Medicinal marijuana, cannabis growing industry for veterans

cannabis leaf

SHERWOOD, Ark. ‚Äď From chronic pain to PTSD, veteran health has been a national topic of debate for generations.

But a growing movement has veterans finding relief in plants, switching from pill bottles to buds and easing their pain through cannabis.

According to the National Institutes of Health, veterans are twice as likely as the general population to die from an opioid overdose, a statistic sending many away from pharmacies and into dispensaries in states where medicinal marijuana is legal. 

For Navy veteran Jimmy Carmichael, cannabis came as an option after his second shoulder surgery. The veteran of 8 years had torn both while active duty and was prescribed opioids as a way to cope with the pain.

Colorado ‚ÄĒ A Colorado mother is on a mission to educate the public about the detrimental impacts of THC on brain health in teenagers. Laura Stack's son Johnny took his own life after regularly using high-TCH cannabis products which he'd purchased legally with a med-card. He was 19.

A conversation Laura had with Johnny just prior to his death in November of 2019 still lingers painfully in her memory.

"We were standing in the kitchen getting ready to have dinner and he said, 'I just want you to know you were right.' He said you told me that marijuana would hurt my brain and it has ruined my mind and my life," she said.

Three days later, sheriff's deputies woke her and her husband in the middle of the night to say that Johnny was dead.
