Medical Marijuana Shops Still At Risk Despite Provision in Spending Bill (IVN)

The federal government signaled a truce with marijuana advocates in two landmark decisions.
The U.S. Department of Justice said Native American tribes can grow and sell marijuana on their lands in a December 11 statement, while President Obama signed a federal spending bill into law on Tuesday which includes a provision protecting medical marijuana.
…The provision prohibits federal drug agents from raiding state-legalized medical marijuana operations. It also represents the culmination of years of work, according to Morgan Fox, communications manager for the Marijuana Policy Project.
