Hi Charles! Great question. There are a lot of great opportunities for veterans in the cannabis industry. I would recommend checking out some of the panels from the AMVETS conference this year, there are some really great conversations around this topic. I've included one of the panels I spoke on that specifically covers careers in cannabis. I hope this helps! https://youtu.be/CuzbFsADMzU

Wow! I thought there were some really good "gems" during this Summit. I thought you all were very inspiring and made me think about my approach to getting into the industry. Instead of "settling" for what I think my lack of cannabis industry experience may qualify me for; look for opportunities to bring the skills and talents I do have to a company that is looking for the right person as opposed to the specific degree or resume. Thank you so much for sending me this link.
