Iraq War Veteran Makes Colorado’s First Legal Marijuana Purchase
Sean Azzariti was the first person to purchase legal recreational marijuana in Colorado on New Year’s Day. He purchased about $60 worth of Bubba Kush and a pot truffle, swarmed by the media in this staged photo opportunity.
Azzariti, who served six years in the Marine Corps and two tours in Iraq, turned to weed after receiving prescriptions for daily doses of Xanax, Klonopin, and Adderall to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder.
"I just looked at this cocktail, and I was like I just can’t do this … [Cannabis] saved my life, basically."
Hella couldn’t wait. And he served our country. Respect
