I have to make a colonoscopy, but to do it with sedative or anesthesia would cost me from 150 to 240 euros. I have hemorrhoids, so doing without any sedative or anesthesia would kill me. But it s too expensive. Do you think I could smoke weed before the appointment to the colonoscopy, for me it s much more cheaper and it seams to be almost the same affect of the sedative wich I would have to have to pay 150 euros.
