Two weeks ago, Colorado surprisingly and saddeningly rejected medical marijuana for Army veterans with PTSD. Given the proven medical benefits for those suffering from PTSD and the amount of veterans in need of marijuana as medicine in the state, the decision makes little sense and deserves the community’s resilience.
Fortunately, the state’s cannabis community never goes away quietly, and the community has rallied against this unjust result. To spark the conversation and need for medical marijuana to treat PTSD, Grow for Vets and Partners are holding a rally next Saturday to hopefully change this tide.
