This issue of Visions examines the controversial role of cannabis in society, both on its own as a substance and in the broader context of mental health. You will read many different perspectives on cannabis use and supporting research that present a more complex view of cannabis than the black and white extremes. You will hear the experiences of people who have found solace in the healing properties of cannabis, and of those who have found cannabis detrimental to their mental and physical health. This issue of Visions may lead you to question your own attitudes and assumptions, and you'll likely learn something new along the way.
