DH is on Marinol (synthetic THC) because his appetite is depressed. Even in our backward state it's perfectly legal, and my sister said it's been around at least since she was in med school in the late 1980s.

We have to be careful with it; DH once wasn't talking sense and I think it was the interaction between an anti-nausea drug he'd taken for the first time, and the Marinol. They recently suggested doubling his dosage of Marinol but that also seems to affect his cognitive function, so we've gone from one 2X/day to one 3X/day.

I have no urge to try MJ again, medicinal or otherwise. It would make me sleepy and create an urge to eat junk food. I don't need either.

I tried Marinol (never MJ) when I was on chemo had was losing weight due to nausea. Had a very strange head rush and uncontrollable shaking reaction for about 10 minutes that scared the crap out of my wife and I so I never tried it again.

I am happy it works for some though.

As long as he's not overdoing it, smoking a little while driving is not a bad thing. Especially if you wait a bit before heading out. Any impairment tends to be countered by decreased aggression and more focus. And anybody who smokes knows that mixing pot with alcohol and then driving is a bad idea.

Sam Adams, i have already read that, as well as every other morsel of 'facts' that i could find. my limits is two beers with dinner. more than that and i know i am impared. I also know how much pot i can smoke and when driving , never more than one hit. and like the article says, i do sit and enjoy the buzz for a bit before driving/riding. When running out of arthrituus medicine 4 years ago, i knew i needed a change. no more medicines, no more doctors.
