And best of all, many of the cannabis dispensaries in our state offer veterans discounts, with some going as far as giving out discounts to those on food stamps as well
My sister is a veteran and did three tours of duty overseas before retiring from the armed forces altogether. She is proud of her work in the Army, but she has a lot of painful memories that make it hard to focus in her daily life. At times she has struggled to meet quotas at work because her mind will wander if it starts to remember a traumatizing experience. The VA has responded to her problems in a number of different ways. They paid for therapy that lasted two years, but then they quit paying the co-pays that weren’t covered by insurance. On top of that, they tried to prescribe her a number of medications that all failed to work in the long run. She had some weird reactions to a few of the medications while others didn’t work whatsoever. Eventually she decided to try medical marijuana as our state had passed a law. She was immediately surprised at how effective cannabis flower products were for her PTSD symptoms the first time she tried them. It was an immediate game changer in her battle with her mental health problems. And best of all, many of the cannabis dispensaries in our state offer veterans discounts, with some going as far as giving out discounts to those on food stamps as well. With her veterans ID card my sister can get 30% off every order she makes at many of her favorite medical cannabis dispensaries. Sometimes you can stack this discount with sales and other coupons. It’s extremely helpful for those who need this medicine the most.
