Backward Wisconsin House Representatives Deny Medical Marijuana to Veterans with PTSD.

Despite the successful treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder with medical marijuana, our house Republicans are still trying to get over the shock of old Cheech and Chong movies:
VETERANS’ USE OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA: House Republicans refused to allow the Veterans Health Administration to counsel patients on using medical marijuana for ailments such as chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana, and nine allow it to be prescribed for treating PTSD. A yes vote was to allow VHA doctors to counsel patients on medical marijuana.-Roll Call

Sorry, that’s a BIG NO from Paul Ryan, James Sensenbrenner, Tom Petri, Sean Duffy, Reid Ribble.
