World War II Infantryman and Doctor of Pharmacology, Dr. Phillip Leveque, speaks of the promise of cannabis therapy as an option for veterans fighting Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Dr. Leveque feels that pharmaceuticalization perpetuated by the Veteran's Administration (VA) has hurt soldiers upon their return from the battlefield and suggests cannabis as an alternative treatment is a viable therapy to help suppress PTSD.
As a Veteran who suffers from PTSD as a result of my military experience, i can honestly say that the "treatment" i received from the VA made my condition worse...Anti-depressants, etc...are not the answer! They have screwed me up both mentally and physically, making me more depressed, anxious, etc...The only thing the VA was mainly concerned about was the dangerous side effects of the drugs they prescribed to me...WTF! how is that treatment?
We need more viable and "natural" remedies and/or solutions to this growing epidemic called PTSD...Medical Marijuana Therapy seems to be the answer...Marijuana has helped me with my symptoms and dramatically improves my over-all outlook on life, etc...but of course in most areas of the globe it is still outlawed, and "self medicating" is frowned upon...You can be arrested and have your life literally destroyed for trying to ease the suffering you experience on a daily basis!
Time to WAKE UP! people and realize that natural remedies are the only cure!
