|Sgt. Begin suffered badly from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He was haunted by nightmares and flashbacks from his time in Iraq, which led to reckless behavior and bursts of violence against even his loved ones. Ryan was only able to live with his PTSD when he took up medical marijuana. He registered as a patient in his home state of Maine, where medical marijuana is legal. Since then, Ryan says he has stabilized: He finally feels like himself again. Get this message to your representatives in Washington. Legalizing marijuana will save the government millions of dollars in medical costs for veterans if all they need is a permit to grow it. This is yet another reason to legalize medical marijuana. This is what pharmaceutical corporations fear the most - A cheap way to manage pain that will compete with the high-priced truly dangerous drugs they sell.|
