    If you have the Vice channel on your cable provider, I highly recommend checking out a show called "Weediquette", and look for the one titled "Stoned Vets". It shows the problem of PTSD, and shows what the results are of veterans who have used marijuana as a way to treat it, as well as shows another veteran who is taking pills from the VA and is scared to try it as a treatment, because it might invalidate his health care with them (he's in a non marijuana state).

    The vets that used marijuana? Marked difference between them and the dude who is getting his medication from the VA, not only in outlook, but physical appearance and health as well.

    Watch that show, and see how much cannabis has helped veterans with PTSD.

    For profit prison stock soared on the news of Trump's win. And in some states we've returned to convict leasing, there's your jobs coming back to america; profiting from bondage once again. Also reduces the number of eligibal voters, and you can enforce the law according to to race, as has always been done. All of that would be appealing to Trump and many of his followers, including Sessions.

    Still, half of the states have legalized medicinal use, 8 states have legalized recreational use. And its turned into big business.

    In U.S., 58% Back Legal Marijuana Use

    Thanks for the post and the article Waltky. It proves what I said about vets when they shift from medicine with the VA to marijuana.

    They are able to greatly reduce the amount of pills they take as well as get a lot healthier.
