    I’m not trying to be cool, but weed for me very helpful. I was sick and
    feeling like death one winter and all these medicines my doctor and mom
    made me take just made me feel like shit. When i smoked a few bowls of
    medical weed i felt soooo much better! I don’t think it cures the flu or
    common cold, but it definitely makes you feel like you’re not dying. The
    downside is if you smoke the weed it wont really cure you, it just makes
    the effects of the sickness ware off, but if you take your medicine after
    smoking that could work better.
