WeedMaps.com is happy to bring you another eye-opening episode of My Life My Medicine. In this special Veterans Day edition we introduce you to Patrick, a hardened United States vet and proud Colorado medical marijuana patient suffering from numerous medical conditions including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). If Patrick can’t influence your opinion about the medical benefits of marijuana than no one can. This is just another perfect example of why we shouldn’t judge others about how they choose to live in this crazy world.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma. Many veterans suffer from it and are prescribed powerful addictive drugs to treat it. Though synthetic pharmacological treatment may work for some, others would like to have the legal right to choose how they treat their conditions. Patrick is the perfect example of someone who has been through it all and is now able cope with the assistance of medical marijuana.

You knew that cannabis was a plant that grows in almost every environment around the world. You may have know that it has been used for making clothes, rope, and helping people medicate for thousands of years. But, did you know medical cannabis is not physically addictive and has few side effects? Do your own research about the medical benefits of marijuana. Ultimately it is up to you to choose what works best.

WeedMaps.com would like to thank all it’s sponsors, clients, and patients for making this series possible.

  1. Very POWERFUL video. As someone who suffers from PTSD after falling out of an Airplane (in the hangar) and subsequently lost my CAREER that I’d worked SO HARD to attain the level I was at, as well as spent many years preparing FOR my Dream Job! In about 3-4 seconds it was ALL taken away from me, through NO FAULT of my own. It’s a SHITTY disease but if Medical Marijuana HELPS these people? Who am I to tell them… “they don’t have the right to live pain free.”? Panic Attacks are NO FUN and God Bless these people if they’ve found something OTHER than the poisons that Big Pharma PUSHES INTO OUT BODIES!
