
Re-up a federal budget rule that restricts agencies from spending money prosecuting medical marijuana in places where it’s legal
Go even further, and turn that rule into a standalone law.
At the beginning of January, Sessions rolled back Obama-era weed policies protecting states and businesses in places where pot was legal from most prosecution, but legislators in both houses are putting up resistance as Congress wrestles with how to keep the government funded through Jan. 19.”
