About the Event

Thanks to the generosity of the Berkeley Patients Group, and with the support of Operation E*V*A*C, the Veterans Cannabis Coalition (VCC) is having its first fundraiser in order to help build a sustainable organization that can meet the challenge of ending cannabis prohibition. Come join us for a catered reception and a short presentation by VCC's founder, Eric Goepel.

Fresh off playing a part in the historic advancement of H.R.5520, the VA Medicinal Cannabis Research Act, and creating a council of veteran advocates across the nation, the Veterans Cannabis Coalition is looking to expand operations this summer and fall. We will be persuing a 'grasstops' strategy of identifying, organizing, and training veteran leaders in key states to effectively engage, and hold accountable, their elected representatives while spreading the message that cannabis is helping veterans deal with their injuries where other options have failed. In conjunction, we will be building a media campaign around the stories of veterans who medicate with cannabis, the challenges they face, and how citizens can get involved.

We have an ambitious schedule ahead of us, and we could use your help in funding these efforts. This is intended as an organizing, communications/media, and federal advocacy push before the mid-terms to give us the most favorable odds of passing the VA Medicinal Cannabis Research Act this year. There is an opportunity to get the first piece of cannabis reform legislation in U.S. history on the books, and we aim to do everything we can to make that happen.

About the Organizer

The Veterans Cannabis Coalition is a non-profit advocacy group based in Washington, D.C. focused on bringing veterans equal access to cannabis, eliminating stigma and sanctions associated with its use, and to get VA funded, researched, and developed cannabis-based medications into the pharmacy system. To that end we work on supporting legislation in Congress, organizing veterans in key Congressional districts and battleground states to petition their elected representatives, and educate lawmakers and the general public.
