When asked about medicinal for veterans: "Soliders are coming home from Afghanistan and there must be the kind of treatment that allows them to have a full life. With that in mind, the door should be open, the presentation should be made, and we as memebrs of congress should be looking at the medicinal use of any aspect that will treat coniditons like PTSD."
