The group Utah Veterans for Medical Cannabis has come together in hopes making medical marijuana legal in Utah. A June 2015 article in the American Medical Association Journal of Ethics attempted to clarify the VA's policy on using cannabis in conjunction with opioids to treat long-term pain. Currently, 23 states and the District of Columbia have enacted laws legalizing marijuana in some form. Follow the Utah Veterans for Medical Cannabis on Facebook.
