One Veteran to another—AMAZING

Montel, thank you so much for informing and educating our community about cannabis and it’s many benefits. As a Veteran myself I’m honored to call you a brother in arms not only from a military standpoint but from an advocacy standpoint for cannabis. Someday, maybe you and I can lead the charge together to force the VA to allow recommendations from VA physicians to our Veterans and require that cannabis medicine be grown and produced by Veterans and not BIG PHARMA. All my best, and maybe we could get you as a guest on the Veterans For Cannabis podcast someday too. V/R, Joshua Littrell CEO Veterans For Cannabis

Educator and Advocate

The guests and information on Montel's show are pioneers and educators in the cannabis space. There is emerging research on how cannabis is indeed medicine but it is muddled by laws and red tape. Montel and the guests he has are on a mission to cut through the buracracy and misinformation out there. I continue to learn more and more about this plant medicine daily. Excellent structured discussions.

Absolutely excellent material and exposure of the industry!

As a member of the cannabis industry community, I absolutely give credit to Montel for bringing awareness to some of the areas of the industry that are not talked about, and even worse, often swept under the rug.
Montel is shedding light on both the social and political sides of issues that affect our economy, government, and every day life. Not only are his posts educational, but they are also relevant in today’s society, unlike so many messages that were born out of the “Reefer Madness” era, and have damaged the reputation of so many hard-working, responsible cannabis consumers.
Thank you for being an advocate for the so many that are silenced by stigma and stereotypes, and unjustly judged by society. You are appreciated, and what you are doing is so important! Please don’t stop!
