The media reported research into pot as potentially the latest in PTSD treatment. We think it’s not. In an article in The Vancouver Sun “Pot” was promoted as potentially an “innovative” treatment option for veterans and soldiers suffering from PTSD, here’s what Last Door thinks about this.
Thinking back on my life I realize that from an early age I tried hard to feel accepted from my peers but never really felt like I was. I was always drawn to dangerous things and to people who were negative influences on me. I grew up in home where my parents supported me no matter what and gave me everything I could ever ask for and grew up in a nice area. Went to church with my parents every Sunday and participated in sports and activities on the weekend. Yet I still chose to draw completely away from that into this negative lifestyle that seemed so glamorous at the time. The first time I ever tried drugs was at the age of 11 and I don’t think I will never forget that moment all my worries just seemed to wash away. To read more click the above link
