Be Heard on Cannabis Tomorrow at the VFW

Tuesday, January 28, 2020


Quick reminder that tomorrow at 6pm, House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler and Rep. Tabke are hosting a town hall to hear from Minnesotans about legalizing cannabis for adult use at the Shakopee VFW. 


Minnesota’s veterans deserve access to the treatment they need to treat PTSD and chronic pain without turning to opioids or other serious drugs.

As many as seven in ten people suffering from PTSD are getting relief from cannabis. But most vets can’t access or afford the prohibitive costs of medical cannabis, and none can legally receive it from the VA. We are making too many veterans criminals for using cannabis to treat their symptoms from their service.

We hope you'll join us tomorrow to ask questions or share your perspective. Legalizing cannabis can offer broad benefits for Minnesota and if we legalize it we need to make sure we do it right. 

We hope to see you tomorrow,

Brad Tabke, State Representative

Adeline Miller, Legislative Assistant
