The funding prohibition goes beyond the annual medical cannabis appropriations rider, commonly known as Rohrabacher-Farr, in a number of ways.
First, it doesn’t just shield medical cannabis patients, providers and laws; it covers everyone complying with a state marijuana law, including recreational businesses and consumers.
Second, it doesn’t just restrict the Department of Justice; it also applies to the Treasury Department, the Department of Homeland Security and every other federal government agency that could potentially go after people for violating federal marijuana prohibition.
Third, and perhaps most important, it is permanent. Unlike the existing medical cannabis rider, it wouldn’t need to be renewed every year as part of annual spending bills. If enacted, its language would exist in statute until a future Congress proactively changed it.
