    Does marijuana help you?

    Of Course!

    When I was 10, my parents would blow pot smoke in my face - not because it was funny, but to allow me to keep food and water down. You see, doctors said I had a "nervous stomach" (ie. I couldn't hold anything down), and there was nothing we could do - except put me in the hospital, once I was dehydrated and malnourished enough. They decided to try blowing pot smoke in my face, and see if that helped. It did. I was able to hold down food and water, and had no need of hospitalization or medicines (which never worked anyway).
    I continued to smoke off and on throughout my life, and recently quit due to obligations that prohibit smoking pot, until it's legal. At that point, I'll go back to smoking as an occasional stress reliever.
