Veterans Advocacy Groups Redefine the Term ‘Cannabis Influencer’

At the end of the day, what is influence, really?

By definition, it means to make someone consider a thought that they may not have considered otherwise.

Notice, there is no mention of coupon codes or sales or profits in that definition. So, perhaps our veteran advocates aren’t actually redefining the word influencer but reminding us of what it means to begin with.

The VA will Continue to Fail our Vets on Suicide Prevention, This Past Week Proved It

Yesterday was National PTSD Awareness Day. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder afflicts millions of our nation’s veterans on a scale ranging from mildly annoying to mentally debilitating and undoubtedly plays a role in too many of these suicides. June 27th is one day set aside to recognize this condition that affects not only our veterans, but so many Americans, and a day to “check in” on a friend or family member who may be dealing with PTSD. But our call to action today is to ask that you recognize that PTSD, depression, and substance abuse are very real everyday battles that our vets must face and that it’s always a good time for a buddy check.

Memorial Day is as good a day as any to rejoin the fight for a better future and reject endless war and all the ill it brings into our world. All we have are our choices.
