In this article by the Huffington Post, the author discusses 10 reasons why she feels we will have Federal Medical Marijuana. #6 has me really interested as it related to the Veteran Affairs (VA) and prescribing Medical Marijuana. I would be extremely happy if I could just go to the VA and get my script refilled annually, instead of having to pay the $150 for a doctor to read over my medical records just to reconfirm everything I already know. I did not realize that the VA recently lifted a gag order on the VA in states where Medical Marijuana is legal. I frequent the VA in Connecticut bi-monthly for PTSD Therapy and counseling and I feel at times I’m treated as a “drug addict” when I go there. Recently, I have been treated better, maybe the doctors in the CT VA System are finally allowed to be vocal.
Please read the article for yourself, it brings an interesting perspective for the future of Medical Marijuana! I can only hope that she is right and the United States is finally moving in the correct direction!
