As two U.S. states have legalized the use of recreational marijuana, one woman, a preacher’s daughter, said in a recent interview that the plant-derived drug is a “gift from God.”
Aimee Curry, a 39-year-old daughter of a minister, swears by marijuana’s ability to heal pain. The woman told CNN in a recent interview that although her father would disagree with her use of the recreational drug, she believes it is a “gift from God” due to its ability to relieve the painful and lasting back spasms she experiences as a result of a 1992 car accident that nearly killed her.
Curry told CNN recently that when she was first presented with marijuana by a friend, she denied it, saying, “I can’t do that, it’s bad,” but she was quickly convinced to take her first puff. Since her first inhale, Curry has become pro-marijuana.
“It states in the Bible not to abuse a drug, it doesn’t say you can’t use it,” Curry told the media outlet. “If you ask me, cannabis is a gift from God.”
