One Year On Medical Marijuana

Today marks twelve months since my first legal toke (as well as a year and a day since my first post on /r/trees). Status:

  • Depression: gone
  • Arthritis/Body aches: gone
  • High blood pressure: gone
  • Anxiety/panic attacks: gone
  • Snapping at people for no damn reason: gone

Side effects noted: happier in general, high sometimes, feel younger almost all the time.

TL;DR: highly recommended.

Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better. is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others. Old Hippie teaches about safe use of cannabis edibles, Canna Caps, vaporizers, dosing, and even microdosing.


Does the same thing for me.
It’s like I’m fond of saying: “All Marijuana is medical.”
