Peter (Tosh), I’m with ya, dude. Just in case you don’t know what I’m talking about (in which case, you been living under a rock?)
I’ve mentioned before how thanks to cannabis, I’ve been able to stop taking prescription medication at least 95% of the time. I make no secret of this, even though I live in a state that may not love my admission. I don’t care. I’ve had seizures from medications (neurological medications treatment for migraine headaches) and terrible side effects. I’ve had blackouts and I even had to deal with Child Protective Services in Chicago (the investigator told me it was one of the most baseless claims he had ever investigated in over 20 years. Guess who turned me in? My sperm donor, the gambling and alcohol addict). I went to NA (Narcotics Anonymous) TWICE. I said this person turned me into CPS, Do I have a problem? This is what I take, this is why, and this is when. I don’t call my doctor and ask for extra medication. I don’t “lose” medication, but I’m still considered a drug seeker.
Well, people are taking to twitter in DROVES with the #growuporshutup and #startmakingsense. I added #WakeUpAmerica and #legalizeandregulate to my own twitter posts @AnnaLevensonPsy (if you want to see). I have talked about my Doctoral Dissertation ad nauseam, but my Master level Thesis was titled Adults Perceptions of Children and Adolescent Use of Medical Cannabis for ADHD, autism, seizure disorder, etc. If you are interested, you can find it published online here. It was one of the first of its kind and I’m very proud and honored to be part of this pioneering research. But I digress….
My 11-year-old angel has ADHD. Apparently, this means he cannot have a say about legalization unless he’s over 30. If you’re curious, go to twitter and read more about this ridiculous news!
Until then, I’m honoring my ADHD baby, and his siblings (ages 22 and 20), who aren’t allowed to have an opinion.
