This Iraq War Vet Was First to Buy Legal Pot in Colorado | Mediaite: "As CNN ominously reported yesterday, as of January 1st Colorado became the first state to legalize marijuana for recreational use. And the very first person to take advantage of the new law? Iraq War veteran and activist Sean Azzariti.
Azzariti, who spent six years in the Marines and served two tours in Iraq, publicly lobbied for the legislation, arguing that it can help veterans like him who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.
“I couldn’t be more excited,” Azzariti told the press before the register at Denver’s 3D Cannabis Center officially opened for business. “It’s huge, we’re changing the world.”"
