Hawaii Veterans Turn to Medical Marijuana for Help
HONOLULU (AP) — A Hawaii group is helping veterans cope with mental health issues by guiding them through how to use medical marijuana.
Honolulu News Now reported Thursday that Complimentary and Alternative Medicine is teaching vets how medical cannabis can help them with PTSD-induced pain and anxiety.
The push comes as Hawaii ramps up its medical marijuana dispensary program.
Program participants say they stumbled across the group after other options did not work.

Marijuana's legalization fuels black market in other states
Marijuana smugglers are growing and shipping vast quantities of illicit cannabis across the USA.
They’re mailing it, driving it and, in at least one case, flying it around in skydiving planes. They’re hiding it in truck beds and trunks and vacuum-sealing it to hide the smell as they pass police officers patrolling the interstates.
Many are starting in states where growing marijuana is legal, such as Colorado, and sending the drug elsewhere.
In June, Colorado prosecutors said they busted a 74-person operation producing 100 pounds of marijuana per month — enough to generate $200,000 monthly, tax free, for more than four years.

Is Jared Kushner at Odds with Jeff Sessions over Mandatory Minimums?
Jared Kushner—Donald Trump’s son-in-law and advisor with zero political experience… just like his boss—is apparently involved in discussions over potential changes to the criminal justice system, including mandatory minimum sentencing, which has ruined the lives of countless non-violent drug offenders.
Meanwhile, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who adores harsh sentencing, is furiously pushing his pitiless, tough-on-crime agenda.
If fresh-faced Kushner can stay out of trouble himself over his meetings with Russians, endless financial conflicts of interest and corruption scandals, he apparently wants to discuss a thing or two with the “beleaguered” Jeff Sessions about tossing people into prison and throwing away the key.
