Marijuana: Please discuss this with your Physician. If you have PTSD then a Clinical Psychologist could help you with these symptoms and a Psychiatrist could give additional help with medication. After you have had an evaluation of your heart condition and your PTSD and have been treated for these conditions then you could see if you need additional substances and ask your Doctor about marijuana.
