House Votes To Stop DEA from Targeting Medical Marijuana Operations in States

The DEA’s crackdown on state-licensed medical marijuana operations may finally come to an end under a measure passed late Thursday by the U.S. House of Representatives, Huffington Post reports.

The bipartisan amendment, approved 219-189, would prevent the DEA from using federal funds to go after medical cannabis in states where it is legal.

The vote marks a seismic change in Congressional attitudes toward marijuana.

“We are nearing a point now where the United States Congress is essentially ready to end marijuana prohibition,” said Dan Riffle, director of federal policies at the Marijuana Policy Project.

The bill, which still has hurdles to clear, seeks to end DEA raids of cannabis dispensaries that comply with state law.

There are 22 states that allow the medical use of marijuana.

Thursday’s measure must now get approval from the Senate.
