    A friend of mine who lives in Utah who was in the Bishopric at the time he was receiving treatment for testicular cancer used marijuana to help him get through the chemo with the knowledge and support of his Stake President.

    it just seems twisted that until recently opiods were never questioned but cannabis was/is still taboo. What were we thinking?

    Here's an example I was thinking about when i wrote the above. Not too long ago a publication catering to the mainstream LDS population would never have published something like this:

    This is how I feel. My wife suffers from anxiety. Ever since it's become legal here in Nevada, I've told her that I'd rather her use marijuana for her anxiety than Xanax.

    Baby steps here. Start with coffee and the WoW. Its a lot healthier than Coke and Dr. Pepper.

    Add this to the Church's recent enthusiastic endorsement for the 'Love Loud' festival and their statement condemning Ayla the Purposeful Wife and her ilk, and a person has to acknowledge that the church is trying to take steps toward being more inclusive.

    I dont understand the Nov 2015 policy and hope that one day its removed or significantly altered, but I do think they are trying. And I think that is a great thing.

    We have a Corgi/Healer with anxiety issues, and once again the State of Utah is stepping in to save us from ourselves.

    My dog is an atheist, if it becomes legal in Utah he can have all the pot he wants.
