Head of military school fired for using marijuana extract to treat cancer | Army Times

A Vietnam War veteran who spent 22 years in the Air Force was fired last month from his job as the dean of academics at the Air Force Special Operations School for using a non-psychoactive cannabis extract to treat his prostate cancer.

Retired Capt. Henry Cobbs, 77, was dismissed from the Hurlburt Field, Florida, school, where he had served as dean since 2009, for “use of a cannabidiol (CBD), a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance,” the Herald Tribunereported.

Cobbs appealed, but the commander of the 492nd Special Operations Training Group, Col. Robert A. Masaitis, upheld the decision and informed Cobbs the termination would be permanently reflected in the retired airman’s file.
