The American Legion recently conducted a poll revealing one in five US Service Veterans use medical marijuana to provide relief for symptoms related to medical or physical conditions. Other notable data points include 81% of respondents who support federally regulated treatment, 60% of respondents did not live in states where medical marijuana is available, and that support for legal medical cannabis was not tied to political affiliations (across, the board, between 70-88% supported federally legalized medical cannabis regardless of political views). Of the respondents aged 18-30 years old, 100% supported federally legalized medical cannabis.
