The GOP-controlled House voted early Friday in favor of blocking the federal government from interfering with states that permit the use of medical marijuana.
The somewhat surprising 219-189 vote came as the House debated a bill funding the Justice Departments budget.

I agree. States rights.
That’s not Rohrabacher’s basis though.
Today’s troubles make pot look like a relatively small issue.
Really? The border is not secure, the IRS is targeting Conservatives, Govt agencies are arming up swat teams and veterans are being denied healthcare but what moves Republicans to act fast is protecting States with druggies who want to get high....interesting priorities.
You got all that from the excerpt?
Nanny State PING!

Don't trust government. They want a disarmed America. They continually demonstrate this through words and deeds.
'They're legalizing, Mortimer!'
This is retarded, people running this country are all mentally ill
Our county just approved a medical marijuana farm last night - the new “growth industry.” (15 to 20 jobs) which will ultimately spawn a new name for Freeport - “Freepot.” /s
Theres not a whole lot of new American industries that are spawning like this that are going to grow like this, President Jeff Basler said in the meeting. You gotta get one.
Opponents should keep their noses out of the business of states other than their own.
Thanks for the ping!
Not THAT'S funny.
