However, Congress aside, a new group of combatants has entered the field, and the analogy is apt – veterans – by large numbers, are now backing weed and demanding access to it through the Veterans Administration! This is a transpolitical issue and dovetails with our main theme of today’s show – slow, slogging progress, adapting and adjusting as we go, is the only way forward. So, today, when we go Beyond The Norm, America is changing, and we see it when veterans become the frontline soldiers in the war for legal cannabis!
