They Said It On Marijuana, Quotable Saturday, Part CXVIII

Marijuana and Legalization

And yet, medical marijuana still isn’t legal in the vast majority of states. Despite the recent go-ahead by congress to approve medical marijuana for veterans, the VA released a statement that it cannot endorse medical marijuana and VA patients may not possess medical marijuana while in a VA facility.

We’ve written time and again about individuals and families have had to another state to attain medical marijuana and of how criminal charges have been brought against people for using medical marijuana for themselves or for their children. But the laws regarding medical cannabis are slow to change.

How much longer must patients wait to receive healthcare from which they might benefit? How much longer must patients wait to be free to make their own choices?
