Cannabis & Alternative Therapies

IAVA'S BIG 6

IAVA’s members have identified 6 priority issues that matter most to them.

Cannabis & Other Alternative Therapies

IAVA believes that veterans should have the same access to care as their civilian counterparts.

Cannabis

Veterans have passionately stated that medical cannabis has helped them tackle some of the most pressing war injuries veterans face, such as PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury. As cannabis quickly becomes more culturally acceptable, IAVA believes that the VA should be allowed to study cannabis as an alternative therapy to determine its efficacy for the unique needs of veteran health care.
