Initially enacted by Congress in 2014, the amendment maintains that federal funds cannot be used to prevent states from “implementing their own state laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana.” Last August, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that the language bars the federal government from taking legal action against any individual involved in medical marijuana-related activity absent evidence that the defendant is in clear violation of state law. http://blog.norml.org/2017/07/27/senate-committee-passes-amendment-to-protect-medical-marijuana/ I am a trader, only a trader. my posts are my opinion and are not for sale.
