Instead, a separate bill was introduced to allow those in medical need of the drug the use of it.

So how do you feel about the girl suing Sessions?
So you support the pro-medical marijuana bill introduced by Representative Dana Rohrabacher in the House and are outraged that the Republican leadership is blocking it there?
The Complaint in the case is here: https://www.fitsnews.com/themencode-pdf-viewer-sc/[WORD TOO LONG]
I've only looked at the first few pages, but it seems legally and factually sound. The relief it seeks is not really directed at Sessions, but at declaring those sections of the Controlled Substances Act that pertain to cannabis unconstitutional:
Plaintiffs demand judgment, over and against Defendants, declaring the CSA as it pertains to the cultivation, distribution, marketing, sale, prescription and use of Cannabis, unconstitutional under the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment, the Right to Travel, and the Commerce Clause, together with: (i) a permanent injunction (and temporary relief if so required), restraining Defendants from enforcing the CSA as it pertains to Cannabis; (ii) reasonable legal fees and costs pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. §2412, insofar as the Federal Government cannot maintain its position on the existing record that continued enforcement of the CSA as it pertains to Cannabis is "substantially justified;" and (iii) any and all other and further relief this Court deems just and proper.
It's probably a legal long shot given the extreme deference Courts have historically given Congress in this area, but worth a try.
EDIT: You can get the Complaint by clicking on the hyperlink "court documents" in the article in the OP.
EDIT2: BTW that article was wrong; Dana Rohrabacher is a Republican. https://media.cq.com/members/72?rel=memberLink
