I have friends who learned from their parents how to grow it. A handful of seeds, y'throw 'em on the ground, water 'em and watch the little sprouts grow. The only parts they didn't smoke were the stems. It's the easiest thing in the world to grow.
I once made my own waterpipe. That, too, is the easiest thing in the world to do. Want to make a carburetor? Poke a hole in the side of an empty toilet paper or paper towel cardboard roll, stick a joint in it, place your mouth over one end and the palm of your hand over the bottom. Boom--instant and free carburetor!
I have only one problem with pot.
If u mix it with "spin" - it makes u hooked on nicotine. Now I've given up pot, but still smoke cigarettes.

The full name is diacetylmorphine. It was invented by Bayer in the 1890s, as a cough mixture.
From 1898 through to 1910, diacetylmorphine was marketed under the trademark name Heroin as a non-addictive morphine substitute and cough suppressant. Bayer marketed the drug as a cure for morphine addiction.

Diacetylmorphine was first synthesized in 1874 by C. R. Alder Wright, an English chemist working at St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London.

Wright's invention did not lead to any further developments, and diacetylmorphine became popular only after it was independently re-synthesized 23 years later by another chemist, Felix Hoffmann. Hoffmann, working at the Aktiengesellschaft Farbenfabriken (today the Bayer pharmaceutical company) in Elberfeld, Germany, was instructed by his supervisor Heinrich Dreser to acetylate morphine with the objective of producing codeine, a constituent of the opium poppy, pharmacologically similar to morphine but less potent and less addictive. Instead, the experiment produced an acetylated form of morphine one and a half to two times more potent than morphine itself.

What's "spin?" If it's a tobacco product, why would anyone mix weed with tobacco?

All very interesting, thanks.
You are welcome...now look up Hemp. It was wrongfully clumped together with Cannibus. It has no THC value whatsoever. It's a weed that grows quickly and could supply jobs and material to many industries.
Look into it's possibilities...the injustice of it being illegal is a travisty.

Yes, he remains the same: nonexistent. That mere mortals can alter the infallible word of an omnipotent makes him..........not so omnipotent.

<quoted text>Not only is Free Will incompatible with an omniscient, recent studies have shown that it is not even a valid concept. Don't equivocate choice with Free Will as espoused by theists. They are not analogous. Given almost identical scenarios, and individual will respond in an almost identical manner every time. We are products of our phenotypes, our DNA, and all that has passed before us throughout our evolution. While environment influences choice, heredity seals the deal. There are copious amounts of writing and study out there for you to peruse. It may make the theistic scales drop from your eyes. Use caution if you don't want your faith challenged. <quoted text>Ah, but you are begging the question here. You call it creation and then claim it is intelligent design. How do you tie that into your culturally-conditioned idea of what a god or gods is, then, exactly?
From our fine friends at the Discovery Institute:
“The theory of intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.”
To have any scientific validity, theories need to set constraints on possible outcomes. That means there have to be potential observations and measurements not explicable by the theory. What potential observation or measurement could show that “certain features”(whatever that may mean) of the universe are not “best explained”(who judges whether or not an explanation is “best”?) by “intelligent cause”(what exactly does that mean? How does one distinguish between intelligent and non-intelligent cause?) To make a scientific case,(DI, not you, as i know you were not doing that) they need to come up with an hypothesis which can be tested, just as any other scientific hypothesis can be tested.
Here’s an example of a theory for those who consider ID as relevant, one that can be tested, and falsified. Listen to how precise it is, how predictive and specific it is.
“Any two material particles, or bodies, if free to move, will be accelerated toward each other with a force proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.”
THAT is a robust theory, capable of being tested, observed, and falsified.
“We can’t explain some stuff so therefore design” isn’t a theory. It doesn’t deserve to be treated as one. It has no predictive power. It has no specific claims. It is vague and general. It has all the hallmarks of pseudoscience. I realize you are operating through emotion,,and not science, and that is fine, but to make the claim while begging the question, you do yourself a great disservice.
Good post.

Incorrect. BibleGod changes across the canon -- regularly. And his word has too. Thus, the notion of dispensations -- an explanation from some Christians of why BibleGod and his message changes.

So now tell me, what part of the canon is BibleGod's work and which part is the work of "The Church"?

Nothing was overlooked, not by me and SL is busy and can't be here all the time. Is this post written in hope of a respectful and open discussion? I'm very sorry that my short, affirmative posts bore you into joining Annie in passive aggressive mockery. I don't always have the time to sit here typing for hours so I quickly acknowledge some and go. I was going to respond to your excellent post to me privately and a bit later. I really admire that you take responsibility for your words and assumptions, most people don't. When I want to verbally retaliate, I don't usually follow with a cover especially after rebuking equal behaviour, this particular tactic is very unexpected coming from you NS but each to their own I suppose, no one is perfect, not one. It's very easy to lose perspective here and fall in with joking, mocking, futile debates, mimicking troll tactics etc...You are right.
<3
You have never been disrespectful nor abusive in your comments to or about homosexuals…that is the negative and harmful behavior Annie and I were discussing. The post you are responding to above had absolutely nothing to do with you.

That is why Mass use to be entirely in Latin which most of the congregations did not understand. They had no wish for them to be educated in any manner than the way The Church wished to manipulate them. Even Priests were not allowed to study the Bible, only as taught through their Hierarchy.
At the beginning of the Catholic movement, the pagan followers were blended into their congregations for faster expansion and to control their pagan beliefs. In that process, they incorporated various pagan beliefs to keep the "natives" appeased. Thing is, they never let go of these less than Holy traditions. Some of the worst being that of praying to a dead woman and putting her, through the rosary, etc. nearly equal to Christ.
Other religions may do as they wish, but Catholicism is considered Christianity by most, and I find less and less connection every day. Certainly makes the case for Babylon as the Vatican and present Roman Empire.
I must say I quite enjoy your thought-out posts.
Thanks so much - I appreciate that. We all need to support each other because there are plenty of those who hate us.
I truly believe we’re in the End Times and that Christians have the personal responsibility for spreading the Gospel as much as possible, both online and personally.
Our leaders have failed us, as evidenced by the widespread ignorance of true Christianity and how simple the Gospel is. Then there’s also the Clergy Response Team and those who have turned a simple faith into satanic large corporations that take the money which should have been used to spread the Gospel around the world.
So, we carry on because we have no choice. People are dying faster because of extreme poverty and greed, and I believe we’re about to see the worst at the same time as we’ll be denied internet access (666=www).
