In this photo taken May 2, 2014, Kari Boiter, of Tacoma, Wash., poses for a photo at Rainier Xpress, a medical marijuana dispensary in Olympia, Wash. Boiter has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes pain, nausea and vomiting, and says marijuana replaced prescription drugs like steroids and antidepressants what were nearly ineffective for her.

FILE - In this Oct. 9, 2013, file photo, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki listens as he testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky says a leadership change may help resolve what he calls "dysfunction" at the Department of Veterans Affairs, following allegations of corruption and avoidable deaths at the veterans' hospital in Phoenix. McConnell says the tenure of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki is "embarrassing" and that the agency is in "a stunning period of dysfunction." McConnell isn't calling for Shinseki to step down, but says a change in leadership "might be a good thing."(AP Photo/ Evan Vucci, File)
