How Investors Are Helping Veterans Access Medical Cannabis

“Medical Cannabis for Troubled Veterans? A Congressional Subcommittee Takes Up the Complicated Topic”


We need a congressional subcommittee to decide whether or not our veterans should be able to use medical cannabis to treat things such as traumatic brain injuries and PTSD?

And it’s a complicated topic?

Pardon my French, but are you f**king me?

If you’re a regular reader of these pages, you know I have little faith in the government to do the right thing.

Hell, I have little faith in the government to really do anything right. And this has nothing to do with who happens to be squatting at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

This is about little more than the continuation of this idea that government has any right to control what you choose to put in your body and how you choose to medicate.

Last week, I talked about this very issue, discussing the basic fundamentals of personal sovereignty while asking the question, “Who owns you?”

As an advocate of personal sovereignty, I find this notion — of the government putting together a subcommittee to decide whether or not our brave men and women in uniform can decide what kind of medicine to take to help heal the wounds of war — to be not only absurd but also incredibly offensive.

Some of the folks on this subcommittee have never even served, yet they know what’s best for our veterans?

The good news is that despite the bureaucratic buffoonery that continues to roam the halls of Congress, pretty soon every veteran in this country will be able to access medical cannabis — and without asking permission from the state.

Free Market Capitalism, Not Government, Is the Solution

Yesterday afternoon, I took part in an interview, where one of the questions challenged my long-held belief that capitalism is a catalyst for positive change.

The interview wasn’t hostile at all. It was fair and honest, and the questions were merely presented to instigate a rational dialogue.

I wish all interviews could be this polite.

In any event, it wasn’t hard to make my point that capitalism can be a catalyst for positive change, simply by illustrating how the legal cannabis market exists today — helping thousands of sick people effectively treat all kinds of illnesses — because private industry, not government, has made it possible.

Truth is, if we had to wait around for the federal government to make a decision on this, we’d have a lot more sick people suffering right now.

But instead, the power of the free market has overshadowed government incompetence and has resulted in a very positive sea change that’s sweeping across this nation.

Getting Rich Has Never Felt This Good

Today, medical cannabis in some form is legal in 33 states. And more will be legalizing in the next year or two. But don’t thank so-called altruistic politicians for this. This is merely the result of the free market operating in defiance of federal law.

I’m not going to lie. I love that!

And what makes it even better is that those who have invested and continue to invest in the cannabis market are making a ton of money while also serving as a catalyst for positive change.

Without robust investment in the cannabis market, it would be impossible for the industry to have come so far in such a short amount of time. But now that investors have seen just how much money they can make by investing in cannabis, the power of the free market is shining — and it’s forcing the government to end the prohibition on cannabis.

Mark my words: Within two years, the prohibition of cannabis will be repealed, and U.S. veterans everywhere will no longer have to wait for a subcommittee to decide whether or not they can medicate as they see fit.

And of course, those who are investing in the cannabis space today continue to make a killing.

In fact, I just sent out a new investment note to members of my Green Chip Stocks investment community, detailing a handful of new cannabis stocks that we’re now investing in.

These stocks are similar to previous cannabis stocks I recommended and then ultimately sold for massive gains.

Here are just few of those winners:

  • Aphria, Inc. (TSX: APHA) — 1,174% gain
  • MariMed (OTC: MRMD) — 395.5% gain
  • Aleafia Health (TSX: ALEF) — 86.42% gain
  • Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) — 3,015% gain
  • OrganiGram Holdings (TSX-V: OGI) — 1,185% gain

And there are plenty more to come, too.

I put together a list of some of the cannabis stocks we’re focusing on now. You can get access to that list by clicking this link.

You can also check out this report, which outlines the methodology I use to find so many quality cannabis stocks, such as the ones I just told you about that all delivered double-, triple-, and even quadruple-digit gains.

I’m not going to lie…

It feels pretty damn good making a boatload of cash while helping to make it possible for our veterans to get access to their medicine. And all in defiance of a government run by crooks, thugs, and Luddites.

If you don’t believe me, just give it a try for yourself.

To a new way of life and a new generation of wealth…
