I'll keep this post as short as possible. I'd rather promote a back and forth debate than to post a long, detailed post than most of us don't have the patience to read anyway.
I've stopped smoking pot chronically 8 months ago. Before then, I had been smoking habitually for about two years.
Within the last six months, I've been going to a well-recommended psychiatrist for depression at first. Just a last month, we've concluded that I am Bi-Polar I.
In that time period, we've tried Zoloft, Wellbrutin, Klonipin, Ativan, Adderral, and finally... Lithium, all in the efforts to control my depressive state of mind and thinking. I have to say that the merry-go-round of trying different prescription drugs has made me very very frustrated with the whole process.
I had placed my complete trust in the "lawful" system, in that going about treating my disorder in the legal and right way, is the way to go rather than using the "pseudo medicine" the traditional medical community like to demonize as marijuana.
Now, that I've been on Lithium, I feel like ALL my life energy has been totally sucked away from me. I'm more lethargic and apathetic than ever before.
In many MANY ways, I've felt better off using Pot rather than taking all these prescription drugs that are suppose to help me feel better. I take the pills everyday, only to feel semi-worse, better, not really, mixed results. Of course, I now know NOT to abuse the POT either, but if used in regulated amounts, I would bet that my quality of life would vastly improve.
Marijuana is Gods herd put here to make our lives better...no debate.It helped me and thousands of others eat and sleep and relax and even get relief from muscle spasms and nausea and many many other aliments...pot being illegal for use even by a doctor is ludicrous at best,a sin at worst..
