Battling the Storm Within

Republicans and Democrats agree: VA must study medical marijuana for veterans.

Both sides of the aisle on the House Veterans Affairs Committee seem to agree -- the VA must study medical cannabis to determine if it could help veterans.

They just don’t seem to necessarily agree on how to go about it.

“I believe cannabis must be objectively researched,” Chairman Mark Takano, D-Calif., said at a committee hearing Thursday.

Ranking member Phil Roe, R-Tenn., submitted a bill that would require the VA to study medical marijuana/cannabis and its uses for chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder and other conditions.
