PTSD and medical marijuana

New York State is considering adding PTSD as an approved condition  in the NYS Medical Marijuana Program. This is a Very Good Idea.

There is a ton of experience out there indicating that marijuana works for anxiety in lots of different people, especially  veterans who suffer with PTSD . Don’t expect the VA system to wake up any time soon.

Like any other class of medicine, medical marijuana’s effect on the endocannabinoid system may work or not work for any one individual.  There is overwhelming evidence from veteran’s lived experience that it should be available to folks as just another class of medicine to try.  With all these guys have sacrificed for us, it just seems right that we should give them the opportunity to live each day a little better. Contact your state legislator and tell them what you think.
