Congress Fails to Give Veterans Fair and Equal Access to State-Legal Medical Marijuana

 | 

Despite Congress’s rush to get out of town, Republican leadership still found time to use the continuing resolution legislation to block Congressman Earl Blumenauer’s Veterans Equal Access provision to make it easier for qualified veterans to access state-legal medical marijuana.

The provision was passed by both the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate with broad bipartisan support earlier this year. Republican “leadership,” however, removed the provision from the final Department of Veterans Affairs funding bill that passed Congress on Wednesday night.
