A Message from Dr Brian Walker MLC

I was privileged to play an extremely small role in uniform as a reservist back in my youth. As an active GP in the years since, I have become painfully aware of the many hurdles that our veterans and their families face trying to access appropriate mental and physical support medication in their daily lives.

Our veterans have given so much to our country, and it's our duty to ensure they receive the care and support they deserve. Unfortunately, too many veterans are struggling with inadequate access to essential medications that could significantly improve their quality of life, that is why I am partnering with:

The No More Zombie Veterans campaign is dedicated to addressing this critical issue. We are advocating for better access to medicinal cannabis for veterans, a treatment option that has shown promise in alleviating symptoms of PTSD, chronic pain, and other service-related conditions.

Your support can make a real difference. By signing the petition, you are standing with our veterans and demanding the government take immediate action to ensure they have access to the medication they need.

Why This Matters:

  • Mental Health: Many veterans suffer from PTSD and other mental health conditions. Medicinal cannabis has been shown to help reduce anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
  • Physical Health: Chronic pain is a common issue among veterans. Medicinal cannabis can offer a safer alternative to opioids.
  • Quality of Life: Access to the right medication can dramatically improve the overall quality of life for veterans and their families.

How You Can Help:

  1. Sign the Petition: Your signature is a powerful statement - sign here.
  2. Spread the Word: Share the petition and campaign with your friends, family, and social networks.
  3. Leave Feedback: Share your story with Brian and he will fight for you in Parliament. 

Together, we can make a difference. Let's ensure our veterans receive the care they deserve and put an end to the struggles they face in accessing vital medications.
