Event also to highlight federal legislation aimed at improving access to MMJ

More than 20 veterans commit suicide each day and more are becoming addicted to opiates in an attempt to stabilize their lives after combat.

Can cannabis help? And if so, how can we make it easier for veterans to access it?

At an event scheduled for October 5 in Las Vegas, veterans and the community will have the opportunity to hear from Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer, whose state has legalized both medical and recreational marijuana, and Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada who have worked together to bring forward legislation to give qualified veterans fair and equal access to state-legal medical marijuana programs in support of Veterans.
