69. I smoked the other day...
mainly because I was curious if it would really take away the pain that I suffer from due to FM. My back was spasming bad that day and I was with a friend who had some on her. I puffed and I will tell you that it did take the pain away for a while and I felt more relaxed and confident than I ever had in my life. I really am thinking about using MJ to help control my FM and mental disorders.
The MJ didn't have me feeling loopy or tired like the meds that I am currently on which I feel are no longer doing shit for me.

I don't have any sudden urges to try heroin or coke or any of the "hard drugs"

BTW my mom tells me that there was a book called "The Marijuana Papers" that got banned here in the US. Does anyoune know if it and where I can get a copy?
