Was saddened when I heard Heath Ledger had died from what appears to be a drug overdose. This overdose seems to have been fuelled by insomnia and depression. I am an Australian and Heath Ledger was a brilliant, down to earth Australian celebrity.
It turns out that Heath Ledger had prescription and non prescription drugs in his apartment. Also Naomi Campbell’s former assistant said she saw Heath taking cocaine and ecstasy. Taking hard drugs seems to be pretty normal in the celebrity world.
Insomnia is quite common for people, especially those that have intense jobs, working long hours. Deep sleep is vital, but many drugs can be harmful especially when you are sick. Maybe medical marijuana would have been a better option for Heath Ledger.
If you have problems sleeping, do you think it would be best to take medical marijuana, instead of sleeping tablets?

I THINK THE BEST THING THE GOVERNMENT CAN DO IS LEGALIZE MARIJUANA. I HAVE DEGENERATIVE DISK DISEASE AND FIBROMYLGIA AND I DON’T SLEEP AT ALL UNLESS I TAKE A PILL OR TWO. I HAVE USED MARIJUANA FOR MY CONDITIONS AND HAVE BEEN PAIN FREE AND HAD SOME OF THE BEST SLEEP THERE IS. HOW DO I GET A DR. TO GIVE ME A SCRIPT
The TEA form is the best if you are health conscious about your mind & body. Smoking only lasts temporary (1-2 hours). The TEA can give you 6-8 hours of very restful sleep and 24 hours pain relief afterwards. Besides fighting off diseases, cannabis has other uses and I feel healthier. I don’t have allergies any more. I don’t use any more pharmaceutical drugs. I have a healthy lifestyle and even have better sexual experiences with my wife and our relationship has grown to an unprecidented intimate level.
I started using canabis when I herniated 2 lower disks in my back for pain control. I’ve had IDD therapy back treatments from the chiropractor’s office. I haven’t been to a medical doctor in 3 years and am as healthy as can be since the therapy. My mind is sharper than anybody else my age and my body is stronger than ever. I am 40! I feel that God has given me a new chance at life and given me a wonderful drug to help me get through the darkest times of my life.
What bothers me is many bad people in power want to take your rights away by not allowing you to use it. They want to force everybody to use the big pharmaceutical companies’ drugs to keep the tax revenues flowing to the government.
For those of us who use marijuana medicinally this is a no brainer. I have tried both and I’ll take the herb any day over any pill out there. I encourage anyone not to use all that crap like Ambien, Xanax, Valium, etc…unless it is for a short term necessary treatment. I’ve tried all these drugs and after a couple days of being wiped out from them forget it. I can use mj and do anything. Anything at all. I’d like to see what others out there have to say so post…gardengirl
