Legion resolutions on medical marijuana

The American Legion has two medical marijuana-related resolutions passed by the National Executive Committee:

Resolution 11 was passed during the Legion's 2016 National Convention in Cincinnati. The resolution calls on the Drug Enforcement Agency to license privately funded medical marijuana production operations in the United States to enable safe and efficient cannabis drug development research; and urging Congress to remove marijuana from Schedule I and reclassify it in a category that, at a minimum, will recognize cannabis as a drug with potential medical value.

Resolution 28 was passed during the 2017 National Convention in Reno, Nev. The resolution calls for permitting VA medical providers to openly discuss with veterans the use of marijuana for medical purposes, as well as recommend it where legal.
