Memorial Day 2015, what a weekend !
We saw our coastal parking lots FULL of people!!! Wow you guys really like Mendo.
Saw the new construction doing its job at Glass Beach, will have pics to follow that..
We remembered the Veterans and saw some important news for them (from Americans For Safe Access) :
“The US Senate Committee on Appropriations voted to add the Veterans Equal Access Amendment (VEAA) to the 2016 budget for the Veterans Administration (VA). This landmark amendment would end the current gag order that prevents VA doctors from recommending or even discussing medical cannabis with veterans in states where it is legal.
There is now real chance that federal law will change and veterans who depend on the VA for health care will finally be able to discuss medical cannabis with their doctors and use it to treat serious conditions like chronic pain, PTSD, phantom limb syndrome, traumatic brain injury, and more.
The Senate vote was historic, but we still have to get VEAA approved in the House of Representatives – where a similar measure lost by only three votes last year – and signed by the President. That means we need to do more direct advocacy, rally more grassroots support, and keep this story in the national media spotlight. “
We here at mendo.ninja appreciate and honor the Veterans on this Memorial Day of 2015.Share:
