Fuels VAHA’s Educational Outreach and Advocacy Programs
The purpose of our research efforts is to inform our Actions and Empower our Alliance. Our research provides factual, quantifiable data to present among our audiences through VAHA’s Unique Perspective. Our continued efforts to educate and advocate on the efficacy of Medical Cannabis are fueled through our consistent and persistent research efforts.
Reduces Current Barriers to Research
According to the US Federal Government, even today, Cannabis does not and has not been proven to have any medical benefits. This is clearly reflected in its decision to have Cannabis remain on the list of Schedule 1 Narcotics, along with Heroin and Methamphetamines. Not only does this create access obstacles for patients in need, but its classification continues to severely hinder research efforts within the United States and abroad.
For those who have served and have lost a part of themselves in that service, We seek peace and longevity with, and for those We love.” For those who choose, or have no choice, “VAHA understands, respects, and honors the requests for discretion.”
Provides Credible, Up-to-Date Information to Our Clients and Communities
Providing consistent, unbiased information will allow our Communities to make informed decisions about the efficacy, uses, and routes of administration of Medical Cannabis. VAHA’s research efforts allow our communities to increase control over their own health and enhance pathways for recovery and balance.
Effective medicine that yields tangible results and more control to the patient transcends geography and cultural barriers. It is the single principle that drives the Veteran’s Alliance for Holistic Alternatives in its mission. We do not have all of the answers and seek the expertise of many others who share the same vision.
