Grow for Vets USA Provides Medical Cannabis to our Veterans

Written by Cara Wietstock

Since their founding in 2014 Grow for Vets has supplied over 40,000 veterans with around $101,000 worth of free medical cannabis.

Many veterans come home from serving us having suffered physical or mental illness, injury, or wounds. To get more statistic base, more than 49,000 current US veterans currently suffer from physical injuries. On top of that jaw-dropping number are the hundreds of thousands of service members who are currently dealing with debilitating ailments like depression, combat-related stress, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and/or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

When our veterans return from active duty and visit the doctor, many of them are prescribed a long list of pharmaceuticals to cover up any issues. At the moment, more than 50 veterans die daily from suicide and prescription overdose. This simply isn’t the way we should treat our country’s heroes. Grow for Vets knows that cannabis can safely treat many of the wounds of our veterans and, like most of us, believe that these people deserve safe access to this medicine.

 

Not only does Grow for Vets provide free medical cannabis to any veteran in a legal cannabis state, they also hope to educate our veterans on how they can empower themselves and efficiently grow their own cannabis. This nonprofit organization is currently operating in Arizona, California, Colorado, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, and Oregon.
