Finally, he was able to go to the actual medical marijuana dispensary.
After my brother came back from the military, he was suffering with some serious PTSD. He was not himself. I could tell that sounds made him jumpy and little things set him off quickly. I was worried about him, so I suggested that he look into getting a medical marijuana card. I heard that medical marijuana can help those who suffer from PTSD, and we were willing to try anything. However, it was a long process to get my brother the medical marijuana card. First, he had to register for a program through the Medical Marijuana Registry. Then, he had to meet with a physician that could certify that he is actually suffering from PTSD. My brother doesn’t like to talk about his problems, so I know that this step was particularly challenging for him. Once the physician certified his PTSD, my brother then had to pay for the medical marijuana card, which was more expensive than we expected. Finally, he was able to go to the actual medical marijuana dispensary. Ultimately, it was worth jumping through hoops to get the medical marijuana card because it clearly helped my brother with his PTSD. He began sleeping better and relaxing more. I saw his disposition shift, and he began to look more like my brother again. I am happy that I could help him get the help he needs.
