Congress keeps blocking veterans from getting legal access to medicinal marijuana

The federal government’s absurd, corrupt attack on cannabis has been a cause for controversy for quite some time. Considering the American people are well aware that marijuana isn’t this evil substance that the mainstream media wants us to believe, it’s bizarre that the feds are still trying to postpone its inevitable legalization. The latest example of this, however, is perhaps the most shameful of all.

Among medical marijuana’s numerous health benefits is the fact that it limits the negative effects of PTSD, which affects numerous military veterans. And yet Congress just chose to block an amendment that would allow veterans to obtain medical marijuana recommendations through the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Tom Angell of Marijuana reports, “The news comes just one day after Congressional Republicans blocked amendments that would allow state-legal cannabis businesses to access banking services and let Washington, D.C. spend its own money to legalize, tax and regulate marijuana sales from being considered on the House floor.”

Of course this all comes back to money. Of course it does…

After it was revealed long ago that marijuana wasn’t particularly dangerous and also featured countless positives in regards to holistic health, it became clear that everyone trying to prevent its legalization was doing so because they have some sort of financially lucrative reasoning. This is not a morality issue. This is not a health issue. This is a money issue and money issues — when it comes to the government — are the most disgusting of them all.

As free Americans, we owe a lot to our veterans, and limiting their freedoms — the same freedoms that they courageously fought to defend — is woefully un-American. Congress should be ashamed of themselves, but if they’re not going to admit and correct their own mistakes, it’s up to us to educate the masses about the injustices going on in the world in regards to cannabis regulations.

This is not right and this will not stand.
