Veterans To Rally For Medical Marijuana Access In D.C. In Front Of White House

operation grow for vetsI received the following press release today, which I think is very cool. Wish I could attend:

What: This Veteran’s Day, veterans and activists will gather to walk from the Veteran’s Affairs Headquarters down Pennsylvania Avenue to the gates of the White House where they will be disposing of thousands empty prescription pill bottles collected from their brothers and sisters across the country in memory of those whose sacrifices did not end on the battlefield. With the current veteran suicide rate at 22 per day, it is time for the VA to recognize alternate forms of war trauma treatment for our veterans.

Join us tomorrow at the White House gates  to witness firsthand the cause that veterans, their families, and advocate associations alike are fighting for. There will be an opportunity to speak with veterans involved in the movement as well as Garyn Angel, who is a key part in the organization of this event.

Who: World-renowned cannabis expert and veterans’ rights advocate Garyn Angel will lead thousands of United States veterans and several national veterans’ organizations during the march.

Where: The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

When: Wednesday, November 11th

Walk to begin at 12 pm

    First of all…My family and I wish to send out heartfelt thanks to anyone who has taken up arms to protect, defend, and support America. I may not agree with the reasons that our troops are sent places (politicians suck donkey schlong), but I will always support the sons and daughters that go to war for me and mine…second… it is Veterans day…if you know a Vet be it young or old…reach out…your kind words and expressions of thanks can be the difference between life and death for those that feel like ending their own existence. (Kind words cost nothing and can have great impact)…PTSD is no joke. My father in law served in “Nam” and has been prescribed a plethora of meds for years…night sweats, panic attacks, feelings of depression, and guilt because he made it when so many others did not(survivors remorse) all of which can be helped by cannabis…but guess what? He uses cannabis he can’t get the treatment or help he needs. It is atrocious that so many die in war and then many more die after the conflict due to inane outdated laws that hurt more than they help…Save Our Vets…Feel The Bern!!!

      In the ’90s I worked for an organization and asked my boss if I could have Veteran’s day off. (2 years in a row). She replied, ”and it’s been how many years since you were in the service?” ”NO.” She survived cervical? cancer. I certainly hope she’s pushing up daisies.

    That holds weight, and a strong message it is! They want what many people wants-medical marijuana. Sounds simple right. Give our boys and girls in camp the life they deserve after coming home from horrific wars! The pill bottle dispersement is powerful imagery, it screams “Give Us Liberty”, at least give them weed and lots of it because they fuckin deserve it!!!

    And I’m ~170 miles from D.C. and knew nothing about this. WTF? :( Obama should have rescheduled Cannabis and Hemp by now. Seems only the importation of illegals matter to the Supreme Commander. Thanks for posting this notice though. And thank all those who provided free meals and discounts for Vets yesterday. And I hope the Homeless Vets could access these gifts.
