No Medical Marijuana for Stressed Vets!

Here's a great piece from the Weekly Standard by a doc who used to work in the office of the drug czar at the WH.  Pot for Stressed Vets  Apparently a bill is circulating through Congress to allow the Veterans Administration to start prescribing pot for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.

This hits home, literally, because last Sunday an Afghanistan veteran, supposedly suffering from PTSD, shot up a suburban neighborhood, killing one, wounding several, and destroying several cars and a gas station.  He was clearly nuts.   But PTSD?   We don't know how he was discharged yet; maybe a medical.  Wanna bet he was no stranger to the demon weed?
