Hi, cannabis may just mask your symptoms but will worsen your clinical condition. Weed or cannabis can cause psychosis, anxiety and depression. It can also cause lung, head and neck cancers. It can affect the metabolism of other medications. With these adverse effects why do you continue to abuse recreational drugs. So, please continue with the protocol given by your doctor and good luck with your recovery. Regards.
