Marj usage
My husband has this also, and was regularly smoking it to relax. He just saw a gastro specialist and was told not to smoke it anymore since it's irritates the abdominal cavity.

marijuana and pancreatitis
Since the evidence that acute pancreatitis can be a side effect of marijuana use (http://pancreas.imedpub.com/acute-pancrea titis-secondary-to-marijuana-consumption.p hp?aid=9028) is mounting, it's probably not the best choice to treat the pain of chronic pancreatitis.
