But then you have that as a problem.
I wonder, was it the divorce or the drugs that brought him to God.
My guess is, a bit of both- that's an old story.

his boy has been sitting to close to the curch or someone in it or the other way around?

Angus Jones has apologized to his "Two and a Half Men" colleagues for publicly trashing the hit sitcom, "one of the most significant experiences" in his life.

The 19-year-old has played Jon Cryer's onscreen son Jake Harper but has openly criticized the show, insisting that it's full of "filth."

These are almost direct quotes from the mouth of Rush Limbaugh

This is the typical paranoia and hyperbole that characterize the daily nine hours of right-wing talk radio we get from Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Sussman, etc., along with the additional nonsense that Obama is a foreign-born, radical leftist, socialist, Muslim sympathizer.

The Republican's elected offcials in Washington D.C. haven't got over the butKicking they got in 2012.

Taking it to the limit, GOP, Republican idiots in Washington D.C. have decided to get side tracked and pick on a FEMALE rather than deal with the debt crises.

<quoted text>I'm for it being legal but there is a lot of false information about it. More teens enter treatment each year with marijuana as the main substance that they abused. In 2004, 64% of teens were admitted for treatment for marijuana as their main drug of choice vs. 36% of all other substances including alcohol. Marijuana is addictive, as it meets the criteria for substance dependence
In a study reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, even a moderate dose of marijuana was shown to impair driving performance, since it affects alertness, concentration, perception coordination and reaction time – essential skills required for safe driving. Researchers also found that 17%(1 in 5) of crash victims under the age of 18 tested positive for marijuana.
What did the High times study find?
Researchers have found that heavy marijuana use may be especially problematic during teens’ peak learning years, when the brain is still developing, since smoking pot can impair your ability to concentrate and retain information. This can cause poor academic performance. You might think you’re doing well in school – but you’ll never know if smoking pot is inhibiting your true academic potential. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =IiWpyWsMVPgXX
The main reason that there are so many people in treatment for cannabis is that if caught with a small-medium amount of cannabis, the court will usually offer a diversion program (ie..."treatment"), rather than jail time. Most of these "patients" are not going into treatment voluntarily. Also, the stats for drivers who have THC in their system are somewhat misleading as they show are who has consumed THC in the past 30 days, rather that the past 24-72 hours with other substances such as alcohol, cocaine, and meth.
I'm not saying that cannabis is a cure-all or isn't bad for you, but it is also not the "devil weed" that it was once made out to be.

We live in a strange culture, it seems more appealing to give more attention to a problem than it's solution.
This is regarded as economy.
You might get the impression that we are an inquisitive people.
Well, almost.

By "people" do you mean underage? If made legal like Colorado, there still will be an age limit. Smoking pot while a kid is not a good idea, is it?

Dear Potheads: If weed apparently CURES cancer...?
As a lot of you state (as you're uneducated) why are we still using chemo for cancer? Why not give patients a giant bag of weed and send them on their merry way?
Weed does not cure cancer, it's only lessens the pain!
I'm basically saying stop making up/exaggerating facts about weed to try and get it legal.... The amount of times I see people saying it CURES cancer is unbelievable,
If you want it legal because you like the "high" feeling, then tell the truth, don't make it out to be the cure for the world.
I know it is hard to believe. But if cannabis can be used to ease the pain of chemo and radio therapy, notably the nausea, cannabis, indeed THC seems also to transform many type of cancerous cells into autophagic cells, i.e. eating each other(*). This has been discovered on mice and extended on other mammals and some people have been cured. It looks like the progress are slow due to the fact that cannabis is schedule one, and that's probably the reason chemo and radio continue. I am not sure, nor do I pretend, that THC will replace completely chemo and radio, but given the facts that seems plausible to me. Progress in science are always slow and applications are slower due to conflict of interests, so you imagine how making cannabis schedule one can slow the progress!

While influential in his field, revolutionary in his conceptions and synonymous with genius itself, Albert Einstein had ideas about the responsible use of nuclear power, world government and policy in the Middle East. But to a world that is happy to capitalize on the value of a resource without taking personal responsibility for it's intelligent use, it became necessary for certain people to present themselves in support of their own ambitions- resigned to the opinion,
"Einstein , that's not a very good idea."
I like your question though.

I know it can be helpful for cancer, but not cure it. If u want it legal to get high, then it's okay to say that, but to say all these great things about what it does is bogus.

And as I said before, the fact that THC can help curing cancer was discovered 30 years before in the US.

"Federal researchers implanted several types of cancer, including leukemia and lung cancers, in mice, then treated them with cannabinoids (unique, active components found in marijuana). THC and other cannabinoids shrank tumors and increased the mice's lifespans. Munson, AE et al. Antineoplastic Activity of Cannabinoids. Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Sept. 1975. p. 597-602."

And cannabis has been made schedule one!

If you accept that your government lie to to you, you can expect the worst.
