  • “People have been using cannabis as a sleep aid for decades.” Um. Try thousands of years man. People who seem to think weed was discovered in the 60’s both annoy and amuse me. lol

  • You know what is weird though… the main argument against medical marijuana is that it can make you addicted. After thinking for about two seconds you realise that drugs that contain opiates and other addictive chemicals are fully legal and even promoted. Where is the logic?

  • i have night terrors. reefer stops them. without reefer i would have killed myself years ago. i dont like smoking weed. but i dont want to kill myself either

  • I honestly think it depends on the person and their cannabinoids. Also depends on, are you a stoner, a smoker/patient, or are you a complete newbie. I’ve smoked weed since freshmen year of high school on and off, both heavily and sparingly, and throughout that time, weed became a complete stimulant to keep me awake, and also a sleep aid. It’s also both completely screwed my memory in some moments, and made me remember clearer during a test. Clearly there needs to be more research. Can we please have marijuana taken from the schedule 1 list? Along with Psilocybin.
