Veterans groups from around the state and across the country are rallying for a march at the Sandra Day O’Connor Federal Courthouse Tuesday Oct. 27 at 8am. The internationally renowned organizations, Weed for Warriors and Grow4Vets, along with numerous other veterans groups are calling on Arizona vets to join the march for improving veterans’ conditions, especially for VA approval of marijuana as part of recommended treatment for PTSD.
The march will be part of the veteran focus at the upcoming Southwest Cannabis Conference and Expo (SWCC Expo) at the Phoenix Convention Center, Oct. 26-28. Area veterans will march to the convention center to join the convention, which will feature celebrated PTSD researcher Dr. Sue Sisley and several noted cannabis researchers discussing veteran and patient issues, in addition to being the first regional cannabis business conference including all seven southwestern states.
Film crews and reporters are already involved in documenting this groundbreaking event.
