It's quite the conundrum for vets, who are, for all intents and purposes, employees of the federal government. It's still illegal under federal law, so I can see how this might play out with vets losing federal (VA) benefits. I don't agree with it, especially since the VA doctors can prescribe opiate based medications (narcotics) for pain and yet, they cannot prescribe cannabis for the same type of pain treatment...

They can drug the holy living bejesus out of you even when you are active, but when you are no longer in service they can't give you one substance that may take the place of all of the others? Makes no sense to me.

one thing i have always said is it is near impossible to OD on grass, you will just pass out. all the "legal" perscription and OTC drugs are easier to OD on, shoot whisky and you will have more trouble than smoking til you cant smoke anymore. i also think there is probly less side effects then some perscriptions. One problem though.... It is illegal like has been said before. should we legalize it? should we give it to vets? I dont know the answer. i guess it should be put on the ballot on a state by state basis, let the voters decide.... then if you want to use it bad enough you can move to a state where its legal.

I'm off the opinion, that while God grows it on his green earth, nothing should enter the body that causes and altered state of mind.

I realize this is a slightly unrealistic ideal, and I myself drank for a number of years.

But, I had my fill of bad experiences.

Bad experiences while I was in an altered state, and with others who were in an altered state.

I'm not against drinking, or really against smoking weed. And on the whole, I think if weed were legal and regulated, there would be less crime in general associated with it than alcohol.

But, I've personally found, with the past I've had, that I'm better off stone sober.

So I'd think this would need to be more of a case by case deal, than a blanket permission slip.

agreed.... i have never used a controled substance, (except caffiene) but some would argue that vicodin alters your state of mind and health professionals hand them out

Yes, and I have the same opinion concerning anything stronger than 800 milligram Motrin.

The vets (as long as I've been in) have served under the context of zero tolerance. I would rather see money spent in research, determine what exact compound can benefit PTSD patients, and see that placed in a regulated prescription. Without an alteration of the mind resulting in its use.

Reason for this, simple, how many patients in CA are abusing the 'medical' purpose?

And how many providers understand the difference between Chronic Stress, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

Because it's a freakin huge difference, with some similar symptoms.
