About The 2015 Cannaball Run:
To highlight the mounting evidence surrounding this urgent issue, a cross-country education and awareness campaign is being hosted by MagicalButter.com and The Weed For Warriors Project in the 2015 Cannaball Run for Vets.
This awareness campaign intends to build public awareness about the VA’s refusal to allow cannabis therapy as a treatment option for PTSD and TBI (traumatic brain injury.) The campaign is seeking an alternative treatment path away from the harmful pharmaceutical narcotics now commonly being prescribed to afflicted vets that lead to addiction and suicidal tendencies.
An estimated 22 veterans a day, or 8,000 annually, commit suicide as a result of war trauma, up from a low of 18 per year in 2007, according to a 2012 VA Suicide Data Report.
The sponsors of the Cannaball Run for Vets are requesting that the VA allow cannabis therapy to be considered a viable, valid treatment option because the war trauma that leads to PTSD and TBI (traumatic brain injury) should be considered a qualifying condition for medical cannabis. The current VA treatment protocol commonly relies on pharmaceutical narcotic drugs that may be addictive and have unwanted side effects.
Please come out to the Cannabis Network Radio headquarters on Saturday, October 24th to show your support. Can't wait to see you there!
