    I'm glad that dronabinol/marinol artifical marijuana has worked so well for you. The trouble is that it doesn't work that well for everyone. I tried it and I felt like I was going to die. It's massively expensive. It's not something that anyone can just try. Your actually the first person that has had such a positive experience with it that I've come across. More power to you!

    Take care,
