Veterans are nearly unanimous in their support for research on medical
marijuana — and a majority favor legalizing pot for medical use, an
American Legion survey found.

The findings from the nation's largest wartime veterans' service
organization were released Thursday, and involved more than 1,300
respondents.

According to the survey, 92 percent of veteran households support
research into the efficacy of medical cannabis for mental and physical
conditions, and 83 percent believe the federal government should
legalize medical cannabis nationwide.

Further, 82 percent of those survey indicated they would want to have
medical cannabis as a federally legal treatment option.

The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.

"Support for medical cannabis, and research on medical cannabis is high
across veterans and caregivers, all age ranges, gender, political
leanings and geography," said a memorandum from Five Corners Strategies,
which conducted the survey for the Legion.


Included in the findings, the survey showed:

Support for medical cannabis research is consistent nationwide, across
ages, gender, political affiliation, and geography.
60 percent of respondents do not live in states where medical cannabis
is currently legal.
79 percent of respondents aged 60 or above supported federally legalized
medical cannabis.
22 percent of veterans stated they are currently using cannabis to treat
a medical condition.
40 percent of caregivers stated they know a veteran who is using medical
cannabis to alleviate a medical condition.
"It is also clear from the survey that veterans are accessing cannabis
to assist them in states with and without medical marijuana programs,"
Five Corners said.

The Legion adopted a resolution last year calling on the Drug
Enforcement Administration to reclassify marijuana from its current
illicit status to a category "that, at a minimum, will recognize
cannabis as a drug with potential medical value," The Washington Post
reported.

The resolution also called on the DEA "to license privately funded
medical marijuana production operations."

What do you have against the American Legion, Jack?

If I recall correctly, decades ago when I joined,
they asked for and looked at my DD214.

I always thought my local club was a pleasant enough place.
Generally OK people. But then 'the powers that be' decided
the building and the land should be sold, so they could
spend more money on outreach projects.
So they bought cheap vacant land 'far' out. And I have
no interest in driving out that far. Oh well!

That's just a bar and nothing else. I don't see much difference
between booze and pot. I hear the argument that we could legalize and
save resources... and being a hopeless drunk is so great? What social
good does alcohol do us? OK, I know, you're gonna get your drugs no
matter what we do... been there, done that. (Got hepatitis C to prove
it!)

Basically, the Americal Legion is just someone else pushing dope,
that's all. Just because their version is legal doesn't make it
positive.

Jones, what in the world is your point?

I understand from your posts, that you want even medicinal
THC kept illegal.
And, then you equate THC to 'booze'?
Are you really wanting to try prohibition again?
That would be VERY stupid!

In my state, and many other states, the voters have
spoken and legalized a very regulated marijuana industry
for both recreational and medicinal purposes.

But, as with many other subjects, you think the voters
are wrong.
Boooo Hooo!

I am for allowing places for friends to gather and talk.

American Legion: Majority Vets Support Marijuana Legalization
Well, we're mixed. I'd doubt that we support full "legalization";
however, we'd be more likely to go for "decriminalization". Going
after the pot-puffers is a waste of law enforcement resources, so
don't worry about them. Let's don't put our social stamp of approval
on it; OTOH, we don't need to spend law enforcement resources on
chasing some kid with a joint.

The issue is that the proceeds of pot support terrorism... if you want
to puff pot, knock yer lights out, I guess... I don't care. Problems
develop when we have an unregulated market on a porous border. The
Donald wants to lock down our southern border with the wall and I
doubt it can be done.

I have lived close to the Texas/Mexico border all of my life and I
know first hand how violent that trade is. Pot comes north and the
same pipeline ships arms south; it's not about some innocent kid
puffing a joint. In the US, we get whatever we want right when we
want it and we *want* dope! You don't get pot without also getting
everything else people *want*... and we want coke... we want smack...
we want meth.

I wish it were as simple as you see it.

Jones

Still pretty screwed up, in thinking POTUS Obama was honest.

And that my wife's health care plan, that his lies
destroyed was a sham.

And that Hillary with all her lies, and cheating, and
'pay to play' was the proper choice.

But you think that you know better than the voters, Oh well.
