This is exactly right. The Koch brothers are using President Trump as a pawn to achieve their long-standing goal of privatizing the VA. It is up to the president to step up and put the needs of veterans ahead of his wealthy donors.

It is unacceptable that in the United States of America, our vets lose their lives to suicide & drug overdoses more than any other cause. If medical cannabis might help prevent one vet living w/ PTSD & chronic pain from losing their life, needs to study it ASAP.
