ALL AMERICANS who need cannabis should have access to it, NOT JUST VETERANS.
While 22+ a day die from suicide in the veteran population, over 121 commit suicide every day in the civilian population. As veterans, we know we are the public face of PTSD, but we are fighting for ALL Americans’ access to this and EVERY sacred plant of healing. These plants are crucial tools to recover not just from the scars of war, but from abuse, assault, neglect, and horrific accidents. Countless more need it for neurological or other physical and mental issues. We fight for freedom, and nobody is free until everyone is free.
We have sworn an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic. No one relieved us of this oath. We may have put down our weapons, but where we were warriors of violence before, now we are warriors for peace. We have forged our swords into plowshares.
We have invested more in this society than most. The blood, the sweat, the tears, our brother’s bodies, the trauma, the memories, the broken past. But we are FULLY committed now to a brighter future for ALL Americans. We have a vested interest in seeing this society work. We have no choice but to move forward, the past is too horrific.
We are accustomed to picking up a fallen flag and carrying it home, we are trained and proficient in the skills necessary, and we have the intestinal fortitude required to accomplish the mission. Freedom for ALL is our flag, and we WILL carry it home.
So don’t be surprised when a veteran gets home from war and finds a flag lost in the mud, picks it up, brushes it off, and carries it home. We are proud to fight for those who are still too hurt, too angry, too scared, or too heartbroken to do so themselves. It’s what we were born to do.
