The Texas NORML Senior Alliance and Veterans Outreach proudly presents a discussion about “Veterans, PTSD and Cannabis Therapy” on Thursday, May 24th beginning at 6 PM at The Atrium at the Activity Center, 1 Texas Dr., Sun City, TX. Doors open at 5:30. Texas NORML is returning to Sun City to meet residents and help educate the Sun City community about the benefits of medical treatment using medical cannabis.
The two hour program will include a presentation from Retired Army Major David Bass who will share his journey from combat duty, the adjustment to returning home, his opioid use and exit and his need to be involved with changing our Texas cannabis laws. Additionally, we’ll hear from Jax Finkel and Heather Fazio who will inform attendees on the latest on the 2019 session and the importance for all to be involved with the process.
At our last Sun City meeting, we, unfortunately, had to turn away approximately 50 people due to space restraints. To avoid any disappointment, we are using Eventbrite to have everyone who registers to have a seat at the event. The tickets are FREE, but we need to keep our total number under the Fire Marshall’s guidelines.
Follow our Facebook event page for live updates.
We hope to see you at our May meeting and look forward to meeting and seeing new faces in Sun City. Have any questions? Please reach out to [email protected]
