Download our brochure  > Sign up for newsletter  >


We are an advocacy group of Veterans for Veterans who use medical cannabis. We provide education, safe access, information on VA resources and benefits, and an opportunity for veterans to work with other veterans within the cannabis industry. The VCG also helps strengthen the veteran community relationship with their local cannabis businesses and governments.

Q & A: Aaron Augustis of the Veteran's Cannabis Group  >

The use of medical marijuana is known to address profound symptoms that are difficult to treat otherwise. There is currently an epidemic of veteran suicide in America that we hope to prevent by easing pain and anguish with cannabis use.

Veterans Cannabis Group is a California based not-for-profit collective.


Aaron Augustis

Aaron Augustis served in the US Army and was part of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. He can attest to the medicinal effects of cannabis when dealing with a traumatic life event such as the war in Iraq.

  • SGT Augustis played a vital role in the initial inventories of the Iraqi V Corps ASP.
  • SGT Augustis and his team were responsible for destroying over 30 tons of threat ordinance in Mosul.
  • During the hasty evacuation of the Iraqi V Corps ASP, SGT Augustis was able to move his team to safety without losing his accountability of any personnel or sensitive items.
  • SGT Augustis' knowledge and expertise in the areas of patrolling were a tremendous asset to his team and his squad.

    Cannabis Therapy
    Getting Healthy, Not High

    That we have an Endo-Cannabinoid System (ECS) was only imagined in the early 1990’s. We now know that it is our foundational internal homeostatic regulatory system, involved in almost every physiological process. Its presence is everywhere.

    Using EndoCannabinoids, short lived signaling molecules named after the Cannabis plant but produced in our bodies, the ECS initiates changes starting at the cellular level. Working through a multitude of strategies, it calls our body to action in regaining and then maintaining internal physiological balance, a healthy state of life.....



    Our mission is to support the growth and healing of veterans through mutual assistance, personal development, and community service.
