My uncle lives with us and he has been on dagga for most of his life. His attitude is that God put dagga here for it to be smoked! and that it is a natural herb so it cant be bad. We have noticed that he gets aggressive, makes up stories ect and does not realise it. We cant talk to him about it and speaking to a professional is out. We have found his "stash" and would like to know what can we mix with it that is safe to make it taste alwful or just put him off it.

Desperate niece, I don’t know of something that you can mix with it to make him go off it. It is very difficult to make a druggie stop if he doesn’t want to. Maybe the best would be to go straight to the professionals and get there input. Why don’t you try narcotics anonymous at ? Let me know if they couldn’t help and I’ll do my best to try and find out. Good luck.
