Early in 2017, twenty-two Veterans from Missouri attended NORML's Project 4-22 Summit at the 1st Annual Institute of Cannabis Research Conference in Pueblo, Colorado to learn about the benefits of medical cannabis.

Come and hear from local Veterans that participated in NORML's Project 4-22 and how medical cannabis can make a difference in many veteran's lives.

Why medical cannabis and Veterans?? A National mental health crises exists among veterans. On average, 22 Veterans commit suicide every day according to a 2012 report from the Veterans Health Administration. PTSD is the leading cause of suicidal tendencies and cannabinoid therapy is emerging as an effective medical counter measure to alleviate the symptoms of this post-combat mental illness as well as other issues such as chronic pain.
