American Legion National Commander Denise Rohan

“For more than a year, The American Legion has called on the federal government to support and enable scientific research to clinically confirm the medicinal value of cannabis. The National Academy of Medicine recently reviewed 10,000 scientific abstracts on the therapeutic value of cannabis and reached nearly 100 conclusions in a report issued earlier this year. As a two million member strong veteran service organization, our primary interest and advocacy is grounded in the well being and improved health of our veterans, and specifically our service disabled veterans…” (Letter to Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin)
