NuggMD, a telemedicine platform, is providing free online medical marijuana evaluations to the nation’s veterans this Friday.
The free evaluations will be offered to all veterans seeking a medical marijuana evaluation in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, or West Virginia who provide valid proof of service and their state-issued identification.
Veterans can access this benefit for the entire business day, from 8 AM to 10 PM in their local time zone.
“We owe our prosperity and freedom to our brave veterans,” stated Alex Milligan, chief marketing officer and co-founder of NuggMD. “These completely free evaluations are our way of offering humble thanks and gratitude for their service and sacrifices.”
“Rates of PTSD range from 10% to 30% among war-time veterans,” stated Collin Mann, NuggMD CEO and co-founder. “9.1% suffer from chronic pain. These veterans need options. The solutions aren’t one-size-fits-all. Of those who use cannabis, more than 40% report using it for medical reasons, and these patients deserve to have this option. This is their right, but money’s tough right now. So we’re here to help.”
NuggMD’s affiliated medical cannabis practitioners have provided over a million evaluations since their launch in 2016.
“The response to our nationwide expansion has been incredible,” stated NuggMD’s COO and co-founder Kam Babazade. “NuggMD is now available to nearly 200 million Americans, and we’ll be adding more states soon.”
