Call it PTSD or Anxiety or any other brain related trauma or stress injury but to say it works for everyone I wonder? Pot makes you think even more deeply and cause even more Anxiety, I only wish they could provide testing for all stress related brain issue's, to call something PTSD is I think wrong it should be a universal name that targets mental health issues add Anxiety or panic attacks to the list and just call it BS, Brain Stress.

If the Democrats just stopped and thought for a minute, they would legalize Marihuana in a heart beat. What better way is there to get a very large segment of the population to tune in, drop out and let career political hacks have their way taxing and spending? Republicans, if they ever regain control would benefit too from legalization of pot. They could slash and burn as many programs as they chose and the large-pot smoking population wouldn't care as long as you left their pot alone and did not tax it, lol. Maybe if the psychotic bastards that have done the rampage shooting had been smoking pot they wouldn't have done what they did. In my last unit in the Army, I served with a guy from "Illinois, SOUTHERN Illinois" as he was fond of saying. Whenever he got drunk, he picked a fight with someone. Until the day he discovered Hash, made from the resins of the Marihuana plant's trunk. After that, he was the mellowest dude in the company

Even so, this is still a substance that is not totally accepted as something legitimate.

What is Protandim?
Protandim is a daily dietary supplement that combats oxidative stress through Nrf2 activation.
Oxidative stress is inevitable for everyone.
Protandim significantly reduces oxidative stress through Nrf2 activation.
Nrf2 regulates survival genes.

Oxidative stress, generated through the process of living life (eating, sleeping, breathing, exercising), is inevitable for everyone, but LifeVantage has the solution: Protandim, the Nrf2 Synergizer, the most important dietary supplement of our time.

Comprised of natural plant ingredients, Protandim is a patented, science-based formula that has been researched, tested and validated by renowned universities and institutions. It is the only supplement clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress in humans by an average of 40 percent in 30 days.

Protandim activates Nrf2, which communicates with cells, instructing them to do what they're already designed to do: up-regulate "survival genes," genes that enable cells to survive in the face of stress from free radicals and other oxidants, and down-regulate other genes that promote inflammation and fibrosis to help the body function at an optimal level.

I'm a nurse. More and more physicians are prescribing Marinol and other cannabis pharmaceuticals to their patients for a number of diagnoses. It's just a matter of time before marijuana vaporizers will be ordered for home health use, just like nebulizers or c-pap machines.

Yes. LifeVantage's apple a day does keep the doctor..., well, as an independent distributor, I can't make any medical claims; so, if you are serious about finding out if "this stuff works," do what I did: go on www.pubmed.gov , the U.S. Library of medicine, and type in Oxidative Stress--That will validate the science. Type in Protandim--That will validate the product. Go to www.nasdaq.com/symbol/lfvn and validate the company. Next, see what ABC News Primetime had to say about it: http://www.2nrf2.com If you see the profit potential in being first to market this, get back with the original post-maker (their name doesn't appear on my screen or I would write it here) and they can answer your questions. No super-hype, no beach balls, no confetti; just plain, elegant science.

That old song wasn't about marijuana, silly. In any case, I bet you don't refuse the opiods that your dentist or physician prescribes for pain. You should see how your peers pop the narcotics. Old people really love morphine, especially. Marijuana is lightweight compared to pharmaceuticals. Wake up, pal.

Oh, I'm very much aware Along Comes Mary. As aware as 25 or 6 to 4. Stupid band directors in H.S. have no idea, nor will the old farts figure it out. They are mindless. Promoting the drug culture. You yourself should know many doctors and nurses are In bed with the "drug companies".
