As you know Dabbin Dad was started as a blog for me to have an outlet as a Veteran and Cannabis patient, describing and advocating for cannabis use to treat PTSD. I’m glad to be able to meet, learn and discuss other conditions patients are having and how cannabis is helping them. Honestly, this is the most satisfying part of all of this!
We would all agree that pricing for cannabis is high, by comparison to the prices in Oregon, Washington, California and Colorado. It is hard for most people to afford cannabis as a medication, even out on the West Coast. I have meet people from all walks of life: rich/poor, male/female, and different ethnicity. The one common goal is to have affordable access to cannabis as an alternative to Big Pharma. While thinking how we could help those in need, I came across this awesome group, Grow for Vets. I’m not affiliated with them, however I feel this is a great organization looking out for those that need access to cannabis, that normally could not.
Their mission, vision and purpose are clearly defined on the site, Grow for Vets.
OUR MISSION: The mission of Grow for Vets is to help save the more than 50 Veterans who die each day from suicide and prescription drug overdose. Grow for Vets provides Veteran heroes with safe alternative to deadly prescription drugs. We connect Veterans with the knowledge and resources necessary to obtain or grow their own cannabis for treatment of their medical conditions.
OUR VISION: To raise awareness by enlisting the public’s aid and support in ensuring that all injured and wounded Veterans receive the respect and dignity of life that they deserve.
OUR PURPOSE: To provide Veterans with unique products, programs and services designed to assist them in living with injuries sustained while protecting our freedom.
This organization, is out to help serve those that served our nation! They do take donations, if you feel the need to help. I know the patient you help is more than thankful for you and the organization. Please check out the video from Grow for Vets.
