Morning Journal, 25 Jun 2015 – COLUMBUS (AP) – The Ohio House on Wednesday passed a fast-moving anti-monopoly proposal that the state’s elections chief has said could block an effort to legalize marijuana if both issues are put before and approved by voters.

Members of the United States Senate Appropriations Committee voted by a margin of 2 to 1 today in favor of language limiting the Justice Department’s ability to take criminal action against state-licensed operations that are acting in full compliance with the medical marijuana laws of their states. The provision was offered as an amendment by Rep. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) in the Senate version of the Fiscal Year 2016 Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations bill. The Senate amendment mirrors language approved by the House last week in their version of the CJS bill. Passage of the provision reauthorizes protections signed into law last year, but which are set to expire this September. A vote by the full Senate and reconciliation with the House is necessary before the 2016 spending bill is transmitted to the President.
