Well ever since I've been a child ive been on a few different medications, ritalin being my first, calmax (some powder you mix into a drink), adderal and a few more i cant name.
Besides this though, I have sleeping problems and it always helps me sleep.

I was wondering since california used marijuana to treat a number of cases adhd; if michigan is the same way.
The adderal is terrible though, made me not be able to eat for so long ; and i felt exactly the same.

Michigan does not currently allow for ADHD or any other "mental" disorders.

From the Michigan Dept. of Community Health.

Question: What medical conditions are eligible?
Answer: Patients must suffer from a debilitating medical condition, defined as:
(a) cancer, glaucoma, or positive status for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Crohn's disease, agitation of Alzheimer's disease, or nail patella.
(B) a chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition or its treatment that produces one of more of the following:
(i) cachexia or wasting syndrome;
(ii) severe and chronic pain;
(iii) severe nausea;
(iv) seizures, including but not limited to those caused by epilepsy; or
(v) severe or persistent muscle spasms, including but not limited to, those which are characteristic of multiple sclerosis; or
© any other medical condition or treatment for a medical condition adopted by the department by rule. (NOTE: To date, the department has not added to the list by administrative rule.)

Have you tried Vyvance or Concerta? Marijuana is a depressant, not a stimulant, so it will not help with ADHD.

Wrong on both counts.

From Granny Stormcrow's most excellent list-which does not help you with your Michigan question.:) If you have anorexia secondary to to your current treatment, I'm wondering if MMJ would qualify under the

or its treatment that produces one of more of the following:
(i) cachexia or wasting syndrome;

admittedly that is a stretch. But you would not be getting it directly for the mental disorder, but for the side effects of the treatment of the mental disorder, if that makes any sense..
