Senate Committee Passes Pro-Pot-For-Vets Amendment

The Senate Appropriations Committee approved a historic bipartisan amendment Thursday that aims to increase veterans' access to medical marijuana.

The Veterans Equal Access Amendment, added to the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations bill, passed the committee 18-12.

The amendment prohibits the Department of Veterans Affairs from using funds to prevent doctors from giving vets medical marijuana.

The measure allows doctors within the VA to recommend medical marijuana to their veteran patients.

The bill still has a lot of congressional votes to face before becoming law, but the committee approval is a big first step.
