Marijuana: Operation Grow4Vets to provide free cannabis to veterans

Last week, a bill intended to add post-traumatic stress disorder to the list of approved conditions for treatment by medical marijuana failed in the Colorado legislature-- a decision one advocate called "shameful."

Roger Martin agrees. He's the executive director of Operation Grow4Vets, a new project intended to provide cannabis for veterans as an alternative to prescription narcotics. The price? Free.
