She added, “[Marijuana is] good for me for that because I have pressure in my eyes. [Marijuana is a] good medicine for a lot of things. It’s expansive. It opens your mind. You’re like… Wow, you’re in awe. You look up into the stars. It makes you wonder. It doesn’t close that down.”

    Hey Roseanne! The other week, I saw an amazing new book on the news that teaches readers how to exercise their eyes so that they will naturally see 20/20 again (read it here: http://WWW.QUANTUMVISIONS.INFO) I do all exercises every day for about 15 minutes and I noticed that I can read and drive without glasses just after 2 weeks… I just took an eye test for my drivers license and passed without a problem. I don’t do all of the exercises but I’m always conscious of ways to practice during my daily routine. It works.
