Jesse is joined by Dr. Paul Callicoat of Sarcoxie Nursery to talk about marijuana use for veterans.

Dr. Callicoat says medical marijuana is useful for veterans who suffer from PTSD.  THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, is effective at helping veterans suffering from PTSD cope and forget about their traumatic experience.

Medical marijuana has also been used to combat pain and opioid addiction for veterans.  States that have medical marijuana have seen a decrease in opioid use and abuse due to the medical properties of cannabis.

Dr. Paul Callicoat and the Sarcoxie Nursery plan to open up dispensaries around the state with their flagship dispensary opening in Joplin.
