Marijuana has been embraced by numerous states for its medical benefits, and the federal government shouldn’t prevent veterans from accessing something that can improve their quality of life.
As a Federal agency, the VA should be held to the standards of federal law, by not doling out recommendations for illegal drugs to patients. There are legal pharmaceutical substitutes for medical marijuana that serve the same purpose.
