This Week’s Important Vote in Congress

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.

The last time this same amendment was up it lost by a vote of 163 - 262. Me

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.

    Standing in line, “you know, popular mechanics back in 1938 promised unlimited cellulose from hemp. That plastic bottle in your hand shouldn’t be made from 20% plants it should be 100%. That way in stays within the cycle of life”

    Haha always so many ways to work! I always tell myself take the jack herer pledge to fight everyday! I usually do, but we can all always take it to another level, leading with examples.

    Stay true spiritual sisters and brothers.

      I think whether this is the issue that pushes down the walls or not, we have never been this close before. If nothing else we should be able to force this as a national issue in the next presidential race. All that is required is belief in the founding vision of the nation — that different places could do things differently. Ah, power.

    Couple months until it goes to senate and what not or when do we hear the end of this?
