That's a really interesting point MissMac.
I have big problems with it because the 'high' symptoms emulate my panic attack symptoms and that in itself is enough to set me off. The dry mouth, rapid heart rate - no thanks!
I have noticed in some docos that I have watched that it is occasionally prescribed in the US for anxiety and depression, which I think is kind of strange because it is a depressant, but then again, so are benzos.
I'm not anti weed - it's just not for me anymore.
