Introduce Yourself

Please help me. My current life is shitty and I want to be happy

Introduce Yourself

I am a 44 old Army Veteran. The issue is since I ETS out the military, I have found it difficult to work with others if I have not smoked any marijuana that day . In addition, because I smoke everyday of course I cant pass a drug test to get a career field type occupation. I just simply want to work around marijuana and everybody that smokes marijuana because the atmosphere and energy is positive, laid back, relaxing and therapeutic. I want to be happy and I am tired of getting up everday pissed the fuck off and dreading being around people I do not give a fuck about . I JUST WANT TO BE HAPPY . I AM MISERABLE AND NEED SOME HELP AND THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY WOULD SAVE MY LIFE !


Hey Raegan, I don't have a job to offer, but many of us fall into a similar category with respect to drug testing. I know I consider it when applying for jobs, and give preference to industry jobs for that reason. The industry jobs that I have had have been fairly laid back in terms of work culture, and were fun and stimulating a good amount of the time. There are exceptions, however, so do your research. Online business reviews can be helpful. Welcome, and please feel free to message me.


Andrew ,

I appreciate you taking the time and showing concern and love. I see what you are saying but I believe my issues run deeper. I just have no drive or passion for nothing and nees to find it. Marijuana is the only thing I do feel passionate about. I do believe however, finding my purpose is going to be the key . I dont know what to do man. I just want to stay true to myself, earn some money stop by the dispensary on the way home and go home and be content and happy with what success I have had.

Thanks again for your time,



Hi Reagan,

I am a recruiter here at Vangst and have been in the Cannabis Industry for the last 7 years. I would love an opportunity to learn more about what you are looking for and how I can help. Here is my calendar, feel free to pick a day/time that works best for you and me to chat!

Best Wishes, Warmest Regards,



I was medically retired from the USAF about 6 years ago partially for major depression. The last half of my military career contributed to the severity of the problem. After separating and experiencing shitty jobs, social isolation and a continued substance abuse habit that I picked up while in the military, I was at rock bottom. Fortunately for me I had a couple of old friends willing to hook me up. I found the more I used cannabis, the better my life got. I no longer had substance abuse problems. I was able to go into public without experiencing panic attacks (in fact, my panic attacks mostly vanished). I quit my shitty job because I was afraid of getting drug tested, but that motivated me to go back to college. In fact, there were two instances that I quit for a while, and both times I ended up in a ward for suicidal thoughts and ideation. My experiences have solidified in my mind that this is a wonder drug, and it most definitely works for me.

I'm sharing my story with you because I want you to know that Andrew is right. Stories like these are common. But when you find yourself deep enough in a hole, it is hard to tell there are others right there with you. It is harder yet to see the exit or even acknowledge it exists.

I'm going to send you a connection request, but if you'd like, I'd be more than happy to connect with you outside of this platform if you'd like to talk it out some. It can be helpful to have a friendly ear.

I hope that you soon start to find what you are looking for. Stay well, my friend.
