I will not use cannabis (smoking), I have many reasons for it. First off I am a drug expert and know exactly what cannabis does. Second I also have a medical back ground and know how it helps. Third, I came out of the childhood from hell. I was raised by two drunk, drug users and step dad was a dealer. It is hard to describe the life, but I will in a book someday, but needless to say I hate drugs. I am even refusing the pain pills at this point. Medically the harm still out weighs the good, but I will consider cannabis pills soon. We are talking it over. I would get the benefits with out the high. I now that the high actually helps by relaxing you, but I am a control freak. I think it is due to the life I came out of. That is one reason I am soooo happy my liver is healing. Most of my family members where heavy drug users and/or alcoholic. My sister isn't, but she is pre-diabetic. A good liver would be hard to find, lol.
I also have COPD and RSV so smoking anything is out (born with both). My whole family has medical problems. My mother had her first child at 16 and then 6 more in seven years. She did not talk care of herself or eat right. They did not know then. I was the heaviest of the seven children at 5 pounds, my elder brother was the lightest at 1.3 pounds. He had it rough, but made it through. taking care of yourself during pregnancy is so important.
