Pot Busts Hit Shopkeepers Hardest

Apparently you failed to notice that I was specifically talking about SMOKING marijuana. I am aware that there are other ways of taking in the substance, and I think they are less harmful than inhalation. Btw, were any studies done on the effects of marijuana on the intestinal lining (or any of the internal organs? I'm curious to see if ingestion leads to an increased cancer risk  (Sep 11, 2008 | post #44)

September 11, 2001

On September 11, 2001, at about 7am, I woke up with the news blaring from my radio alarm clock. Some lady was screaming, and I had NO idea what was happening. My mom came in and shouted that the trade center was under attack. I got up and sat next to my mom on the couch, both of us stunned and horrified. I went to school as normal, and I just remember how quiet it was. Everyone was in a state of shock. We were informed of what had happened at the World Trade Center before we went to class. We didn't have normal classes, we just sat in our home rooms and watched the images on the news. Eventually, we had to evacuate the school (because it was on government property), and we had to call home to get permission to leave. I walked home with a friend, and neither of us could say anything. Everything was just so quiet and grey that day. Please take the time to remember the people that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. And take the time to comfort those that are still grieving. Today, show someone that you care. Make a bouquet for your mom, make breakfast for someone in your home, open a door for a stranger, etc. Random acts of kindness do wonders for a community. And, most importantly, tell the people that are close to you that you love them..often.  (Sep 11, 2008 | post #3)

Pot Busts Hit Shopkeepers Hardest

Are you even aware of the HUNDREDS of chemicals that make up A SINGLE marijuana leaf??? Many these chemicals are extremely harmful...they equate smoking one joint to smoking an entire pack of cigarettes...why? Because MANY of the harmful chemicals in MJ are also found in cigarettes. http://www.science daily.com/releases /2007/12/071217110 328.htm http://cyber.law.h arvard.edu/evidenc e99/marijuana/Heal th_1.html http://www.medic8. com/healthguide/ar ticles/marijuana.h tml It may be natural, but so are oleander bushes. And, the pesticides and fertilizers used in much of pot production add to the list of harmful chemicals. Why put smoke (in general) into your lungs, which are some of the most delicate organs in your body? If you truly respect yourself, don't poison your body. *shakes head*  (Sep 11, 2008 | post #40)

Report DOPE GROWERS! Get a CASH REWARD!

I've seen it. Literally EVERYONE I know that smokes/has smoked weed has moved on to harder drugs. Cocaine, LSD, Mushrooms, Ecstasy, meth...many of the bright individuals I knew/am related to have lost half of their IQs, not to mention all of their integrity. It's heartbreaking to think about all of that potential being thrown away over drugs. I know I'm going to be attacked by every pro-druggie out there for this, but to me, pot IS a gateway drug. Why is this? Because these people were seeking out a better "high." Once the effects of pot became harder (and more expensive) to achieve, they move on to the next best thing. *shakes head  (Sep 10, 2008 | post #243)

Great response, Watcher! I think the county is perfectly capable of surviving without commercial growers. Btw, which stores are closing?? Isn't it possible that the stores closed for other reasons..i.e. a change of hands, bad management, poor service, lack of diversity in products, poor advertisement, high cost of rent, etc? *insert sarcasm* Or, maybe the owners are growers themselves (and have been arrested for breaking the law?)  (Sep 10, 2008 | post #11)

It's very very true. I have experienced this, along with many friends and family members. I'm also notified daily by customers that are being harassed/endangere d by unneighborly growers. It's terrible.  (Sep 8, 2008 | post #298)

Amazing :) You know, I really can't wait to hike in the mountains again without the fear of being threatened, caught in a bear trap or SHOT. Anyone else agree?  (Sep 8, 2008 | post #294)

Chili Cook-Off in downtown Ukiah
