Lawmakers Ask Feds to Investigate Medical Marijuana InterferenceAfter several unsuccessful attempts to attach the amendment to annual spending bills, it was first approved by the U.S. House of Representatives last year by a bipartisan margin of 219-189, and was signed into law by President Obama. This year, the proposal got an even bigger tally of support in the House — 242-186 — and was additionally approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee by a vote of 21 -9. Congress is still completing work on those overall funding bills, but the large margins of support in both chambers mean that there’s a good chance the prohibition will be enacted into law again through legislation covering Fiscal Year 2016.
