Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is opposing Democrat plans to add provisions on marijuana and a permitting reform to the annual defense bill.

When speaking on the Senate floor on Tuesday, McConnell (R-Ky.) referred to the National Defense Authorization Act. He claimed that Democrats are trying to add partisan projects instead of putting the U.S. military first.
