Cannabis. It's all over the news these days. It's hard to ignore, yet for years I was the person who tried to ignore it ... and quite frankly, I was scared of it.
As someone who grew up in a very religious community, I was raised to see it as a "gateway drug" that killed brain cells. So, I stayed away from it all the way through my teenage years, through my 20s, and somehow even into my early 30s. If I'm being totally honest, I was judgmental of anyone who used it. I was one of those people who would think, I know how to deal with my problems and don't have to smoke pot to escape them.
