I would have to defer to IT as the pot is more his area of expertise I just like holiestic remedies and hate our drug laws.
I use pot for medicinal reasons but back in the day I used it for recreational reasons. I have had a constant headache since 7th grade and pot gets rid of the headache. I have been an alcoholic since 22 years old and pot makes me drink less.

I had a battle with a podiatrist at the VA over it....I had it in my ankle....this goofy woman is playing with my foot and tells me I had a broken bone in my foot....I told her "no I do not, it is gout"....She goes all Clara on me and starts telling me I don't know shit, I should watch my language (I said "damned') and get a hearing aid...That's when I told her "to go eff herself and learn to talk clearly"....The woman did talk like she had a mouth full of mush and she had elevator muzak playing in the backround, in her office....She tells me to go up to the VA hospital in Wilkes Barre and get it x-rayed..She would call ahead and tell them I am coming...I go...She never calls ahead...I sit in waiting room for 8 hrs....They take me in...x-ray my foot...I wait another two hours as they develop the x-ray and play a couple hands of skat.... Doctor calls me in his office and says "You got Gout"......I tell him that I take Flourosimide for swelling in my legs and a rare side-effect is gout....He says "No"....I says "Look it up"...he does and says "you right"....that is when they put me on the alipurinal....And it works...so far...
I had a leg rash that would not go away. I went to a hospital ER in Georgia and the first doctor was an asshole who said I have scabies. Apparently a filthy disease but I was clean washed and wore clean clothes. The first doctor told to get over the counter medicine at the drug store. I used that stuff for one month and the rash was still there. I went back to ER and had a different doctor look at it and he said I have follicitis (I can't spell it) which means inflammation of the leg hairs. He wrote a anti-biotic prescription and talked bad about my first doctor. The second doctor got it right and my rash went away. That was where I learned the value of getting a second opinion.

I worked in an inner city major hospital for four years and have more than a few hospital stories. True Story: A young intern was trying to impress a pretty nurse. The intern put the paddles of a heart defib on the opposite sides of his skull pushing the paddle buttons at the same time. I think the guy thought it was uncharged but it was charged and he fell to the floor and almost died. He would have died but he did it in a hospital and they brought him back. Then he got kicked off hospital property never allowed to return.

I had to get zapped a couple times to restore my heart rate....One time they put me to sleep....zapped me and when I woke up....I told a nurse that I was dreaming I was driving my truck....A Kenworth straight job..... and I was on a road and hitting some really hard bumps......She said that was when they were zapping you...

One day I found doctors in the maintenance shop. A guy was standing on a step stool and had his dick in the vise with a doctor using a hack saw and my boss pouring water over it. The guy was a wino and another wino bet him a bottle of wine to put a inside diameter 3/4" nut over it. The wino did it and the end of his dick swelled up to giant size and the nut would not come off. The guy went to ER and then Surgery with the doctors wanting to cut half of his dick off. One doctor said let's try something else and thus the maintenance shop visit. His dick was saved by one quick thinking doctor.

I spilled beer on my keyboard more than once. My X-ray repair boss was pouring cold water over it and it was the maintenance shop's shinning glory. You never see doctors in the maintenance shop and it is BYOB at the annual Christmas Party in the maintenance shop.
