Weed and ADD: It is not helpful to smoke marijuana if you have add. It doesn't help you focus and slowly degrades the neurons (cells) in your brain which will make the add worse. Long term users of marijuana have significant decreases in brain function. If you need help with attention there are better medications then marijuana. Please talk to your doctor.
