GRANTS PASS, Ore. — A Josephine County woman is using her own experience to help keep people out of jail and away from drug addiction.
Stephanie Parsons of Grants Pass is starting the Web site “LoveToGrow.org” which would teach positive life skills online in the form of games. She says she wants to use the lessons she learned after she was convicted of marijuana possession, and wants to prevent others from making the same mistakes.
Parsons says some people have a hard time accessing rehab or treatment services, and thinks her web site could help.
“I feel there is a huge dollar amount on treatment or bettering yourself or learning life skills, and it costs a lot to go to treatment and stuff like that,” she said.
Parsons is seeking a grant from Josephine County, and says the web site is still under construction.
