The decision by Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) to reduce medical marijuana coverage for veterans from 10 grams a day to 3 grams a day will result in horrific consequences for veterans suffering from PTSD and chronic pain who depend on 10 grams a day for their health and well being.
As a response to this announcement, Marijuana For Trauma (MFT) is taking action and organizing its largest Peer Support meeting EVER at Parliament Hill on Thursday, May 18, 2017 in protest of the proposed reduction of the current MMJ coverage by VAC under Blue Cross’s Program of Choice 10, from Ten to Three grams a day.
This MFT peer support protest is in honour of and respect for the 158 men and women who did not return from Afghanistan and their families. To kick off the campaign, we will be launching a 158-day campaign clock that starts Monday, Dec.12th @ 4:20pm, on an FB page solely dedicated to this project:
Follow the campaign and March to Parliament online or join MFT Founder, Fabian Henry and his supporters as they walk from MFT HQ in Oromocto, New Brunswick to Parliament Hill in Ottawa. This initiative is to raise awareness around mental health in hopes for change.
