A ‘tidal wave’… psilocybin…

“Why is it that we go off and we fight these wars for our country,” Keller asked, “and we come back with these wounds, and there’s nothing for us?”

Rep. Tracy Pennycuick, R-Montgomery, asked the same question… “Right now, veterans with PTSD have a mirage of opportunity. Yoga, service dogs, warrior writing, warrior photography,” Pennycuick said. “The bottom line is it’s not working, and we know that because we’re losing 20 veterans a day.” But Pennycuick’s bill has been sitting in the House’s health committee since 2021.] It can’t advance out of committee until the committee’s chairperson, Rep. Kathy Rapp, R-Warren, allows it… [recall] a Senate bill legalizing medical marijuana in PA in 2016. The bill passed the Senate by a vote of 40 to 7, with two senators not voting…. Representative Kathy Rapp said, “I’m still very much opposed to that.”
