Military Veterans Are Finding New Careers In The Marijuana Industry
Thursday, Sep 15, 2016

Like many Americans, I have had friends and family serve in the military. Right now my in laws are stationed in Louisiana, and many of my friends are stationed throughout the world. Many more of my friends and family members served anywhere between 4-20 years in the military, and have since moved on to new adventures in their lives. I have always admired their service, and let them know this whenever I get the chance. I always thank them for fighting for the freedoms I enjoy on a daily basis because of their sacrifices.

I have noticed a lot of my friends and family who were once servicemen or servicewomen having a hard time adjusting to entering back into civilian life. Upon return to civilian life, even some basic tasks took a bit more effort than they remembered them being prior enlisting. One of my best friends Matt served in the National Guard for a total of 8 years, with a tour of duty in Iraq. When he got out of the military, I remember it being really hard for him to re-integrate back into society, especially when it came to employment.
