Marijuana: Treating the depression/anxiety with psychotropic medications plus cognitive therapy, is more beneficial in the long-run than self-medicating to treat symptoms. Schedule appointment with mental health professional. U will be glad u did.

Not yet in MA: The laws in some states near you are moving in the direction you'd like, but it's still not legal even in maine where it is close to a pproval of medical marijuana for specific conditions with a prescription. So, do whatever you can to help pass laws in ma or move to one of the few places that are leading the nation on this issue. Good luck!
