Congress quietly ends federal government’s ban on medical marijuana

Congress has added a provision to the just past spending measure that keeps the government running that prevents the Federal Government from expending resources to enforce federal marijuana laws against dispensaries in the states that allow for medical marijuana use.

Under the provision, states where medical pot is legal would no longer need to worry about federal drug agents raiding retail operations. Agents would be prohibited from doing so.
