It's a fine line between being skeptical and being paranoid and biased. 'Big Pharm hates pot, it's stealing billions of $$ from them.'... There's not a shred of evidence for this, and it is based on the faulty assumption that pot is a cure-it-all. It is not. There are more than enough people who are using Big Pharma's meds AND pot. Pot is not a reasonable alternative for medications in most cases, were it only because it is hard to function in daily life while being high/stoned. It is a meaningful alternative to pain killers, yes, but all regular pain killers have expired patents so Big Pharma could care less.
Current meds: clomipramine 225mg, fluvoxamine (Luvox) 50mg, methylphenidate 30-90mg, flupentixol 1mg. PRN: oxazepam 5-20mg or other benzo's.
