What Can We Do for Our Veterans?

December 23, 2021

From the Editor

Welcome to our final 2021 edition of Cannabis Patient Care. We are closing out this year with our annual issue focused on veterans. Veterans play a special role in our society—sacrificing their safety, time, and often mental health to keep our country safe. We owe them more than a debt of gratitude and I think that point was made extremely well by Cherissa Jackson in the "Advocate Focus" piece on page 24. She suggested that we all say more than thank you to our veterans and instead ask what we can do for them. How can we help? The veterans in my life are very tough people who are reluctant to ask for help, but moving forward I will try to keep Jackson’s thought in mind and go beyond a thank you with as many veterans as I can—starting with this very issue of Cannabis Patient Care!
