The bill would also immunize medical (and non-medical) marijuana businesses that are operating in compliance of state laws.
“This bipartisan bill represents a common-sense approach that establishes federal government respect for all states’ marijuana laws,” said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, (R-Calif.), one of the acts sponsors. “It does so by keeping the federal government out of the business of criminalizing marijuana activities in states that don’t want it to be criminal.”
Currently, 18 states and the District of Columbia allow for the use of medical marijuana, with permission from a physician.
