For the sixth time in a decade, the U.S. House of Representatives last week defeated an amendment to an appropriations bill that would have prohibited the federal Dept of Justice from raiding medical marijuana dispensaries in those states with legal medicinal cannabis laws.
The bipartisan amendment was co-sponsored, as it has been each of the six times it’s been introduced, by Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), and this year they were joined by Tom McClintock (R-CA) and Sam Farr (D-CA).
