Leo Bridgewater Opens Up All About Cannabis Activism
In this episode of Seven Moments Maks, Veteran Leo Bridgewater talks with Host, Maks Tokarev, about his path to Cannabis Activism.
Bridgewater discussed how learning about the rate of Veteran Suicide, and his own friends who became a part of that tragic statistic, prompted him to learn more about what could be done to help prevent it. He became an advocate for getting access to cannabis to those who he felt needed it most.
“I know a lot of people still in uniform, that will be getting out without access to the treatment…I realized that as a Veteran, my voice is different.”
