Dana Adams started this petition to Department of Veterans Affairs and

Our veterans are turning to cannabis at rapid rates with claims that it is giving them their lives back and getting them off of opioids. They had to fight for the ability to simply discuss cannabis with their VA doctor without fear of losing their VA benefits. Now that they can turn to their doctor, they are unfortunately learning that their doctors are not educated on Medical Cannabis and don’t know how to advise them.
 
The VA has been informed of this issue numerous times and by not addressing it they are doing a great disservice to the men and women who serve our country. Educating is not advocating! It is honoring your Hippocratic Oath and being prepared to properly serve your patients. With the rapid influx of legal medical cannabis in the majority of the states, every doctor in America has a moral and ethical obligation to get educated on it.
 
Let’s please execute an education plan now!
