Video | Autistic Activist Speaks Cannabis & Mental Illness to City Council

Eve Hinson speaks to Fresno City Council about the need for safe access to cannabis.

There is a ban on dispensaries and more. The stigma from anti-cannabis folks, omg. And very outdated information being shared by them as well — and “I have compassion” but “do you really believe those people?” attitude.

“I am on cannabis right now. It’s the only way I can be up here and speak and stand.” — Eve Hinson, founder of

I have been a cannabis patient since 10/2010. I’m worthy of safe access to my medication. Damn worthy.

Memory loss, scattered focus, inability to track time, and an ill-known stigmatized neurological disorder, plus PTSD symptoms, have erased or complicated recall of Eve’s first 37 years of life.

Now in her mid-40s, Eve is Autistic AF (born that way) and left with a brain that doesn’t include filters (she says fuck. a lot), likes to glitch and, after the memory wipe, created a new personhood. Eve is different to those who’ve known her from childhood. She is unknown even to herself and seeking to learn about her life from back then, and embracing life now.

This series focuses on self-discovery after the onset of severe mental illness, memory loss and permanent disability. It’s a different life and a worthy life.
