CANADA: Former soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress in Ontario may soon be able to access medical marijuana with ease.
Marijuana for Trauma Inc., an organization that specializes in helping veterans get medical marijuana, just opened a new facility in Markham, Ont. The organization’s founders, who have opened operations in several other provinces, say there are already 40 veterans in this region looking for assistance.
Former soldier Chris Dupee is one of those veterans. He used to drive 14 hours to New Brunswick to have his prescription for medical marijuana filled and paid for by Veterans Affairs.
