After Robert Head returned home from the military he noticed that his drinking was spiraling out of control. Between the booze and prescription drugs, he was becoming a person he didn’t recognize, and more significantly, didn’t like. After speaking to fellow vets about their experiences with cannabis he decided to try it as medicine. To his surprise and without purposely doing so he started drinking less. And soon he was able to get off the pharmaceuticals. Now he’s putting his efforts behind a project called Operation Trapped that’s shining a light on the veterans who come home from war and are prescribed a cocktail of prescription drugs that dull their senses and take away their sense of purpose.
