The VA's Contradictory Stance on Medical Marijuana
Only time will tell whether or not veterans will receive much-needed support from the government and Department of Veterans Affairs beyond flimsy policies that Secretary Shulkin has responded to. Veterans themselves are turning to advocacy groups like Krawitz’s Veterans for Medical Cannabis Access and are demanding that the country they’ve served and the government that they answer to does more than give them half-answers and bunk solutions. Despite these obstacles, the future looks bright for proponents of medical marijuana—as the public continues to offer their support, the government will eventually have no choice but to follow suit.
