and making sure all is good, in the neighborhood.
This year’s event is placing special emphasis on cancer and PTSD. Chacha, head nurse, explains more.
“(In the) 2015 High-Fi event we plan on educating how medical marijuana helps with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). After a trauma or life-threatening event, it is common to have reactions such as upsetting memories of the event, increased jumpiness, or trouble sleeping. If these reactions do not go away or if they get worse, you may have Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
This hits close to home, having an uncle who is a helicopter pilot in the army. He uses medicinal marijuana to help with his PTSD. Many of his friends who are in the military also use cannabis to help with symptoms as well.”
Chacha went on to explain her involvement with the HighFi event.
“In 2013, within a matter of months, my step-mom and sister in law were diagnosed with cancer. Not only was this a wake up call, but we were devastated and wanted to do more. My sister in law shared with us how eating edibles helped her sleep at night during her brutal chemotherapy treatments.
This helped form the idea of putting the HighFi event together, and donating portions of the proceeds to cancer charities. I want to positively promote medicinal marijuana and the numerous benefits. It goes without saying, I’m a huge supporter and hope for legalization soon.”
