A medicinal and recreational marijuana user talk about their experiences of the drug. Matt is a casual user, he smokes a few joints most days, and other than being a bit forgetful and 'quite lazy', he sees no detrimental effects. He enjoys smoking and has no plans to stop. Sarah is a multiple sclerosis sufferer who says that a life without cannabis is a life full of pain. It is the only drug that eases her condition so she grows it at home.
