NuggMD provided free online medical marijuana evaluations to the nation’s veterans on Friday, Nov. 11.
“We owe our prosperity and freedom to our brave veterans,” said Alex Milligan, chief marketing officer and co-founder of NuggMD. “These completely free evaluations are our way of offering humble thanks and gratitude for their service and sacrifices.
The free evaluations were offered to all veterans seeking a medical marijuana evaluation in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Virginia or West Virginia who provided valid proof of service and their state-issued identification.
Veterans were able to access this benefit for the entire business day, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. in their local time zone.
“Rates of PTSD range from 10% to 30% among war-time veterans,” said Collin Mann, NuggMD CEO and co-founder. “9.1% suffer from chronic pain. These veterans need options. The solutions aren’t one-size-fits-all. Of those who use cannabis, more than 40% report using it for medical reasons, and these patients deserve to have this option. This is their right, but money’s tough right now. So, we’re here to help.”
NuggMD made it simple for veterans to use this benefit on Veterans Day. All they had to do was simply click the live chat feature on the website to speak to a NuggMD support representative. The next available customer service agent walked them through the process of supplying their proof of service.
NuggMD’s affiliated medical cannabis practitioners have provided over a million evaluations since its launch in 2016.
“The response to our nationwide expansion has been incredible,” said NuggMD’s chief operating officer and co-founder Kam Babazade. “NuggMD is now available to nearly 200 million Americans, and we’ll be adding more states soon.”
