Makes sense to me

Via Drudge (Thanks, David):
Stressed soldiers to be treated with cannabis

Israeli soldiers suffering from combat stress after tours of duty in the Palestinian territories could soon be treated with cannabis to relieve their symptoms, the Ma’ariv daily reported.

The mental health department of the Medical Corps is set to to begin tests in the next few days on volunteers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after reserve duty, the paper said.

A scientist who will help conduct the experiment heads a research team, which discovered that cannabis helped mice that had suffered physical stress and even reduced the risk of stroke.

This could be interesting. Marijuana certainly can reduce stress. I can just imagine the reaction of the U.S. administration to such a suggestion with their troops. Of course, then again, they have no problem giving pilots amphetamines to keep them violently on edge alert.
