First Senate Marijuana Bill Of 2019 Would Force Study On Medical Cannabis For Veterans

The first Senate marijuana bill of the new Congress focuses on increasing research on the medical benefits of cannabis for military veterans.

The legislation, introduced by Sens. Jon Tester (D-MT) and Dan Sullivan (R-AK) on Thursday, would direct the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to conduct clinical trials on the effectiveness of medical marijuana in the treatment of conditions common among military veterans. While the new bill has the same title as a proposal the bipartisan duo filed during the last Congress, its language—which is not yet online but was obtained by Marijuana Moment—much more forcefully directs VA to begin researching medical cannabis than the earlier legislation did.

 

Whereas last year’s version simply said that the department “may conduct and support research relating to the efficacy and safety of forms of cannabis,” nothing in current federal law actually prevents it from doing so. This latest version stipulates that the VA, which has been reluctant to engage in marijuana studies, “shall” begin conducting clinical trials on cannabis. “The VA needs to listen to the growing number of veterans who have already found success in medicinal cannabis in easing their pain and other symptoms,” Tester, the ranking member on the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, said in a press release. “Our bill will make sure the VA takes proactive steps to explore medicinal cannabis as a safe and effective alternative to opioids for veterans suffering from injuries or illness received in the line of duty.” The proposed double-blind randomized controlled clinical trials are meant to cover the potential therapeutic applications of marijuana for post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain. In particular, the department would have to study areas such as medical marijuana’s effect on opioid, benzodiazepine and alcohol consumption, as well as inflammation, sleep quality, spasticity, agitation, quality of life, mood, anxiety, social functioning, suicidal ideation and frequency of nightmares or night terrors. Marijuana reform advocates praised the new legislation’s more forceful language as compared to the prior bill. “The more assertive language is great improvement to this commonsense research bill that could ultimately help veterans with debilitating conditions,” Michael Liszewski, principal of The Enact Group, a lobbying and consulting firm that focuses on cannabis issues, told Marijuana Moment. “The Department of Veterans Affairs already has the ability to conduct this research and the previous language would have let the Department continue to drag its heels,” he said. “It’s sort of like the difference between a parent telling their child ‘maybe you should clean up your room’ versus ‘you will clean up your room, now.'”Sullivan said that he’s heard from many veteran constituents who are interested in finding an alternative to prescription painkillers for their pain. “Many of our nation’s veterans already use medicinal cannabis, and they deserve to have full knowledge of the potential benefits and side effects of this alternative therapy,” he said in a press release. During the last Congress, the Senate version of the legislation garnered six cosponsors, while 55 representatives ultimately signed onto the House version. The bill became the first standalone piece of marijuana legislation to clear a congressional panel when the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee approved it in May. Nonetheless, VA leadership remained reluctant about engaging in marijuana research. “VA is committed to researching and developing effective ways to help Veterans cope with post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain conditions,” VA Secretary David Shulkin wrote in a letter to lawmakers last year. “However, federal law restricts VA’s ability to conduct research involving medical marijuana, or to refer veterans to such projects.”

What Happens In The Liver When You Eat Edibles By admin - October 30, 2018

Have you ever wondered why the effects of smoking and eating cannabis are different?

Here’s how the liver changes the high.  Cannabis-infused foods are some of the strongest cannabis product out there.  But, what makes the edibles high so different from inhaling cannabis?   Interestingly, the answer to this question lies in how cannabis edibles are broken down in the body.   For an edible to work, it has to first pass through the body’s primary detox organ, the liver.   Here’s what happens in the liver when you eat edibles.

 

  

 

The variation comes from differences in the depth of the inhale, breath holding, and the duration of the puff. For oral cannabis, the bioavailability of THC drops to 10 to 20 percent.

 

You may be wondering: if oral THC is less bioavailable, why are edibles so strong? Unlike inhaled cannabis, oral cannabis is processed by the liver before it produces psychoactive effects. In the liver, THC is broken down into a smaller metabolite called 11-hydroxy-THC.

 

Incidentally, 11-hydroxy-THC may actually be more bioavailable than THC. The theory goes that once released into the blood stream, 11-hydroxy-THC more readily crosses what is known as the blood-brain barrier. The blood-brain barrier is a membrane of cells that makes up an extra selective filter for blood that passes into the brain. Back in the 1970s, researchers treated 20 male volunteers with either THC or 11-hydroxy-THC. The researchers observed that while both compounds produced similar psychoactive effects, the 11-hydroxy-THC kicked in more quickly. Estimates suggest that the liver transforms 100% of oral THC into it’s more potent metabolite. The “first pass effect”

 

There are some circumstances where you may not feel much of an effect from an edible. After consuming edible cannabis, the liver performs a first pass metabolism. Here, sometimes many cannabis patients and enthusiasts experience some problems. The liver can be so good at breaking down foreign compounds that it breaks down the THC in the edible too much to produce an effect. Often referred to as the “first pass effect”, the liver’s initial metabolism can mean that the effects of the edible won’t work. To resolve this, eating a meal prior to the edible may help. Though, this will slow down the activation time of the edible. If you want to try making your own edibles, give the LEVO Oil Infuser a shot.

Woman Replaces 40 Medications With Raw Cannabis Juice

More and more we are beginning to understand that marijuana is far more than a street-level ‘drug’.

 

In fact, research shows that it’s a healing plant — and it doesn’t have to get you high.

 

And as we learn more about this healing plant, we learn there are really a multitude of uses and methods to obtaining its benefits

One of the latest methods of reaping its benefits is juicing, as one woman learned the hard way

Juicing is a great way to get the best stuff out of plant materials

 

It makes digestion easy and allows your body to really make the most of what you put into it

So, it stands to reason that many of the benefits associated with smoking, vaporizing, or eating cannabis could be enhanced through juicing

 

High-aside, some argue juicing raw cannabis to be the most beneficial, and it does all of this without getting users stoned

 

Raw cannabis is not psychoactive. The beneficial compounds within are known as cannabidiols (CBD) and they are not the THC responsible for getting you highInstead, as NaturalNews reports, CBDs “bridge the gap of neurotransmission in the central nervous system, including in the brain by providing a two-way system of communication that completes a positive ‘feedback loop’”.

Taking Ibuprofen for Just a Week Increases Your Chance of Having a Heart Attack by 50% Posted on: October 3, 2018 at 3:08 pm Last updated: October 4, 2018 at 4:19 pm Just because a drug doesn’t require a prescription, doesn’t mean it’s harmless or should be taken without careful consideration.

 

A recent study revealed taking ibuprofen and other NSAIDs for even a short period of time can have an adverse effect on your heart health.

 

 

Quick definition: NSAIDs (ie. non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are used for pain relief, reducing inflammation, bringing down fevers and preventing blood clotting.

The tide is turning: Big Pharma billionaire arrested, charged with conspiracy and bribery of doctors

I almost never thought I’d see the day when a Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that day has arrived.

 

“Federal authorities arrested the billionaire founder and owner of Insys Therapeutics Thursday on charges of bribing doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl product to their patients,” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation, one of the best sources of real journalism in America today.

 

Addictive drugs that include opioids, we now know, are claiming over 64,000 lives a year in the United States alone.More than 20,000 Americans died of synthetic opioid overdoses last year, and millions are addicted to opioids

DEA takes some CBD off Schedule 1 – with FDA approval

This story has been updated to provide additional details from the DEA announcement.)

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has taken some cannabidiol off the most restrictive class of controlled substances, a move that allows the sale of the first nonsynthetic, cannabis-derived medicine to win federal approval.

The agency announced Thursday that drugs including “finished dosage formulations” of CBD with THC below 0.1% will be considered Schedule 5 drugs, as long as the medications have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

It is the first time the agency has removed any type of cannabis from Schedule 1.

The action came three months after the FDA approved Epidiolex, a CBD preparation for rare types of epilepsy that is made from cannabis grown in the United Kingdom.

 

 

If the DEA had not taken this step, doctors would not have been able to prescribe the medication because Schedule 1 drugs cannot be prescribed. This rule is why physicians in states with medical marijuana laws recommend the plant but can’t prescribe it.

 

The change also means Epidiolex will be distributed through traditional pharmaceutical

channels, from a doctor’s prescription to a drug store, instead of through a marijuana dispensary or designated marijuana caregiver.

The rescheduling affects more than Epidiolex. Here are the details from the announcement:

    • gs that contain CBD derived from cannabis and no more than 0.1 percent tetrahydrocannabinols.” So even though Epidiolex is the only formulation that currently meets the definition, the change could eventually affect other CBD formulations.
    • It’s still not legal to make CBD in the U.S. The DEA said that “the bulk cannabis material used to make the Epidiolex formulation (as opposed to the FDA-approv
    The DEA said the new scheduling applies to “FDA-approved drug
    • FDA-approved drug product in finished dosage form) will remain in schedule 1.”

    A Schedule 5 drug is still illegal without a prescription. The DEA says Schedule 5 drugs have a low potential for abuse and are generally pain relievers and antidiarrheal medications. Other Schedule 5 drugs include Lyrica and prescription-strength Robitussin with codeine.

    Cannabis entrepreneurs cheered the new classification, even though it currently applies to

only one drug for rare diseases and has a price tag that may limit the market.

London-based GW Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Epidiolex, has said it will charge $32,500 a year for the treatment, in line with other medications for intractable epilepsy.

As a result, many patients likely will wait to see if insurance covers the drug, a decision usually driven by another federal agency, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

That agency determines what is included for recipients of federal health benefits.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Multistate medical marijuana operators tapped for Virginia’s CBD program

The state’s Board of Pharmacy reviewed 51 applicants to produce CBD products in five areas of Virginia.

 

The winning applicants are called “pharmaceutical processors” and must grow, process and sell the cannabis products at one location, though Virginia patients can visit any of the five.

The licensees, which have one year to become operational, are:

  • Columbia Care, a multistate cannabis producer based in New York. The Virginia addition gives the company operations in 10 states, plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico. Columbia Care’s license covers easternmost Virginia, including Norfolk and Virginia Beach.
  • PharmaCann, based in Oak Park, Illinois. The firm already grows and sells medical marijuana in Illinois and New York state. PharmaCann’s license covers much of northern Virginia, including Charlottesville and Fredericksburg.
  • Green Leaf Medical, based in Frederick, Maryland. The company also has operations in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Green Leaf’s Virginia license covers the south-central area of the state, including Richmond.

  • Dalitso, which plans to open in Manassas, Virginia. Dalitso’s license covers Washington DC’s southern suburbs, including Alexandria.
  • Dharma Pharmaceuticals, based in Bristol, Virginia. Dharma’s license covers the western region of the state.

Virginia requires companies vying for licenses to be vertically integrated, and the first wave of licensees will produce only CBD or THC-A oils, which are nonintoxicating.

VA Medicinal Cannabis Research Act of 2018

There is one summary for H.R.5520. Bill summaries are authored by CRS.

Shown Here:
Introduced in House (04/16/2018)
VA Medicinal Cannabis Research Act of 2018

This bill authorizes the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to conduct and support research on the efficacy and safety of certain forms of cannabis and cannabis delivery for veterans enrolled in the VA health care system diagnosed with conditions such as chronic pain or post-traumatic stress disorder.

Collected data shall be preserved in a manner that facilitates further research

 

 

Every Veteran Deserves Legal Access To Medical Marijuana

Let’s start with the facts. There are approximately 2.7 million American veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and according to the Department of Veterans Affairs, upward of 20% of these veterans experience post-traumatic stress or depression.

Between 2000 and 2014, over 300,000 service members were diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury.

 Veterans are treated with “cocktails” of prescription drugs, including powerful and addictive opiates that are far more dangerous, and far less effective, than cannabis. 

Veterans are taking matters into their own hands, and one of the most effective treatment tools they are choosing is medical marijuana.

I have talked to countless veterans in personal meetings and in focus groups; they attest to medical marijuana’s efficacy as a treatment.

 Expert support for medical marijuana is broad and diverse, and includes the American College of Physicians, the American Public Health Association, and the American Nurses Association.

 Congress can start by passing proposed meaningful legislation, such as the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States Act, which would allow VA healthcare providers to openly discuss and recommend medical marijuana for their patients in states where it is legal.

Eventually, medical marijuana must be legalized under all relevant federal and state laws.

I founded the Veterans Chapter pro medicinal Cannabis in Puerto Rico because I believe that the topic deserves focused, comprehensive attention at the national level.

Though I am a certified medical marijuana patient, I am also a veteran who believes that medical marijuana is an important tool for veterans in their medical treatments.

. By investing in education, advocacy and research, and pursuing partnerships with likeminded organizations,to ensure that veterans today and in future generations can improve their quality of life through access to medical marijuana.

.Veterans need better and more effective treatments for the visible and invisible wounds they sustained in the line of duty.

As veterans seek to make smart and responsible choices about their own treatments, medical marijuana must be a legal option.

THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT WE NEED TO FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS ...

A DOCUMENTARY

THE HIDDEN ENEMY

Inside Psychiatry’s Covert Agenda

EXPOSES THE COVERT OPERATION BEHIND MILITARY SUICIDES

In early 2013, the official website of the United States Department of Defense announced the startling statistic that the number of military suicides in 2012 had far exceeded the total of those killed in battle—an average of nearly one a day. A month later came an even more sobering statistic from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs: veteran suicide was running at 22 a day—about 8000 a year.

The situation became so dire that the U.S. Secretary of Defense called suicide in the military an “epidemic.”

Some have claimed that this spate of self-harm is because of the stresses of war. But the facts reveal that 85% of military suicides have not seen combat—and 52% never even deployed.

So what unsuspected factor is causing military suicide rates to soar?

According to the new documentary The Hidden Enemy: Inside Psychiatry’s Covert Agenda, all evidence points in one direction: the soaring rates of psychiatric drug prescribing since 2003. Known medication side effects of these drugs such as increased aggression and suicidal thinking are reflected in similar uptrends in the rates of military domestic violence, child abuse and sex crimes, as well as self-harm.

Pull the string further and you’ll find psychiatrists ever widening the definitions of what it means to be “mentally ill,” especially when it comes to post traumatic stress disorder in soldiers—and PTSD in veterans. And in psychiatry, diagnoses of psychological disorders such as PTSD, personality disorder and social anxiety disorder are almost inevitably followed by the prescription of at least one psychiatric drug.

Psychiatrists know that their drugs do not actually cure anything, but merely mask symptoms. They are well aware of their many dangerous side effects, including possible addiction. However, they claim that the risks of the medication side effects are exceeded by their benefits. And while the soldier’s real problem goes unaddressed, his health deteriorates.

In the face of these grim military suicide statistics, more and more money is being lavished on psychiatry: the U.S. Pentagon now spends $2 billion a year on mental health alone. The Veterans Administration’s mental health budget has skyrocketed from less than $3 billion in 2007 to nearly $7 billion in 2014—all while conditions continue to worsen.

The Hidden Enemy reveals the entire situation in stark relief, while urging that soldiers and vets become educated on the true dangers of psychiatry and psychiatric drugs. The answer lies in their right to full and honest informed consent—as well as exercising their right to refuse treatment. Our service members need to know there are safe and effective non-psychiatric solutions to the horrors of combat stress, and that these solutions will not subject them to dangerous and toxic treatments that will only send their health spiraling downward.

Senate Panel Approves Medical Marijuana for Veterans

 

Senate Panel Approves Medical Marijuana for Veterans

 

The Senate Appropriations Committee approved the amendment, offered by Sen. Steve Daines and Sen. Jeff Merkley.

Just one day after the House Rules Committee, led by prohibitionist Representative Pete Sessions (R-TX), blocked multiple amendments related to cannabis from receiving consideration by the full House, a U.S. Senate panel voted on Thursday to allow doctors with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to issue medical marijuana recommendations to military veterans.

Senate Appropriations Committee approved the amendment, offered by Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) and Jeff Merkley (D-OR), on a voice vote, reported the Marijuana Moment.

The measure “simply allows veterans to discuss that option [medical cannabis] with their VA doc or physician,” Daines said during a brief debate.

Merkley added that it is an “incredible inconvenience for veterans to be told they have to seek out a whole new medical system” to get cannabis recommendations.

Among the amendments offered on Wednesday, the most critical one was the Veterans Equal Access, which would allow VA doctors to fill out the authorizing forms needed for veterans to obtain state-legal medical marijuana.

In the past, previous versions of the cannabis recommendation measure have been approved by the full House and Senate, but have never been enacted into law.

Under current VA internal policy, government physicians are barred from filling out medical cannabis recommendations for veterans, even in states where it is legal.

If the measure approved by senators on Thursday is included in final Fiscal Year 2019 spending legislation for the VA, explained Tom Angell in Marijuana Moment, the Veterans Department would no longer be able to enforce its ban on medical marijuana recommendations.

Congressman Earl Blumenauer, (D-OR), author of the amendment and legislation by the same name, blasted Pete Sessions after the Texas prohibitionist scuttled the amendments on Wednesday.

“For the second year, Pete Sessions has shown that he does not care about the health and well-being of our veterans—who are speaking out across the country. All they want is fair and equal treatment, and the ability to consult with their own physician on all treatment options.”

 

FDA and Marijuana

 

Looking for Treatment

The FDA understands that caregivers and patients are looking for treatment options for unmet medical needs. In some instances, patients or their caregivers are turning to marijuana in an attempt to treat conditions such as seizures and chemotherapy-induced nausea.

Untested Drugs can have Unknown Consequences

Over the last few decades, there has been significant interest in the potential utility of marijuana for a variety of medical conditions, including those that already have FDA-approved therapies.

More recently, several states have also passed laws that remove state restrictions on health care professionals using marijuana as a medical treatment for a variety of conditions. A number of other states are considering similar legislation regarding the use of marijuana in medical settings.

 The FDA is aware that there is considerable interest in the use of marijuana to attempt to treat a number of medical conditions, including, for example, glaucoma, AIDS wasting syndrome, neuropathic pain, cancer, multiple sclerosis, chemotherapy-induced nausea, and certain seizure disorders.

 

 

 

FDA Supports Sound Scientific Research

The FDA also has an important role to play in supporting scientific research into the medical uses of marijuana and its constituents in scientifically valid investigations as part of the agency’s drug review and approval process. As a part of this role, the FDA supports those in the medical research community who intend to study marijuana.

The FDA also supports research into the medical use of marijuana and its constituents through cooperation with other federal agencies involved in marijuana research. Conducting clinical research using marijuana involves interactions with other federal agencies:

  • cultivation of marijuana for medical research and has contracted with the University of Mississippi to grow marijuana for research at a secure facility. Marijuana of varying potencies and compositions is available. DEA also may allow additional growers to register with the DEA to produce and distribute marijuana for research purposes.

State Legislation on Marijuana

Several states have either passed laws that remove state restrictions on the medical use of marijuana and its derivatives or are considering doing so. The FDA supports researchers who conduct adequate and well-controlled clinical trials which may lead to the development of safe and effective marijuana products to treat medical conditions. We have talked to several states, including Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, New York and Pennsylvania, who are considering support for medical research of marijuana and its derivatives to ensure that their plans meet federal requirements and scientific standards.

DEA Approves First Ever Marijuana Drug Trial For PTSD In Veterans

Senate Approves Medical Marijuana For Military Veterans And Advances Hemp Legalization Published 1 day ago on June 25, 2018 By Tom Angell

U.S. military veterans would be allowed to receive recommendations for medical marijuana from government doctors under legislation approved by the Senate on Monday.

 

The provision, part of large-scale legislation to fund parts of the federal government including the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) through Fiscal Year 2019, would also protect veterans from losing their government benefits as a result of cannabis use that is legal under state law.

 

The Senate passed the bill by a vote of 86 to 5.

Read the full text of the veterans cannabis amendment as approved by the U.S. Senate:

 

SEC. 249. None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available to the Department of Veterans Affairs in this Act may be used in a manner that would—

 

(1) interfere with the ability of a veteran to participate in a medicinal marijuana program approved by a State;

 

(2) deny any services from the Department to a veteran who is participating in such a program; or

 

(3) limit or interfere with the ability of a health care provider of the Department to make appropriate recommendations, fill out forms, or take steps to comply with such a program.

I am a Vietnam Veteran. At this time in my life, I have been dealing with several health conditions that have become worse with time. The medications prescribed by VA have not helped and my health conditions continue to worsen. I have been through hell and back a few times. The cocktails that VA mixes for me have created more conditions on top of the others. I suffer from PTSD, Fibromyalgia, type 2 Diabetes, Insomnia, Hypertension and many more. All this caused by the combination of meds. I have come to feel like a Lab Rat, and VA continues to experiment with new drugs. All this does is to cause more harm than cures. We Vets feel like the Living Dead sometimes, if not at all times. Why do they (VA), keep doing this and just give us something that really works? I have personally tried Marijuana (cannabis) on and off and have experienced relief on so many levels. It is unbelievable. My PTSD calms down, (less flashbacks), I sleep better, We should really be taken in consideration and treated better for our own well being and for their reputation. We served our country. It is time overdue for our government to reciprocate the favor. All the fighting going on about the legalization of marijuana just causes more stress and conduces us to look for the black market. This is NOT the way to go. Why is the governments lying about cannabis still going on? Enough is enough.

First Marijuana Reform Bill Clears Congressional Committee

First Marijuana Reform Bill Clears Congressional Committee

 

This is the first standalone marijuana reform bill to pass and be given a vote in the legislature.

In a flurry of votes before the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee on Tuesday, house lawmakers voted to advance plans to increase research on the medical benefits of cannabis, reported the Military Times.

Legalization advocates have enjoyed past victories with the passage of amendments attached to larger legislation, today’s legislation is the first standalone bill that has ever passed.

“Hundreds of marijuana reform bills have been filed in Congress in recent years, but none have ever been given a vote, until now,” said Marijuana Moment’s Tom Angell.

The VA Medicinal Cannabis Research Act of 2018 will allow the agency to conduct long overdue research into the medicinal efficacy of cannabis. It will allow permit research into the therapeutic value of the plants compounds for the benefit of veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and chronic pain.

VA officials have said in recent years that federal rules regarding MMJ research have limited their ability to properly examine it. Lawmakers are hopeful this new measure will silence those concerns and provide definitive data on how cannabis can be helpful to suffering veterans.

Studies will examine “varying methods of cannabis delivery, including topical application, combustible and noncombustible inhalation, and ingestion.”

Filed by Veterans’ Affairs Committee GOP Chairman Phil Roe of Tennessee and Congressman Tim Walz of Minnesota, the top Democrat on the committee, along with 52 other cosponsors, the committee approved the bill by a voice vote after a brief discussion, reported the Marijuana Moment.

Several veterans’ advocacy organizations submitted testimony in support of the research bill.

“While this bill is certainly modest in its immediate impact, we believe that it is a necessary first step toward building bipartisan support for broader cannabis reform legislation in Congress,” the Veterans Cannabis Coalition said in a statement.

Legalization activists say that the research bill doesn’t go far enough. They want Congress to insist the VA allow its doctors to issue MMJ recommendations for veterans in states where it is legal.

“The VA has been instrumental in cutting edge research to improve the lives of those who serve our country,” Justin Strekal, political director for NORML, told Marijuana Moment.

“With nearly 1 in 4 veterans reporting that they consume cannabis to alleviate their ailments, it is absolutely imperative that the VA reform their policies to both conduct research and allow VA doctors to recommend therapeutic cannabis when they see fit.”

6/08/2018 El Comité de apropiaciones del Senado de Estados Unidos aprobó

El Comité de apropiaciones del Senado de Estados Unidos aprobó el jueves una enmienda a la SB 3024 que asegura que el acceso a la marihuana medicinal no puede ser negado a los veteranos por el Departamento de asuntos de veteranos, según un comunicado de prensa.
La enmienda fue introducida al Comité por el senador Steve (R-Montana), cuya oficina deja en claro que es un tema de los veteranos y los derechos de los Estados. La enmienda no proporciona directamente o financia la marihuana medicinal, pero asegura que los veteranos puedan discutir con sus doctores de va la opción de MMJ en los Estados donde es legal. La enmienda también deja claro que el acceso a otros servicios de va no puede ser negado a los veteranos que están participando en un programa de marihuana medicinal.
"los veteranos no deben ser discriminados cuando buscan atención en la va. Ellos merecen el acceso al tratamiento que mejor se adapte a sus necesidades médicas, al igual que lo recibirían en una clínica no-va. "— el senador Steve, en un comunicado bajo la política interna de va actual, los médicos del gobierno

 

Mi testimonio

 

JUAN ARMANDO ALICEA 2018

 

Saludos, mi nombre es Juan Armando Alicea, soy veterano, paciente de Cannabis Medicinal y director del Capítulo de Veteranos Pro Cannabis Medicinal.

 

La razón por la que comparto mi testimonio es porque los veteranos estamos buscando una opción para mejorar nuestra salud con el fin de tener mejor calidad de vida. Es un reclamo a nivel mundial. Cuantos están de acuerdo conmigo?

 

El 7 de octubre de 2003 el departamento de salud y servicios humanos de los Estados Unidos obtuvo una patente, #6630507, para el uso de la  marihuana como “Protector de los Nervios”.

 

Hay un factor bien importante y es que desde que entramos al ejército hemos sido ratas de laboratorio y esto está certificado y documentado por el pentágono de EU en un documental llamado, El Enemigo Oculto, Inside Psychiatry's Covert Agenda en donde se expone la operación oculta detrás de los suicidios militares. (http://www.cchr.org/documentaries/the-hidden-enemy.html)  Nos han inundado de opioides. Los opioides son medicamentos que alivian el dolor. En fin que nos han llenado de pastillas que lo que han hecho es empeorar nuestra salud por todos sus efectos secundarios.  Afectando los riñones, el hígado, el corazón, la vista, la presión, la diabetes, obesidad, entre otras condiciones que nos llevan a una vida sedada, que no somos funcionales. Nos han convertido en zombis, confinados a un espacio limitado física y emocionalmente.

 

El trastorno de estrés postraumático, PTSD es una de las condiciones que más nos limita y nos afecta emocionalmente. Somos sobrevivientes de trauma con PTSD y solemos tener problemas con las relaciones familiares cercanas o amistades. Los síntomas del PTSD pueden causar problemas de confianza, cercanía, comunicación y resolución de problemas. Estos problemas pueden afectar la forma en que nosotros actuamos con otros. A su vez, la forma en que un ser querido responde a nosotros nos  afecta. Se convierte en un círculo de maltrato  que a veces puede dañar las relaciones. Muchos de los veteranos que tenemos esta condición no nos percatamos del comportamiento hostil y de aislamiento. Es cuando la familia o personas allegadas se percatan y nos lo hacen saber que la situación empeora. Porque nos ponemos a la defensiva y entramos en negación. Hasta que encontramos una alternativa que solo nos lleva a volver a vivir. El cannabis medicinal. Hoy día hay muchas organizaciones y asociaciones que están abogando por el uso de cannabis medicinal basado en estudios científicos para tratar el PTSD entre otros diagnósticos que nos incapacitan para llevar una vida saludable. Organizaciones como la Legión Americana entre otras, médicos que están haciendo estudios continuos que arrojan resultados positivos y asombrosos para pacientes con cáncer, autismo, fibromialgia, síndrome Tourette, diabetes, glaucoma, Parkinson y Alzheimer entre muchas más.

 

El capítulo de Veteranos está trabajando para que él VA no obstaculice el acceso al cannabis medicinal a todo veterano con condiciones incapacitantes.

 

Hoy día hay 30 estados donde es legal el uso terapéutico que están ayudando y trabajando en favor de los veteranos.

 

Educación y más educación, es el factor primordial para nosotros los veteranos y nuestras familias. Es como único podremos maximizar nuestra calidad de vida. Ahora el gobierno no puede esconder la realidad. Estuvimos más de una década metidos en una mentira entre el gobierno, las farmacéuticas, y los medios que viven de nuestra salud. Incrementando un patrón de agresión y tendencias suicidas. Mientras más condiciones tengamos más dinero ganan.  Somos como el dinero en el banco, y el interés lo toman ellos.

 

Mi testimonio evidencia como el cannabis medicinal ayudó a controlar primero que todo mis nervios, mi ansiedad, mi depresión. Una vez aprendí sobre mis condiciones y la forma de utilizar el cannabis se estabilizaron mi diabetes, mi presión arterial, mi ansiedad que me llevaba a inestabilidad emocional y por ende a tener obesidad mórbida. Entonces recupere mi deseo de vivir. Yo tengo PTSD crónico, y de 300 libras de peso con supervisión médica y nutricional y Cannabis Medicinal, hoy estoy en 165 libras. Tengo mi presión y diabetes controlada.  Y he recuperado el control ante la sociedad y mi familia.

 

Los medicamentos me alteraban los nervios, me subían la presión, la azúcar. Todo indica que ese exceso de medicamentos han llevado a que me diagnostiquen cáncer en mi riñón. Me aislaba y no soportaba compartir socialmente. Era como estar tras un cristal observando a todos. Me sentía seguro estando solo y rabiando por todo. Ahora sé cómo identificar los síntomas y me medico con Cannabis bajo supervisión médica para ser funcional, me siento normal.           

 

Aún tengo PTSD pero él no me tiene a mí.

 

Juan Armando Alicea
