Absurd: Colorado Rejects PTSD As Qualifying Condition For Medical Marijuana

In another serious disappointment of political action, the acceptance of cannabis as a treatment for PTSD is becoming dire and of paramount importance.

In a very accurate, succinct summary: What?

Similar to the recent news that a bill facilitating medical cannabis research was killed by the House of Republicans, we report an identical reaction upon hearing that Colorado will not recognize PTSD as a qualifying condition for medical marijuana.

The only explanation we can conjure is the infancy of PTSD within the medical field and dearth of research conducted on both the condition and medical marijuana. However, this remains a severe disappointment given the number of cases coming out recently affirming the therapeutic value of cannabis for PTSD sufferers — even saving their life.

From veterans facing years behind bars to losing their life without safe access, acceptance of cannabis as a treatment for PTSD is becoming dire and of paramount importance within the industry.
