HOOSIER WAR VETS WANT EQUAL RIGHTS ON MEDICAL CANNABIS

I’m a disabled Hoosier Vietnam war vet. I served 8 years active duty Army and 15 months in a combat unit in Vietnam. I suffer from chronic pain from a condition connected to my military service. Two fellow soldiers with whom I served in Vietnam also  ………………………………………….

Thank you for your service?

The “thank you for your service” in New Harmony, Griffin and Posey County Indiana is about 50 years late for Vietnam vets.

The past couple of weeks, I have had at least half dozen folks say to me, thank you for your service, in regard to me having been in the Vietnam war.  I always try to be polite, when this happens and assume that people mean well.

But in point of actual fact, this irks me, because ………..

LEGAL WEED — RADIO FREE NEW HARMONY

Thirty states now have legal medical marijuana. Here’s a list of the legal marijuana states.

Ron Nesler New Harmony Indiana

I know people in some of those legal marijuana states. Several of whom I served with during my eight years of US Army service, which incidentally included 15 months in a combat unit in the Vietnam war.

I have chronic pain, from conditions directly connected to my military service. The conditions I have are common among ex Army vets and some are specific to Vietnam war vets. 

These conditions are acknowledged to be connected to military service by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Some of the ex soldiers I know, who live in legal marijuana states, have the same conditions and the same chronic pain I have. Because, they live in one of the 30 legal marijuana states, they are prescribed marijuana and marijuana extracts for pain.

Everyone I know, who is prescribed marijuana for pain, reports that……..

medical marijuana for war vets

Ron Nesler New Harmony Indiana

During the Vietnam war, I was a Staff Sergeant E-6 in the US Army with a spotless record and accelerated promotions. I served 15 months in an artillery combat unit in Vietnam. I am rated 100% service connected disabled by the VA. I have three conditions, normally treated with medical marijuana in states other than Indiana.

But, because, I live in Indiana, I am forced to use other less effective medicines, some of which are highly addictive and/or cause liver damage. To the best of my understanding, the reason that I am denied medical marijuana in my home state, is because Mike Pence and other non veteran radicals fear that pot might have the side effect of causing me to be mildly euphoric. Or, that it might, as a worst case scenario, actually make me smile for a few minutes per day.

Mike Pence and all the other radical winger Chicken Hawks, who oppose medical marijuana for war vets, may kiss my rosy red enlisted ass.
