    My mother was diagnosed with bladder cancer back in April. Long story short, she almost immediately started chemo. She has since had her bladder removed and is doing well. However, the chemo was brutal. After her first round, she had to be hospitalized for dehydration, as she was unable to eat or drink due to severe nausea. Unfortunately, she lives in a state w/o medicinal MJ. So I did what any son worth his salt would do, I flew down and procured some medicine.

    I rendered it into butter and made brownies. My conservative mother, was a bit hesitant at first, but she gave it a go. An hour after eating the brownie, she walked into the kitchen and ate the lunch I had prepared for her. While the food was more or less tasteless to her (a side effect of chemo) she was able to eat and drink w/o nausea. I have always advocated for medicinal MJ, but after that I was absolutely sold. In her words, MJ, "may very well have saved her life". It's taken me some time to even be able to type (let alone say) these words without getting absolutely choked up.

    Anyhow, I came back to my medical MJ friendly state and put my money where my mouth, is and got my card. It has helped my depression and anxiety greatly. I really hope (despite our soon to be fascist president) more states allow medicinal, at the very least. It boggles my mind that there are those who would not allow the sick to gain some relief, while life destroying narcotics are given out like candy.

    Thanks for letting me share.

    I am happy that you have finally been able to come to the truth of cannabis. It is a shame we have to fight not only trough legal obstacles, but the cultural ones we deal with at home are as difficult to deal with. It is hard to move people's minds from associating cannabis with bad but your story is adding to the wonderful fire of the plant.

    I have watched a video on cannabis awareness that I will share below. It is a great piece to share about cannabis entrepreneurs saying what they would say to people who think cannabis is "bad". A great piece to share with others to help inspire people to learn for themselves.
