    Professirx, are you taking the baclofen as prescribed and directed by your doc? or, have you been inconsistent at all with how and when you take it?

    Oh and also I have known people that have tried the marinol (pill form) and no one liked it , it was like they did not get the same effect from the marinol than a regular joint. And EXPENSIVE as hell..
    But next month when I get a little extra money I am getting a vaporizer and give that a try and can report back on that usage if you need it but I think someone else on the forum has mentioned a vaporiser before.
    But a few of the documentary shows out there have post a very reasonable account as to why some of the so called abuse numbers are high with pot smokers , one thing to think about is the states that do not have med marijuana laws give you the chance to take a coarse to keep it off your licence so everyone takes them so they get listed as HABITUAL and DUI pot users.
    But I will see if I can find the documentaries that acctually show both sides of the story.

    sorry kinda long speach, but so far all the info out there has nothing bad to say about pot. if interested I know of a few good movies to look at to debunk a lot of the myths about pot use..

    on the topic of weed…

    The Union: The Business behind Getting High is a good documentary that touches base on the history of marijuana to present-day. It's one of my favorites.

    I am a member of NORML too already
    Mike, if you do enough research on marijuana medical benifits it is acctually really tough to find shows that other than the illegal growing and trafficking that do not really have bad side affects, it is impossible to overdose on, you do need find what is good for you, me like I have said has been just 1 or 2 hits and I am fine, I move better less pain and other meds are not needed. If they would just let me grow one or two plants a year I would be fine..I would almost totally be off of synthetic meds,,

    Finally, as for weed being addictive, it's simply not possible to get physically addicted to weed. Some people do get mentally addicted to where they'll smoke it all day long, but it's strictly a mental addiction for them because if forced to stop, even big time stoners won't suffer through physical withdrawals like people addicted to narcotic pain killers will.
    It is impossible to find weed here, we can only buy the hasjisj. I can get that easy, and I don't get addicted, never been addicted to anything except my morphin patch that are only 5 microgram so I only get grumpy if I forget to change. I have never been addicted to clonazepam either that people use to get addicted too. I am one of the lucky ones.

    But I have seen people get really crazy from smoking. Sad, but it happens, my ex is still in and out of the psyk hospital because of it, 25 years after. So strange to see that close, it was going slowly and I did not understand it for a while because I didn't think it would happen.

    I smoked when I was young before I got any children but now I am to afraid to loose my children and if I am caught I can never go to US again. You have really strict rules for being able to visit. Even for me from Norway and don't need a real visum. And the few times I have done it after, I get terrible stone, LOL, I can't do a thing.
