Are you a VETERAN in Washington State? Please take notice and contact your legislators ASAP!

From Gina Garcia RE House Bill 2149:
Letter to her legislators:

Dear Mr Dansel, Mrs Short and Mr Kretz,

One thing that I feel has been overlooked in the Substitute bill on medical cannabis bill 2149 (sponsored by Rep. Cody) is that Section 5 talks about Physicians approving for more plants or ounces. I am a veteran and like many of us, the VA is a federal Institution. THEY WILL NOT approve us of using cannabis, So while we are treated at the VA, we take our medical records to an outside clinic that goes over our records to make sure we qualify as patients. THEY WILL NOT Approve us if we don’t Qualify.

So can you tell me where we are suppose to get our authorizations if this bill passes? It will Hurt so many veterans. Who can authorize the vets if we get our primary care at the VA?

Please read Section 5 and see why Veterans wont qualify for Medical Cannabis UNLESS you are saying the VA will be able authorize us now?
