An honorably discharged veteran who moved to Colorado for PTSD and chronic pain treatment cannot reunite with his children because of his medical-marijuana use. Child-protection workers and a Kansas judge have said Raymoud Schwab and his wife must give up cannabis before they can be reunited with five of their children. “They’re basically using my kids as a pawn to take away freedoms I fought for,” Schwab told The Denver Post. “It’s a horrible position to put me in.” As he and his wife were packing to leave Kansas for Colorado in April, Schwab’s mother-in-law took their children to a police station and reported them abandoned, and state officials will not allow them to be reunited. “I don’t think what we’re doing is illegal, immoral, or wrong,” said Schwab’s wife, Amelia.
