The Rohrabacher-Farr amendment, also known as Rohrabacher-Blumenaur, which had been set to expire on December 22nd, was continued through January 19, 2018 in a last-minute spending bill extension signed by President Trump.

Cannabis advocates had been concerned about the amendment, which had been renewed every year since 2014, but had not been put up for a vote this year after getting stuck in the House Rules Committee. The amendment was extended through December 8, and then again through December 22, and now again through January 19, at which point it will have to be included in a spending package in order to continue the protections for the medical marijuana industry.
