Republicans in Congress blocked a vote on legislation that many ill veterans want – – that bill would have allowed VA doctors to prescribe medical marijuana.
The bill, known as “Veterans Equal Access” amendment, would have moved to debate on the House floor. Instead, the House Rules Committee stopped the bill by excluding it from the House’s proposed VA funding bill for next year.
