Pets receive the same benefits from medical cannabis as humans. A compassionate use law for animals will allow veterinarians to provide guidance to people regarding the safe and effective use of cannabis for their pets.
Why is this important?
As a veterinarian, I have seen first-hand how medical cannabis benefits animals in ways conventional Western medicine cannot. Currently, veterinarians are being threatened with disciplinary action if they have "involvement in the treatment of an animal with marijuana or hemp." Let's allow veterinarians to do what they are trained to do- provide recommendations for the safe and effective treatment of pets.
