Leo Bridgewater was an Army Specialist who served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and worked with some of the Army’s highest ranked officers as a communications liaison before retiring with an honorable discharge. Having struggled with PTSD himself, he began advocating for veteran access to cannabis after learning that several of his veteran friends lost their battles with PTSD and took their own lives. He was one of three veterans asked to testify before the New Jersey State Assembly to lobby for PTSD to be added to the list of qualifying conditions under the state’s medical marijuana program. He invites veterans to connect with him through his nonprofit organization, New Jersey Cannabis Commission and at Facebook/LeoBridgewater.
If not for the generosity of our supporters, we wouldn’t be here! We’d first like to express gratitude for our radio sponsors Alpine Miracle, Healthtera and Compassionate Certification Centers. We’d also like to shout out to our producer, Ed, our engineers and the team at Star Worldwide Networks, Erik Godal, the composer of our theme “Evergreen,” Dr. Bryan Doner for the Medical Marijuana Minute and XRQK Radio Network, Society Bytes Radio and Be Real Management for helping us spread the word. We are grateful!
