Time 4 Hemp

Time 4 Hemp interviews combat veteran Sean Azzariti, the first person to legally purchase recreational marijuana in Colorado. Azzariti describes how marijuana is a “life changer” for managing PTSD symptoms, and why it’s important to create conversations about the widespread issue of PTSD in veterans and others. Azzariti mentions the importance of MAPS’ work, stating, “It’s amazing to see the progress that we’re making with posttraumatic stress disorder outside of the normal pharmaceutical realm that we’re used to getting shoved down our throats.”
