Some Veterans Using Cannabis To Help Manage PTSD

The AP (3/22, Finley) reports that some veterans are “increasingly using cannabis” to manage their post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) “even though it remains illegal in most states and is unapproved by the Department of Veterans Affairs because major studies have yet to show it is effective against PTSD.” Even though studies have “been contradictory and limited, some former members of the military say pot helps them manage their anxiety, insomnia and nightmares.”
