As a cancer survivor, marijuana has helped me through chemotherapy. During that time, I was in fear of imprisonment and losing custody of my son. Going through treatment in order to live and take care of him (as a single mother) was my priority but the cloud of possibly going to prison for possession added to the stress of my recovery. Change the classification of the drug so that patients don’t have to worry about imprisonment and focus on their wellness. By the way, as for recreational use, it’s a lot safer than alcohol.
