IF my state legalizes medical marijuana, would the VA still prescribe Adderall and Tramadol?

Just my opinion  because I'm not sure about what other VAMC do across the country?

BUT  if VA legalize marijuana  in my state Texas I DOUBT VERY SERIOUSLY THE VA WILL.

but if the majority   of the US Legalizes it  the VA May accept then?

I know marijuana helps relieve pain for just about everything...

now I'm not sure it sends something to the brain like in brain waves  to make the brain think there's no pain in the body   or disrupts your brain in a way you could not feel pain  either way if it don't cause the veteran to go bonkers or something that he he would harm himself or others  I see nothing wrong with it.

  but having the brain altered then it alters the mind too   so the verdict is still out??

The VA does not follow state law because it is part of the federal government.  Marijuana is still considered illegal by the federal government.  If you inform your VA provider that you are self medicating with Marijuana they will no longer prescribe certain medications.  This has happened to a buddy of mine in Vegas.

See, that's what I thought. I read some forums that there was a loophole. Like, if it was prescribed by a doctor. I heard the VA does do that. I had a doctor who had a three strikes your out policy. However, it's not legal in my state. I only want to take it to help me sleep.

WRONG! I am a MMJ card holder. They still have to provide medications you need UNLESS you state you are only using MMJ.

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
