The Greenhouse of Walled Lake would like to personally extend our sincerest gratitude to our veterans for their sacrifices and service to our great country. Without men and women like yourselves, none of us would be able to lead the lives we do today.

We are committed to our focus on patient education, wellness, and to the building and maintaining of professional and strong relationships with our patients, caregivers and the community. The education that our patients seek to improve their quality of life with the therapeutic benefits of medical marijuana, is the very foundation that The Greenhouse of Walled Lake is built upon.

All information related to new research and procedures emerge through technology, medical research and best practices will be made readily available to all patients, caregivers and visiting patients. We are here to help.

To say thanks, on Monday, November 12th, we’ll be hosting a Veterans Only Cannabis Education event at The GREENHOUSE of WALLED LAKE. GREENHOUSE Team Leader Angie Roullier and GREENHOUSE Product Specialist and US NAVY Veteran Ryan Schuler will lead an informative discussion and answer all your questions about medical marjuana.

The VHA (Veterans Health Administration) in the past resisted making cannabis recommended treatments available to veterans. Cannabis has been found to help many patients suffering from conditions that can afflict veterans as a result of their service, including chronic pain, cancer, ALS, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorders, and phantom limb pain. State medical cannabis programs making therapeutic use legal with a doctor’s recommendation were in place for almost 15 years before the VA changed its policy to allow veterans who use medical cannabis to receive all VA health services. In January, 2011, Robert A. Petzel M.D., the Under Secretary for Health, issued VHA Directive 2011-004, which states that “patients participating in State marijuana programs must not be denied VHA services.”

The American Legion in 2017, did a nationwide survey which found 39 percent of respondents affirm that they "know a veteran" who is using the plant medicinally. Twenty-two percent of respondents said they themselves "use cannabis to treat a mental or physical condition” — such as chronic pain, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder.  

Here are some highlights from the survey

  • 92 percent of all veterans support research into medical cannabis.

  • 83 percent of all veteran households support legalizing medical cannabis.

  • Support for medical cannabis research is consistent nationwide, across ages, gender, political affiliation and geography.

  • 60 percent of respondents do not live in states where medical cannabis is currently legal.

  • 79 percent of respondents aged 60+ supported federally legalized medical cannabis.

  • 22 percent of veterans stated they are currently using cannabis to treat a medical condition.

  • 40 percent of caregivers stated they know a veteran who is using medical cannabis to alleviate a medical condition.
