We need to increase research into psychedelics for veterans with PTSD
Last year marked both the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and the tragic fall of Kabul, Afghanistan; the beginning and end of a 20-year war that will forever define the current generation. We stand here today at an important inflection point as a nation. A generation of men and women who bravely volunteered to protect their beloved nation had a simple expectation that this nation would in turn always protect them. Currently, we are failing these veterans. After 20 years of mental and physical scars, thousands of veterans are forced to travel to other countries to receive life-saving mental health treatments coming in the unexpected form of psychedelics.
