The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs made a vocal opposition to three legislative efforts that would allow safe access to medicine for veterans under state law until such time that the U.S. Department of Justice allows for medical cannabis at the federal level. Three federal bills snaking their way through Congress hit a standstill thanks to the draconian stance of the VA.
Meanwhile, 23 veterans commit suicide every day – and that’s only the number the VA has publicly documented. Do you think we could help that tragic number drop by giving vets safe access to cannabis?
The benefits offered by cannabis to combat veterans suffering from PTSD are innumerable. Why do you suppose the VA is so vocally opposed to cannabis for vets? Yes, I am inviting the “conspiracy theories” linking the VA with Big Pharma (can we still call it that? Or can we all just agree that the VA and the pharmaceutical industry are in bed together?). Let’s chat about veterans affairs and cannabis.
