About Us

it all started when...


Todd Scattini asked Robert Head to help put on a mixer after the West Point vs. Air Force Academy football game in Arlington, Texas. The mixer was used to highlight the positive impact cannabis is having on veterans’ lives. It was a huge success that led to the development of Hemp for Victory. We’re a non-profit dedicated to educating the public about why veterans are using cannabis over pills. 

Today, our board of directors has grown to almost half a dozen leaders with military, medical, and academic backgrounds. We’re on a mission to educate and bring awareness to the natural solution of cannabis as a way for veterans to manage mental and physical challenges as a result of their service.

understanding the unique challenges of veterans


Veterans are important to the American people because of their selfless service and sacrifice for the country. They’re recognized as national heroes and deeply valued for their contributions and sacrifices to the United States.

They also bring unique skills and experiences to society, making them valuable contributors to the workforce. However, veterans often face unique challenges when transitioning back to civilian life, and it is important for the American people to recognize and support these challenges.



a case for cannabis


One of the many benefits of serving in the military is the concept of the unit or team being utilized to accomplish the mission. Sadly, For many of our veterans, that is something that is decidedly lacking when they leave the service. Many veterans end up feeling isolated as if they have nothing useful to provide to the world after service. Through cannabis and proper therapy, veterans are finding peace and happiness.
