Submitted by Marijuana News For the first time ever, the U.S. Senate will link funding of the Department of Justice with a provision that protects states with legalized medical marijuana, writes Joseph Misulonas.  The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies approved a bill funding the Department of Justice for 2019 with a provision that none of the funding can be used to go after medical marijuana businesses in states where it is legal.
