United States: Study for Marijuana gets backing for PTSD for Veterans

CTV News article brings us the latest.. 

WASHINGTON — The U.S. government has signed off on a long-delayed study looking at marijuana as a treatment for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, a development that drug researchers are hailing as a major shift in policy.

The Department of Health and Human Services’ decision surprised marijuana advocates who have struggled for decades to secure federal approval for research into the drug’s medical uses.

The proposal from the University of Arizona was long ago cleared by the Food and Drug Administration, but researchers had been unable to purchase marijuana from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The agency’s Mississippi research farm is the only federally-sanctioned source of the drug.

All I can say here folks, is, its nice to know that the American Medical Association is now finally, seeking a re-classification of marijuana, in order to make it easier to research… won’t be long before us up north start to catch wind of this for the troops/vets (hopefully)…

Support Cannabis for the TROOPS and VETS!
