Dear Pothead's girl
Being underweight can be due to your diabetes, sore kidneys can be caused by low grade infection. Loss of short term memory and reduced concentration are common side effects of chronic dagga use. Some ingredients of dagga is used for medicinal purposes and you have to decide whether the positive effects you get is worth the longterm negative side effects.

How can anyone possibly believe cannibas can be good for ANYTHING, never mind diabetes - this is purely to con people into getting hooked on it. Your friend/family member needs to seek immediate medical advice as well as drug rehab treatment before he/she ends up with definite possible kidney failure, not to mention other serious problems. Cannabis is no solution to fixing diabetes and this person might be thinking doing this is making it easier in forgetting you have something like diabetes. But this is definitely not the answer. Diabetes is a very easy to manage condtion if done correctly and taking drugs with a condition such as this is playing with your life.

all this will do is make them more seriously ill and even kill them. Please help this person get the medical help he/she needs as soon as possible.
