so i'm currently watching the news about soldiers and post-traumatic stress disorders. what i would like to know is, does marijuana help soldiers with this problem? replies from service men with this issue would be great, i would just like to hear what you guys think. it could be another reason on the list of thousands for it to be legalized.
