Matt Flowers
“My name is Matt Flowers. I am a survivor of child abuse, sexual abuse by a family member (at a very young age), and neglect. I was born in Iowa, but moved to Arkansas at 9 years old, in 1992. About 1997 or 1998, I discovered cannabis for the first time. I realized that I was finally able to be calm after years of being prescribed different types of medicines for ADHD that did not work. I was finally able to feel normal. Since cannabis was not yet legal, I struggled through using different narcotics, psychotropic medicines, and prescriptions for my various health issues. This led to suicide attempts throughout my life, including one that led me to being hospitalized. About the same time, cannabis was coming up for a legalization vote in Arkansas. My wife and I decided to explore the use of cannabis once again as part of my medical regime. Of course, that made a big difference.
In the past couple years, I have opened up to my wife and we discovered together that cannabis helps my pain and makes me a better father and husband. Creating art became an outlet for my mental health therapy, especially since I struggle with reading and writing, so journaling was not helpful for me. After a few months, I discovered that painting pieces that feature cannabis are the ones that I enjoy creating the most.”
