D.C.: Veterans To Rally At The White House Wednesday For Medical Marijuana
This Veteran’s Day, Wednesday, Nov. 11, veterans and activists will gather to walk from the Veteran’s Affairs Headquarters down Pennsylvania Avenue to the gates of the White House where they will be disposing of thousands empty prescription pill bottles collected from their brothers and sisters across the country in memory of those whose sacrifices did not end on the battlefield.
With the current veteran suicide rate at 22 per day, it is time for the VA to recognize alternate forms of war trauma treatment for our veterans.
"Join us tomorrow at the White House gates to witness firsthand the cause that veterans, their families, and advocate associations alike are fighting for," said event organizer, world-renowned cannabis expert and veterans' rights activist Garyn Angel.
Angel will lead thousands of United States veterans and several national veterans’ organizations during the march.
