Congress Won’t Let Veterans Access Medical Marijuana After All
An effort to allow veterans to access medical marijuana in states where it’s legal died Wednesday night when Congress passed a spending bill without the provision included.
The Veterans Equal Access Amendment would have nullified a Department of Veterans Affairs standard that keeps its doctors from recommending medical cannabis as treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, pain and other conditions experienced by veterans. Veterans currently seeking medical pot must obtain a doctor’s recommendation outside of the VA system and pay the expense out of pocket.

Granddaddy Purple GDP (Indica)
Green bud nuggets begin to show purple hues as they mature on Granddaddy Purple cannabis plants. This all-Indica marijuana strain is known worldwide for its many phenotypes that include Grape Ape, Grandaddy Grape Ape and Purple Erkel to name just a few. The strain hails from the Northern Californian hills as it has for more than 20 years. It grows very well indoors, either in water, air or soil. It has a predisposition to be short in bushy, as Indicas will. A euphoric effect about the same as the Purple Urkle is produced, a devastating Indica. This is a great night time strain because its such a heavy indica buzz, with a very pleasant upper head body and warmth buzz which fades into droopy red eyes, munchies and complete pain relief and sedation.
Colorado Earmarks Pot Tax Revenue to Fight Bullying
In addition to building schools, educational programs and various other services like school drop-out prevention and mentoring projects, the Colorado Education Department (CDE) will receive a $2 million grant to prevent bullying in schools, according to Denver 7.
Thanks to the passage of Proposition BB, which allows the state to retain $66 million of pot tax revenue for school construction and state programs, the CDE can put this new bullying prevention program into place.
