Northwest Cannacast – “Cannabis Helping Vets To Cope ” (S2ep37)

(2018)  Minds are being changed as researchers are talking about how certain strains of cannabis help our veterans deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  But will this go very far in a country that still classifies pot as a Schedule 1 substance?

In this Newsbuds edition of Northwest Cannacast, the panel discusses new findings about vets being treated with cannabis.  We also talk about the likelihood that this or any other cannabis-related treatment will become mainstream anytime soon.  A powerful congressman is pitching legislation to decriminalize cannabis country-wide.  Is this pot’s time?  Or are we there yet?

Northwest Cannacast is “60 Minutes meets Legal Cannabis,” and is a news magazine show designed to promote information, perspective, and understanding.  Enjoy this week’s episode, and be sure to listen for this week’s “CannaRant” feature at the end of the show.
