Maine Approves Medical Marijuana For Veterans With PTSD

NOV 13, 2013 – We have been honoring veterans all this week since Monday was Veterans Day, and one way we can "support the troops" is to support legal medical marijuana in your state for one possible treatment for veterans with PTSD. There have been many studies showing medical marijuana can be used as a treatment in a wide variety of health issues, and PTSD is one of them. Dr. Sue Sisley in a YouTube video by MAPS below explains the evidence showing medical marijuana can be beneficial in treating PTSD. One organization, Veterans for Medical Cannabis Access, is working hard at getting veterans access to medical marijuana.

Earlier this year, Maine's state government approved PTSD to be on the list of conditions patients can get medical marijuana prescriptions for and Governor Paul LePage quietly signed it into law. In an article on CannabisNews.org, retired Marine Corps Sgt. Ryan Begin, who lost part of his arm in an IED explosion and suffers from PTSD, talks about using medical marijuana to treat his pain and PTSD saying, "It balances me. Instead of being on a roller coaster, you're more even keeled. You don't get too far up, and you don't get too far down." Maine joins California, Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, and New Mexico that allow vets to use medical marijuana to treat their PTSD, which can consist of flashbacks and anxiety attacks.  JTMP urges our supporters to contact your state and local officials, and tell them you support the troops, and you support medical marijuana for use in treatment of PTSD by veterans.  (photo credit: ODea/CC)

Our Vets Need More Than a Magnetic Yellow Ribbon On The Car

NOV 11, 2013 – Hate the war, love the soldier. Happy Veterans Day to all the vets out there. We must remember to support the vets once they get back. Many suffer from injuries both physical and mental from the horrors of war. One place we can all help is donating to the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps out vets with devastating injuries; which happen more these days with better and quicker battlefield medical care. To help out, check out their website at WoundedWarriorProject.org. It would be nice of these politicians that supposedly "support the troops" would shift funding from drones into taking care of our vets. (photo credit: US Archives)

David Rovics Pens “Government Shutdown”; Asks “Why Don’t We Shut Down The Military Too?!”

OCT 9, 2013 – One of JTMP's favorite activist musicians is David Rovics, who is a huge part of Occupy DC, and he has penned another great activist song about the Teabaggers shutting down the government. It's called "Government Shutdown", and it points out the total hypocrisy of how the Teabaggers want to shutdown parts of the government, and decrease spending…but of course we won't touch the corporate welfare subsidies or cut military spending one thin dime. He asks the great question. "Why don't we shut down the military too?" Check out David's new song in his YouTube video below.
