How very often our governments will tell us cannabis is dangerous, is reflected in their seeming policy - denying it to war veterans - because - "it's dangerous". Somehow figuring with their sober minds, that Iraqi or Afghani invasive combat etc., is less dangerous than a plant, that is effective in pain and PTSD reduction, if not elimination.
Sgt. Joshua Lee and his wife Julia - a counsellor, and mental health therapist in trauma - relay Josh's story of experiencing much anguish from his post-war, 27 different daily medications. This was a result of his time overseas in the military.
