Obama allows Army Vets to use Cannabis for War Horrors
The U.S. Government has approved research to see if marijuana can be used to treat post traumatic stress to help army vets to recover from the horrors of war.
The move follows the legalisation of it across the States and the near decriminalization of it in many other States.
In Boston, for example, while it remains a crime, people are not required to give their real name when they are found smoking it and fines are minimal.
The Obama decision represents a real change in Government policy and opened the way for the medical marijuana campaign group to get some real quality research at the University of Arizona which aims to quantify what army vets have long claimed that is that Marijuana can help them recover from the horrors of war.
The demand to examine this has been overwhelming for many decades and this nominated Government research represents a huge victory for marijuana campaign groups in the U.S. and across the western world, The L.A. Times report.
"The merits of a rigorous scientific trial have finally trumped politics.
"We never relented. But most other scientists have chosen not to even apply.
The process is so onerous. With the implementation of this study and the data generated, this could lead to other crucial research projects, “ a spokesperson for the University said.
