    Cannabis questions?

    To those of you that live in free states and take part in cannabis usage, I have a question. When you smoke, vape, eat, etc. your cannabis does it make you more likely to drink alcohol?

    UL: My DH is a regular consumer of cannabis and his consumption of alcohol has greatly decreased over the years, so I think it does not.

    My DH's doctor prescribed medical marijuana to DH so that he would drink less (substituting one intoxicant for another)

    I rarely indulge because I haven't yet found the right strain--I'm looking for a CBD-dominant one--and I just as rarely drink. I have a half-empty pint my SO brought me two years ago that I have a shot of occasionally, so I would say--for me--no. Also, cannabis no longer stimulates my appetite as it did when I was younger. Win-win.

    No but I'm mostly using for sleep. I generally have a glass of wine with dinner and that would never change. I'm really not a drinker outside of that.

    As Cannabis becomes legal I have considered using it to treat my depression and anxiety.

    I have been depressed since the summer of 1979, and I am tired of it.

    A relative who suffers from depression likes Harlequin and Harley-tsu (vaped), but I don't know if that's for depression or pain.

    Is that now used for depression? I thought it was a depressive itself.

    Reports I hear are that it reduces the use or tendency for alcohol consumption. I was reading the other day that beer analysts have attributed declining sales of a few of the big brands to the legalization of pot. I'm sure there are people with issues that can abuse both equally well.

    Humble opinion, but I think pot's use for any medicinal purposes is overstated. I know of people into their 90's who use it as a sleep aid and for some minor pain relief. And an appetite stimulant. Otherwise I think it is much like Granny's rheumatism medicine from the jug.

    I think it is a mild hallucinogenic.
