Currently, under federal guidelines and laws, cannabis is considered a schedule 1 substance. This listing states that cannabis has no medicinal properties and a high potential for abuse ( ). However, it has been proven that cannabis has several medicinal properties; a patent is even held by the U.S. government stating that it has medicinal properties ( ).

There are many individuals living in the Hoosier State that suffer from terminal illness and other severe conditions. There are over 476,000 veterans living in Indiana ( ), and the current statistics show that between 10 and 30 percent of vets are currently suffering from PTSD, depending on the war they served in ( ). That means that between 47,000 and 142,000 veterans living in Indiana suffer from PTSD. PTSD is treatable with cannabis, and the meds that are currently used to treat PTSD have a vast array of negative side effects.

This is only one small example of how medicinal cannabis can help residents of the Hoosier state. It treats a wide array of other ailments and illnesses, and can provide much needed tax relief to the citizens of this state. Many states are seeing a positive outcome after legalizing medicinal cannabis. The well-being of our residents is at stake. We need to seriously consider this action as soon as possible.
