Attitudes to Mental Health and weed in the UK vs US:
I live in the UK and have been getting 'some' help with my depression and related mental health issues since a breakdown around 18 months - 2 years ago. Every time I go to my see my case worker she brings up my cannabis use which Iadmit is habitual yet I also feel necessary for my sanity and it helps with pain management too IMHO.
Anyway I would like to hear from professionals/other sufferers across the world who might be using this forum for their insight and input. I hear many users with similar issues to me in legalised states in the US and Canada saying they are prescribed cannabis as part of their treatment however my experience form this side of the pond from health professionals and the NHS is a predisposition to the negative mental health implications of using weed etc. I know the Illegal strands available in the UK might be the reason for confusion over the topic as they are super strong but what is the counter argument if there is one?
Any comment welcome, Thanks
