For almost a year, Grow4Vets has been distributing free cannabis to military veterans in Colorado.
Following the recent Colorado Medical Board decision not to recognize Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as an eligible condition for medical marijuana treatment, organizations such as Operation Grow4Vets, Incredibles and High There! worked to host a rally for their Save a Million Vets Tour.
Todd Mitchem, the CEO of High There!, spoke about the ongoing tour:
“We started this summer in Portland. But with the negative ruling — in such a pot-friendly state — we decided to make a stop here before heading to Los Angeles, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico. Our goal is to make sure these everyday heroes get medication, which will actually help ease their stress and pain, while getting them off prescribed drugs, which in fact can lead them to higher stress levels and even suicide.”
The organizations are attempting to raise $250,000 in support of Grow4Vets efforts to give veterans free cannabis at their rallies around the country. Whaxy made a donation, and you can too. Use this link to donate to this important cause.
