That's the text message that a Fairfax police officer received last week when a drug dealer accidentally solicited cannabis to the officer instead of his buyer. The message was handed over to narcotics detectives who then set up a meeting with the man. He was later arrested with over a pound of cannabis and charged with possession with intent to distribute.

The fight to legalize cannabis nationwide should begin by helping veterans get access to medical marijuana, according to Massachusetts Representative - and 2020 presidential candidate - Seth Moulton (D). Right now, vets can't use medical marijuana without the risk of losing their Veteran's Affairs benefits, even if they live in a state that has legalized medicinal cannabis. In fact, so much as mentioning cannabis use to their doctor is enough for a vet to get their benefits stripped.
