I will create an anthology of poems and a short story on the theme of self-identity in combination with medicinal marijuana. My four poems will identify topics of depression, marijuana, and home. While my creative non-fiction short story will tell a story of a young girl introduced to marijuana as a way of healing and finding home. These pieces are meant to evoke empathy for cardholders and bring awareness to the stigma to cannabis users.
