i've smoked a lot of pot.
and, the idea that it would treat depression is retarded.
there's any benefit of drug use on depression, it would be due to the
fact that drug use is often social. so, you get the benefits of social
interaction caught up in taking the drug. and, that's what these people
need - friends, not drugs.
smoking mad amounts of pot
by yourself is going to end with you crying in the corner while you're
trying to masturbate. it's not just wrong; it's flatly moronic.
likewise, longterm chronic marijuana use - of the type associated with "medical" users - is thought to cause psychosis, not treat it.
no scientific excuse for this. and, if your doctor gave you marijuana,
he belongs in jail - he's not a doctor, he's a drug dealer.
