Veterans find Compassion in Medical Marijuana

Veterans Day has a way of bringing to light the many issues that our veterans face after they’ve returned home from the front-lines. Medical marijuana has long been known for it’s therapeutic qualities and used by veterans and soldiers, and with more states legalizing medical use, marijuana has become the new “don’t ask, don’t tell” for soldiers and veterans.

While soldiers and veterans have been using marijuana medically for decades, whether prescribed or not, it is becoming an increased source of compassion and relief. The number of veterans who leave the armed forces with PSTD is estimated to be around 12-18% according to most studies.

Many of these veterans look to medical marijuana for relief from the symptoms of PTSD, this is not new news. What is surprising is the number of veterans who are reporting that they also find relief in growing and cultivating medical marijuana, and as this number increases, the benefits of medical marijuana for veterans will have to be acknowledged by the VA.

We would like to thank all the men and women who served our nation. We hope that as the stigma surrounding marijuana is lifted, the avenues for compassion and relief continue to open for our veterans.
