Experiencing trauma is far from rare.
Around six in every 10 men and five in every 10 women experience at least one trauma during their lives, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The risk that military personnel face of developing post-traumatic stress disorder is well-known.
The worst possible outcome of PTSD, suicide, is growing in frequency among veterans.
The suicide rate among veterans in the U.S. increased by 25.6% from 2005 to 2016, versus 20.6% growth for non-veterans.
Despite the VA’s efforts, the federal department still fails to acknowledge the benefits of cannabis in helping veterans manage PTSD and live better lives.
