Drugs you take effect your liver.  if you have Hepatitis C then you should make some life changes.  Like not  putting things in your body that aren't
good for health.

There are lots of pros and cons about medical marijuana.  Are you planning are treating your Hepatitis C?  Like I said before...drugs effect your liver.

I do not know about meth, you can always google "Meth and HCV" or Meth and liver disease. I am not interested enough in the subject to look it up for you.
Marijuana used in a vaporizer or as an edible, *might* be okay, but as long as you have the virus attacking your liver, you really ought to consider treating for HCV.
I am a strong proponent of medical marijuana to get through treatment. It is likely easier on your liver than OTC pain relievers and for me helped with anxiety and insomnia.

  Alcohol is specifically horrible, for Hep C, and so is Tylenol and even too much Ibuprofen.  Most drugs are processed through the liver.  
   There are actually at least 50 home-made "recipes" for meth, and shooting it  is dangerous, it could be anything.  
   I think if I were you, I would quit the meth first, and you could use marajuana as a substitute,if it helps your depression :)
