I became close to my friend Angel Pittman one summer, where I discovered she was battling ovarian cyst cancer. After her surgery to remove all of the cysts, she was told that it would come back and the doctors prescribed her a lot of medicine that she had to take. She hated taking her meds because it would make her feel hazy and she would find herself running into the bathroom to vomit up all of the expensive medications she took. She resorted to deal with the pain and taking excess prescribed drugs by smoking marijuana. From that first smoke, she was in love. She preferred to smoke marijuana than to taking her prescribed drugs.
Angel told me buying marijuana was cheaper than paying her medical bills for the drugs she had to take. Smoking made her feel happier, making her laugh at the simple things and it also made her eat more than she did instead of vomiting her food back up on the bathroom floor. On top of going in and out of the hospital in the summer of 2013, she recovered from one of her cyst surgeries to go back to school for her senior year. I followed her life and spent time with her, where she taught me a lot about her philosophy on marijuana and discovered the small issues in her life she was struggling with from paying off financial bills to focusing on finishing school in time with her peers.
