A personal mission for me is to create and administer a cannabis manufacturing business that will bring genuine accountability for product efficacy, and standards for product concentration as well as dosage understanding. As a veteran I have seen both the affects of conventional treatment of service connected trauma and have observed first hand the dramatic and beneficial effect of cannabis for PTSD. While this may not be universally true, the soldiers that have been give marijuana regimens have been able to reduce the use or both opioid and psychiatric medications, as well as reduced alcohol consumption. A side affect of these mainstream medications can be depression and suicidal tendencies in the patient. If marijuana can reduce the current suicide rate for veterans (20+ per day) this is motivation for me to be a part of helping to make this happen.
Over the past 50 years Jim has founded and created new businesses, demonstrated leadership, management skills and administrative ability while maintaining a leadership role within several industries.
