VAC PUTS VETERANS IN THE RED ZONE

The federal government announced an arbitrary and ultimately dangerous reduction of the allowable reimbursement of medical cannabis for Canada's veterans.

The suicide epidemic among our veteran community is staggering. Some figures calculate that the ratio of suicide for Canada's veterans surpass even those of our brothers south of the border.

The rise in cannabis medication prescriptions to our veterans can be attributed to only one thing: the medicine works. The suicide rate within the veteran patient community on cannabinoid therapy is significantly well below the national average with most provinces having no suicides at all. We have seen cannabinoid therapy restore families. We have seen broken men and women regain their dignity and purpose.

We have seen and documented cannabis as an agent to help break the crippling grip of opioid and alcohol addiction. We have seen defeated men, rise from the ashes and become productive members of society. Against all odds, we have made progress in the fight against PTSD.

As a veteran organization we feel that with this decision, the federal government is putting our veterans and their families in danger. They will have blood on their hands.

I hereby commits to all veteran patients that I will do anything in my power to safeguard you from any adverse affect of this decision as we continue our mission to reach each and every veteran in need of this life-saving medication.
