RE: The 'Balancing Effect' of two herbs... My medical history has proven that a thoughtful balance of our two most widely smoked herbs....tobacco & marijuana.....comb ined with the RELATIVE ABSENCE of societal/criminal PARANOIA.....resul ts in my physical and mental health and well-being IMPROVING. Now....I AM NOT ADVOCATING THE USE OF TOBACCO....or THE USE OF MARIJUANA..... just stating that....the nicotine and other stimulants in tobacco was been my way of 'tempering the THC levels' which allowed me to discover a splendid (and creative) physical calm...while improving my level of concentration....a nd my productivity and pleasure. I tried quitting both.....but found that I lost of of my creative drive.....and interest in many things which I loved and cherished.....and gained cleaner lungs.....and 50 pounds. (I have since adjusted my diet and exercise and lost 60....and am back to a very 'normal' 6-0 and 190#. YES...I HAVE BEEN STUDIED and TESTED...and YES.....(as Chris et al. have stated) several world class research universities are finding the same results that I have chosen to 'beta test'.... on myself over the past 35 years. I WAITED UNTIL I WAS 20 TO 'TRY' THC.....and was not a 'pack a day' tobacco smoker until I could afford it....which was AFTER HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION. (When last I smoked marijuana....my daily average usage was ONE CIGARETTE per DAY....just like it was within 3 years of my first experience.) I am fully aware that (relatively) LOCAL/HOMEGROWN NON-TAXED HERBS ARE STRONGER NOW THAN IN THE 70's...to which I say....THANK GOD and THANK YOU to: N.O.R.M.L., HIGH-TIMES, and 'People Like ME....and US. I KNOW SEVERAL YOUNGER USERS WHO WOULD BE WELL SERVED TO 'SEE THEIR ADDICTIONS' AS A CHANCE TO LEARN & GROW.....and..if they so desire....continue ....AFTER THEY UNDERSTAND THAT: everything....EVER YTHING you ingest...legal or otherwise....and everything you THINK or DO...can and indeed does have both positive and negative effects and consequences. DO NOT SELF MEDICATE....unless you have carefully considered such a decision. By the way....our 'legal' drugs (i.e. Alcohol and Caffeine) prove both the theory.....and should also point to the absurdity of prohibition. IGNORANCE IS NO EXCUSE FOR PROHIBITION....or for self-inflicted damage. peace.  (May 13, 2008 | post #1725)

Chris & Fed: Again...thank you. To Chris: My 'style' and lack of typing skills.... and 'typos' and 'brainos'.....are all real and not as a result of any 'testing' or self medication. My latest X-POST from TOPIX.net covers some of my LIBERTARIAN beliefs. (It is also 'stream of conciousness'..... .and reveals my LEFT-HANDED/ RIGHT-BRAINED style.) I am many years removed from my college days in the 1970's.....but it is easy to see that... THC was and is (in retrospect) a friend of 'ME'. Nearly every creative impulse...and most of my writing,studying, reading, and ENJOYMENT....of my years receiving an A.A. in Theatre....and a B.S. in History...... was 'under the influence' of fresh air, tobacco, THC and extensive travel and philosophic discovery. I then spent a very successful 16 years in both guest services and hotel management...and then automobile sales......often aided by the relaxation afforded by eschewing the more common '6-pack' evening...for a quiet "3 deep puff' life style. These days.....more than a decade removed from traftional 'work' (and dedicating 80-100 hours a week to art, popular culture, gardening, travel.....and always....mindful of my CAT and Nature Conservancy......a nd as a dedicated listener to 'old -fashioned' FM Radio (Country has followed Rock as my favorite).....I continue to believe that EVERYONE.....user or not...would be well served if we allowed persons over 18 the right to CHOOSE....to consume and benefit from anything....with two simple caveates: STRICT PROTECTION & PROHIBITION for MINORS....and ZEALOUS ENFORCEMENT of D.U.I. LAWS. Other than that......I WOULD MUCH RATHER DEAL WITH NON-ABUSERS of any substance......but the key word is 'ABUSERS'......not 'SUBSTANCE'. I know...the choir agrees...... I can only hope all the world citizens can see that CANNABANOIDS hold great promise as a VASTLY SUPERIOR INTOXICANT...over: Alcohol, Tobacco, Methamphetemines, Greed and Ignorance. I am not a 'pure libertarian'.....j ust another citizen who KNOWS.....The Southern Appalchian Region's #1 CASH CROP...is NOT TOBACCO....for which I say Amen...and am willing to recommend an old CD/Album by a fine poet,author, writer, musician and performer: Peter Tosh's "LEGALIZE IT". peace *** ** *  (May 6, 2008 | post #1687)

Green, Libertarian parties' lawsuit goes to trial

As a 'NON-AFFILIATED' VOTER in NORTH CAROLINA..... (former and future....and ALWAYS Libertarian)..... may I humbly add: By my estimation.....sin ce 1948...... the two 'major parties'.....have differed in 'NET TAXATION/ PROGRAMS' by less than 5%. Meanwhile....WE THE PEOPLE..... who are THE EMPLOYERS..... OF EVERY PERSON WHO HAS EVER.....ever! worked for our own Federal Government....... must be daft and 'certifiably nutso'.... continue to allow 'OUR EMPLOYEES' to hoodoo and hoodwink us into either..... groveling for much needed social and political reforms........ OR..... PRAY that our International Policies PROTECT OUR LIBERTIES and DO NOT Squander our limited.....accent on OUR...... resources on dangerous and wasteful...and STONE COLD DEADLY.... 'well planned and received WARS and INTERVENTIONS. Argh.......... as a BABY BOOMER...... NOW IS THE TIME TO REJECT ANYONE who either 'looks the other way' when ALL WOMEN, ALL SPOUSE, ALL DAUGHTERS and THE U.S. CONSTITUTION are injured by 'Southern Jazz Musicians'..... and...... on the 'other side'...... WE THE PEOPLE....have witnessed another administration...h eaded by a bone-headed Wyoming Oil Man....and his 'associate'.... while OUR TAX DOLLARS.....have funded an $800 BILLION plus search for.... 'nasty non-Christians' in Iraq and other points around the globe..... at a cost of 4,000 Brave Souls in BODY BAGS..... 40,000 Severely maimed HEROES...... and perhaps 2,000,000 plus Patriots ans or their dependents...who live at or near the poverty line...needing food stamps...or 'blind luck' to survive the very policies that led 'our esteemed leaders'...of both parties.....to fritter away our safety, name and financial security..... in the name of..... "NATIONAL SECURITY'. Double- Argh!!!!!!! Think Different......it may be time to have WE THE PEOPLE....pay our taxes.....AFTER THE FACT.....rather than BEFORE WE KNOW just what these two 'Blue & Red' Crony-laden Gangs will actually do with our funding. And.....MOTHER EARTH would be well served with a TRUE ENERGY POLICY........and. .... WE THE PEOPLE would be safer and richer..... if their were NO SUPER POWERS.... just 6.75 Billion People..... attempting to 'Live, Love, Laugh and Survive' until their (OUR) Great Grandchildren can somehow......pay off our NATION DEBT. ***** Have a DECENT PRIMARY DAY 2008......and HOPE & PRAY....we find our way to January 20,2009......witho ut more of the same..... pointless military adventures.....and egregious over taxation....by our 'PUBLIC SERVANTS. -a 'NON-AFFILATED' VOTER, TAXPAYER, PATRIOT and GREEN LIBERTARIAN...... peace.  (May 5, 2008 | post #2)

I was BY THE JUDGE who accepted my guilty plea for (note the wording) "possessing alcohol OR a conrolled substance" at a State Park. I asked the JUDGE...about 'legal herbs' (purchased in Myrtle Beach, SOUTH Carolina....and was told "THEY ARE NOT LEGAL HERE". (Further research has found the 'problem'....anyth ing that 'looks' like any illicit substance can be considered.... "FRAUDULENT POSSESSION OF PLACEBO's"... .. ??? !!!! Hello...........

YES ...the same liberal/Conservati ve 'Representatives, Senators, Presidents and...their APROVED Supreme Court Members.... CONTINUE TO: SUPPORT & TAX ALCOHOL & TOBACCO....while NO ONE I KNOW...has EVER (or at least....VERY VERY RARELY.....died from PREFERING THREE PUFFS to 3 BEERS or a pack of TAXABLE SMOKING MATERIAL> And WE WONDER WHY...WE ARE NOW TEETERING ON THE BRINK OF 'Recession' and PAYING @ 40K per HOUR to keep OUR BRAVE PILOTS IN THE AIR...above foreign lands. (THE SAME PER HOUR RATE 5 years ago....was $14K per hour. THAT IS THOUSANDS...and THEIR HAVE BEEN MILLIONS DIRECTLY SICKENED & TAXED & MEDICATED.......fo r this same bunch of.. 'PUBLIC SERVANYS;'. We The People SHOULD BE Progressive Libertarians... and TAKE CARE OF OWN LAND & FAMILIES & HABITS...and STOP LISTENING TO THE MORALLY BANKRUPT RIGHT 7 THE HOPELESSLY 'BIG GOVERNMENT' LEFT. ENOUGH!!!!! IT IS OUR MONEY,OUR RIGHTS & OUR VOTE. Time for ONE GOOD CEE-GAR.

"about 5 miles"...... or as some of us who live in Mitchell County might say..... DO SAY: The abysmally un-interested and under-informed regional media OFTEN regard their readers and listeners from the 'sticks' as UN-IMPORTANT BECAUSE SOME GENERAL MANAGER or NEWS EDITOR did not assign a LOCAL WRITER.......or worse..... used WIRE-COPY or..'Arbitron'.... .. to decide if: THE PARENTS & FRIENDS of injured or lost or missing children...(or readers.......or listeners....or viewers)..... DO NOT MATTER as much as MONEY. ****** meanwhile another story might be happening to "THE RICH/POWERFUL/PREF ERRED"....... friends of: YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS.... Got it AC-T.......?????? WHAT IF IT WERE YOUR CHILD.... "about 5 miles" from: AHS,ACR, TCR......or Charlotte Catholic......or.. ....??? .......TIME TO GO TO: MY LOCAL NEWSPAPER......or search for a BETTER source of "MY NEWS". "Journailsm 101...or is it ..... REALLY TRUE that THE EDITORS/ STATION MANAGERS in: Asheville, Charlotte, and/or......Greenv ille & Spartanburg just DO NOT CARE...unless their Corporate 'Suits'.... and/or Advertising Managers.....

As I am sure YOU have..... do you have an opinion of my 'declaration of blogger's first amendment rights?.....and... .. The most recent of 15 round trips.....from Red Hill to Erwin.....I was pondering the wisdom of blogging before the facts are known. Hmm....maybe my badge does say "NCDOT'/ TENNDOT ALL ACCESS...........( or maybe not). And you? Are you just barking...waiting for WEDNESDAY'S 3-5 inch snowfall....so the tracks will be covered.
