During a Michigan state Senate hearing discussing medical marijuana, state Senator Rick Jones cut short the words of a military veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

From flashbacks and insomnia to anxiety and depression, veterans are coming home to America in need of help on many levels, and the last thing they need is "chemical" medicine. Though "psych" meds are prescribed almost across the board for "psychological" issues, the psychiatric manual DSM-5 doesn't say a word about nutrition and herbs. It doesn't have a section on Cannabis sativa either. If you actually read the latest psychiatric manual, a.k.a. the psychiatry "Bible," you realize that they have classified EVERY emotion as a disorder, so if a veteran happens to be a little anxious at the doctor while talking about what happened to them and their friends overseas, well, that's grounds for a diagnosis of the symptoms that "appeared at that time" -- and here come some scary drugs and complete lack of nutritional advice from a confused (allopathic) Western Medicine "witch doctor."
