Federal medical marijuana protections *temporarily* extended.

From Marijuana Majority:

Federal medical marijuana protections *temporarily* extended. Earlier this month we told you that a federal law protecting state-legal medical marijuana patients from DEA harassment was set to expire on September 30. Congress still hasn't resolved the question of whether to extend the provision through next year, but they did just pass a temporary bill prolonging the protections until December 9.

Stay tuned for an action alert making it easy for you to pressure your representatives to keep protecting patients and providers on a longer-term basis. 

This is great. It shows we are a powerful lobby that they must take seriously. Thanks to everyone who helped us out by signing the petition.
