HealthWatch: Is Pot More Potent?

In this American newscast Andrea Grubb-Barthwell, the former deputy drug czar, said she herself overcame a marijuana addiction that began when she was 17 years old

Falco said the marijuana controls the spasms and stiffness, NBC5 HealthWatch reporter Nesita Kwan reported on Tuesday. “I wouldn’t be able to stand here this long, normally,” she said. “If you saw me first thing this morning, I was beat, just totally weak, totally spastic and have to sit down.”
Illinois state representative Larry McKeon will propose a bill that protects those who — like Falco — use marijuana for medicinal purposes from arrest and imprisonment, Kwan reported. But the drug that Falco said makes her mobile severely impacted a 23-year-old man, who said he is recovering from his addiction to marijuana. “I’m a fairly social person and I became so anti-social — it was just like, ‘Duh,’ throughout the whole day,” said the man, who did not want to be identified. “I was worthless. The only thing that was fun was going straight from school to my buddy’s house and get high.”
