One reason people persist in using marijuana is because it can help you relax even in extremely stressful situations. Although I support legalizing marijuana, I do realize that I cannot use it for relaxation because it is illegal. So I wrote this article about legal drugs that can help you relax or at least help your muscles to relax. These include chamomile, mint, St. John’s Wort and velarin. It’s always best to check with your doctor before taking herbs or herbal products. For example, if you are allergic to ragweed, avoid chamomile. If you are on antidepressants, avoid St. John’s Wort.
