The House might take up a bill introduced by Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) that marijuana prohibition as prescribed by the Controlled Substances Act will not “apply to any person acting in compliance with State laws.”


This could help more states and localities introduce ballot initiatives to decriminalize marijuana without fear of federal meddling.

The Respect State Marijuana Laws Act is co-sponsored by Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI), Don Young (R-AK), Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Steve Cohen (D-TN), and Jared Polis (D-CO).
