Marijuana: Good for Mental Diseases

40,000,000 patients say “Yes”

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - marijuana medicine There appears to be a great controversy about whether Marijuana/Cannabis is beneficial for mental disease or if it is really harmful.

One thing I noticed is that if a research physician or group wants to get a huge grant from a federal anti-marijuana agency, is for them to have the word marijuana near the words “drug abuse” or “dangers”. For this, there are hundreds of studies and/or articles.

Marijuana: Safer than Heroin and Opiates

(PORTLAND, OR) - Marijuana saves lives The heroin addictions and deaths have caught the attention of The New York Times and other newspapers on the East Coast.

It is estimated that there are 100,000 heroin addicts in the United States. Most of them are working addicts. Once in a while they get some bad stuff and O.D. and apparently some "off themselves" when they can not get their regular fixes.

Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Stay Open in Marion County Amid Resolution Against Them

Will this anti-dispensary resolution affect the unincorporated areas of Marion County? Most likely.

(SALEM) - Jason Myers The subject in front of the Marion County Commissioners was not about recreational marijuana. They convened to discuss making an official resolution against legal medical marijuana patients having access to medicine via dispensaries.

Knowing full well that no pharmacy can sell cannabis to patients, they want the world to know that they are against dispensaries in this county, regardless of the risk of harm to its citizens.

Medical Marijuana Advocates Meet Wednesday to Keep Dispensaries Open in Salem

Patients and dispensary owners say the Commissioner's meeting was kept very quiet, until now.

PTSD: The Other Ultimate Sacrifices And Marijuana

Is there any limit to what Veterans must endure? Where is the "support for troops" now?

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Dr. Phil Leveque PTSD I have nothing but honor and utmost respect for the 300,000 of my fellow dogfaces in WWII who died so that I could write these stories honoring them.

I was committed to combat late in WWII, but many in my company and my battalion whom I knew well were killed, many just in front of me. It is an eerie feeling just to remember “there but by the grace of God, go I”. This happened too often when I was in a combat zone but for only about three months. I even get those feelings today, 68 years later. This is PTSD.

PTSD: Anxiety, Fear and Anguish

One dictionary said “depression is sadness”, if that is so, PTSD is cancer of the soul.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Suicide sadness “Marijuana works best,” say combat Veterans. I base this statement from my experience with hundreds of Vietnam veterans who discovered that C/MJ worked better than any other medicine given them by the medics for “battle terrors”, and its sequel, PTSD.

What I found was seemingly unlimited advertising for anti-depressant drugs which did not offer signs nor symptoms of depression.
