PTSD, PTSD, PTSD (continued): The VA Crime Against American VeteransDr. Phil Leveque Salem-News.com
Young widow of a PTSD victim veteran, Penny Coleman, lists the top 10 Reasons Why The U.S. Military Should (Officially) Use Pot.
(MOLALLA, Ore.) - I believe I have had thousands of veterans and civilians who have read and/or responded to my articles on this subject. I am possibly obsessive-compulsive about it because I have it myself, have been mistreated for it by the VA, and I have successfully treated about 1000 veterans and others for the problem with cannabis/marijuana.
I do spend much of my time on my computer searching for new revelations about this subject. My outstanding feeling about this is that not only the VA but civilian doctors are also mistreating PTSD patients by denying them medication which really works while the standard potpourri not only doesn’t work but the adverse side effects are worse than the symptoms of PTSD.
One of my recent finds on this subject was an article by a young widow of a PTSD victim veteran who committed suicide after being totally mistreated by the VA.
Her name is Penny Coleman and she wrote: 10 Reasons Why The U.S. Military Should (Officially) Use Pot. You can find it by searching that! She has written her 10 reasons. If necessary I will make comments:
I very highly recommend that anyone interested in PTSD therapy read the above original. You might also search PTSD Leveque.
