Veterans Using Marijuana To Ease Ptsd Symptoms


Recommended Posts



The young veteran from New Mexico was reluctant to take prescription drugs after he saw their effect on his older sister, another veteran suffering with PTSD.

"You’d ask her to get something and it was almost like she was doing it in slow motion. And sometimes she’d slur like she was drunk but she wasn’t. She was just on the pain meds," said the soldier.

She was addicted to the medication, he said.

"She took a nap one day and just didn’t wake up," remembered the soldier.

His sister was 30 years old when she died.
