Well....... I'm still sitting on the fence with the whole pot this has been one heck of a fun thread to read, I am trying to catch up in here just a little bit..........
I very, very, very rarely drink alcohol.....but at the moment I have two amaretto 'n Sweets in me, and I must say, if pot feels like this........I might just roll me-self a fat one.....LOL!

Life has been much too stressful and I've decided it's time to seriously unwind from stuff........
So.........blow some of that funny smoke in my direction and we'll see what happens to the old Doe, Razz

LOL ..... It really is an odd thing, how I can be so extremely 'Earthy' and strongly urge people to become more one with the Earth and all it's Natural Healthy Healing powers, we truly live in a Garden of Eden of Riches, that we continually pollute and abuse in so many I preach about healthy living and highly recommend the the use and value of Natural Healing Herbs and treatments over many of the dangerous chemical man-made toxic and controversial and dangerous things many Doctors prescribe for us.............yet...........that illegal aspect is always the biggest thing getting in my way, I am quite strict about such things and well known for that......but it does conflict with my own knowing and discovery of the enormous Healing Value the Herb does indeed I am strongly FOR the Legalization of it,...this I now stand very firm on.
Like anything, there is using and abusing..........but Legal, I am now firmly convinced, it simply must be made, in every State.
If that happens,........I will be one of the first to likely put up a Greenhouse here on the property, but until then....I sure am a tough cookie to budge, lol.

I am also now convinced, that it would be quite helpful for some of my own ailments, and in small usage, would likely greatly improve my quality of life in numerous ways......not as a way to "mask' issues, problems or situations........but as a medicinal much needed Gift of Nature.

If I was in an area where it was legal..........I MIGHT go ahead and give it a try, in fact, I now believe I would want to give it an experimental trial for a month or so, to analyze what, if any, help it might be for me in my own individual situations.

Making pot "legal" is to permit the state to move in on the drug dealers. Great! Something similar happened a number of years back when the states moved in on local bookies with lotteries and casinos.  But, legalization is only a half measure. What good is legal pot if an ounce for medical use costs between $150 and $300, as in Colorado, and more for recreational use.

The states will never permit private production of pot because, like alcohol and tobacco, pot is a revenue gold mine. Sure, I agree it is necessary to start somewhere, such as legalization; but the long term solution would be to remove all restrictions on the production and distribution of this plant completely.

On a positive note, I have a nice window facing south and someday I hope to replace the coleus with a little cannabis. For the present, it's just a pipe dream.

I like your subtle reference to "Pipe" dream. Is it Freudian or Shakespearean I wonder.

Thu Jan 02, 2014 7:10 pm

i am a product of the 60's......a we bit of wake and bake helps me in the oddest actually gives me energy, helps my mood and does in fact help me with GI issues. And oh curbs my appetite.

Wed Jul 23, 2014 2:28 pm

hey moonshine,

yes i agree with everything you said except the appetite. quite the opposite effect on me. pot really helped with everything associated with my 'new little friend' but especially with a fairly painful adhesion. fortunately i live where it's 'legal' and i do have a prescription for medical weed. google 'dutch seeds' and see what pops up. free seeds. but i'm sure you could find them or weed closer to home. good luck.

Used it about a year ago, I had put thirty two years of employment with the state and was randomly drug tested every six months before I retired. Going through the side effects of septic shock I thought, what can I loose? Well I tried it, my appitite came back and all I wanted to do was just eat and laugh. It was great and I hope Florida will one day have this tiny little herb legal.

should be able to smoke, and call a friend, chat like normal people, we are all adults, no big deal really.

we are all so detached, disconnected from each other in this digital world. All this algorithms are not real, we need one of our five senses to feel real, and typing ain't one of them.

Topic now just being discussed by Pollies in New South Wales. I say bring it on. Would getting the munchies lead to increased output ?

What about the CBD oil (I think that's what it's called). I go to pain management every 3 months because besides the ileostomy, and the recently removed kidney cancer, I have my second parastomal hernia in less than a year, I've had spine surgery with ongoing back pain, I suffer anxiety, depression, tachycardia, COPD, and am blind in my left eye from AMD. I'm on more pills than my 86 year old father! I figure the oil can't hurt. But when I asked my pain management dr, he said it would show up on my urine test, which would then make my contract void, and then I wouldn't be able to get the pain meds for my back. Oh, I forgot to add, I have arthritis in both feet in the toes, and have metal rods in the right big toe too.

Hi there. I used to be stationed at Ft. Hood. I am from Texarkana, but moved to Maine (less I will say I miss walking down Guadalupe and 6th Streets. Austin is a lovely place. I heard it has really grown.

I am using CBD oil.  I no longer have to take sleep meds.  It doesn't have THC in it but I may check into some with THC hoping it will help with my disc pain from my replacement surgery.
