West Hollywood Pot Shop Offers Free Marijuana To Veterans

WEST HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — A pot shop in West Hollywood is offering free marijuana to military men and women.

KNX 1070’s Margaret Carrero reports that Zen Healing has offered “freebies” to the homeless and disabled for years, but they’ve extended that generosity to veterans.

“This was just a way to give a little more into a group that I feel, is obviously not necessarily homeless, but is something that needs to be addressed,” said owner Andrew Kramer.

A medical marijuana patient said, “If goodies are something that makes them feel better, and gives them happiness and comfort to their lives, I think that’s a great thing.”

Some research suggests that medical marijuana use helps alleviate symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, but those studies remain limited.
