Here is a trumpet joke for you: How many trumpet players does it take to change a light bulb?

five. One to actually change it, four to tell everyone how much higher, faster, and louder they could have done it.

I also play trumpet.

Wouldn't you as a Republican be against forcing someone to use a specific product (VA healthcare in this case)? Doesn't that violate free market economics? I'm not attacking you, I'm curious what is different in this case.

What do you believe are the key (say three) policy differences between you and the other republican candidates?

There is really no way to take that into account. At least not ethically. To truly account for those factors, you'd have to take a group of people that do not use cannabis so you have a full baseline profile, then expose them enough and for long enough to induce the addiction. At that point, you could reliably say that symptoms are a result of withdrawal not underlying symptoms. I agree that it's fairly likely, as you state, that these symptoms were always present and being treated with the marijuana.

That is the part of the statement I was referring to. VHA for vets is certainly within the free market.
