If you suffered from an extremly painful, uncurable disease, would you rather smoke pot, or take pain pills.

One or the other....

  • Smoke Pot for sure. I like in California how you can get lozenges, brownies, cookies so people who need it can actuallly ingest it rather than smoke it. I agree I hate the smell and smoking BUT smoking pot doesn't string you out like pills. I personally know many lives RUINED by pills!

  • Now I'm NOT a pot smoker. I have heard it really helps cancer patients. I would smoke pot, over getting addicted to pain pills.

  • I would smoke weed, its a proven fact that pain pills are far more addicting then pot.

  • Well, I do have an extremely painful health condition and I don't do either. But if I was forced to do one of the other I would go with pills, simply because I don't like me when I smoke Pot... And the pills don't stink.

  • Smoke pot. I watched my DH take the pill for of marijuana (the name of the drug escapes me right now) and it did nothing to help ease his pain or create the intended appetite it was meant to. He was dying of leukemia. He wasn't given an RX for pot at the time, although we had family members offering to get it for him. DH hated weed when he was younger so he always refused, but I would totally have taken them up on their offer. Good people don't deserve that kind of pain.
