This Veteran's day, Vets can get cannabis for just $1 at a dispensary in San Francisco

Veteran's Day in the U.S. is one of the most celebrated and generous holidays when it comes to businesses.  This is because many stores and restaurants will offer incredible deals to Vets, which often include free meals or free items.

And with California now fully immersed in its cannabis legalization following its approval during the 2016 elections, one dispensary in San Francisco is even offering its wares for virtually free this Veteran's Day by giving Vets an eighth of an ounce of marijuana to those who stop by for just $1.


A San Francisco cannabis dispensary, Bloom Room, is offering eighths of lab-tested medical-grade cannabis for $1 to all veterans this Veterans Day. 
General Manager of Bloom Room, Stephen Rechif, tells EIN News that new regulations have forced them to sell the drug to veterans for the first time instead of giving it to them as a donation. 
"We used to be able to give veterans their eighth's for free but that is not allowed with the new laws," said Rechif. 
The purpose of the donation is to help veterans but also to raise awareness about the benefits of medical cannabis for veterans said Rechif.  "As cannabis becomes more mainstream, there is no other group that can benefit more than our veterans and our seniors." - WNCT
Cannabis is proving itself to be a powerful medicinal in the fight against PTSD and other types of depression or mental disorders.  And when you couple this with the multitude of restaurants offering Vets free meals on Nov. 11, former service members can reap the benefits of both worlds by lighting up for less than a buck, and then going out and getting their munchies on the cheap.
