SB 281: Oregon Senator Betsy Close - Prohibitionist Against Helping Soldiers with PTSDOregon NORML

(SALEM) - Two combat veterans told state senators on Wednesday how marijuana has helped them cope with post-traumatic stress disorder and at times helped calmed one soldier's violent urges.
State Senator Betsy Close testified that she is against expanding the medical marijuana program.
"Marijuana does damage the body and especially the brain," she said while citing a 1979 study about the dangerous effects of marijuana. "All drugs have side effects. This drug has documented brain damage and sex damage," Close added.
