Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., and Rep. Tim Walz, D-Minn., the chairman and ranking member of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, respectively, introduced legislation last week authorizing the Department of Veterans Affairs to research the effectiveness of marijuana in treating various ailments of veterans.
