> My drug of choice for 20 years was 6-8 beers a nite, more on the weekends. i mixed the alchohol with the following drugs which i am still on:
> Prozac 60mg a day
> Risperdol 3mg a day
> Wellbutrin 300mg XL
> Klonopin 1mg 4x a day
> Ativan 1mg as needed.
> i have now been sober for close to six years, thanks to cannabis. have no desire to drink whatsoever, and when i was a drinker i had the worst hangovers. Cannabis relaxes me,i'm still in control, and makes me feel good. I take cannabis in the privacy of my home harming no one. Cannabis has kept me away from alcohol now for six years, and my health has improved tremendously...lost 40 pounds, stopped using nicotine, no hangovers, no apparent side effects. it is a good medicine. Why is such a good medicine illegal and the more destructive one alcohol is legal and it was killing me. cigerettes being legal to are far more dangerous than cannabis.Do you think medical cannabis will ever be legal? i think the US is driving people to drink, as there is no other effective legal alternative. i'm not sure if this message is on the correct board, but cannabis is a beneficial drug, and i feel it should legalized. What do you all think?

I agree, it should be legalized. I too am a recovering alcoholic (2 years). I don't use any illegal drugs now, but i do agree w/you cannibus is much safer than alcohol..alcohol was ruining my health/life also. One drawback is that studies (actually i only read one article on this) show that smoking Marijuana on a daily basis is more dangerous to your health than smoking cigarettes( 1 pack a day). The article said 5 years of heavy daily use of canibus was equally harmful as 20 years of smoking 1 pack of cigarettes a day. I don't know if this is accurate or not, but if it is true it is definitely something to be concerned about. I guess with drugs of any kind there really are "no free Lunches" as my doc always says. If they could put it in a pill form (THC) maybe that would be ideal.
