No Medical Marijuana At Missouri Veterans Homes

Residents and employees of the seven veterans homes in Missouri will not be allowed to use medical marijuana.

Missouri Veterans Commission Executive Director Grace Link said today [Monday] the state must prohibit the use of medical marijuana in order to comply with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, who consider pot an illegal drug.

Federal funds pay a portion of the operation costs of the homes, and officials don’t want to jeopardize that revenue.

The announcement could impact around 1.350 residents.
