Senate panel advances measure to protect medical marijuana states

The Senate Appropriations Committee approved an amendment to a budget bill on Thursday to protect medical marijuana programs from federal interference in states that have legalized the drug for medical use.

The amendment to the 2018 Commerce, Justice and Science appropriations bill passed by a voice vote and prohibits the Justice Department from using funds to prevent states from “implementing their own state laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana.” … The amendment passed despite a letter [the current attorney general] sent in May asking House and Senate leadership not to block DOJ from using funds to enforce federal marijuana laws.
