and riccardo had one bad experience.....and since he too, is a one dimensional thinker, like asian guy??
he thinks NOBODY benefits from the medicinal properties of pot.
Don't say what I think, just say what you think. I have smoked pot going back years, I used it to get high. I quit years ago and then tried it for medical reasons, it didn't help..okay? I never said NOBODY benefits from pot. Many do. I'm all for Medical pot. I doubt 90% of the pot users that got a medical card really are using it for a medical reason. They are selling it and using it to get high. I'm for it to be legal, just stop making the claims it cures this and that, just admit you like the feeling of being "high" and move on. Many of the people using pot for cancer and other ailments get more benefits from the oil, not the bong.

then be more precise in your posts.....

you often make it sound like MMJ is worthless....

which it isnt.

if it was??

I wouldnt be prohibited...

it contains many properties not yet realized.

you say reseach has been on going for years??

in the US???? not that much actually?

compare it to how much money has been spent developing chemotherapy drugs....

and that is JUST one area where MMJhas shown promise.

there are many.

it is people with emperical knowledge of its effects on the ground....that would be a great source of knowledge to tap into.

but currently you can still get expelled from your college for smoking in the dorm(would you get expelled for drinking?)

so MMJ research isnt the first thing that federal auditors and legislators think of when they are designing grants and other gifts to acedemia.

....and not he first thing that school administators think of when they are designing their budgets...

people are still DISBELIEVERS!!

and that ignorance is the problem.

every day, run of the mill MMJ patients would be a great source of info for research??

but currently?? they are being harrased to no end by the federal government. SO, participating in collegate studies might not be their highest priority.

Wow. Look at who's trying for the middle of the road- nice buddy. There's a change. Just a tip, usually it's for turning not for travel.
And Medical Dispensary Cannabis is priced to discourage resale- it's not like Valium or OxyContin-you could produce it for yourself but at a price. If the market price is less than the cost of production you have a real reason to buy.
Controlling these factors helps to determine the producers the customers and the market.

exactly, were not advocating studying the science off bong hits....

that area HAS been fully researched..

I know because I used to do some of it...

the science of what is contained in the 400 chemical compound is what is exciting right??

big pharma is scared whitless.....

for obvious reasons....

It came from the pot website...NORML

and from the420times.com

Are you saying a pot site is not accurate? why would a pot site be putting out a high figure?

cheaper yes....

patients prefer purchasing medicine from dispensaries because they can find the strain they want.....

each strain and sub strain has a unique chemical make up, and thus must be considered different kinds of medicine...

and it is.... a science surrounding that aspect of MMJ, is emerging online.

formal research of the effects of different strains is only being conducted at places like oaksterdam U.

and other small facilities that value MMJ and dare to cross the feds...

i always found it fishy that the feds go RIGHT after those who are doing research....they are henchmen for big pharma, just like the eradication crews...

In truth??

all patients who consult with their doctors, over strain reccomendations, are doing "research" on the topic...

Don't give me that patient BS, 95% are fake patients, you know I know it we all know it. Go to a pot shop and tell me they are patients. The pot shops buy it from the same people that grow it and sell it on the streets.

Along with WallStreet, GOP and Republican Ponzi schemer's that finally brought down the US economy this scumbag was at work and protected.

In 2006, Allen Stanford had yet to be identified as the mastermind of one of the largest and longest-running Ponzi schemes in U.S. history, but he faced mounting pressure.

Don't give me that BS. You know it, I know it, we all know it. The only thing people who make up their own statistics have a decent view of is their own colon.

I am celebrating Christmas, are you? We all have some invisible chains and things we are not proud of, but that will up to God to forgive. What do you think?
