Port City Daily 6/8/22:

The other reason Fitch sponsored the recreational marijuana bill is because he said there is no evidence it’s harmful. The National Library of Medicine reports marijuana helps with pain management, treatment of diseases, such as epilepsy and multiple sclerosis, and relief from anxiety, stress and depression. 

Fitch pointed to military members as a prime example where the use of cannabis proves beneficial.

“Veterans deserve to have every avenue for treatment that makes sense,” Fitch said. “Someone with post-traumatic stress disorder, certified by the military — marijuana can help. That person, whom we say did so much for our country, can’t get something to relieve themselves.”
