We are in full support of measures that allow veterans to participate with state programs for medical cannabis without fear of losing their military or veterans benefits.
To keep veterans from the healing benefits of THC and CBD, both of which are known to sooth pain and fight inflammation among other benefits, is not only negligent, it is unjust.
Medical cannabis, now legal in 29 states, is a common sense, safer alternative to many of the treatments now available to veterans. For far too long, doctors have handed out opiates like they’re candy, leading to heavy addiction among our veteran population. In this sense, cannabis is a safer alternative and it only makes sense that we make it available to every veteran in need.
