Greenspoon Marder and The Liaison Group To Hold Briefing To Discuss Federal Updates, Including Latest Major Cannabis Industry Win in the House Appropriations Committee
May 18, 2018
Washington, D.C. – May 18, 2018 – Greenspoon Marder and Saphira Galoob, a federal lobbyist with an expertise on federal cannabis legislation and policy issues, will be holding a teleconference briefing on Friday, May 25 at 1 PM ET / 11 AM MT to discuss the latest cannabis industry win in the House Appropriations Committee.
In the climate where House Republicans block most cannabis initiatives, the industry achieved a much-needed win in the House Appropriations Committee yesterday on Capitol Hill. For the first time in the history of cannabis legislation, the majority Republican House Appropriations Committee voted to include key language that prohibits funding to prevent states from implementing their own medical marijuana laws into the text of the base bill. Thanks to the leadership of Congressman David Joyce (R-OH), the industry will be able to avoid what would otherwise be an inevitable challenge on this integral industry protection by Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX) within the Rules Committee during the FY2019 Appropriations process.
During the briefing, Ms. Galoob will provide behind the scenes details on this latest industry win in the House Appropriations Committee, as well as insight on federal legislative activities impacting the cannabis industry, including the highly anticipated Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States (STATES) Act, the VA Medicinal Cannabis Research Act of 2018 and the Medical Cannabis Research Act.
