    Weed and the Flu

    I know its a weird question but I have been feeling like I have the flu all day and I am bored cause I have been sleeping for over 15 hours now. When I took diversion they told me that weed will help people get alcohol poisining because it stops your body from throwing up the alcohol. Does weed have the same effect on the flu? Anybody know? Or does this seem like a stupid concept?

    i agree with the high being weird, but it is great to know that you can still get high while being sick...cause who can really sleep all day without it?

    Good god what horseshit. You really aren't gullible enough to believe nonsense like that, are you?

    Cannabis is good for what ails you.

    Holy horseshit...what a rush, I just got through taking a vap load to cure what ails me!! I'll tell ya true...Our sacred cannabis has the broadest application when it cames to health. Just be careful not to smoke when you start developing a congested cough and your chest feels heavy...a smoker is more likely to develope bronchitis or pneumonia if smoking isn't curtailed at the onset. I work in the health care industry taking care of sick lungs and you don't even want to experience what pneumonia and the like could bring to your day. When you can't breath well, getting high is no longer your priority!:metal:

    NORML.ORG (if you don't know what they are about don't respond please!)

    http://www.norml.org/pdf_files/NORML...rohibition.pdf

    For example, marijuana alleviates the nausea, vomiting, and the loss of appetite experienced by many AIDS patients without accelerating the rate at which HIV positive individuals develop clinical AIDS or other illnesses.

    http://www.norml.org/index.cfm?Group_ID=4450

    Both the marihuana cigarette and an 8 mg ondansetron pill -- cost to the patient, $30 to $40 -- are effective in most cases for the nausea and vomiting of cancer chemotherapy (although many patients find less than one marihuana cigarette to be more useful, and they often require several ondansetron pills).

    Re: Weed and the Flu

    Marijuana is an anti-nausea drug (prevents you from throwing up). If you drink while you use marijuana, the marijuana overrides your body’s built in safety system to throw-up when you drink too much and you could increase your risk of alcohol poisoning.

    if you can find some information telling me this is all wrong please do i am interested...

    thanks

    Dude...alcohol kills your liver and shortens your life...stay green, your body has receptors for THC, but alcohol was never figured into the blueprint:60: Man, alcohol should have class 2 restrictions and MJ should be readily dispensed in all states legally but still prohibit the operation of heavy machinary, DC 10 or sitting in judgement.

    Meh, I smoke when I'm sick. I don't know, I feel like it helps me recover, and because I have no scientific evidence to back that, it must be a plecebo effect, but hey, if that works then I'm not complaining. I've caught many the cold via shared pipes, never really bothers me. Because it happens so often the colds never last long, pluse it keeps my immune system on it's toes, so I rarely ever get really stick. Been like this for years now, it's great. A little bit of disease from time to time keeps you healthy, hell that's the premise behind innoculations.
