    Atarax
    Vesicare
    Saroten (Elavil)

    CystoProtek & Deser Harest Aloe Vera
    Licorice Root
    Quercetin
    Glucosamine Sulfate
    Mullein
    Slippery Elm
    Probiotics
    Marshamallow Root
    Flax Seed Oil
    Bladder-Q
    Quercetin
    Hyaluronic Acid


    Marijuana wasn't (fortunately or unfortunately) on the list. More than a few seemed to like the CystoProtek & Deser Harest Aloe Vera combo even when taken with Elmiron.
    Yeah, if it's all the same to you I'll stick to my highly trained doctors advice.

    I'm also on Savella and Ambien, both of which I could stop if pot were legally available.

    At least every 6 months I have to get a bladder treatment. Guess what medicine they fill my bladder with? Elmiron. I did at first try alternatives, back when I had no health insurance. Nothing helped. The pain from IC is estimated to be as painful as the final stages of a cancer patient. Now that it is being treated it is mostly bearable. But god forbid a pot smoking hippie like myself have access to safer pain remedies. (I quit pot in 1972, BTW)

    I do know as well that in Colorado legalizing medical pot has created a very successful cottage industry. Yeah, I know, how dare little people rob Big Pharma like that. They should all just quit and go back to welfare and unemployment.

    But that being said, as long as you're not forcing someone to smoke a blunt, I don't care what you do. It's your body, but don't give me some bullshyt ass excuse that you're smoking it for medical reasons. You're smoking it to get high. Pain killers kill the pain, but without the high. No wonder the dope fiends want to smoke dope.

    We have plenty of meds out there that can alleviate pain. Don't give me that ****.
    So what? People get high off of oxys, too. People get high off of a lot of things. It doesn't reduce medical value.

    And what's so wrong with getting high? People have been doing it since the dawn of human civilization. Every time you drink caffeine, you are under the influence of a psychoactive substance. MSG is more harmful than pot. I just don't understand the outrage.

    Wow... You really don't know whit about history do you?

    As a farmer, Washington grew marijuana on his farm and promoted it's growth. (In the 1790s, the crop was grown mainly for its industrial value as hemp and for soil stabilization. It was many years later that the recreational and illegal use of marijuana became popular.)

    See folks, this is why MJ is illegal, it makes your judgement.. go to pot.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I would say that the high from pain killers is much more prevalent than the high from pot.

    Disagree. I see no reason not to let people grow it in private gardens. People can legally make their own liquor, after all.
