Through a collection of profiles, Cannabis Saved My Life explores the human face of the politicized, often stigmatized, topic of medical cannabis. In these pages, you will hear from parents who witnessed miraculous improvements in their epileptic children, veterans for whom cannabis has been the ticket to coping with PTSD, cancer patients with remarkable recovery stories, and many others. The individuals featured in this book are as varied as they come, but they all share something incredible in common: they faced unbearable suffering, and emerged resilient and hopeful with the help of this age-old medicinal plant. Your heart will break for them, your eyes will open because of them, and, ultimately, you will be uplifted and inspired by their stories.

From military veterans and young mothers to a Christian minister and a former probation officer, the 100 Americans profiled in Cannabis Saved My Life have starkly different backgrounds. They span all ages and political persuasions and hail from every corner of the country, some from states where marijuana prohibition is alive and well, and some from greener safer pastures like Oregon and California. What they have in common are powerful and moving stories of unbelievable suffering and courageous resilience. When their own hesitations, social stigmas, the perils of illegality, and the disapproval of Western Medicine, they turned to a controversial but age-old plant. The ways in which this medicine helped them vary as much as their make-ups, but they share the experience of having had their lives become livable once again. For some, this means living life as a criminal or fleeing their home states for one where they can medicate with peace of mind. Your heart will break for them, your eyes will open because of them, and, ultimately, you will be uplifted and inspired by their stories.
