funny.
didn't I just point out that is what the problem is on capitol hill?
politicians being brain dead and all.
the fact that you didn't catch on to what I said maybe indicative of your situation too.
they are brain dead because they are for continuing prohibition.

your drug war was lost years ago.

as marijuana is more popular than ever.

each year more and more small farms pop up.

there is about to be a HUGE WAVE of recreation legalization....

state by state.

there is little the government can do at this point, except legalize it. any other course would be a huge waste.

especially when we have politicians screaming and kicking about the debt.

sounds like an addict making the case for legalizing the stuff.
far from it....

there are users at all levels.

the good thing is, is that more people are eating it and vaporizing it, as opposed to JUST smoking it.

you get more CBD's(cannabidoil) when you ingest it orally.

smoking somewhat kills that effect.

AND..there are lots of people making the case for lifting prohibition....other than pot heads.

people like ron paul and gary johnson, who just want the failed war on drugs to end.....

there are third graders who know more about the world, because they are brave enough to use "google"
It appears that you have nothing to say hiding behind high times. or norml.com here is what the Medical Doctors are saying: The body makes its own cannabis-like chemicals, called endocannabinoids.(doesn't mean putting pot in your body helps) Cannabis has both physical and behavioural effects. People using cannabis can experience feelings of euphoria (well-being), hunger, sleepiness, problems with motor coordination, and sometimes feelings of anxiety and paranoia. Chemicals in the cannabis plant attach to proteins in the brain called CB1 receptors. CB1 receptors are located on cells in the brain called neurons. Normal brain functions, like memory and decision-making, rely on these neurons communicating with each other, and CB1 receptors help to ‘fine tune’ this communication. So if cannabis compounds attach to these CB1 receptors, they can disrupt the normal regulation of communication in the brain.

We know that people who use cannabis, particularly earlier in life, are at greater risk of developing illnesses like schizophrenia, and of an earlier onset of these illnesses. We also see that in the brains of people with schizophrenia, there are changes in the molecules of the endocannabinoid system.

drug addicts will lie to get their hit. they will even kill for it if is necessary to do so.
yeah. I have this feeling that the stuff will be legalized in many states.
all I can say is... get ready for the consequences. brain dead decisions made by brain dead people will increase.
I agree that just like gay marriage it will be legal in the near future. Invest in Drug & Alcohol Treatment centers. Anderson seems like proof it's not good for some people. I know others that use it, maybe a lot less often that seem to be just fine.

I knew i could make you Recant, with just some simple reading.

now you know THERE is a endocannabanoid system...

before you just denying its existance, and claiming I read it in "high times"

what other plant has its own sytem in the human body??

ricardo, Ive been smoking for 33 years, and I still blow EVERY one of your sill uneducated arguements out of the water....

for the simple reason that I happen to know more about the subject.

putting CBD's into your body most certainly "helps"

if you define "help" as curing a terminal disease.

so you JUST found out about neurons??

you must have skipped some serious schooling.

I was claiming you read the crap you were posting about it from high times. You are not able to read it and understand what it means. It doesn't mean by smoking pot that you are helping. hemp and marijuana are not the same: Hemp, on the other hand, is typically high in CBD and low in THC, as it is bred to maximize its fiber, seeds and oil, the items for which it is most commonly used. What your medical pot head doc prescribed is marijuana, not the oil from hemp. You are too stoned to understand it. Hemp is healthy: Hemp seeds pack a powerful nutritional punch. Two tablespoons of shelled hemp seeds contain about 11 grams of protein and 2 grams of unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. The pot u are smoking is not healthy.

You can buy Hemp oil at Walmart, walgreens. It's already legal. Hemp and smoking pot are not the same.

I think it is you that needs a bit of study...

the OILs that they sell at dispensaries that are high in CBD come from HIGH CBD strains of cannabis sative, not its cousin hemp.

hemp has cbds......but not as many as cannabis sative

you need basic edcuation on these classifications.....that is why i recommended jack herer's book.

people USE the cannabis they grow to make these products...

if what you said was true, there would NOT be a huge issue on the medical side with regards to research....

the largest stumbling block to more medical research(which you hate) is the fact that it is still prohibited at the federal level, and classified as "non-medical" when clearly that is JUST PLAIN WRONG!!

ps: on the other hand I agree with you(AGAIN) that hemp treats are tasty and nuitritious.

but in the end.....you should listen to people who actaully GO to clubs regularly....instead of just making it up yourself as you go...

hemp makes good fiber, as well as a host of other things...

but it doesnt have ALL the cannabanoids compared to strains of cannabis that are bred for it),(or in the concentrated amounts c that its COUSIN, cannabis does.?

hemp and cannabis are two different, but related plants

why is that so suprising.....???

why dont you look into the regulations regarding what the COUNTIES now have sanctioned in the north state...

why are these such HUGE mental leaps for you??

some people ive met, have recommendations to grow even more...

like i said, it is time to crawl out of your home and educate yourself to the culture of medicinal herbs and alternative cures...

you seem concerned with health, all of us are, who have reached a certain age....

so look into how thc or cbd OILs could help you.

they dont get you nearly as wasted as smoking it.

from the story you recalled last year?

smoking it was clearly the wrong way for YOU to ingest it..

and the fact that you tried it, means you DO need something to help you.

drugs you get from the doctor(unless it is seriously life threatening) are generally bad for you, and not what you want to be doing!!
