The Vet, The President and Medical Marijuana

Ret Commander Thomas W. Mundell has been US Army Gunner on Arrow Scout Hunter/Killer Assault Teams serving from Vietnam up through Afghanistan. He has seen and done plenty enough to give him nightmares. His training and internal emotional protections had made him unable to care for others or himself. It was during a bout with his PTSD that a loved one came to him and said, “Tom you are dying, try this”. She gave him a marijuana cigarette to smoke and he finally rediscovered an ability to feel, to care for himself and others. Since that time this soldier who had felt cannabis was nothing more than an illegal drug has spoken to many other veterans and found that they too have found a medical treatment for their PTSD more effective than any of the pharmaceuticals they had been prescribed for their condition. Commander Mundell has a new mission.

Ret Commander Thomas W. Mundell spoke before a Committee of the Missouri House of Representatives earlier this year, telling them that veterans need cannabis to help treat the effects of PTSD. Host Jessica Thomas will talk with Thomas about his meetings with President Obama and Congress in his campaign to help his fellow veterans obtain cannabis for their medical needs. Then Amber Langston, of Show Me Cannabis will also be in to give us updates on the efforts to legalize Cannabis for medical, recreational and commercial use in Missouri. They will be joined by Eapan Thampy of American’s For Forfeiture Reform.
