What is your story?

Perhaps you or someone you know uses marijuana to relax after a hard day at work or while socializing with friends, just as others have a glass of wine or a cocktail. Or perhaps you're not a user, but have seen the hazards of alcohol and believe we would be better off as a society if people simply had the legal option to use marijuana instead of alcohol. Whatever your reason is for supporting marijuana policy reform, please share it with your family and friends!

Here is a sample of testimonials that women around the country have shared with us.

I am 25 years old. I started smoking pot when I was younger. I used to hide out in the back yard or take a drive to the park when I needed to de-stress. I have dealt with extreme stress since I was in elementary school, which caused me to get stomach ulcers. I have also battled insomnia since I was a about 4 years old and began getting migraine-like headaches when I was 19 due to a neck injury. I was not able to smoke regularly until I was 22...

I am a 54 year old woman who weighs 93 lbs. Six years ago I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in my hips and neck. Since then, I have lost 8% of bone mass. As we age we lose bone mass naturally. If you are small, like myself, it happens even faster. To combat this, I must do weight bearing exercises and several miles on a treadmill as much as I can. This MAY help prolong the devastating effects from Osteoporosis. This causes pain. Severe pain, at... Read more.

I am a 42 year old female, mother of two. I have smoked pot since I was 19. I did not smoke for 5 years, while I was either pregnant or nursing my babies. I started smoking again after they were both out of diapers. I need to smoke for anxiety, stress, migraine headaches, and insomnia. I can always fall asleep after smoking. Before me, my father grew and used. I support legalizing marijuana. I believe alcohol is much worse of a drug than pot. I... Read more.
