Senators Reintroduce Bill to End Federal Prohibition of Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

With all the fighting going on in Congress, it’s hard to find almost anything for them to agree on nowadays. One of the few things, it seems to be, is ending medical marijuana prohibition.

On Thursday, a bipartisan group including U.S. Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY), Corey Booker (D-NJ), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) reintroduced the CARERS Act with new 2017 branding.

The CARERS Act of 2017 (or, if you’re trying to sound smart, The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States Act) basically allows states with medical marijuana to continue doing it, but legally.

While Attorney General Jeff Sessions offered his interlocutors very little—he just couldn’t remember much of what the Democrats on the committee wanted to know, you see, but was happy to chat about spy novels with the avuncular Sen. Tom Cotton—Rosenstein, author of the memo that President Donald Trump used as justification to fire FBI chief James Comey, whose agency was investigating those same Russian ties, brought at least something concrete to the table: federal policy on marijuana policy is likely to change.

Probably! But he can’t (or won’t) say when, or to what. But watch this space.
