Foundation to Help Fund PTSD Research and Get Veterans Jobs in the Pot Industry

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, May, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

Dr. Sue Sisley, a psychiatrist and former clinical assistant professor at Arizona University (AU), is one of the nation’s foremost scientific experts on medical marijuana.

Although she’s never served in the military Sisley, wears or carries a dog tag stamped with the number “22,” as a constant reminder of how many American vets commit suicide each day—most suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, according to data from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

“Even though we all realize that is a falsely low number… it is a horrific number,” Sisley told NewsMax Health, noting that veteran suicides far outnumber the national civilian average.

After leaving AU, where she received her medical degree, Sisley finally received approval from the government to study cannabis for PTSD.

Now she has joined forces with a U.S. veteran, Roberto Pickering, a former infantry Marine who was diagnosed as 100 percent disabled from PTSD in 2004.

Only in New Hampshire, where the license plates all say “Live Free or Die,” is the possession of small amounts of marijuana a misdemeanor offense, with violators risking arrest, a court appearance and possible jail time—but those days, too, are ending.

Last week, after numerous failed attempts in earlier legislative sessions, state legislators finally approved a marijuana decriminalization bill—and overwhelmingly.

Lawmakers renew push to end federal ban on marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

A small, bipartisan group of lawmakers is renewing a push at the federal level to legalize marijuana, calling it a criminal justice issue.

The Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act, sponsored by Rep. Thomas Garrett (R-Va.), would lift the nation’s pot restrictions and allow states to decide how to regulate medical and recreational marijuana.

 

Currently, states like Colorado that legalize marijuana do so in violation of federal law. This has created a confusing patchwork of pot laws around the country.
