Veterans are allowed to consume cannabis without losing V.A. benefits. However, V.A. doctors are prohibited from assisting veterans with completing medical marijuana recommendations. This could end soon though, with the passing of new legislation at the federal level.
The Veterans Medical Marijuana Safe Harbor Act (S. 1183 / HR 2588) was introduced to the Senate and the House in April of 2021. If passed, the bill will expand medical marijuana access to military veterans. It will also allow V.A. doctors to discuss medical marijuana.
There has been a lot of research uncovering the benefits of cannabis for veterans. One study that took place in New Mexico between 2009 and 2011 concluded that cannabis reduces PTSD symptoms in some patients. Patients in the study who consumed cannabis reported a more than 75% reduction in Clinician Administered Posttraumatic Scale symptom scores.
More recent research out of Canada studied 24,089 patients. They concluded that cannabis was found to reduce “the association between post-traumatic stress disorder and severe depressive and suicidal states”. This means cannabis can help veterans suffering from depression or suicidal thoughts. These are two reasons why veterans are choosing cannabis.
