I received the following e-mail from the Florida medical marijuana campaign:
We talk to a lot of veterans in this campaign. Some have come to us because of major injuries they sustained, and are supporting medical marijuana because of how it has alleviated pain.
Others – old and young – have PTSD from combat situations – and find that marijuana keeps their mind steady and reduces the number of incidents. (It should be noted that PTSD is one of the conditions explicitly mentioned in the petition.)
There are many ways to honor veterans, and these brave and hard working men and women unquestionably deserve our thanks. But our veterans – as much as anyone – also deserve treatment options for their conditions.
We are scrambling to get medical marijuana on the ballot to make sure veterans and other Floridians with debilitating conditions get access to the medicine they need.
Please help us honor veterans by giving them more than thanks – lets give them freedom from arrest or imprisonment for treating their conditions. Contribute here – and John Morgan will multiply that donation by 9.
On behalf of United for Care, we thank all the men and women who have served our country – and are proud to work on your behalf on this issue.
