Re: “County's pre-dawn surprise: 1A fails

Congrats to all the MMJ Center owners and their families. Now if you can find a way to keep the extremist goons out of politics and from ripping down your ads from Craigs List and other places you might get more business. Keep fighting!

Re: “In sickness and in health

I am a veteran and the founder of Herbal HealthSystems. We are one of the only physician offices in Colorado that will see veterans requesting medical marijuana recommendations for PTSD. PTSD by name is not listed as a qualifying condition for medical marijuana use in the state of Colorado but many of its symptoms certainly are.

Here is a quick and interesting read: By Shirley S. Wang of The Wall Street Journal

Should marijuana be used to treat psychological pain? Some Coloradan military veterans and the medical marijuana advocacy group Sensible Colorado say the answer is yes when it comes to conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder.

Earlier this week, they submitted a petition to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to add PTSD, a potentially debilitating condition characterized by fear and flashbacks, to the list of conditions eligible for medical marijuana use in the state.

As more states legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes, they also have to decide which conditions qualify for its use. So far, only New Mexico specifically allows for marijuana to treat PTSD.

California, the first state to legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes, put out a research report earlier this year about what conditions appear to benefit from its use. The one PTSD-related study cited in the report was in mice, and found no apparent benefit in using cannabis-like compounds to decrease fear behaviors. But other studies, like this one published in the Archives of General Psychiatry in 2009, have shown that some of the active components of cannabis appear to decrease anxiety.

The state public health department has 120 days to decide whether or not to hold a public hearing on the matter, according to Sensible Colorado’s Brian Vicente.

We care and may be able to help.
