Illinois advocates are pushing to add Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to the conditions eligible for medical marijuana.
Lon Hodge is a Vietnam veteran. He suffers from PTSD and experiences panic attacks and suicidal thoughts. He says marijuana helps him cope with those symptoms.
Illinois currently has a pilot medical marijuana program.
But Hodge can't use pot legally in the state because PTSD is not on the list of illnesses covered under the program.
