Why does Oteil claim that he uses cannabis as a "medicine", for "performance anxiety" (I'm not even gonna go there, they could have just said, "Stage fright"), or to be creative? Why not just say, "I like to get stoned." instead of sugar coating it?

Meditation, a good diet, and exercise work 1,000X better for anxiety/panic issues, and are more effective than smoking, vaporizing, or eating cannabis.

a good diet and exercise may be 1000x better for your anxiety/panic issues, but not for someone else... and meditation is subjective. It comes in all forms, and some people are able to reach that state while high on cannabis.. and some might say that a diet and exercise will cause you to be 1000x more stressed haha... its all subjective man!

I don't have issues with anxiety or panic. I mentioned meditaiton and that works better and does more for you than cannabis and other drugs do.

People use any excuse these days to justify smoking pot. You'd think he would outgrow pot by now.

Some pretty closed-minded responses here. To each his own. Whatever gets you through the night. Meditation, exercise, a beer, or a puff of weed. Who are you to judge what others do to relax? You think he would outgrow pot by now??? Get over yourself.

Cannabis is at least as worthwhile and effective an anxiety medicine as Xanax or any number of other drugs prescribed for that purpose.

As for Oteil "growing out of it" I find that amusing. People tend not to "grow out of" things that they enjoy and provide tangible benefits to them.

There are plenty of housewives who aren't "growing out" of their Valium prescription. This is no different, and probably better.

Amen. If pot helps him stay off of anti anxiety meds why would he outgrow it? I'm also surprised by the amount of narrow minded comments regarding marijuana I see on a site dedicated to the music of the ABB. I don't like alcohol or what it does to people but I don't bash people for drinking, different strokes for different folks.

I could not help but register disappointment at the close-mindedness of some on this board. I find this one of the few places left for some civilized discourse by a vast majority of folks not fueled by Fox News, but alas I think the creep is everywhere.

Not really considering this is suppose to be a "clean" band now... I thought Gregg & Butch didn't want any of that stuff around?

Clean meaning Gregg is no longer a slobbering junkie that can't sit up at his keyboard, please do not lump marijuana in the same category as heroin and cocaine.

Couldn't agree more....this thread is hilariously ridiculous. Dude likes to spark it, get off his back! And in terms of it being a clean band....if you think the guys in the Allman Brothers Band aren't toking here and there, you're kidding yourself. C'mon man.

I've heard a couple of people say you're supposed to "outgrow" rock music. The same two people said you're supposed to "outgrow" pot. Both were uptight, middle-aged white guys who were always bitching about something and didn't seem to be particularly happy with their lives.

And I love that first pic of Oteil in the High Times article.

Hey, if hot chocolate yoga, calisthenics or a micro-biotic diet is your thang then go for it. No need to get uptight, sanctimonious or judgmental on how anybody else seeks or finds their own inner peace. To each his/her own. If you don't like the peaches - don't shake the tree!

Peace and love to all!

You honestly don't think that the Allman Brothers smoke pot? Their idea of clean is a lot different from yours, my friend. Gregg said he quit smoking dope during the LCB sessions to improve his voice. I'm sure he started back the day the sessions ended. And he might have been lying about "quitting" anyway. Other than that, I thought it was common knowledge that they all smoke. Why the outrage? Their symbol is a psychedelic mushroom.

For WHO? Can you site formal medical studies or anecdotal case studies to prove your point? You expect us to believe this because you tell us to believe it?

Sure. But next time do the research on your own, if you're capable of doing this.

Here ya go:
http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases/meditation_for_anxiety_a nd_depression

http://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/mindfulness-meditation-may-ease-anxiety- mental-stress-201401086967

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1609875

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23541163

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22805898

http://www.aafp.org/afp/2010/0415/p981.html

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3500142/

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Research_on_meditation

Either way meditation has been proven to be way more effective in the short-term and long-term for panic/anxiety, and general health than relying on drugs like cannabis or even benzos to alleviate anxiety or panic in people who have them.
