The Spliff Potcast


Ep 50 - PTSD and Politics

Big things are happening around mental health and medical marijuana, and it has a lot to do with veterans who are fighting for their right to treat their friends, family and selves for PTSD. But veterans aren't alone in this struggle. Many people can and will suffer with and from PTSD and its associated problems. I'm one of them. Treating it with cannabis is no different than any other condition: it's how your resources meet your needs. That's a lot of variables. So let's Spliff 'em out while I toke on some White Buffalo. Then, I looked more into AUMA, has it changed my mind? No. But, I am a bit better informed and do have more facts I can share about it with you. You make up your own mind.
