VA Malpractice with Veterans and President Obama

OKAY President Obama, the ball is in your court. YOU KNOW marijuana is not only benign but a good safe medicine. Issue the shovels and clean the stables!

(MOLALLA, Ore.) - The TV and newspaper reports of total dysfunction and even dangerous/lethal care of our War Veterans has come to our new president’s attention.

When he spoke of it in his recent speech to the Congress it brought a standing ovation and thunderous shouts and applause.

This was totally ironic. The Congress IS responsible for the miserable performance of the Armed Services Hospitals and the VA Hospitals.

This has ended up with over medicated, zombified and/or addicted Veterans and a Veteran suicide rate which is destroying many of our “best and brightest”.

Servicemen and women, as a group, are literally our best and brightest Americans and few will disagree that Armed Service and VA care is more dangerous than frontline combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The day after President Obama’s inauguration, the DEA raided and arrested patients in legal cannabis/marijuana dispensaries in California.


Was this flexing the muscles of the DEA/Justice Department to show its power and independence of them? If so it is another slap in the face to our War Veterans, many of whom are beneficiaries of legal medical marijuana which works much better than the zombifying and addicting drugs of the Army/Navy medicos and the VA alleged caregivers.

President Obama, along with about a dozen more presidents smoked marijuana, none of which showed any mental malfunction (maybe I should alter my perspective).

The president’s accolade about Veterans care during his congressional speech should be the start of barn cleaning, especially at VA Hospitals.

According to newspaper stories more than 400 thousand Veterans have been denied medical care. The PTSD Veteran victims must represent most of them and account for most of the alcoholism, drug addiction, suicides and suicide attempts.

OKAY President Obama, the ball is in your court. YOU KNOW marijuana is not only benign but a good safe medicine. Issue the shovels and clean the stables!

Hoorah for my fellow PTSD Vets!
