I am not ashamed to admit that I use cannabis, because it changed my life in wonderful ways. As a survivor of childhood abuse and neglect, I have struggled with severe depression for much of my life, only to be joined with suicidal thoughts and self-harm. It wasn’t until after graduating high school that I finally had the courage to seek therapy, but by then I had been diagnosed with PTSD and used conventional antidepressants. I thought I had made the right choice in medicine…until my symptoms became much worse to the point of being hospitalized. I am not ashamed to admit I use cannabis, because no longer am I a slave to the urge to self harm, no longer am I consumed with suicidal thoughts and utter self-hatred. For once I had finally been given the strength to rise above and be at peace with myself. For this reason I hope to someday help heal others with cannabis as I have been healed.
As a Christian I hold dear to the truth that God made everything for His glory, so that the least of all things can testify to His love… and I believe cannabis is no exception.
