I'm posting up my first Survey Monkey survey to ask just a couple of important questions regarding use of marijuana for military members and veterans.
I've been looking to see if anyone has been asking this question; I don't see much out there, and I think it's now time to put it out there. The issue has basically three components:
1. Active duty military- should they be able to use it, if they are in a location that permits it? (Think Ft Carson in Colorado as an example)
2. Should guardsmen, who are not on duty full-time but subject to duty recall, be able to use it if their state permits it.
3. Should medical marijuana be a treatment option for veterans in the VA system?
I know this is going to be an issue; as I'm in CO, and several units are being spun up to support the Ebola mission, this is likely to make an appearance. I'm not aware of any prosecutions for it, or any unit discussion on it. Yes, I do know that in the FEDERAL legal system it's illegal to use, but Sammy Soldier who also attends Colorado University, or Cindy Clerk who has a doctor prescribing it for nausea may test 'hot' prior to deployment.
So, just to ask the question: (please click the link- couldn't get the survey to embed)
