A place where veterans can be a part of something bigger than themselves again while learning the natural healing benefits that medical cannabis offers. We help ourselves by helping other veterans.
Operation 1620’s purpose is to address, educate, coordinate, and provide aid and relief to reduce and eradicate veteran suicide and substance/pharmaceutical dependence on a national level by creating an online community of knowledge, support and camaraderie.
We provide education by holding free events, services and support built around sharing knowledge for veterans to choose natural medicines over the pharmaceutical options given by the Department of Veterans Affairs and other doctors to treat chronic PTS and pain. Operation 1620 also utilizes social media channels and the corporation’s website to provide facts, statistics, and other related data on causes, current efforts and solutions to help veterans cope with PTS, chronic pain and avoid the overuse of prescription drugs.
