Not advised: Mixing pot with your treatment will not give you a good indication of how well suboxone will manage your opiate dependence.

Not a good idea : Patients with addiction problems should avoid any street drugs during treatment for drug addiction. Most Subaxone treatment programs do random drug screening and showing a non prescribed drug may grounds for discharge

No: Adding another chemical to your brain is not safe. Do Not Do This.
