War Without End

William Martin

War Without End.

For many military veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, their only relief comes from a drug that is illegal in Texas: marijuana. William Martin, director of the institute’s Drug Policy Program, writes about the problem in "War Without End," published in the June 2014 issue of Texas Monthly. Download the PDF below to read the story. 

On June 18 at 6 p.m., Martin will participate in a public forum about this story at the Baker Institute. Can marijuana help veterans with PTSD? Should Texas legalize the drug? RSVP by June 13 to attend or click here for more information.  

Martin previously wrote a Texas Monthly cover story that explained why Texas should legalize marijuana. Click here to read "Texas High Ways."
