At the age of 6-years old I was involved in a severe car accident which resulted in me having a head, skull and brain injury, I was lucky to survive. I am now 20-years old and the effects of my brain injury, and the brain injury itself remain with me and will remain with me throughout the rest of my life. Living with a brain injury gives me anxiety, stress, and the difficulty to communicate with my friends and family the way I want to/should. Cannabis helps me deal with my worst effects of this brain injury. And knowing that people in my country have their lives ruined due to a drug that helps people (myself included) sickens me. The charges of drug related crimes need to be changed immediately, and I, like many people with mental illness, will not stop showing my full support until there is change.
