It can be. It worked for me when I injured my back. The pills they gave me didn't work as well, plus they tore up my stomach and pretty much knocked me out. With pot, twenty minutes or so would go by, and I'd suddenly realize it no longer hurt. Dunno if it just made me forget about the pain or what, but wouldn't hurt for a few hours. I also know someone who suffers from fibromyalgia, and it's the only thing that helps her.

I also have chronic pain and heard this would help. Right now I'm on pain pills 24/7 which isn't good for you either.

Taking all those pills can't possibly be good for you. Try a few tokes and see if it helps.

Legalize it. It's much better than getting hooked on Oxycontin.

This is a no brainer for many reasons, but the two main ones are: It's a wonder drug for cancer and other serious illnesses, and a whole bunch of law enforcements resources are wasted on it. Just those two make it ridiculous to be outlawed. Pot smokers are generally not violent; and if made legal, the underground sources would have little incentive to continue their criminal activities as legitimate sources would replace them. Governments always grab onto any money-making venture, why should this one be any different. There is a huge tax incentive here and a lot of sick people can be helped. However, this should be treated as alcoholic beverages as far as age of use.

As it stands now, all it does is provide criminals with tax-free employment. Not very bright.

Yes, because "common sense" will win out over "makes no sense" every time.

Legalize it! Let the government tax it the same way they tax tobacco and alcohol. Gererate much needed revenue. Get rid of the federal beauracuracy that tries to control it - save much needed tax payers dollars.

Grow it in your garden beside tobacco. Dry it in your win cellar where you turn grapes into alcohol.

It's been used since the beginning of time, and will be til the end of time. That should be obvious by now. Roll with it. Pun intended.

Please show me in the Bible where it has been used since the beginning of time.

You need to join a good Bible based church.

Sorry, but I don't consider the bible to be a history book. Try studying anthropology. Time didn't begin the day the bible was written, anymore than the earth was created just 6000 years ago. Maybe you need to join the 21st century and catch up on things.

What's the Bible got to do with it? I go to church every week and I smoke it. Just like other people go to church every week and also drink alcohol. Just because wine is mentioned in the Bible, does that make it good? I also have a few thoughts on the "burning bush".

Didn't see any mention of "Bible" in that post. Or are you saying the Bible is the catalog of everything on the planet from the beginning of time?

Seems you have taken this opportunity to proselytizes instead of to impart useful, unbiased information. Do you favor pot, or not favor pot? Any personal anecdotal information?
Nobody is asking you to interpret the bible here.

I consider my body to be a temple of Christ. Therefore, I would never use the stuff.

GOTCHA! If that were true, you'd be at your optimum weight for your height and gender; and you would eat nothing, but the healthiest foods.

So, I believe I've uncovered a hypocrite among us.

Words are your slave until spoken, then you become their slave.
