USCG – marijuana use prohibited
The US Coast Guard issued a message reminding Coast Guard personnel that use, possession, manufacture, or distribution of controlled substances, including marijuana, is a federal offense and a violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Further, Coast Guard military personnel are prohibited from knowingly visiting, entering, remaining in, or patronizing or otherwise conducting any kind of business with any establishment whose primary and prominent purpose is the growth, manufacture, sale or distribution of marijuana or Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) products in any form for either medical or recreational purposes that violate federal law.
