The American Legion and AMVETs want the Indiana General Assembly to push forward with legislation decriminalizing medical marijuana. The groups join marijuana advocates and Rep. Jim Lucas (R-Seymour) in calling for action.

Veterans made a direct response to challenges from Gov. Eric Holcomb and the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council for their lack of support on the issue.
