The conference is organized and hosted by Missouri based Project 4-22 Foundation, a volunteer community initiative committed to mitigating the American military veteran suicide epidemic by seeking safer treatment options while raising awareness of the staggering death rates reported by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.

Project 4-22 organized this informative and educational forum with broad appeal to various constituents — from voters to healthcare providers — in advance of Missouri’s medical cannabis vote because every day at least 22 veterans commit suicide. With diagnoses ranging from post-traumatic stress to traumatic brain injury, veterans face limited and inadequate treatment that includes addictive opiates.  In November Missouri voters will make history, passing judgement on three separate medical cannabis initiatives on the ballot.  Project 4-22 advocates the medical benefits of cannabis and its use as an effective treatment for many veteran diagnoses, and designed the conference as an opportunity for Missourians to educate themselves before voting in November’s historical election.
