Sean Judge is a Co-Founder of NEVA New England Veterans Alliance, Inc. A regional non profit corporation, that assists any era veteran through advocacy and safe access to marijuana as well as holding support groups and public enrichment activities. After a career in Public Safety and struggling with trauma from the Iraq War, conventional therapies and treatments failed. I am an opiate addict in recovery and firm believer as a medical marijuana patient, as to its benefits. The next correct thing was to bring this message to other veterans and colleagues. Strong support networks are in place for the cannabis patient, consumer, or non cannabis resources through NEVA.Support groups, events, meetings, and outdoor activities are a few of the ways NEVA has assisted veterans recently.
