No. Brain problems: Just because some states allow use of cannabis, it is not a benign drug. It is psychoactive and could mess with your brain. Do not take any medications, including herbals, over the counter drugs or street drugs without consulting the doctor who prescribed Lamictal. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs.
