I am presribed 1200mg of lithium daily for bi-polar disorder, as well as other mental problems. Can using cannabis or any other drug do extra damage to my body or mental state, if I'm taking lithium at the same time? I have only heard of lithium studies with LSD, but never with cannabis. Can anyone give me an answer?

Hey, take it from me... the weed won't hurt a bit. I am also on lithium for bi-polar and I find cannabis to be just fine with me. In fact I'd recomend it to anyone.
