US Army Vet Robert Door suffers from PTSD and uses cannabis to treat it. Door became tired of treating his disorder in the shadows like many other people with conditions and illnesses helped by using cannabis. Robert Door decided to follow in the footsteps of Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr. and others who have used civil disobedience to challenge unjust laws in the United States. Door called the police on himself, turned himself in and was charged with “manufacturing marijuana” for growing cannabis in his home to treat his medical disorder. He is currently awaiting trial in North Carolina.
