from Activist Post:
Late Thursday night, the House of Representatives told the DEA to butt out of medical marijuana states by approving a budget amendment barring the use of taxpayer funds to do so.
Wow, things are changing fast. Efforts to pass similar amendments have never come close in previous years–the previous best was 165 yea votes in 2007–but the amendment passed by 30 votes tonight.
Tom Angell of Marijuana Majority is liking what he’s seeing: “This historic vote shows just how quickly marijuana reform has become a mainstream issue,” he said. “The last time a similar amendment came up it didn’t come very close to passing but, since then, more states have passed medical marijuana laws and a couple have even legalized marijuana for all adults. More states are on this way later this year and in 2016, and it’s clear that more politicians are beginning to realize that the American people want the federal government to stop standing in the way. If any political observers weren’t aware that the end of the war on marijuana is nearing, they just found out.”
