I am proud of the veterans in our family.
My father served in Vietnam & our sibling did numerous tours of duty around the world between the early 1990s & the mid 2000s. Neither of them were ever critically wounded, but the emotional toll was more than enough to handle after retiring. My dad became an engineer & has been with the same company for the last 3 decades. My sibling owns a successful pizza restaurant in a nearby city. It’s appealing spending time with them while all of us were in the Wintertide holidays when all of us all meet for family suppers at our parent’s lake house with our aunts & uncles. My father & sibling are the first people to come to mind whenever veteran’s day rolls around every year. I’m glad that there are more than one separate federal holidays to acknowledge the physical & emotional toll that our armed forces take to protect our civil liberties at home. It makes me glad to see the cannabis dispensaries do their part to honor the troops as well with their large veterans day sales this week. If you are a veteran, you could have bought marijuana products for 30-50% off depending on which dispensary you visited. This is great for a group of people that is disproportionately more likely to experience post-traumatic stress order compared to numerous other people. Even though some cannabis dispensaries offer veterans discounts every day of the year, it’s nice to see additional discounts given on veterans day in certain. My dad was able to get a stackable 40% discount on top of her regular 25% discount at our number one marijuana store. She walked out with a few hundred dollars worth of cannabis products that she got 65% off after all of her discounts were applied to the order.
