Rand Paul introduces plan to protected medical marijuana from the Feds

Rand Paul recently filed an ammendment that protects patients and physicians in medical marijuana states. In short, the ammendment prohibits prosection from a federal level, while also defunding prosecutions.

"What we're trying to do is look at the law and allow states that have changed their laws and have allowed medical marijuana to do so, for doctors to be able to prescribe and for people to be able to get those prescriptions without being worried about the federal government coming in and arresting them," Brian Darling, Paul's communications director, told The Huffington Post.
