Lawmakers press VA to allow medical marijuana for veterans
By Tim Devaney
A bipartisan group of lawmakers is pressing the Department of Veterans Affairs to allow veterans to use medical marijuana.
Currently, VA doctors are prohibited from recommending medical marijuana to their patients, even in states that have legalized pot.
These veterans must go to nonmilitary doctors outside their healthcare plan to obtain a prescription. The tedious and expensive process often discourages veterans from seeking access to such treatment, critics say.
