Hi my name is Anthony Powell. I am a father of three beautiful kids. I served in the Army, which in result I got PTSD. I also have scoliosis of the spine, which makes it very hard to walk. I also have depression, bipolar, anxiety, and multi personality disorder.
There is only one medicine that has ever helped me with all of these. That would be cannabis. I have stopped taking my prescriptions due to them being very dangerous. They are just another dangerous chemical to stick in your body - just to have it not help with symptoms.
I believe that cannabis should be legal. I mean there are people that are clearly far worse then me and with just a little of this medicine they can go back to living somewhat normal lives.
