The DEA’s defiant crusade against marijuana users may cost the agency a lot of money.

Federal lawmakers are considering several proposals that would severally limit the DEA’s ability to arrest marijuana users, the LA Weekly reports. 

One bill would protect hemp growers and sellers, and another would extend a law  designed last year to protect marijuana users in states where medical marijuana is legal.

Other proposals include trimming millions of dollars from the DEA’s hemp eradication program.

Bill Piper, director of national affairs for the Drug Policy Alliance, saod “there’s unprecedented support on both sides of the aisle for ending the federal war on marijuana.”
