Questions about recreational drugs, during first PEP treatment.

Dec 2, 2013

Will marijuana affect the treatment in anyway? I only started 20 hours ago, and if the drug is effecting the treatment it could pass the 72 hour validity. isit safe to use? I know alcohol and other drugs aren't but I only smoke medicinal marijuana with THC strength of 21%-19% for my glaucoma or else I could go blind. Please tell me what you think, thanks.
