Sponsored Legislation

H.R.4825 - MEDS Act (2017-2018)

Comments

"The MEDS Act is common sense. When presented with an opportunity to alleviate the suffering of those afflicted with painful disorders, we must take it. We don't know all the answers when it comes to the effects of medical-grade marijuana. This legislation allows scientists and researchers to get at those answers in a responsible manner that isn't hindered by unnecessary roadblocks."
