Our nation's numerous wounded veterans got the best of battlefield care and surgery but after that, we are letting them down miserably.

The cocktails of narcotic pain meds, antidepressants, etc. the VA gives them don't help them return to the best lives possible. 

"The VA has had me on so much & so many different meds, they literally have nothing left to prescribe me. None of them do anything except give me all the zombie like effects, barely any brain activity to function...mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, antidepressants, experimental stuff, anti-siezure meds that were supposed to also be used as mental health drugs.  Using CBD oil has let me completely stop all the DRUGS the VA has been trying to shove down my throat for over a decade.” - Army veteran

Other nations have tested and found CBD helpful for pain and for problems with sleep and many other things. 

Congress passed a Federal Farm Bill two years ago that permits hemp plants with low THC to be grown in every state and today a number of states are already permitting farming low THC hemp. It's not just for the fiber for clothing.

Currently, the FDA seems to be moving towards allowing the sale of CBD topicals, (which is why you can find these products in most major grocery and drugstores) but is moving towards an outright ban on ingestible CBD products.  We can all take Vitamin C and echinacea, both promoted to help when we get colds, even though thorough testing reveals neither do a thing. CBD does not harm anyone and it has the real potential to help our veterans... and those of us civilians too, who have pain, whether from arthritis to sports injuries and those who just have a hard time falling and staying asleep.

Tell the FDA to bring clear legalization to CBD ingestibles, as well.
