Good morning everyone!
I just received a phone call from a 65 year old army ranger with PTSD by the name of David Hermanson, that worked at the hotel conference center where the last CannaGrow Expo was hosted at in Denver, CO.
David explained to me that he had an accident on the job shortly after the expo that caused him to have to take a drug test and he tested positive for THC. The company (the hotel) fired him for their drug policy, denied his workers compensation, and he’s been without work for months. He’s got a 15 year old autistic son he takes care of and he’s 2 months late on rent.
I talked to Shawn Lerma @shawn1 with Operation Compassionate Care, a 501c nonprofit that helps veterans with PTSD understand the benefits of cannabis as an alternative to opiates and they were offering to help pay to get David his MED badge in the state of Colorado to try to get him into a line of work that allowed him to take THC and CBD as his medicine.
I’d like to ask anyone in the Denver area of Colorado from the @memberdirectory if they would know of anyone hiring or would have anything for a person of this skill set to do. He said he would mop floors if it meant he could provide for his son. @HempStaff @vangsttalent
David’s cell phone 720 448 1359 . I have his home address as well.
I don’t know this individual personally, in fact today was the first time we’ve ever spoken. I know this though, life sometimes tosses us lemons. We can let it be sour, or we can find the sugar and a pitcher of water and make something that can be enjoyed.
Appreciate any consideration! Thanks Growers Network!
