Totally insane

Fake news marketing that says cannabis can treat PTSD or do anything except worsen it are just plain wrong. Please don’t fall for stoned delusions or outright lies–that’s cannabis talking. On the other hand, if you wish to be mentally ill or lose your family and other relationships smoke pot. You’ll get there sooner or later.—MR

Marijuana Is Not the Solution for PTSD — Evidence shows it does not treat PTSD in the long-term and may worsen symptoms

A growing number of states have identified post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as an approved condition for medical marijuana. According to Colorado’s Medical Marijuana Registry, there are 70,533 patients as of February 2023 with an active medical marijuana registration in the state, and 10,734 of them indicate PTSD as the reason they are using medical marijuana. This is despite the lack of any high-quality, randomized, controlled studies proving that marijuana helps PTSD in the long-term. Because of this lack of evidence, the American Psychiatric Association adopted a policy in 2019 opposed to using medical cannabis treatment for PTSD.
