There was an important vote in Congress this week, seeking to defund federal raids against state-legal medical marijuana operations. The vote to defund these raids passed 219 -189.
This amendment to defund the raids had been introduced and voted on 6 times since 2003.
This victory a 56 vote swing. Here's something else -- for this winning vote 21 Republican's changed sides since the last vote. It will take Republican votes for whatever change is coming. I think it will be Republican votes that ultimately determines the day of re-legalization.
Onward. Work remains to be done.
