House Lifts Ban on D.C. Medical Marijuana Law

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–December 10, 2009.  The Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) reports that a U.S. House of Representatives just voted 221-202 on the omnibus spending bill, which will allow Washington, D.C. to implement its medical marijuana law. The Senate will now take up the legislation; MPP expects the bill to pass there without any alterations. President Obama will sign the bill into law once the Senate has acted.

MPP expects all of this to happen very quickly; Congress and the president have until December 18 to finalize the legislation.
