A Former Combat Nurse Talks about Cannabis for Veterans



There’s a nationwide push to help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) gain legal access to cannabis as a medical treatment. A bipartisan bill was recently filed in Congress and the first FDA-regulated study on cannabis use by veterans showed promising results.

Join the next Conversations on Cannabis virtual forum on Thursday, July 22 at noon to learn and talk with Cherissa Jackson, the Chief Medical Executive for AMVETs, a national organization that advocates for veterans health and well-being.

Jackson, who calls herself “America’s Combat Nurse,” will talk about the organization’s efforts to educate veterans about the potential benefits of medical cannabis and her experience overcoming PTSD.
