Improving U.S. Military Veterans Quality Of Life Through Access To Cannabis

NCIA’s Michelle Rutter and Michael Correia are joined byNick Etten, the founder of the Veterans Cannabis Project, the leading national organization dedicated to improving U.S. military veterans’ quality of life through access to cannabis for medical purposes.

Etten is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and a former Navy SEAL, with 20 years of operations, private equity, and non-profit management experience.


He holds an MBA from Northwestern University. As a U.S. Naval Academy graduate and former Navy SEAL, Nick was taught to lead from the front and to engage the enemy with the most effective tools at my disposal. Today, many of Texas’ 1.7 million veterans are waging a daily battle with the physical and mental wounds that are a result of their military service. This fight should be waged with every tool at their disposal. Cannabis, also known as medical marijuana, must be one of those tools for Texas veterans.
