SO has asthma and he takes meds as needed for it (last night- ER, steroids).
SOs friend is a die-hard marijuana advocate and smokes legally here in Michigan. He finds himself downing pharmaceuticals (I agree with most of what he says) and saying weed is the end -all for every disease (I don't believe that).
This friend is yelling at SO on the phone for taking the drugs the doc gave him in ER and said he should've just smoked pot instead of seeing a doctor. Ludicrous.
Yes, some drugs can be replaced by weed if you choose that route. Asthma? Maybe, but weed is also not the cure for EVERYTHING.
