3 Bills Introduced have been knocked down. One of these, has been submitted annually since 2014 (s1). Each bill takes a different approach to granting veterans access to reliable, medical grade cannabis products.
Generally, the annual push has been for HR1647; this functions on an application basis. Veterans fill out prerequisites to be approved by MED. Second batter, HR712, approaches through credibility: Establishing research programs and studies to record the effects, both positive and negative cannabis has on veterans physical and mental health. On Deck, HR2192 essentially grants access outright to any veteran who qualifies under its guidelines. The Department of Veterans Affairs has not warmed up to these proposals however, in spite of the research identifying the mortal concerns to their health multiple studies, according to Ganjapreneur (s1).
According to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (S2), marijuana use will not result in restricted access to their benefits. However, there are no proactive steps to guide veterans to these solutions or to assure their access to these solutions.

Visiting a cannabis dispensary for the first time?
Here are 5 tips for you to make your first visit to the recreational marijuana dispensary.
1. Bring Your ID
According to the Colorado laws, you cannot buy any cannabis products without a valid identification. If your ID has expired, you won’t be able to purchase marijuana products either.
2. Have Cash On Hand
Most cannabis dispensaries accept cash only. However, most of them will have an ATM machine inside. Prepare to pay some service fees if you are planning to use the ATM machine though.
3. How Do You Normally Consume?
There are many different ways you can consume cannabis. Smoking is no longer the only option.
Marijuana dispensaries carry cannabis products ranging from flowers, concentrates, edibles to drinks, chocolate bars, and vaporizers pens.
If you know what you like, let your budtender know. If you’re curious about a new product, or a new method to try don’t hesitate to ask!
4. How Long Do You Want To Be High?
It’s important to know how long you would like the ‘high’ to last as consumption method plays the largest roll in duration and intensity. Do you want a gentle 90 minute smoking experience, or a strong all day edible journey?
Your budtender will be able to assist you in selecting the right product for you.
