Minnesotans who use medical pot to treat post-traumatic stress disorder are reporting less anxiety and improvements in mood and sleep, according to a new state health survey.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health on Thursday added anxiety disorders and Tourette’s syndrome to the list of health conditions that qualify for treatment using medical marijuana.

Medical marijuana may have come to the states, but there is no integration with the medical community. Patients get their information from friends and the media, and are left largely at the mercy of marijuana vendors.

“Cannabinoids help the mind with the natural process of forgetting painful memories. This has been extremely positive for those who have experienced traumatic events."

Melissa Vincent credits medical cannabis with allowing her to reconnect with her real self and her family.

In places where it's legal, people are often turning to pot to relieve pain and insomnia, a new study finds.
