Rated For Cannabis Dependence; Va Admits It Helps

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Dear fellow vets,

i was recently increased from 50% to 100% schedular for these disabilities:

ptsd

depression

cannabis dependence.

the va stated that the cannabis likely controlled my ptsd and depression.

this is a fact i'm sharing about my experience in the claims process. i am a credible witness; i'm disabled vet, have mba, law degree, college professor, science writer, corporate counsel and avid researcher on all topics affecting vets. especially those of us who gave our lives, the living here and now as well as the living in everlasting life.

blessings be.

This is some good information. I have the same disabilities, but from Social Security effective date 2008. I am already rated 100% IU on the VA side. Again good for us. It really helps me also.

I recently got a bill from the VA saying I was being treated for "drug abuse" when I am being treated for chronic pain. It seems the VA considers treatment with opiates and drug abuse as the same thing. So now the VA has treated me with opiates for over ten years and they say it was all a mistake. However, they have no other plan for treating my chronic pain.
