So i wanted to give a brief intro of who i am and what i will be waiting for this blog.
First I’m an Army Vet based in the US. All the politics aside, I really want to help vets around the world better understand cannabis and the cannabis culture. I found in my years of traveling the world that there is still a lot of unknown about cannabis and a lot of people still feel uncomfortable about it. So my goal is to help clear some of that up. I’m looking forward to writing not only about some of the veterans initiatives that are starting to show up but also new products and some indoor growing advice.
I have been dealing with a lot of things from my time in the military and after talking to a lot of my veteran friends they all recommended I try some cannabis. I had tried a few different prescriptions in the past and didn’t really like the effects it had on me but man when i tried that first edible i was amazed. Not just by the high but how i felt the next day and how relaxed i had become. I began to realize that using cannabis might be a path forward for me, it might actually help. This is what led me to start reading about other similar cases and outcomes. Now you can see whole organizations starting to move to the forefront, these groups and organizations are working to ensure veterans have good access to cannabis if they choose to use it. There’s even a few that are working to deliver indoor grow equipment to veterans in need. It has truly been amazing to watch this start to unfold and see the progress these groups are making.
This may all sound great for vets but what does it mean for everyone else?
Well simply it’s showing that cannabis has a place in this world, and we can use it to at least help some of the people that could use it. In the USA this goes a step further and stokes the political fires a bit to show that prohibition wasn’t necessarily the right choice and moving the needle a little more in favor of federal legalization and maybe at the very least giving a few people a better quality of life. At the end of the day we may not be able to fix everything but at least with this we can help.
I dropped in a few links to some of the organizations that have helped veterans in the USA.
