By John Schroyer The only federal law formally preventing the U.S. Department of Justice from prosecuting medical marijuana businesses has once more been given a new lease on life. This time, the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer Amendment – formerly known as Rohrabacher-Farr – has been extended until March 23 under the budget deal passed by Congress and signed Friday morning by President Donald Trump. This is the eighth time the amendment has been temporarily extended by a continuing resolution from Congress, which hasn’t passed a new federal budget since 2015. Rohrabacher-Blumenauer prohibits the DOJ from using federal funds to interfere with state-legal MMJ laws and companies. The measure does not protect recreational marijuana businesses. Because Rohrabacher-Blumenauer has been approved in the past only as an amendment to the federal budget, the law’s lifespan is tied to annual renewal by Congress. Federal medical cannabis protection extended again
