Congressional bill filed to protect marijuana consumers from losing public housing

It would provide protections for people living in public housing or Section 8 housing from being displaced simply for using cannabis in states that have legalized it for medical or recreational purposes.

The legislation would also require the head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to enact regulations that restrict smoking marijuana at these properties in the same way that tobacco is handled. “HUD, like DOJ, should not be allowed to enforce federal marijuana laws where states have taken action to legalize marijuana,” the congresswoman [Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC)] said, referring to a congressionally approved rider that prevents the Department of Justice from interfering with state medical cannabis laws.
