In a new budget bill expected to pass this week to fund the government until September, lawmakers added a provision called the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment. It allows states to carry on with crafting their own medical marijuana policies without fear of federal intervention. To bad so sad for U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions who vowed to crack down on states that don't enforce the federal prohibition on marijuana.
The amendment reads as follows.
"None of the funds made available in this Act to the Department of Justice may be used, with respect to any of the States of Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, or with respect to the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico, to prevent any of them from implementing their own laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of medical marijuana."
Again, this bill has not yet seen the light of day but is expected to pass. What is important here is that Congress has recognized the importance of marijuana in the medical community. Marijuana has proven medicinal properties dating back thousands of years. You can thank JP Morgan and Rockefeller for their efforts in distorting the facts and fictitiously demonizing this natural miracle plant that has much to offer the world to include textiles. They lobbied against it and coerced corrupt lawmakers until it was prohibited by federal law. All for the love of their pharmaceuticals and the money, power and control that came with it.
This is a step in the right direction.
I'll let you know when it passes.
