I agree that there are SOME doctors who make it really easy to get the meds. But, anyone who wants these meds should be going to a psychiatrist first, where they really can diagnose you properly.

I didn't say driving while high was okay. Or getting high while taking care of children was okay. I said that some anti anxiety meds can have a similar effect on the body as marijuana. I have done both and it is pretty similar.
I didn't say you said driving while high was ok, that was just my opinion from the OP. I also have done both. And they do not do the same things to your brain. Even each anti-depressant acts on your brain in a slightly different way. That's why some meds work for some people, and not for others. And if you actually have real depression and/or anxiety, the meds won't make you feel "high" but will make you feel normal and able to function.
