SALEM, Ore. — If Oregon lawmakers give it the go ahead, it may soon be legal to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder with medical marijuana.
Next week, when the Oregon State Legislature convenes, lawmakers will hear testimony about PTSD. A state senate committee is looking at a bill that would add the disorder to the list of conditions approved to be treated by medical marijuana.
Proponents are looking for PTSD sufferers from Southern Oregon to share their stories at the public testimony next week.
State public health officials have denied the resquests to add PTSD twice before.
