Debating:The harm(s) attributed to Pharmaceutical v.s. Cannabis treatments of Stress, Anxiety, Depression, OCD, Etc etc...

SSRI's come with a long list of side-effects. The most severe being kidney damage, and severe depression. Although a vast number of people are currently medicated with such drugs.

Do you think doctors that are prescribing their patients SSRI's, should recommend a trial of cannabis? In replacement of pharmaceuticals?

  • Dec 7 2013: I grew, smoked and distributed Marijuana in Hawaii for 12 years and I must say it was probably the single biggest factor keeping me from destroying the planet. Instead, even though at the same time I was fighting the claws of alcoholism, I managed to keep enough sanity together to eventually get help. I stopped all drugs including alcohol over 30 years ago and live a simple life with no drama and will be content to accomplish two things: 1) Return the human race to a plant based diet and 2) Spread a new virus called "If you break it, you fix it"

    I do know a lot about Marijuana and other wonderful plants as well and I believe the sooner we return to plants as our source of food the sooner we will also get our sanity back. Here is a video I made about pharmaceuticals, I called it "Pushers".
