What To Do? Taking Action

Many of us have heard about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in one form or another. Either through direct contact with friends and family members, or through national media reports of veterans gone out of control. Regardless of the source, the fact is that PTSD is a chronic medical condition that is about to become an even larger national health issue as more and more of our veterans return from war with this debilitating disease. Learn more about PTSD <

Fortunately, there is something that the People of the State of Oregon can do to improve the treatment options that are available to our stricken veterans and others who suffer this condition. A new bill, SB 281, was recently introduced into the Senate, which would add PTSD as a qualifying medical condition under Oregon’s Medical Marijuana Program, the OMMP. Such an addition would make it possible for physicians to Qualify PTSD patients for the Program and allow them to use Cannabis free of fear from State and Local institutions.

Bill allowing medical marijuana for PTSD advances to Senate floor | A bill that would allow people with post-traumatic stress disorder to get medical marijuana is now headed to the Senate floor without any changes. The Senate Judiciary Committee moved Senate Bill 281 to the Senate floor this morning on a 3-2 vote.

In Oregon, medical marijuana is currently allowed for patients with certain debilitating medical conditions such as cancer, glaucoma, Alzheimer's disease, HIV and AIDS. The bill would add PTSD - a type of anxiety disorder that occurs in people who have seen or experienced a traumatic event -- to that list.

There were a number of amendments to the bill including one that would require medical marijuana users to renew their registry identification card after 60 days instead of annually. Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Floyd Prozanski, D-Eugene, said that he decided to leave the bill unchanged because he thought the amendments were not "necessary or appropriate" and could "do more harm than good."

Two Republicans - Sen. Jeff Kruse, R-Roseburg and Sen. Betsy Close, R-Albany - voted against advancing the bill. Close testified against the bill in a public hearing held last week, arguing that marijuana had long-term health effects that damage the body and brain.

Supporters of the bill, which included veterans, argued that marijuana helped them wean off of pharmaceutical drugs and helps with symptoms of the disorder. Marijuana is still illegal under federal law and classified as a Schedule I controlled substance, meaning there is no accepted medical use of the drug. >> Read more >>

Treating PTSD with Medical Marijuana Could Curb Veteran Suicides by John J. Walters | Mar. 22, 2013 >

When T.J. Thompson returned from serving in Iraq, the Veterans Administration put him on Lorazepam a high-potency, short-acting drug used to fight anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and aggression. It didn't work. Thompson's anxiety worsened until it almost killed him. In Thompson's own words: I took 28 [pills] and blacked out one night. I also drank an 18 pack of beer in that same night. I declared that I would never take nor have that medication in my house again.

His brush with death is, tragically, more common than you might think. U.S. military veterans are committing suicide at increasing rates - averaging 22 per day. That's 20 percent higher than in 2007. >> Read more >>

Marijuana PTSD Bill Clears Senate Health Committee, Sen. Chip Shields spearheaded the vote on an un-amended bill authorizing doctors to prescribe marijuana for post-traumatic stress disorder, which now is headed to the Senate Judiciary Committee By: Christopher David Gray

March 1, 2013 -- The Senate Health Committee voted 4-1 Thursday to give approval to Senate Bill 281 - < read text >, which would expand the medical marijuana program to include post-traumatic stress disorder. The committee referred the bill to the Senate President, Peter Courtney, who's expected to pass it along to the Senate Judiciary Committee for a hearing.

"That's fantastic news," said Jerry Wade, a veteran and member of the Stormy Ray Cardholders Foundation, an information and advocacy group for medical marijuana patients based in Silverton. "We've been trying to have PTSD added for many, many years," Wade told The Lund Report after the vote. "The medical evidence is finally catching up."

At the first public hearing in early February, the Health Committee heard from several experts - << Read more >> - from around the country as well as a packed room of supporters, including disabled veterans, who traveled from across Oregon. No one testified in opposition. On Thursday, Sen. Jeff Kruse, R-Roseburg voted against the bill after his request that it be a part of a larger evaluation of the medical marijuana program was denied.

"If we're going to treat marijuana as a medicine. … I think there's some therapeutic value in having the patient check in with the doctor," Kruse said. A marijuana card is currently good for one year after a doctor's visit. Sen. Elizabeth Steiner Hayward, D-Beaverton agreed, and said that while patients with blood pressure medicine may only see a doctor once a year, no other controlled substance is prescribed for longer than three months.

"I don't think the evidence is compelling one way or another about PTSD, but I'm not compelled to think that marijuana should be illegal," said Steiner Hayward, a medical doctor. "If we're treating it like medicine, we should treat it like a medicine and we should have ongoing medical care." But Sen. Chip Shields, D-Portland, quashed that discussion and successfully pushed for the bill to be passed along with a do-pass recommendation.

"I think the proponents of this bill came forward with a very narrow bill related to one particular diagnosis," Shields said. "I think that if we want to open the can of worms of whether or not medical marijuana is a good thing or a bad thing I think the voters have told us clearly where they are." Shields added that if Kruse and Steiner Hayward wanted to re-evaluate the program, they should drop a separate bill and not tie up the PTSD expansion with something that would be more comprehensive and time-consuming.

Steiner Hayward voted for the bill, saying she understood Shields' point about the narrowness of the bill but told Kruse she was interested in working with him to draft a separate bill overhauling the program if he was so inclined. Kruse also sits on the Judiciary Committee, where he will have a chance to vote on SB 281 once again. Read more >>

Oregon bill would allow medical marijuana for PTSD - Written by JONATHAN J. COOPER Associated Press

SALEM, Ore. (AP) - When the Legislature convenes next week, a Senate committee will hear public testimony on a proposal to allow people with post-traumatic stress disorder to get medical marijuana cards. Proponents say the drug could help veterans with PTSD manage their symptoms. They say some people with PTSD already have medical marijuana cards due to other medical conditions.

Oregon law allows people with specific medical conditions to apply for a medical marijuana card, including Alzheimer's, cancer, glaucoma and AIDS. The bill would add PTSD to the list of conditions that qualify.

Medical marijuana advocates rally in support of veterans | SALEM, OR (KPTV) - Medical marijuana advocates in Oregon are voicing their support for a Senate bill that would add post-traumatic stress disorder to the list of qualifying conditions allowed by the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act. Advocacy groups met at the Oregon State Capitol Building on Thursday in support of the new bill. Currently, veterans who suffer from PTSD cannot acquire the medicine through the program for the disorder alone. Oregon's marijuana laws do, however, allow for patients to acquire the drug for pain caused by the PTSD. - Read more >>

PTSD may join Oregon medical marijuana list | At the first public hearing of Senate Bill 281, military veterans, medical professionals and others testified that marijuana can help alleviate some of the symptoms of PTSD: extreme anxiety, recurring nightmares, sleeping difficulties and suicidal tendencies. In many cases, they said, marijuana is much more effective than anti-depressants and other more traditional medications prescribed for PTSD. - Read more >>

TALKING POINTS: What is PTS(d)? How does Cannabis help?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTS(d)) is a psychiatric illness that can occur following a traumatic event in which there was threat of injury or death to you or someone else. Post-traumatic stress disorder can develop after someone experiences or witnesses an event that causes intense fear, helplessness or horror. (PTS(d)) may occur soon after a major trauma, or can be delayed for more than six months after the event. When it occurs soon after the trauma it usually resolves after three months, but some people experience a longer-term form of the condition, which can last for many years. PTS(d) can occur at any age and can follow a natural disaster such as flood or fire, or events such as war or imprisonment, assault, domestic abuse, or rape.

Many people who are involved in traumatic events have a brief period of difficulty adjusting and coping, after which they improve and get better. In some cases, though, the symptoms can get worse or last for months or years. Symptoms can sometimes interfere with normal functioning, sleeping, and interpersonal relationships. This is often when the diagnosis of PTSD is made.


“One often intractable problem for which cannabis provides relief is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTS(d)). I have more than 100 patients with PTS(d). Among those reporting that cannabis alleviates their PTS(d) symptoms are veterans of the war in Vietnam, the first Gulf War, and the current occupation of Iraq. Similar benefit is reported by victims of family violence, rape and other traumatic events, and children raised in dysfunctional families.” -- David Bearman, MD; from PTS(d) and Cannabis: A Clinician Ponders Mechanism of Action.


Conventional treatment for PTSD includes psychotherapy, learning coping skills, and family counseling. Medications such as anti-depressants, mood stabilizers, sleep aids, and anti-anxiety medicines are often prescribed. Individual psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, and Group Therapy are among the non-medical treatments that have been tried with limited success. Anti-depressants, sedatives, and anti-psychotic medications have also been employed with limited benefit and serious side effects. Currently the U.S. FDA has approved two anti-depressants for the treatment of PTSD.

These are Zoloft and Paxil, both of which have limited efficacy and produce remission in only about one-quarter of patients. Such medications have also been found to double the risk of suicidal thinking and suicidal attempts in patients 24 years or less, which pertains to a large percentage of our returning young veterans. Clearly, safer and more effective treatments are needed. PTSD not only results in an array of debilitating symptoms, but it also causes specific changes to certain areas of the brain that are responsible for the processing malfunctions that underlie this disease.

For now, PTSD patients that live in states where medical use of cannabis is approved are using it to help decrease the debilitating symptoms of their illness and improve their quality of life. If you or a loved one is suffering from PTSD, you may find relief from the use of medical marijuana. New Mexico, California and Delaware already allow PTSD patients to utilize Medical Cannabis, and it is likely that others will also follow suit as more states recognize the benefit that this herbal botanical substance can bring. But nothing is going to happen unless we make it. Those of us who recognize the benefit of using Cannabis to treat PTSD need to make our voices heard in the Oregon Legislature.

PTSD And Medical Cannabis

Many PTSD sufferers have found good results with medical cannabis use, especially for relief of insomnia and anxiety. Cannabis can give PTSD patients a sense of well being and serenity, and it allows them to continue to function with little to no adverse side effects. PTSD patients often prefer medical cannabis over conventional medications, as it is a single medication that helps with a number of symptoms (as opposed to taking multiple medications for each separate symptom) , and the risk of medication interactions is removed. There are a number of researchers currently exploring the science behind the use of cannabis for treatment of PTSD and the results are promising.

A study from Israel in 2009 found that the cannabinoids (the medicinal compounds in the cannabis plant) prevented a stress response in previously traumatized rats. Another report from Israel in 2011 that PTSD patients using medical cannabis had "significant improvement in quality of life and pain, with some positive changes in severity of PTSD". These researchers, as part of their routine consulting work at MaReNA Diagnostic and Consulting Center in Bat-Yam, Israel, assessed the mental condition of 79 adult PTSD patients who had applied to the Ministry of Health in order to obtain a medical cannabis license. About half of the patients got their licenses and were studied for about two years.

The majority of these patients also used conventional medications. The daily dosage of cannabis was about 2-3 grams per day. The patients reported a discontinuation of or lowering of dosages of pain killers and sedatives. The group of patients that showed improvement were those that also suffered from pain and/or depression. Researchers concluded that "results show good tolerability and other benefits, particularly in the patients with either pain and/or depression comorbidity". (Comorbity is the term used when a patient suffers from more than one condition). These results were presented at the 2011 Cannabinoid Conference in Bonn, Germany.

Many of our patients who suffer from PTSD report that medical marijuana has helped them by lessening anxiety, improving mood, improving sleep, eliminating nightmares and producing an overall improved sense of well-being. Many of these patients had tried and failed other medication treatments.

Why? How Does Medical Cannabis Work for PTSD?

Activation of the primitive mammalian brain, or limbic system, during times of severe stress may play a role in optimizing survival. However, when this center of the brain becomes hyper-active and over-stimulated as a result of misguided neuro-plasticity, direct intervention at the cellular level is required. The key to using Cannabis to treat PTSD lies in the distribution of naturally occurring Cannabinoid receptors in those areas of the brain that cause the symptoms associated with PTSD.

The presence of CB1 receptors in the hippocampus, amygdala, prefrontal cortex and anterior cingulate cortex supports the conclusion that Cannabinoids are involved in regulating anxiety, response to stressful situations, and the extinction of conditioned fear. This conclusion is also supported by pre-clinical research showing that mice without CB1 receptors, or mice whose CB1 receptors have been rendered non-functional by chemical blockade, exhibit increased levels of anxious behavior and loss of the ability to extinguish previously learned fearful behaviors.

Conversely, the stimulation of CB1 receptors in the amygdala of rats has been shown to protect against the effects of stress on fear conditioning and avoidance behavior. Early human studies using synthetic Cannabinoids have also shown that stimulation of the endogenous Cannabinoid system is significantly effective in reducing the occurrence of treatment-resistant nightmares in PTSD patients, along with subjective improvements in sleep time and sleep quality, and a reduction in daytime flashbacks.

These results stand in stark contrast to a recent study sponsored by the Veterans Administration National Center for PTSD, which showed that treatment with a second-generation anti-psychotic medication was ineffective at controlling symptoms in combat related PTSD patients.

I tried to inform the asst that, No, the VA has stopped hassling Vets over MJ - and - still, even if so, it made No sense to add to their misery by denying them this.

f.w.i.w, Folks can try to educate her office - and others of this ilk - on VA stance and it may be of value for Vets to contact and attempt to update them on the reality of what too many Vets are facing today.
