Stop Booze, Start Weed????
Dr. Arthur Trotzky Says...
The problem is not blood pressure and marijuana. Your doctor suggested exercise and diet which is always good for overall health, emotionally and physically. Marijuana initially increases heartbeat and. apparently. does lower blood pressure but I hear you saying that you are having trouble stopping the alcohol and are looking for another mood altering substance. I don't know how much alcohol you have been using so it is hard to know how much of a problem exists.
You say you don't want to use medicines and yet also ask if Marijuana is a medicine. You need to ask yourself what you really want: to control your blood pressure or to feel the effects of mood altering chemicals like booze and weed. For the blood pressure, don't "try to make the changes" the doctor suggested. Make the changes" for your health.
As for the chemical search, you might want to talk to a counselor and understand that better and make effective changes to improve your feelings and lifestyle
