Medical Marijuana for Veterans
Happy Joe Moves Forward with Cannabis Education
Despite the challenges and negative stigma attached to cannabis use, Happy Joe fully supports the legal use of medical marijuana for veterans.
It's not about getting stoned but mental wellness for military veterans.
Medical marijuana for veterans isn't about a bunch of people getting high, lying around doing nothing. It's about combating the debilitating effects of PTSD and other mental issues our veterans encounter. It means veterans being able to get a good night’s sleep with no haunting nightmares. It also means using cannabis products for pain management – foregoing the potent narcotics that are regularly prescribed and often leading to opiate addiction.
Progress is being made with medical marijuana for veterans. Ask any of the thousands of veterans using cannabis for medicinal purposes about how it has helped them. Unfortunately it's not enough! We need more educational resources, training, research and easier access for veterans to obtain cannabis products.
24 states + DC have legalized medical marijuana
Advocating and Educating
Happy Joe advocates for the rights of veterans to choose alternative medicines such as cannabis to improve their mental well being. We also invest our efforts into education for medical marijuana through workshops and online learning. Our objective is showing our military veterans the options available to them and allowing them to reach their own conclusions about cannabis treatment options.
Objectives for our medical marijuana education and programs:
- Reducing the costs of medical marijuana cards to veterans.
- Negotiating discounts for veterans at dispensaries.
- Researching the latest studies on the use of medical cannabis.
- Conducting workshops on growing, cultivation, and cooking.
- Teaching how various strains work for different needs.
- Advocating for the VA to be able to prescribe cannabis to patients.
- Educating on federal and state laws regarding cannabis use.
- Promoting safe use of cannabis products.
Professionalism is essential to Happy Joe
It's important for us to state that our medical marijuana programs for military veterans is conducted with respect and professionalism for the industry. We are not interested in promoting a lifestyle that has often been associated with cannabis use. We choose to focus on the medicinal value that marijuana can provide and doing this in a manner that reflects the upmost quality.
