“One of the benefits of marijuana that I experienced personally was the ability to make you forget. In 1978 I was subjected to an exceedingly trying personal trauma that left me depressed, anxious, suicidal partly, and this was a serious situation because I had three small children and was faced with needing to support… them.” — Caroline, a 72 year old woman who used marijuana in the late 70’s to help with PTSD.
“And thanks to marijuana, I was able to keep my job, care for my children, and bring them up properly. Talking about this problem in my life Page 81 is still difficult for me, but marijuana has made me remain a functional citizen in this society, paying my taxes, doing my duties.”
