I smoke marijuana because of medicinal reasons. Before I started I wouldn’t be able to fall asleep until 4, 5, 6, or even 7 in the morning. No matter what I tried, tea, herbal medicine, prescribed drugs, meditation, better diet, yoga, I couldn’t sleep. I also felt incredibly anxious all day, every day when I was outside of my apartment to the point where I didn’t want to go sit in a lecture hall. I also suffered from bouts of depression. I started smoking marijuana on a regular basis about 6 months ago. I only smoke a small bowl at night before bed. I don’t use it every night, but I do use it most nights. It relaxes me for at least 24 hours and makes me able to sleep by 12 am. It also alleviates that chronic migraines that I get 2-3 times per week. It works so much better than tylenol or any migraine medicines I’ve tried, and its not going to damage my liver. And it sucks because I feel weird admitting it. I feel weird smoking around my boyfriend who I know doesn’t care as long as I’m getting a full nights sleep. I feel weird about admitting it because theres this stupid stigma around marijuana because its a drug. So is clonazepam and that makes me feel weird. Marijuana just makes me feel relaxed. The stigma needs to go because marijauana is scientifically proven to help so many illnesses, both physical and mental.stop the stigma against weed guys.
