What are the Risks?
Although much is known about the addictive power of opioids and the associated risks, research into marijuana addiction and possible repercussions is in its infancy. There are risks in other categories specifically involving marijuana and veterans, however. For instance, because marijuana is still classified as a Schedule 1 drug and illegal at the federal level, a veteran runs the risk of losing the right to carry a weapon if he or she uses medical marijuana at this time. According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, “Any person who uses or is addicted to marijuana, regardless of whether his or her state has passed legislation authorizing marijuana for medicinal purposes is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance and is prohibited by Federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition.” There are several organizations attempting to correct the problem of access to medical marijuana, including the Veterans Cannabis Project, Weed for Warriors, and others. We believe veterans should have full legal access to medical marijuana and support the efforts of these organizations.
