Fight For Those Who Fought For You
As federal patients, Veterans are being prescribed extremely addictive pharmaceuticals linked to widespread death across the country. Despite this fact, these pills remain at a lower classification within the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) than cannabis.
Cannabis has helped many people suffering from debilitating conditions such as PTSD, cancer, chronic pain, addiction withdrawal and has statistically lowered the suicide rate in states where it is “legal.”
Veterans Health Administration (VA) primary care teams should be educated on how to best implement cannabis into a veterans treatment plan. When a patient is a legal medical cannabis card holder as well as a veteran, they should be afforded the freedom to use cannabis within the VA system as a recognized medical alternative to psychiatric drugs without any discrimination or unjust actions against them.
Do you agree: Should veterans be able to treat themselves with medical marijuana?
If you do, please join us in the fight to provide veterans safe access and compassionate care within the Veterans Health Administration.
Dear Mr. President,
Please help our Veterans and Military Families across the nation. We are suffering greatly as a direct result of federal laws, and you have the power to change that.
Cannabis needs to be made available to our Veterans who are drowning in pharmaceuticals within the VA. Over half of our country has already legalized cannabis in way or another.
We need you to acknowledge our governments understanding of this herb as a natural medicine. It is painfully obvious to us that the scientific evidence supporting cannabis' medicinal properties is being intentionally ignored in Washington DC.
Thank you for taking the time to read this Sir, we hope you hear your troopers.
