OREGON: National nonprofit organization ‘Grow for Vets’ is raising money and support for veterans suffering from PTSD and other medical conditions, as well as handing out free marijuana.
The organization hosted a free cannabis giveaway and rally at Refuge PDX in Portland on Saturday. Both Veterans and non-veterans received gift bags containing information about Grow for Vets and free pot-related products.
The rally aimed to raise veterans’ awareness about alternative treatment options, and to highlight the frequency of prescription drug abuse and suicide.
Grow for Vets held their first Oregon cannabis giveaway in Albany on July 1st, when marijuana legalization officially took effect. Hundreds of Veterans and supporters attended and received gift bags worth more than $300 each.
