I wonder:

Cannabis smoking is the inhalation of vapors released by heating the flowers, leaves, or extracts of Cannabis plants, known as marijuana. Smoking releases the main psychoactive chemical in cannabis, Δ9-tetrahydrocannabin ol (THC), which is absorbed into the bloodstream via the lungs.

If you smoke it occasionally it will remain in your system for up to 10 days. If you smoke marijuana on a regular basis it will stay in your system for as long as 45 ...

f a person drinks 250 ml of wine, it would take three hours for the body to metabolize the alcohol. A 500 ml beer would take about two hours. But a strong 500ml strong beer would take much longer since it contains about three units of alcohol. Basically, it would take about twelve hours for the blood to show a negative result on the blood test. But then again, excessive amounts of alcohol intake would take the body longer to completely eliminate it

Possession of marijuana? Really? How crazy is that?

Didn't the Frog Ted Kennedy drive off a bridge drunk out of his mind and kill a lady. To think...he was rewarded by getting to stay and play in politics till he crapped out.

While I think pot is no big deal, he was one who was crying disapproval of a clown's mask. Hypocritical Democrappers.

We should no longer tolerate politicians that believe themselves above the law, elite, entitled to power, and to be served by the electorate. It is They who are to serve Us the people(and self awared Robots). It is the people and the Constitution that proscribe power to representatives and public servants. I demand people of good character, normal people, to seek office. I'm not looking for the prostitute, drunkard or pothead with a "heart of gold" to run for office.(they can just hang with me at home or in the sex box)

did you ever considered the imported Chinese laborer
played a very large part of drugs ... or a advocate like Timothy Leary .. or perhaps the WWI vet and the prescribe drugs of the times... don't blame one or two
especially the white house ..or perhaps MONEY
cocaine is so addictive. Its effects are practically instantaneous. Why would anyone develop such a highly addictive and dangerous drug? One word money.-

the same as a minor...illegal .....

Anyone that has experienced the ever deepening pit of addiction to any substance or activity knows how hard it is to quit. Marijuana is no exception ...

Breaking sugar addiction is absolutely possible:
When a surplus of salt enters the bloodstream,

we all know that isn't good for ya... see people defend the need ....why , because it is legal but can be abusive addictive

I've considered a lot of things about drugs. Cocaine is not addictive, by the way. Not at all. Nor is pot.

You may have read up on them...but I did them. Walked away from cocaine after a year and a half of doing it daily. All I did was mess up the lining of my stomach to have it bother me for the rest of my life. But as far as being addicted to that crap. Nope!

I agree with you...Why would anyone go into doing a drug that is going to rope them into things they would never do until they got hooked.

See, it isn't the drug culture that was taken to it's knees. Not at all. Some of us are real smart like, and just obtain a buzz as we go. Is pharmaceutical that is taking a nation to it's knees via it's friggin' antidepressants and pain pills. Going after American normal. Not the freaks. Freaks know better.

This is where, you may be older, but I am more experienced in this field. I've lost a lot of folk throughout the decades due to drugs. Now I am watching whole families suffer due to pharmaceutical.

Something to ponder...old man.

I've so many thoughts but no words on the 'meth' culture. I mean....why would anyone do that? Is made from all kinds of stuff a human would never touch unless they had no clue. And even those that do have a clue seem so hooked on stupid.
