Federal Lawmakers Introduce Bill Allowing VA Docs To Recommend Cannabis

Washington, DC: A bipartisan coalition of House lawmakers last week introduced legislation – House Bill 667, The Veterans Equal Access Act – authorizing physicians at the US Department of Veterans Affairs "to provide recommendations to veterans" wishing to participate in state medical marijuana programs.

The measure is now awaiting action before the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.
