Eaze, the on-demand cannabis marketplace, today announced the launch of a new program to expand access to cannabis for U.S. veterans. Beginning this Veterans Day (Sunday, November 11), veterans will receive a 25% discount on products purchased through Eaze. The discount reflects Eazes commitment to helping veterans safely access sustainable, affordable relief from PTSD, physical disabilities, chronic pain, and other combat-related conditions.
Through its Social Impact program, Eaze advocates for access to those who rely on cannabis and can’t afford it in many cases. Eaze has worked with veterans organizations, including Operation EVAC, over the last year to better understand the barriers preventing veterans from accessing cannabis, which is being studied as a treatment for PTSD. Affordability has remained a persistent issue.
Helping patients is a cornerstone of Eazes mission, said Jim Patterson, CEO of Eaze. As an Air Force veteran, Ive watched friends and colleagues struggle with war injuries and trauma. I strongly believe we should give vets and doctors as many options as possible to help them live their best lives.
“Veterans day is an annual opportunity to salute and celebrate the defenders of our Homeland while properly welcoming them home, said Ryan Miller, Founder of Operation EVAC. Educating veterans about the benefits of cannabis and providing support groups has been an ongoing mission of ours. Partnering with Eaze has been a blessing to our community to provide safe, legal channels of access for them.”
To receive the Eaze discount, veterans must email proof of their veteran status to [email protected]. Once approved, the discount is automatic. For verification, veterans must email front AND back photos of one of the following: Veterans Identification Card (VIC), Veterans Health Identification Card (VHIC), State-Issued Drivers License or ID card with Veteran Designation, Uniformed Services ID Card, or Common Access Card (CAC).
