Asking for your support on the VA 2019 Medicinal Hemp Research Act
My name is _______, and I am from _______. I’m writing because I’d like (Senator or Representative) _______ to support the VA 2019 Medicinal Hemp Research Act to bring federally legal CBD derived from industrial hemp forward as an alternative to VA-prescribed opioids.
As you know, there is a crisis in the Veteran community with more than twenty Veterans a day taking their own lives.
We believe that many of the twenty a day, and an even greater number of premature deaths that are being categorized as “by natural causes” are related to the over prescription in opiate and psychotropic drugs in our county.
Please make time on your schedule to meet with some Veterans who have found a healthier avenue to contend with the issues of chronic pain and PTSD, (and numerous other ailments) by using nonintoxicating, non-addictive CBD derived from industrial hemp that was federally legalized on 18 Dec, 2018 with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. With CBD derived from this federally legal cannabis that is not marijuana, there truly exists no roadblock for the Veterans Administration to conduct a clinical study immediately.
I’m going to keep close attention to whether or not (Senator or Representative) _______ supports the Medicinal Hemp Research Act.
