CANNAHEALTH The Opioid Epidemic - Page 51

After serving more than 8 years in the United States Coast Guard in charge of life saving operations and law enforcement missions of all kinds including our main objective Drug Operations, I went on to become an outspoken advocate for #OnePlant never knowing just how deep that rabbit hole would go!

For years I suffered through, what our government told me was best for me, the Veterans Affairs (VA) system. I took pill after pill for everything from my chronic back pain to depression, anxiety, Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Post Traumative Stress Disorder (PTSD), inflammation and more. I can proudly say that today I no longer use the VA and I also no longer use any form of pharmaceuticals.

Now I spend numerous hours every day dedicated to educating the social media and real life masses on the many uses and benefits of Cannabis using my educational platform OnePlant. I manage my chronic pains with a good diet, exercise and Cannabis daily. I use a Cannabidiol (CBD) oil that would be considered legal in Georgia (GA) but also Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that I have to obtain illegally under both GA and Federal law.

And even after spending all those years on rough seas and scary and hopeless situations, even after an auto accident in 2001 that broke my back, 3 ribs and my left hand, even after numerous other neck and back injuries both from my service and from life, in my home state of GA I am not considered a patient; I am a criminal!
