imagesThis was on the front page of my fishwrap this morning. I don’t normally discuss the pros or cons of pot as a medicine. I think adults can come to their own conclusions on the subject with one simple test. What is evident is that those with no medical training or PTSD are at the forefront of a misguided movement saying there is no medical proof that it is beneficial. Some even go so far as to insinuate that it may actually be harmful and increase or magnify the effects of major mental disorders like PTSD. 

Let’s perform the logic test. Feel free to utilize inductive or deductive thought processes for this exercise. Have you ever heard of anyone armoring up and going out to hunt humans after a few bong hits? It’s far more likely they’ll make a frontal assault on the refer after the reefer. I don’t much remember those years after I came home from two tours in SEA. Without getting too specific, perhaps I was ahead of the curve on this by 42 years. I don’t advocate for or against the use. I live in one of the two states where it is now legal and no social approbation will attach to my comments. The VA can go piss up a rope. I’m twenty years protected now.

    While not a user since my 20’s I have a good friend with massive PTSD problems. I would be willing to go before anyone to testify about the drastic change for the good he receives from hemp
