I am a cannabis refugee and veteran of the 101st Airborne Infantry, with two deployments to Afghanistan and one medevac from theater of operations.
I came to Colorado in 2013 to use cannabis as replacement therapy for the toxic pharmaceutical drugs that were slowly killing me. In 2014 I obtained one of the first R&D licenses in the US along with a few others here in the state, and I obtained my first seeds from feral stock in northeastern Colorado near the border of Nebraska. I’ve been teasing recessive traits out of the stock now for a few years, and doing a few selective crossbreeds.
I now run a nonprofit dedicated to ending the drug war, promoting legalization of plant medicines in America, and stopping the suicide epidemic by exploring alternate therapies. Cannabis is the modern veteran’s best bet so far at staying alive post-deployment.
