I come from a family of countless military veterans.
- My maternal Grandpa was a paratrooper in World War II while my paternal Grandpa was a medic while I was in the Korean War a few years later.
My uncle Greg was in the Army for a number of years however was just one year too late to be put into active duty for the end of the Vietnam War. Then my cousin joined while I was in the War on Terror plus did more than one tours of duty in Afganistan. He accidentally stepped on an improvised explosive component (IED) plus it almost took one of his legs, although now he can barely walk despite keeping them both. He’s in a lot of pain each day, plus that’s after countless surgeries to regular the complications throughout his body from his war injuries. Even if my cousin hadn’t been damaged so gruesomely, he’d still be plagued with post traumatic stress disorder appreciate his comrades who managed to return home separate from any physical injuries. I’m a big proponent for cannabis use across the board, so you can only imagine how supportive I am of veterans using cannabis for their numerous physical plus mental health complications. I’m harshly glad to see that most of the cannabis dispensaries in my state offer a veteran’s discount for any active or former active duty members of the armed forces. Some dispensaries have a veteran’s discount that is as high as 30% on all orders. However, they rarely let you stack discounts. So if there is a 40% off sale on cannabis flower products, you can’t combine that 40% with your 30% off veteran’s discount. You option the highest discount plus that’s the one the budtender applies to your order at checkout.
