Hello,  

My understanding is that the VFW as a whole does not have a 100% this way or that way feeling about Veterans getting Marijuana to treat qualifying conditions.

They are however, being asked to act in some way and show what support that they can as a whole.

Some VFW members are finding ways that their post can be more involved and support fellow veterans that may benefit from Marijuana.
