U.S. military veterans of all time frames are needed to join a medical marijuana study, "One More Mission."
Ten thousand Vets are to be part of a minimum one year study/commitment to accumulate data on the use of cannabis by Vets who have a primary or secondary diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms, according to Al Byrne (US Navy, Ret.), cofounder and director of the group Patients Out of Time.
Vets must be in the 21 states and DC that have positive medical cannabis laws and have met their states requirements as a cannabis patient. Privacy is guaranteed, according to Byrne.
"Please circulate the website www.vptsmc.org far and wide," Byrne said.
"Vets are not treated equally in the U.S. - they receive "medical treatment by geography," Byrne said. "Vets in states without a medical cannabis regulation are not treated in VA facilities if they use medicinal cannabis."
"In 21 states and DC the VA treats them with care," Byrne said. "In the other states they are escorted from VA property."
"Medical treatment by geography is unethical, illogical, immoral and a disgrace to the U.S.," Byrne said.
Byrne invites everyone to call your federal Senator and Representative and demand equal treatment of all our Vets.
"It's the least you can do and I encourage you all to do more, Veteran or citizen," Byrne said. "When your country is wrong - change it."
