Please DONATE to this cause!
A national mental health crises exists among veterans. On average, 22 Veterans commit suicide every day according to a 2012 report from the Veterans Health Administration. PTSD is the leading cause of suicidal tendencies and cannabinoid therapy is emerging as an effective medical counter measure to alleviate the symptoms of this post-combat mental illness as well as other issues such as chronic pain.
This experience will be recorded and shared as a documentary so that others may share in the experience and learn, along with these combat veterans, how cannabis therapy alleviates the mental illness symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) caused by exposure to military combat service among other uses.
Project 22 is tax deductible when donations are submitted through NORML Foundation.
