MMJ For Veterans Amendment Approved By Senate Committee

The U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee approved on Thursday an amendment to SB 3024 that ensures access to medical marijuana cannot be denied to veterans by the Department of Veterans Affairs, according to a press release.

The amendment was introduced to the committee by Sen. Steve Daines (R-Montana), whose office makes clear it’s both a veterans and states’ rights issue. The amendment does not directly provide or fund medical marijuana but ensures that veterans may discuss with their VA doctors the option of MMJ in those states where it is legal. The amendment also makes it clear that access to other VA services may not be denied to veterans who are participating in a medical marijuana program.
