Cannabis Can Help Bring Peace

Dear friends, I was asked to give a statement to a newspaper specifically on what I personally thought about "recreational" cannabis. Honestly, as a medical cannabis patient I had hoped no one would ask me! BUT, when they did, I shared what I had learned years ago as a felony probation officer and had followed up with research. The majority of all felonies are committed under the influence of alcohol! Every day, almost 30 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 51 minutes. The number of American troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq between 2001 and 2012 was 6,488. The number of American women who were murdered by current or ex male partners during that time was 11,766. That's nearly double the amount of casualties lost during war. Two-thirds of victims who suffered violence by an intimate (a current or former spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend) reported that alcohol had been a factor. Among spouse victims, 3 out of 4 incidents were reported to have involved an offender who had been drinking. I see cannabis as a society remedy in more ways than I can count. I see cannabis as a path for more peach on earth at a time when it has never needed PEACE more! <3 p="">

Please Help Validate Me

Please validate my feelings,
even if you can't understand them.
Please validate my feelings,
let me know I am not standing all alone.
Please validate some of my many doubts,
even if you can't see or comprehend them.
Please validate my feelings,
let me know you are not judging me unjustly.
Please validate I am alive for a reason,
let me know my burial is not what you preferred.
Please validate my changes,
let me know my changes are real so I don't feel crazy.
Please validate my feelings,
and at least act like you listen to my many concerns.
Please validate my feelings,
and tell me the real truth when I dare to finally ask for others input.
