Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can i help you?
User :   Hello there, I have a couple questions concerning Medical Marijuana in the state of michigan
User :   I currently have been under the care of a psychiatrist treating me for anxiety/depression and panic disorder since 2005, although have seen numerous doctors regarding this issue since my teens.
Doctor :  
User :   I am currently 23, and have tried numerous medications for my condition and have found that xanax was the only pharmaceutical drug I have noticed any relief from my anxiety but I am worried about its dependence issue and how it will effect my liver long-term.
Doctor :  
drugs are not the only option
Doctor :   yoga and breathing have you tried
User :   I do notice much relief when self-medicating with marijuana, as it wasn't legalized until recently in my state for medicinal purposes. The charges to even speak with a doctor and have it reviewed is fairly expensive(as well as my current prescription.) I was curious if medical marijuana might be a viable option?
