Hmmm... Well, I'm only stating the well-known fact that ibogaine 
doesn't seem to affect marijuana like it does heroin, cocaine, speed, 
cigarettes, etc. I'm not going to get didactic here about 
neuro-mechanism. The point is that the nMDA antagonism of the 
cannabidiol cancels out the build-up of tolerance to THC. Very 
important for MMJ patients. And this Morgenthau staffer doesn''t get 
it. You should hear what they did t o this patient!

O well.
