Trump’s Ban On CBD For the Military Echoes Drug War, Anti-Hemp Oil Hysteria

The MarijuanaMoment.net website reported the new policy calling it “little-noticed,” which is an accurate but ironic description of what should have been widely announced, if it was meant to inform members of both the active duty and reserve military about something so important.
