September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

BREAKING: Access To Medical Marijuana Hinges On Monday Vote!

Veterans' access to medical marijuana hinges on a Monday vote.

From Military.com:

A measure allowing veterans easier access to medical marijuana garnered bipartisan support in Congress last year and nearly became law. A vote on Monday could be the end of the line this year in another attempt to pass it.

The House Rules Committee will soon decide whether to allow Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., to offer an amendment to the Department of Veterans Affairs budget on the House floor. His "Veterans Equal Access" amendment would allow VA doctors to recommend medical marijuana to their veteran patients in states where the drug is legal. VA providers would also be able to complete veterans' paperwork required by some states to purchase marijuana.

If the Rules Committee approves the amendment, Blumenauer will offer it up later next week when the House debates the VA appropriations bill. If the committee rejects it, the amendment will die before an opportunity for debate.

"All we're trying to do is make conversations between veterans and their VA providers about all treatment options more accessible," Blumenauer said in an emailed statement. "We have Republicans, Democrats, and veterans behind this effort. Our hope is that the Rules Committee will take note of the overwhelming bipartisan support for this amendment, show compassion for our veterans, and give us a vote."

This marks Blumenauer's fourth time trying to pass the legislation.

The amendment failed in the House in 2014 and 2015, but passed 233-189 last year. It was also approved in the Senate, with a vote of 89-8. But during negotiations, the measure was stripped out of the VA appropriations bill by a conference committee established to reconcile differences between the House and Senate versions.

In 2016, the Veterans Equal Access amendment didn't have to go through the Rules Committee. The additional step this year is mandatory for all amendments to the VA appropriations bill.

"We feel this should be a priority, given the support for it in the past," said Nicole L'Esperance, communications director for Blumenauer.

The Veterans Equal Access amendment recently progressed in the Senate.

The Senate Appropriations Committee voted 24-7 on July 13 to include the amendment in that chamber's VA appropriations bill. Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., and Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., offered the amendment.

"To not enable an individual to have the conversation with their doctor about the pros and cons of this potential remedy is to take away a dialogue important to a veteran's health," Merkley said. "It's important we pass this here and make sure it survives conference committee and goes to the president. Let's take this opportunity to stand up for our soldiers."

Daines' and Merkley's states are two of the 29 in the country that permit some form of cannabis use. Daines said the restrictions on the VA from discussing marijuana were a "violation of veterans' rights to talk openly and freely with their doctor."

"When a veteran in Montana walks into a VA facility, they can't discuss all the options available to them, but they can discuss them at the non-VA facility next door," Daines said.

More veterans are rallying behind marijuana as a potential treatment for service-connected health problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain, and they see it as an alternative to addictive opioids.

The American Legion, which has a membership of 2.2 million veterans, decided last August that it would advocate to remove marijuana from the list of Schedule I drugs, which, along with heroin, LSD and Ecstasy, are designated as having no medical use. Reclassifying marijuana would remove barriers for scientific research.

The American Legion is attempting to wield some of its political influence with Congress, the VA and President Donald Trump.
