The decades long war to legalize medical marijuana is over! Medical marijuana is now legal federally, and in the states which have legalized medical marijuana, sellers will not have to worry about being raided or shut down by federal authorities.
“…Tucked deep inside the 1,603-page federal spending measure is a provision that effectively ends the federal government’s prohibition on medical marijuana and signals a major shift in drug policy.
The bill’s passage over the weekend marks the first time Congress has approved nationally significant legislation backed by legalization advocates. It brings almost to a close two decades of tension between the states and Washington over medical use of marijuana.
Under the provision, states where medical pot is legal would no longer need to worry about federal drug agents raiding retail operations. Agents would be prohibited from doing so…”
LA Times – Congress quietly ends federal government’s ban on medical marijuana
This could also be good news for the hemp industry as well. And as we all know hemp is a massively renewable resource and very sustainable. This is BIG news and folks might want to know regardless of their opinion or stance on it. This is historical.
The lifting of the government’s prohibition on medical marijuana also paves the way for more states to come on board and make medical marijuana in their home states.
It’s high time this happened. It’s been decades coming, but it’s finally here. Legalization is happening, and the tidal wave of public support will push this through to the top, finally stopping the decades long (and totally futile) war on pot.
This is historical.
