We need your help.
Herald-Tribune reporter Billy Cox and I are starting a long term investigative series that will examine the benefits of marijuana as a possible treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), as well as the political and legal ramifications therein.
Billy will report the series. I’m the editor. Billy’s my teammate who’s covered veterans’ issues for decades.
Part of the series will examine the quandary facing the Veterans Administration; Marijuana has proven beneficial for some veterans, yet it is still illegal — a Schedule I narcotic — so VA doctors cannot prescribe it to their patients.
If you have been diagnosed with PTSD and have tried marijuana for relief of the symptoms — whether it was effective or not — we would like to interview you for the series.
If you do not want your name used, we simply won’t use it. Anonymity is guaranteed. You have my word on this.
Please contact either me or Billy.

Thanks in advance for your consideration of this matter.
