Cannabis may help veterans with PTSD. And lawmakers may be acknowledging that | Forbes

Former Green Beret Adam Smith is one of thousands of veterans who experienced numerous issues after rejoining civilian life. “I had a hard time sleeping lots of anxiety, lots of hyper-vigilance, all the symptoms that revolve around post-traumatic stress,” Smith commented. However, he said he found relief in cannabis, and it was the only kind of medication that was able to relieve certain symptoms. Recently the VA approved testing to see the usefulness of cannabis for veterans, and doctors in states where marijuana is legal are now allowed to prescribe it. Many veterans are irritated with the game that seems to be played at the federal level over the legality of the substance, especially with how many vets have found relief through cannabis.
