Politico (https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/10/12/donald-trump-anxiety-disorder-pscyhologists-221305): “During normal times, therapists say, their sessions deal with familiar themes: relationships, self-esteem, everyday coping. Current events don’t usually invade. But numerous counselors said Trump and his convulsive effect on America’s national conversation is giving politics a prominence on the psychologist’s couch not seen since the months after 9/11—another moment in which events were frightening in a way that had widespread emotional consequences.”

“Empirical data bolsters the anecdotal reports from practitioners. The American Psychiatric Association in a May survey found that (https://www.psychiatry.org/newsroom/news-releases/americans-say-they-are-more-anxious-than-a-year-ago-baby-boomers-report-greatest-increase-in-anxiety) 39% of people said their anxiety level had risen over the previous year—and 56 percent were either ‘extremely anxious’ or ‘somewhat anxious’ about the impact of politics on daily life. A 2017 study found (https://www.apa.org/news/press/releases/2017/11/lowest-point.aspx) two-thirds of Americans’ see the nation’s future as a ‘very or somewhat significant source of stress.'”

Could I use this to obtain a medical marijuana card?

Move to MA, where 'recreational' pot is legal (well, it soon will be legal, once the regulatory red tape is cut). :)

Of Course...
Anxiety is real no matter the cause. That you can barely control the primal urge to jump up and scream whenever you see an orange person should do it.

Alaska is ready for you now Paul. We have two weed stores in our small town. ��

Legalization of recreational marijuana use is on the ballot here in Michigan next month.
