Preventative education and critical information as to the harms and dangers of Marijuana and THC
How and why did this happen? What did we miss?
Since losing our son, Randy, and having so many questions initially left unanswered, we went searching. We searched all he had left us personally in his photos, journals, photographs, and videos. Then we went searching about the harms of today’s high-potency cannabis products. Everything we have learned, we want to share to help prevent more young people from being misled, experimenting, and hurting themselves and to help both parents and youth know about the dangers of today’s high-potency cannabis products.
In this process, we have created a couple of videos of our son that show what active Cannabis Induced Psychosis and addiction look like. It isn’t always what people imagine. We would have never conceived that our son would have completed suicide as his outcome and that this would be our story. We can’t change our past, but we can help with prevention and create a better future for others.
Our journey in prevention started with becoming certified as a Johnny’s Ambassador with Laura Stack who lost her 19-year-old to suicide and was also in cannabis-induced psychosis. Sadly, Johnny and Randy were both suffering the grips of Cannabis addiction and had similar outcomes, they just had different twists and turns throughout their journeys. Laura brought so much understanding to our situation that we now hope to do the same for others and to help prevent this from happening to anyone at all.
If you are looking to educate a group of adults or youth, we invite you to reach out. We are happy to present scientific-based data and facts that will help both parents and adults to make educated choices about today’s cannabis products.
