US (LA): Veterans ask for better access to medical cannabis

Medical cannabis is legal in Louisiana, but some veterans gathered at the Louisana State Capitol Monday asking for a better system. “It’s been a lifesaver for me,” said Joshua Moffett, a former army ranger specialist and owner of Accurate Empathy Counseling.

Tony Landry, the founder of Louisiana Veterans for Medical Cannabis, wants to see the bills get passed and make medical cannabis more accessible to everyone. “There is some limited expansion to the medical cannabis program, we are happy to see, we are going to hope to add to those bills and amend them to help veterans even more,” Landry said.

Moffett said the other states are far ahead of Louisiana in medical cannabis. “We are definitely behind in the times,” Moffett said. ”I mean, we need to do more for ourselves, more for our veterans, more for people that are suffering from addiction, and more that are suffering from mental health in general.”
