People who are approved to buy and use medical marijuana in Ohio say the tightly regulated program has resulted in costly products that are not easy to get.

"They can get off many of their expensive meds and that is very appealing to seniors."

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is under pressure to ease restrictions on veterans’ access to medical marijuana to help treat pain and other ailments.

It took years for advocates to get medical marijuana legalized in Missouri, but when it’s finally available in 2020, they may face an even tougher challenge: paying for it.

"There's a lot of advocacy out there [among veterans], and I think if we collectively get together, we can all speak with one voice, and I'm using my film as that channel."

Advocates for marijuana reform were in Austin, Texas this past weekend for the second annual Texas Marijuana Policy Conference.
