A petition aimed at removing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from the list of qualify conditions for the New Mexico medical marijuana program failed last week. The fact that someone felt the need to try this BS right before Veteran’s Day shows such a lack of compassion towards veterans that it makes me want to cry.
“The New Mexico Medical Cannabis Advisory Board unanimously ruled Wednesday to reject the petition by an Albuquerque psychiatrist who said there was a lack of scientific evidence proving medical marijuana helped those with PTSD. The board voted 7-0 to recommend that interim Health Secretary Brad McGrath reject the petition despite the claims. About 3,300 New Mexicans used a PTSD diagnosis to qualify for a license.” according to The Daily Times.
