My sister is active duty, E9. She has had a few surgeries and still has pain from an accident in the navy. They gave her Marinol which is synthetic THC.



I am glad for her to get pain relief but I was shocked that the navy was already onboard with medical marijuana!

Marinol is not medical marijuana. It's a prescription medication produced in a laboratory to synthesize compounds found in cannabis plants. You might as well also be asking why is the Navy giving sailors crushed up bugs because some antibiotics contain compounds from insects; or why the Navy is feeding sailors crude oil because some food bases contain mineral oil. or why the heck has the navy been letting sailors openly handle cannabis because they used a hemp rope.
