A new randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, and conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan, Harvard Medical School and the University of Illinois, have found promising evidence to suggest that cannabis can treat the primary symptoms associated with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
“This study provides the first evidence that pre-extinction administration of THC modulates prefrontal-limbic circuits during fear extinction in humans and prompts future investigation to test if cannabinoid agonists can rescue or correct the impaired behavioral and neural function during extinction recall in patients with PTSD”, says Dr. Christine A. Rabinak, an author of the study who works at the University of Michigan’s Department of Psychiatry.
She continues; “Ultimately, the cannabinoid system may serve as a promising target for innovative intervention strategies (e.g. pharmacological enhancement of exposure-based therapy) in PTSD and other fear learning-related disorders.”

Miley Cyrus knows how to light up a room, and on Sunday the "Wrecking Ball" singer decided to light up in a room — at the MTV European Music Awards in Amsterdam. Right after accepting the best music video award, Cyrus, onstage, pulled out what MTV News reports was a marijuana joint and took a smoke.
"I couldn't fit this award in my bag but I did find this, so thank you guys very much," Cyrus said as she pulled what looked like a joint out of her purse and lit up as fans cheered her.
MTV edited out footage of the star smoking when airing the EMAs in the United States, according to Deadline.
Though the network's website headlined its report "Miley Smokes Weed Onstage," whether what the 20-year-old smoked was actually marijuana has not been confirmed. Cyrus' representatives have not yet responded to requests for comment.
