Watch: Canada's First Legal Cannabis Oil Shipment

Cannabis is an important, necessary medicine for many Canadians. The problem was that, until only recently, the only type you could get was flower - the smokable, vape-able leaves of the cannabis plant. It's not the right fit for everyone.

But there's great news for patients who'd prefer a different option. A recent Supreme Court decision legalized cannabis extract. The federal government gave the Ontario-based Peace Naturals Project the go-ahead to begin research and development, and this week, the first bottles of legal cannabis oil in Canada were shipped out to patients.

CTV News has the story on this milestone in Canadian cannabis history.

This Massachusetts Democrat - and 2020 presidential candidate - has a strong history of supporting veterans' access to medical marijuana. Over the years, Congressman Seth Moulton has acted as the primary sponsor on three cannabis-related bills—all of them focusing on improving veteran access to medical marijuana. As an Iraq War vet himself, Moulton has taken a strong stance in supporting the health and well-being of other veterans who continue to be barred from accessing medical marijuana - even in states where it's legal - because federal prohibition prevents Veterans Affairs from letting vets use medical cannabis.
