This is such a long post. I got to page three, and decided to post my comments...sorry, I promise to mark and read the rest later on.
In Canada that medical MJ is sold under the brand name of Cesamet. It is prescribed as you know for Cancer paitents, and those who manage Chronic pain.
My Dr prescribe some for me to try for some pain I was managing at the time. The only pain pills I take is Aleve (Naproxen).
My experience with this drug, Cesamet, is that it slowed my mind down, and it interfered with my work performance. I really need to think quickly to make it in my job. That is why I stopped taking it.
If you don't need to work for a living, and you can vege all day in front of the television, then this may be the drug for you.
