The HincheyRohrabacher amendment that prohibits federal funding be used to raid medical and recreational marijuana businesses has passed three times in Republican-controlled Congress. If it is again passed in April it will ensure that Trump can complain all he wants, but he or Sessions wont be able to do much other than complain and saber rattle. Marijuana Policy Project Communications Director Mason Tvert urged Congress in a statement to continue to keep this budget amendment in place, stating that a reduction in regulation will have its own consequences. It is hard to imagine why anyone would want marijuana to be produced and sold by cartels and criminals rather than tightly regulated, taxpaying businesses, Tvert wrote.
