Supporting Our Veterans on 11/10/17

The War on Marijuana is ending, and Just this year in 2017  It was approved by the feds to make Marijuana accessible to veterans!

Veterans are citizens who have served or is serving in the armed forces. Those veterans that have had direct exposure to acts of military conflict may also be referred to as war veterans.Military veterans often receive special treatment in their respective countries due to the sacrifices they made during wars.

 Some veterans suffer from illnesses directly related to their military service such as post traumatic stress disorder(PTSD). War veterans are generally treated with great respect and honor for their contribution to the world and country by their own nationals, It is great deal that our country salutes those heroes who have served to fight for our freedoms and rights. It is also a great privilege for our country and officials to allow the  reformation of cannabis for medicinal and recreational use. The admendment makes it able for veterans to participate in  legal state medical cannabis programs without the fear of loosing their military benefits or services, and also grants permission for medical cannabis recommendations in compliance with state medical cannabis laws from the Department of Veterans Affairs health care providers!

ROOT ROOT FOR GRAND OL’ USA! Making another step in Making our country Great Again.  Veterans Day is November 11th, Saturday.

The cannabis industry is supporting our veterans giving work and relief to  many. Here are a few sites from great organizations out there taking the lead in the cannabis movement making it all possible. Thank you! 

Veterans For Medical Cannabis Access or VMCA, advocates for veterans’ rights to access medical cannabis for therapeutic purposes. VMCA encourages all legislative bodies to endorse veterans’ rights to use medical cannabis therapeutically and responsibly, and is working to end all prohibitions associated with such use.  

With Your Help We Can Save A Veteran’s Life

Weed for Warriors Project was started in the San Francisco Bay Area by an OEF United States Marine Corps Veteran who found relief from his service connected disabilities through medical marijuanaand the fellowship of other like minded Veterans within the cannabis community. With the help of organizations like SANTA CRUZ VETERANS ALLIANCE, Weed for Warriors Project is able to provide Veterans with medical marijuana information, a safe place to fellowship with other Veterans and safe access to free medicine with proof of service/ current medical recommendation
