Veterans Health Care: Veteran Organizations Absent From Fight
We now have the Federal Government with an official policy at the VA regarding medical marijuana and an official Government policy that there is no such thing as medical marijuana. OOPS! The science and logic regarding the benefits of medical marijuana are no longer in doubt. Medical marijuana is most effective in treating Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD), neuropathic pain from traumatic injuries such as loss of a limb traumatic brain injury and a host of other conditions suffered by our Veterans.
So where are the major Veterans Organizations on the issue of Veteran access to medical marijuana? Are they concerned at all with making this wonderful medicine available to our Veterans?
