  • In 2014, Rohrabacher was one of four representatives—along with Dennis Heck (D-Wash.), Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.)—to sponsor an amendment to the Financial Services appropriations bill preventing the U.S. Treasury Department from spending money to penalize banks providing services to businesses in states where cannabis is legal. The amendment passed with bipartisan support, 231 to 192.[2]
