Happy 2020 Everyone!!! Sorry for the long delay in my post here, but I have been running kind of a Covert Campaign probing the workings of our local and state government policy makers. Let this be the year we all get 2020 vision of our Constitutional Rights. Anyhow,...
We visited with the Veterans View Radio Show the WJOB today in Hammond, Ind. to share some facts and knowledge regarding cannabis and our legislature here in Indiana.
About Our Organization
“Within the US one person every 20 minutes dies of either an accidental and or intentional overdose to prescription pain medication. Doing the math that’s 3 every hour, 72 a day and so forth. It has been report that our Veterans are overdosing at twice the rate of civilians…. in other words 2 of the 3 causalities within the above hour time frame are Veterans. This shouldn’t be, nor does it have too, especially within our great State of Indiana.”
To inform, educate, lobby, support and maintain legislations for the “legal” Medical use of Cannabis within the State of Indiana.
In addition, when we have fought and won for the legalization of Medical Cannabis, HVMC will work with our legislators to continuously review, revise and update legislation as may be necessary from time to time. i.e. recognizing residents from out of State that are Medical Cannabis patients …and so forth.
On a national level HVMC will fight to petition our Federal Government to reduce Cannabis from a Schedule I (fraudulently noted) to a Schedule II rating under the Substance Control Act of 1970 and to petition the Veterans Affairs in making policies to more freely prescribe and recommend Cannabis to our Veterans in lieu of the fatal prescription practices we have been so accustomed too.
