Twenty-nine States have enacted laws that allow patients access to medical marijuana and its derivatives, such as CBD oils. 61% of Republicans and a whopping 76% of Independents favor making medical marijuana legal and available to their patients who need it. 80% of Democrats feel the same way. Despite this overwhelming shift in public opinion, the Federal Government continues its hard-line oppression against medical marijuana. Some people are suffering and if a doctor feels that he needs to prescribe something to alleviate that suffering, it is immoral for this government to get in the way, and that is what is happening. The State governments have recognized that a doctor has a right to treat his patient any way he sees fit, and so did our Founding Fathers. Read less

Division B, section 537 provides that the Department of Justice may not use any funds to prevent implementation of medical marijuana laws by various States and territories. I will treat this provision consistently with my constitutional responsibility to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.

For those of us who routinely talk about the 10th Amendment, which we do in conservative ranks, and respect for State laws, this amendment should be a no-brainer. Our amendment gives all of us an opportunity to show our constituents that we are truly constitutionalists and that we mean what we say when we talk about the importance of the 10th Amendment. In addition, this also gives us the opportunity to prove that we really do believe in respecting the doctor-patient relationship. I proudly offer this amendment that has the support of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle. I am joined by Republican cosponsors Don Young, Tom McClintock, Dr. Paul Broun, Steve Stockman, and Justin Amash, as well as Democrat cosponsors Sam Farr, Earl Blumenauer, Steve Cohen, Jared Polis, Barbara Lee, and Dina Titus. I urge my colleagues to support our commonsense, states' rights, compassionate, fiscally responsible amendment.

 Some people are suffering and if a doctor feels that he needs to prescribe something to alleviate that suffering, it is immoral for this government to get in the way, and that is what is happening. The State governments have recognized that a doctor has a right to treat his patient any way he sees fit, and so did our Founding Fathers.
