    Weed can make you think about shit too much. Alcohol is much better for killing the pain. :shots:

    Go over to the Venice beach area to one of the dispensaries, say you suffer from migraines, they'll write you a script and sell you what you need.

    Never mind, you didn't approve me on your twitter account, go to Compton look for a large black guy on a street corner wearing red or blue and loudly say "Hey my nigga, I want some fucking weed, now!"

    it depends on the person. it is fantastic for some, but actually increases anxiety in others. start slow with some mellow Indica strain. i find that ingesting it to be much more relaxing and less intense.

    Weed smokers will tell you yes because their uneducated know it alls. I tried it for anxitey but it makes it worse. Weed raises blood pressure just like cigs. For depression, try walking everyday and force yourself out of the house. It's better to try that before using meds ur whole life

    Alcohol is the worst to use with depression, so I'd say try the weed. I've never used it so I have no frame of reference.

    I'm in a MMJ state and have a card. For me, it doesn't help at all. I tried to go off my depression meds. I'm back on them. Agree on the very short term help effects though. Nice!!

    If you have issues with your weight, cannabis will make you more depressed unless you can control the munchies. I can't. Gaining weight tends to make a not-hot 50 year old female more depressed. :dontknow:

    Ha I've smoked weed all my life and I've never had to buy off a nigga. Got 50 clones in dixie cups right now actually, but im in canada though so its pretty much legal here. Cali weed sounds good but I think those dispensaries are expensive as fuck. What's an oz worth in where you guys are?

    I personally use a cocktail of Welbutrin and lots of weed for my depression. Pussy usually helps too.
    Sorry you are depressed. Get some exercise, walk around the block, ride a bike, something to get outside a moving.
    When I'm having a really bad episode I will meticulously clean 1 room of the house. Keeping my mind occupied on something solid for a while then a hot shower a fat joint and reading Garrypuppet posts on Dawg's and I am as good as new.

    Take it easy, it will pass.

    My kid had a guy come up to him when he was there saying that same thing. They have Dr's there to write the scripts? I figured that was a rip off if you were not a resident?

    GP, you need a nice sativa for elevating your mood. The dispensary staff can point you to the right strain for you!:weeed:
