Comments

In a letter to President Biden, Representative Beatty says, "In fact, when used correctly and responsibly, cannabis has many proven health benefits, including the treatment of PTSD and serving as an opioid alternative to pain management. As our nation continues to grapple with an increased rate of PTSD amongst our veteran communities and a growing opioid crisis that has caused thousands of fatal overdoses amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we should be encouraging these therapies, not finding ways to further stigmatize and disenfranchise them." 3/23/21

"We have an obligation to allow individuals suffering from ailments to have access to treatment within a legal framework that respects states' rights," Beatty told 10TV. "It is not only the responsible thing to do -it is the compassionate thing to do."
