Curaleaf (OTC: CURLF) continues to expand its partnership with the Veterans Cannabis Project (VCP) to help veterans gain legal access to medical cannabis. The company has started offering its products to veterans in Oregon.
The VCP advocates for legal and supported access of medical cannabis for veterans through the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Customers can now purchase a custom-designed Veterans Cannabis Project pre-roll product, with a portion of all proceeds benefiting the VCP. Each box includes five pre-rolls (total of 2.5 grams) of UKU flower – one of Oregon’s top selling flower brands – and will be available for $13.
“Raising awareness of veterans’ access to cannabis is an important issue for Curaleaf,” Tim Fitzpatrick, president of Curaleaf Oregon, said in a statement, noting that the company “can play an important role by educating veterans and consumers on how cannabis may be of great benefit for veterans. We are proud to be able to support our veterans as they look to improve their quality of life.”
Curaleaf launched the Veterans Cannabis Project initiative in Maryland earlier this year. Its products are currently available for purchase in Maryland, Maine and Arizona. The company will continue rolling out the program at Curaleaf dispensaries across the U.S.
Meanwhile, the Veterans Cannabis Project says that cannabis products will also be available for purchase at other cannabis operators later this year.
