Oregon Democratic Rep. Earl Blumenauer sent a letter to Illinois Republican Sen. Mark Kirk on Wednesday blasting him for a remark he made over using medical marijuana to treat veterans.

"These wounded warriors should be treated with dignity, respect, and concern, and we should be helping them access the care they need," Blumenauer wrote. "It is simply unconscionable that instead, you disparage them as drug addicts."

Blumenauer's letter comes in response to Kirk's remarks during an April Senate vote to expand veterans' access to medical marijuana. Kirk is opposed to using pot to treat veterans.

"I don't think we have too few high veterans out there," Kirk said in April.
