HR 5762 - The Veterans Equal Access Act of 2014 HR 5762
The Veterans Equal Access Act permanently would lift the "gag order" that currently prevent V.A. doctors from discussing the benefits of medical cannabis therapy with their veteran patients. It would explicitly permit V.A. doctors to discuss medical cannabis therapy and write recommendations in accordance with state law. Unlike the similar Veterans Equal Access Amendment, the Act is permanent legislation and would not have to be renewed each year.
