Control and Tax Cannabis

Barbara Palau-Lipford


"When I was young, I used cannabis just for enjoyment. But I became very ill about 8 years ago, and now I don't really smoke socially. I smoke to ease my pain and to keep food down. I'd rather puff on a joint than kill myself with painkillers. My doctors had me on so many pain pills for a few years, but I was in so much pain, there were never enough. Now I take a few hits during the day and maybe at night and don't have to suffer in pain all the time.
