" The ONLY way I was able to make it thru 48 weeks of Tx., was by smoking pot. I vaporized it.
I do NOT think that smoking that little would do as much damage as taking an asprin will.. Good luck! "

" THC (the active ingrediant in pot) needs to be filtered by your liver. I think the actual amount of substance that has to be filtered is minamal. It's toxic foot print is unknown to me. Don't beleive the government, they can't tax pot so their advice\info is skewed! Most likly the toxic level is less then the chemicals in a slice of lunchmeat. (sorry Oscar, your stuff is hard on my liver).
On the other hand, a good bud will help with lack of appetite problems (munchies) and cures nausea. This would be a must when reading "Miss doom and gloom's" posts). HA HA
I am soo.... bad!
At least that is what I heard (wink)!
SSSSSppp.... Woosh....
Have to get back to you, my horseradish and ice cream is melting!

" I would say it's a personal opinion. I know I tried but I was so damned sick it did nothing for me. Totally a waste. I threw up every day no matter what.. Others may have another opinion. It can't do much of any harm to try it. Medical marijuana would be best because we do not know what chemicals are on the stuff grown elsewhere.. That would probably ba a cause for questioning the choice.
