As of last weekend (with the passage of a surprise spending bill!) the federal government can no longer use its own resources to interfere with state medical marijuana laws. As a company in the emerging marijuana industry and an advocate for marijuana legalization, Kush Bottles views this as a historic week!
Other thought leaders chimed in as well.
Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, who co-authored the measure, described the passage of this bill as “a victory for so many.” She went on to say its approval represents, “the first time in decades that the federal government has curtailed its oppressive prohibition of marijuana.”
Representative Sam Farr (D-Calif) also commented on the federal war on medical marijuana being over. “This is great day for common sense because now our federal dollars will be spent more wisely on prosecuting criminals and not sick patients.”
We think this historic victory calls for a little celebration. If you haven’t already, pop some bottles to show your support!
