"As a sufferer of multiple sclerosis since 1999, I use medical marijuana to ease my painful spasms. Marijuana allows me to function normally instead of having to endure the debilitating side effects and mental fogginess that I found accompanied opiate-based painkillers.
I'm a proud 22-year veteran of the armed services, and I wish more veterans organizations and VA doctors would speak out on behalf of their patients who face potential federal arrest, prosecution, and withholding of VA medical services for using marijuana, even when they have a recommendation from their doctor. It's time for our federal government to stop prosecuting medical marijuana patients, especially our veterans who have been willing to pay the ultimate price for their country.
I strongly endorse the mission of Veterans for Medical Marijuana Access."
