I’d do to be able to up and move to a state that has legalized weed, then you throw the word free around.. Hmmmm A girl can dream. Come on Texas lets start legalizing.
A free cannabis giveaway at a Colorado Springs hotel Saturday attracted about a thousand people looking for an alternative medication for their physical and mental pain.
Roger Martin, the executive director and co-founder of Operation Grow4Vets, which put on the event, said the group’s goal is to bring cannabis to veterans with service-related conditions as an alternative to pain medications.
“It isn’t going to hurt them as much as the prescription drugs,” he said.
Martin, an Army veteran, said he struggled with prescription drug use to help with what he called ”24-hour” pain and an inability to sleep.
“I just need something to take the pain away during the day,” he said.
Martin said he discovered edible marijuana as a way to reduce pain and help him sleep more, and he wants other veterans to have the same chance to address ailments.
