Lifestyle Tuesday: The Effects of Smoking Marijuana


Hi, welcome to my blog. I particularly like this section because it is a chance to touch on issues that matter. I know not anybody my age that does not smoke something.

The movement #MeToo has seen so many women come out and it is clear just how many women have suffered in silence. Continue reading “Lifestyle Tuesday; #MeToo-My Escape Story”
