The House provision would block DC from using local funds to carry out its legalization measure. The problem with this idea is DC's legalization initiative costs nothing; it actually saves the district money to not enforce laws against marijuana possession.
The ballot measure actually couldn't cost money in the first place. DC ballot initiatives, by law, can't have a direct impact on the local budget.
Me Thinks there is a reading comprehension issue in the House...talk about structural education issues. This is Saturday Night Live shit!
