The proposed amendment to the NDAA by Rep. Matt Gaetz is a controversial one, but it is one that is gaining traction as more and more states legalize marijuana. The amendment would end cannabis testing for members of the military, both when they are enlisting and accepting a commission.&#13; &#13; There are several arguments in favor of the amendment.

The MORE Act was also refiled again this week, making its way to the House for a third time. The bill is solely sponsored by Democrats and faces an uphill battle to make it through while the House is under GOP majority.
