Lawmakers advance bill pushing VA to research marijuana
House lawmakers took a step forward to push the Department of Veterans Affairs to research the safety and effectiveness of medical marijuana. The House Committee on Veterans' Affairs voted unanimously to advance the VA Medicinal Cannabis Research Act to the House floor — a bipartisan attempt to encourage the VA to study the drug as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain and other ailments that disproportionately affect veterans.
