"For millions of veterans facing debilitating conditions, federal law makes it illegal for Veteran Health Administration physicians to recommend cannabis as a treatment option, and that’s something we urgently need to change."

Curaleaf & Veterans Cannabis Project

The Veterans Cannabis Project is the leading organization that advocates for unrestricted access of medical cannabis for veterans. Curaleaf is launching a nationwide initiative with the VCP to help bring additional visibility to this important issue and help the millions of veterans dealing with chronic pain and other conditions have better access to quality medical cannabis.

This program will roll-out at Curaleaf dispensaries and our retail partners starting with the state of Maryland and then across the country in states where we operate. $1 will be donated to the Veterans Cannabis Project for every box sold. Other cannabis operators are welcome to contact the VCP for more information on participating as this program rolls out in additional states later in the year.
