Jeff Staker is a former marine and firefighter at Grissom Air Reserve Base, where he previously worked as a law enforcement officer. Has started a lobbying group called Hoosier Veterans for Medical Cannabis. His hope is to rally local military supporters to pressure their representatives for access to medicinal cannabis.
Last month they were granted non profit status by the Indiana Office of the Secretary of State and he hopes to use the group as a vehicle to lobby state law makers to allow doctors to prescribe medical cannabis. It also helped gain support from at least one member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in order to build a coalition of veterans willing to address the issue of medicinal cannabis legalization.
