Congress Votes to Allow Veterans to Discuss Medical Marijuana with Their VA Doctors

Last week the U.S House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate both voted to allow doctors with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to discuss medical cannabis with their patients in states where such medicine is legal.

Both chambers of Congress tacked on amendments to military spending bills that would lift the restrictions on VA doctors discussing medical cannabis as an option in legal states.
