Sounds toxic.: Toxic means unsafe, or really unsafe. The intentional habit of inhaling burning organic material, combined with various chemicals used in the growing and manufacturing of that material (regardless of whether it is tobacco, marijuana, or any other plant) is bad for the body. Just think about it. Who would intentionally start something burning and inhale the stuff over and over and over?

Find a betterDr: Hydroxyzine is NOT useful for eczema. It is sedating. It will reduce itch only to the extent that it makes you sleepy and dulls your mind. Do not drive if you take it!!!! We have good treatments for eczema. Antihistamines are not legitimate therapies for eczema.Hydroxyzine is much more dangerous than MJ.
