This is an uplifting story, and a sign that the federal government may finally be moving toward official acceptance of medical cannabis, rather than its current non-committal stance of agreeing not to throw the full weight of its resources against medical cannabis. This ammendment to the bill funding the budget for the department of Justice has passed the house of representatives. It will still need to be signed by the president, but in the words of Dan Riffle, “Congress is officially pulling out of the war on medical marijuana patients and providers,” and that has to be good news. While this will help patients rest easier in states that have medical marijuana dispensaries, I selfishly hope that this will help to remove one more argument from opponents to dispensaries here in Hawaii.
