Foster care was a joke in my town

My sister and I ended up in foster care after our parents went to prison for robbing a bank.

  • They got 8 years and my sister and I ended up in the care of the state.

My mom and dad weren’t thinking about us when they decided to rob a bank. They were only thinking about themselves. It took me a long time to realize that I carried a lot of anger and frustration toward my mother and my father. It also took thousands of dollars and fees to a therapist. I had a lot of trouble dealing with the trauma that my parents caused, but foster care was a joke too. There was very little supervision and nobody cared if I ran around the town all night causing trouble. I went to the juvenile detention center when I was 17 and spent a year there. I was in and out of the mental health system for a couple of years and then I ended up in a treatment center. One of the psychiatrists recommended using medical marijuana. Medical marijuana had only recently been approved in certain cases of PTSD and the doctor believed that I was a great candidate. I got my medical marijuana card a few months later. At first there were only a few different places where I could buy medical marijuana products, but now there are medical marijuana dispensaries all over the state and in almost every city and town. It’s easy to find medical marijuana deals in a dispensary that is nearby.
