Hundreds of Vets Line Up for Free Pot in Show of Protest

Hundreds of veterans lined up in Denver to receive free cannabis products on Saturday as a sign of protest against a recent decision by Colorado’s Board of Health. Last month, the board voted against making PTSD a treatable condition for medical marijuana.

According to CBS Denver, the giveaway was set up by Grow4Vets founder ROGer Martin and High There! CEO Todd Mitchem.

“We teamed up to get medical marijuana into the hands of those they say need it most,” Mitchem told CBS4. “You see and hear their stories, you see the way they operate with cannabis versus prescription meds, and it’s a pretty clear picture. I think to deny it because we don’t have research, is really short-sighted.”

“We’re tired of waiting around for the government to do something to help veterans,” Martin continued. “We’re losing over 50 American heroes every single day as a result of prescription drug overdose or suicide, and the VA’s position up until this point has pretty much been let’s just keep them in a drug stupor.”
