July 16, 2015 - Many military veterans are upset after the Colorado Board of Health failed to approve Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, as a condition for medical marijuana.
“I’m angry, I’m upset and I’m confused,” said U.S. Army veteran Rusty Guenard who expressed his disbelief after Wednesday’s vote.
Board members voted 6-2 against adding PTSD to the medical conditions approved for medical marijuana treatment.
After two hours of often times emotional public testimony, the vote was announced and shouts of outrage filled a packed house at the Colorado Board of Health.
“You’re a bunch of liars and you all gotta sleep with yourselves!” said one medical marijuana supporter.
“You should all be tried for treason!” said another.
If it would have been approved, Colorado would have been the tenth state to include PTSD in its medical marijuana program. read more>>>
