They fought for freedom and then get left high and dry
Veterans with PTSD are ready to take action and have David Lutz to represent their case.
In May 2017 the Veteran’s Affair Canada reduced the daily amount of medical cannabis available to the users by 70%. Originally suffers had access to 10 grams, this was then reduced to just 3 grams.
The veterans who are authorized to use more that 3 grams to treat PTSD, chronic pain and other service related injuries soon found that the new amount did not help control the pain and many tried to take their own lives rather than returning to uncontrollable symptoms or prescription medication.
One year later and funding for nearly half of the veterans has been returned to up to 10 grams. Is this too little too late for many?
Veterans for Healing organization are backing the lawsuit to try and ensure that nothing similar happens to veterans in the future.
