In a press briefing today, U.S. Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin noted medical marijuana’s potential to help military veterans.
Tom Angell, founder and chairman of Marijuana Majority, released the following statement:
“These comments, coming from a medical doctor at the highest levels of the federal government, seriously undercut the attorney general’s contention that marijuana has no medical benefits. It’s time for the Trump administration to reschedule cannabis and to issue a new VA policy that lets the department’s doctors recommend marijuana to veterans who could use it to heal their war wounds.”
Marijuana Majority is dedicated to making sure the media, politicians and government officials treat marijuana as a serious issue that is important to a growing majority of Americans.
