Marijuana May Hold Promise As Treatment For PTSD
So the title says it all. It’s like standing on an island and declaring there is water on every side. It’s like discovering rain is wet and falls from the sky. Fire burns. I could go on for hours. Yes it does. As several friends of mine who returned from their Dutch/French Indo China senior class trips discovered, great weed and fine hashish helped quell the mess going on in the boxes in their heads that occasionally popped open and they had trouble closing. The overwhelming drug of choice of the VA back then was Thorazine, a marvelous anti psychotic slate cleaning mind numbing dose of emptiness. Just drop a few and shuffle off to oblivion. Pot helped, and allowed many that I personally knew to figure out and get over the mess they came back with. Me and a few of my friends held onto our buddy one night as he flashed back to a locked down firebase, He and his boys were shelled 24/7 for a few weeks. We smoked almost daily, and he stopped taking that damn Thorazine and got better. In 1970. So excuse my sarcasm. Pardon my attitude. And don’t Bogart that joint my friend, pass it over to me
45 fucking years later………”Hey, Bobby? I think this plant could help people!”
Wow. Science Marches On.
