Battle Creek VA Director
Attention Veteran Patients & Doctors -
"The Office of the General Counsel has determined that no VA physician shall complete any forms for the Sate of Michigan for medical marijuana. However, for patients whose treatment plan from a non-VA physician includes use of medical marijuana, presence of marijuana in a urine drug screen is acceptable."
- Excerpt from a letter written by Suzanne Klinker, Battle Creek VA Medical Center Director (Click here to see the full letter)
According to the official diagnostic criteria, a person can be diagnosed as a â€substance abuserâ€ because of â€recurrent substance-related legal problemsâ€ â€” without any other symptoms.
