Founded in 2014 as Grow for Vets, HeroGrown is nationally recognized as the preeminent organization fighting for our heroes’ right to use cannabis. With our new name 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.
