My brother has been living with us ever since getting a medical discharge from the Navy. He’s got some PTSD and he also messed up his knee really bad. We’ve been trying to get him the help he needs but he doesn’t seem very interested. It doesn’t help that the VA Doesn’t really seem to care. But recently, my brother seems to be taking a turn for the better. He asked me to go with him to a legal cannabis dispensary just outside of town. At first, I was really hesitant. I know that marijuana is legal here but still don’t like it much. However, I’m willing to try anything to make my brother feel better so I agreed to drive him. I have to say, I was really impressed with the appearance of the cannabis dispensary. I was picturing some ghetto looking place. But instead, it was laid out almost like a kitchen store. It was very clean and tidy looking but not cramped or crowded. The dispensary employees were really helpful too. My brother seemed to know what he wanted but I guess the employees could tell, just by looking at him, what my brother really needed. They asked a few probing questions and I was surprised to see my brother open up a bit about his mental and physical health. The cannabis store employees recommended a slightly different kind of marijuana for my brother to use. They explained why it was better for his condition. He decided to go ahead and try their recommendation. That was three days ago. My brother seems to be making a turn for the better since then. He doesn’t seem so closed off to his family.
