Medical Marijuana Raids Continue, Which Is Fine With Congress


Yesterday the Hinchey-Rohrabacher amendment, aimed at stopping the DEA's medical marijuana raids, attracted 165 votes, the most ever but only two more than last year and 53 votes short of a majority. Neither the Democratic takeover of Congress nor Bob Barr's lobbying seems to have helped much. On the same day the House was debating the amendment, the DEA raided 10 medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles.
