National Veterans Day!

November 11, 2017

Calling all Veterans for Cannabis Reform! On Thursday Nov. 11 2017 we will be mobilizing at VA Medical Centers across Georgia and the country to peacefully demonstrate that over 22 Veterans commit suicide daily AND that pharmaceutical dependency and lack of proper healthcare may be at fault! Why does the VA need to be reminded of Veteran’s? Because it seems we have been forgotten! We need our Federal Government to recognize the positive medicinal effects medical cannabis is having for so many in states that have legal access! In states that have legal access there has been a 25% reduction in opiate overdoses and related emergency room visits! This is not reflected in our Veteran communities and it would absolutely help an overwhelming number of veterans to cope with the war that IS coming home and dealing with life after service! We also recognize those that aren’t veterans who suffer from silent illnesses such as PTSD and depression and as before when we served we will again stand on the front lines for YOU! So please come and support this cause and help those that served for all of us! #22TooMany #WakeUpWorld #LifeOverLaw #EndTheWarOnPeople #EndTheDrugWar #OnePlant United!
