Every other month i suffer from constipation. Every other month I smoke pot and have no problems. I have to go one month on and one month off Cranberry juice because it cleanses my system to dump a clean urine specimen. Is it the Cranberry Juice which I buy the Light brand(low in sugar) and I dilute it because even the light juice is too sweet for me. Sometimes I'll go 4 days without a Bowel movement.

I take a very small dose of MSIR, a total of 30 mg a day and even the doctor says that is not enough to cause constipation. Anyone have any ideas?
