The Veterans Equal Access amendment was blocked by the Republican-led U.S. House, ensuring that Big Pharma continues to cash in on the biological destruction of returning veterans.
The very political party that claims to be pro-military, in other words, has just thrown veterans to the pharma dogs. This, coupled with the routine prescribing of mind-altering psychiatric drugs to veterans after near-instant "PTSD" diagnoses means that our brave men and women in uniform have in many cases been turned into pharmaceutical receptables for the profit interests of the drug industry.
It is an absolute disgrace that our veterans are being denied access to medical marijuana / cannabis medicine. In making this decision, the GOP establishment has become a shameful embarrassment to this nation, routinely putting the profit interests of their big corporate donors over the humanitarian protection of America's soldiers and veterans.
