Who’s Justice?

by Brittiany Ralls “What are you in for?” She asked. My cellmate’s name was Megan and she had spent a period of her life in and out of jail. I had never been to jail. So this was very new territory for me. “Possession of weed.” I replied. All she could do was laugh…. Being […]

Found Myself in Texas

by Brittiany Ralls Visiting family and friends in Texas quickly reminds me of the days of the past. At least for a lot of the country at this point. Texas is still one of the few states that does not have a cannabis program in place that allows for a majority of their citizens to […]
