120 Reasons: Cyndi

Cyndi.jpeg

I have worked in addictions for 10 years and I have lived experience (opioids) many years ago. Since I became “clean” I have increased pain and health issues. I believe many medications prescribed are more harmful & addictive than cannabis. Cannabis, if decriminalised, has the potential to improve the quality of many lives physically & psychologically.
