  1. Marijuana is the only safe & healthy thing to do. Even more than legal prescription pills. The only side effects are happy hungry sleepy(not always in that order tho). It can help with depression, bi polar, insomnia, anxiety & panic attacks, seizures, epilepsy, & many types of physical pain, not to mention the positive feedback on recent studies with types of cancer & leukemia too. & technically marijuana is not a drug..drugs are manmade chemicals, marijuana is a plant. But if some really do consider it a drug..alright, but its not a dangerous one, no one has ever died solely from smoking weed & its not a gateway to shit if you're smart about it. A lot of shit thats legal can be a gateway drug. Alcohol is as bad as crack/cocaine & meth & heroine is, & tobacco/nicotine is bad for health too people die from all that shit in one way or another every day. It really is just a plant yet its still mostly illegal, while shit you CAN die from is still legal..thats fucked up. Personally im not against smoking weed for medical purposes, as long as its not near kids, & the smoker is at least 18 or 21. I hope its legalized soon.

  2. Holy fuck. 55 grams a day??? How is that possible. Dude has got to be perma stoned. Unless he's on a CBD flower

  3. Maybe discuss that Canada has no pharamacare and ppl can’t get their life saving disease. The ms guy at the beginning would be given a drug that costs 80,000 a year !! My uncle has cancer riddlingvhis body and he has to pay cash and wait fo a refund !

  4. 55 grams a day, now that's just abuse. This guy is just being a baby and crying just cause his weed is changing and for ing him to see his drug problem.

  5. I'm battling chronic & terminal illnesses since childhood here in Michigan, and have had total renal failure, PEs, and heart failure, all from the TOXIC DEADLY RX DRUGS! I now cannot handle taking enough Rx meds to treat my symptoms, and even though cannabis is the only thing that treats ALL MY SYMPTOMS (severe full body chronic pain, nervous system seizures, TMJ/severe dental problems, migraines, severe anxiety/depression, severe full body chronic nausea, temp sensitivity & inability to control body temp, etc)
    I am forced to live in $700/mo and HALF of it goes to MMJ. I can barely squeeze in my rent, power, and prepaid phone in the other half. I am not using NEARLY enough cannabis, and am still homebound because I cannot take enough to be functional. I am only able to afford enough to keep me EXISTING, and though I've given up all my dreams & wishes, the ONLY thing that will save me from dying a 3rd time, alone, in my toxic HUD apt, is if I can get someone to help me get a van, bus, or camper, and I can drive myself to a state where I can afford to LIVE for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE! As my life goes, it's a 1 in a million chance I will ever get out of here to experience anything my whole life other than being tortured as a medical guinea pig!

  6. If it helps on your body, well get the weed lol. But i notice is natural and better than other harsh drugs from the government. But remember guys that we live in a society that sell drugs legally and those drugs harm the human body to a point of been addicted. But weed is kinda natural and way better to use if you have a medical issue. I congrat to the people that fight for this plant to be legal for those people that need it. We need to be open mind and let them have it cuz it makes them whole again.

  7. I'm a Canadian patient and if it wasn't for the product for medical I would still be on the high dose of oxy and that crap hurts your stomach

  8. My friend buys medical Marijuana shit from the Toronto dispensary and sells it in peel region

  9. He does not need 55 grams a day. He probably only smokes a fifth of that and sells the rest, he is just mad Canada is getting wiser and cracking down on jerks like him. People who try to take advantage of the system for a quick buck make the rest of the legalization community look bad.

  10. wait did that guy say he was taking 55 grams a day? holy shit, i thought i was being greedy smoking a couple grams to myself!
