A House subcommittee hearing is scheduled on April 30, 2019, to discuss military veteran-focused legislation concerning access to medical cannabis, protections for individuals using cannabis in compliance with state law, and expanded research on the therapeutic value of cannabis.
Three bills will be up for consideration by the Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Health before their anticipated advancement to the full committee for a vote: the VA Medicinal Cannabis Research Act, Veterans Equal Access Act, and Veterans Cannabis Use for Safe Healing Act. Lawmakers in support of the bills, including Democratic Representatives Lou Correa and Earl Blumenauer, are expected to attend.
The meeting will be broadcast here.
