Congressional lawmakers did not include a marijuana provision in the must-pass defense bill released Tuesday, but a joint explanatory statement accompanying the bill contains some elements of drug policy reform, including a directive requiring the military to review the potential for "phytotherapy," such as marijuana and certain psychedelics for service members, plant-based therapies as an alternative to prescription opioids for the treatment of PTSD, TBI or chronic pain." The directive does not explicitly state that the research must involve marijuana or any specific hallucinogen. Meanwhile, the joint explanatory statement also contains several other sections on the House-passed drug policy proposal, one of which calls for "the Military Justice Review Group to develop recommendations to assign appropriate sentencing ranges for crimes involving the use and possession of marijuana."
