Will Congress Approve Marijuana Proposals for the 2016 Federal Budget?

Category: Politics | Posted on Fri, December, 11th 2015 by THCFinder

Federal lawmakers are burning the candle at both ends on Capitol Hill today in an attempt to hash out the final details of Uncle Sam’s new budget before the clock runs out on the current spending bill at the end of the day. Among the legislation wrapped up in this heated negotiation are several amendments aimed at providing protections for those states that have legalized marijuana.

One of the most popular proposals, which was included in last year’s spending bill, would prevent the Department of Justice and their cronies at the DEA from using federal funds to cause obstruction in states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal use. Known as the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment, the measure was drafted with the intention of forcing the federal government to respect a state’s decision to legalize medical marijuana and prevent American tax dollars from being used to prosecute dispensaries and patients. 

However, this amendment has been the source of a great deal of controversy over the past year due to liberal interpretations within the Department of Justice.

Rep. Kelly Cassidy Introduces New Bill To Remove Criminal Penalties For Marijuana Possession In Illinois

Rep. Kelly Cassidy announced Thursday that she is introducing new legislation for 2016 that would replace criminal penalties with a civil fine for possession of a personal amount of marijuana in Illinois.

HB 4357 would make possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana a civil violation punishable by a fine. Adults would no longer face time in jail, and the civil offense would be automatically expunged in order to prevent a permanent criminal record. The proposal largely mirrors legislation previously introduced by Rep. Cassidy that was approved in the Senate (37-19) on May 21 and in the House (62-53) on April 23, as well the amendments proposed by Gov. Bruce Rauner when he vetoed the bill and returned it to the legislature on August 14.

“This is a reasonable proposal that is long overdue,” Rep. Cassidy said. “It needs to happen, and I am hopeful that we can make it happen quickly since it’s already such familiar territory for legislators and the governor.”

Members of the Illinois faith community joined Rep. Cassidy at the news conference to voice support for the bill. More than 50 clergy from around the state have signed a Religious Declaration of Clergy for a New Drug Policy, which includes support for civil rather than criminal sanctions for marijuana possession.
