About 200 people gathered outside the Washington State Capitol on Friday for the second annual Veteran Suicide Awareness March to bring hope to war veterans and advocate for a bill that would include post traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury in the state’s medical cannabis program.

Twenty22Many, which organized the march, is trying to address the overwhelming number of veteran suicides happening around the nation.
