Grow for Vets USA is now HeroGrownNew Name, Evolved Mission


On January 1, 2018, Grow for Vets U.S.A. continued our exciting evolution by changing our name to HeroGrown. With our new brand comes a new, broader mission and a rededication to helping more American Heroes gain access to cannabis, including Veterans, First Responders, and their families. There are over 20 million military veterans and 10’s of millions of active and retired first responders. In the shadows, a countless number of these heroes are desperately struggling with addiction to deadly drugs prescribed for service related injuries and psychological disorders. With an American dying every 5 minutes from these drugs, it’s our mission to fight for the right of American Heroes to choose cannabis as a safe alternative. HeroGrown is actively lobbying to stop employers and health insurers from testing for the use of cannabis in jurisdictions where cannabis is legal.

Over the past 4 years I’ve been contacted by hundreds of first responders asking for our help. As a former police officer, I feel now’s the right time to answer their calls. First responders are plagued by job-related physical and emotional trauma, often leading to depression and addiction to prescription drugs and alcohol.

They fight for our safety and freedom.It’s our turn to fight for theirs.



American heroes deserve the right to use the medicine of their choice without risking their job, medical benefits, or freedom. Scores of veterans and first responders resort to the use of deadly opiates, dangerous sleeping pills, and alcohol to cope with the pain, stress, and emotional toll of their service. Cannabis is a natural and 100% safe alternative. HeroGrown’s mission is to raise awareness, advocate, and assist veterans, first responders and their families with the use of cannabis as a safe alternative to deadly prescription drugs. Founded in 2014 as Grow for Vets, HeroGrown is nationally recognized as the preeminent organization fighting for our heroes’ right to use cannabis. Free and confidential membership is open to veterans, current and former first responders, and family members.
