Question of the day:

Do you believe it is OK to smoke pot, to help ease severe depression? And let's say that nothing else works- prescription meds, therapy, etc.

I think it works wonderfully for my sister.

For myself- doesn't seem to work. :(

Yes, IMO it's fine because it's basically harmless, but you should be mindful of different strains and their effects on the body. Don't expect a miracle right away.

Yes. An anon said she was suffering from a long-term deep depression, and no meds helped. So she was asking for opinions about smoking pot for depression. Just wondering if it had got heated.

Carry on.

I think pot's ok, period. If it helps your depression, even better. As long as you're still using it responsibly and all that...
