Subject: Cannabis treatment for Bipolar Disorder
Hello Utah lawmakers -
We wanted to share this important new article today about how effective cannabis can be in treating Bipolar Disorder and the financial and social effects of other types of treatment, including Electro-convulsive (or "shock") Therapy (ECT).
If you have ever had a friend or family member with severe psychiatric problems and have been faced with the possibility of enduring ECT as a treatment method, please consider this carefully.
As always, thank you for your time and consideration.
