My name is Thomas Steele and I am a veteran and a cannabis patient. I served our nation in two wars, Operations Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom. As a result of my service in Iraq, I was diagnosed in 2010 with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I was later determined by the Veterans Administration to have a 100% service connected disability. My story is not unique. There are many citizens of the Commonwealth who struggle with conditions for which cannabis has provided relief.
