CannabisHabitation Colorado ~ The Veterans ~

A Message from Wayward Bill Chengelis, USMJParty Chairman,
President, US Marijuana Party of Colorado

To My Fellow Veterans & Others,

On July 22, 2010 a very historic event occurred both with Veteran Affairs and in the world of cannabis re-legalization. Robert A. Petzel, M.D. Under Secretary for Health at Veteran Affairs signed VHA Directive 2010-035, Medical Marijuana.

The directive recognizes medical cannabis in conjunction to pain management programs administered by VA.  However there is a broader interpretation in Background section of the directive; "VHA policy does not prohibit Veterans who use medical marijuana from participating in VHA substance abuse programs, pain control programs, or other clinical programs where the use of marijuana may be considered inconsistent with treatment goals."

So if you are being treated for glaucoma that falls under other clinical programs and the same as any other malady listed on the Colorado Medical Marijuana Registry. As it stands right now you can be referred for medical marijuana for the following conditions; Cancer, Glaucoma, HIV or AIDS positive OR a chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition that produces, for this patient, one or more of the following and which, in the physician’s professional opinion, may be alleviated by the medical use of marijuana,. Cachexia, Severe pain, Severe nausea, Seizures (including those characteristic of epilepsy), & Persistent muscle spasms (including those characteristic of multiple sclerosis).

On July 7 this year myself and other vets petitioned the state via SensibleColorado for the addition of PTSD to be added to the Medical Marijuana Registry.  We have yet to hear on that request and they have until November 7th to respond.

Colorado is cannabis friendly.  We are one of the medical marijuana states.  We have a major VA hospital here and eight sattelite clincs.   

For homeless vets we have the Samaritan House which participates in the HUD VASH program VASH offering a respite from the street and a chance of a Section 8 voucher for HUD housing. They also offer job services and life skills classes.

Denver also has The Road Home program to help with veterans and their families.

So I am asking all vets who use medical marijuana to move here and help us with turning Colorado into another British Columbia and Denver into Dencouver. We can control one area in Amerika and make it our own.

You know you want to...

CannabisHabitiation Colorado not just an idea but a vision for cannabis culture in Colorado...

Peace, Pot, Politics,

Wayward Bill Chengelis, USMJParty Chairman,
President, United States Marijuana Party of Colorado
