Update: HR 1824 and S 780 were referred to committees.
Senator Wyden and Representative Blumenauer have introduced legislation in the House and Senate (HR 1824 and S 780) to offer a wide range of legal protections to state-compliant marijuana-related businesses and consumers.
Specifically, these measures will protect consumers in legal marijuana states by ensuring them access to public housing, financial aid, and by prohibiting them from deportation. They will also expand veterans’ access to medical cannabis. These measures will assist businesses by ensuring them access to banking and by protecting them from federally-initiated civil asset forfeiture. They will also permit marijuana-related enterprises to be established on tribal lands free from federal interference.
