Bipolar - fact or fiction?
#22
Hehehe that would've been most likely better.

Anyways, here's a question primarily for Californians and Canucks - does anybody know of (where it is legal) medicinal marijuana being prescribed as a suitable treatment for bipolar disorder?
Main reason I ask is, it's no secret (I don't hide it) that I have had an extensive history of drug abuse in the springtime of  squanderous youth, and while I have never fallen back into hard drug use, or psychedelics, I have once or twice since becoming Catholic (in the early transitional days mainly) slipped up and had a bit of a smoke here and there. The thing I noticed was it tends to ground me, and sort of enforces a balance point between the two poles.
Medicinal marijuana is legal here, but has never been prescribed in the history of our nation. However, it is things like what I have mentioned that raise questions.
I don't miss the old life, and I don't want any association or re-immersion in "pot culture" or other drug using sub-cultural groups.
All I want is some control over this swing/shift nonsense. The few times I have been able to objectively observe, this seemed to work. I functioned perfectly normally within society for many years, in a state of constant marijuana intoxication in my youth, and I believe if it really works it'd much better than any other current alternative for bipolar.

So, anybody know anything about this at all? I am only really interested in hearing about the level of effectiveness &c. as far as morality and legislation go I submit to the authority of Holy Mother Church on the issue, and will not seek out or use any substance without legitimate prescription &c.
Just wanna hear if anybody else finds it to help, in which case I will throw my voice into the alredy very strong lobby going for medicnal usage here in NZ.
