1000 Veterans Line Up for Free Marijuana

Sunday, 28 Sep 2014 01:46 PM

A marijuana giveaway for veterans attracted about 1,000 people to a Colorado hotel.

The "Grow 4 Vets" giveaway in Colorado Springs aimed to bring cannabis-based treatments to veterans with service-related conditions as an alternative to pain medications.

The Gazette reports that veterans were given a bag of items that included cannabis oil, an edible chocolate bar and seeds to grow plants.

Marijuana activists have tried unsuccessfully to have post-traumatic stress disorder added to the Colorado list of medical conditions that qualify for joining the medical marijuana registry. Now that pot is legal for all adults over 21, organizers are free to give away marijuana.

Not all who received the bags were veterans. A $20 dollar donation from nonveterans was encouraged.

A similar event was held last weekend in Denver.
