In announcing their appointments on Wednesday, Boehner and Weld expressed hope that increasing access to medical marijuana use could bolster health care remedies for veterans. The pair of former politicians in a joint statement questioned the Department of Veterans Affairs’ refusal to offer the drug “as an alternative to the harmful opioids that are ravishing our communities.”

*snicker*

Ryan announces he's quitting. Boehner buddies up to blunts. What a time to be alive!

I can understand the use. Ravishing is to forcefully take away something. AKA we're losing them to drugs. Ravage is probably better, but the former still works.
