Re: “What Are They Smoking?

Wow Concerned Mom, I figure that your kids are stressing you out. Disappear for a few minutes in the comfort of your bedroom and light one up. Hopefully your attitude will improve.

Re: “What Are They Smoking?

It is interesting how the loosening of requirements intended to fast-track treatments for AIDS allowed hundreds, if not thousands, of pharmaceutical company-created drugs to flood the market making billions, yet medical marijuana is still struggling for a place.

It only goes to prove my earlier point -- if they can't make a very lot of money from it, the use of marijuana for medical and recreational purposes will continue to be an uphill battle.

It also doesn't help that prosecuting marijuana "offenses" and incarcerating the offenders remains a serious revenue stream for the private prison systems in the United States, a trend that is not likely to change in the next four years.

Re: “What Are They Smoking?

As indicated in the article, the "movement" also has much to do with decades of past injustices and millions of prosecutions with confiscation of property and ruining of lives without conscience. It used to be much worse than it is now, but mean spirited intolerance, Concerned Mom, is still a bigger problem in this country than people who prefer marijuana.

Re: “High Hopes for High Times

I know he is not in office yet, but when that nominee for top-cop Attorney General said that "good people do not smoke marijuana" he clearly showed his cards and, like Trump, will never admit he's wrong. Richard Nixon had a "no knock" law with police crashing through doors to catch "bad" people and soon we may have them standing in the living rooms of America again.

Re: “What Are They Smoking?

The movement itself is based on a total lack of self control. The country has a serious problem with it.

Re: “What Are They Smoking?

The reason the legalization of marijuana is gaining any momentum at all in certain circles has less to do with the change in public attitudes than the potential for taxes and monetization by government entities and powerful corporations.

If you need any examples of how terribly wrong this can go look no further than efforts to tax and monetize the Internet and social media. As soon as the powers to be figure out how to make the "Interweb" pay out, you can forget about streaming anything other than infomercials.

As for legalizing marijuana, same thing, once they figure out how to tax it and the corporations are growing it look for "Big Fats" and "Quarter-bags with seeds" with more carcinogens and added ingredients than fast foods.

Re: “High Hopes for High Times

In a perfect world, it would just be about the health and quality of life for the patient; Unfortunately, in the world we live in, unless there is money to be made -- and I mean lots and lots of money -- the health and quality of life for patients will not even move the needle on the average career politicians G.A.S. (give a sh@t) gauge.

Re: “High Hopes for High Times

Just a tidbit a new foundation is being set in Washington a new congress.

Congress just passed a" 21st Centuries Cure Act " This was co written by Our Martha McSally.

https://www.statnews.com/2016/11/30/21st-century-cures-act-house/

This is major this alone in the 11th hour will force the new congress to take action. We will see the schedule 1 change and study federal standards licensing processing standards. flower will be allowed as it is the fastest delivery method possible controllable on dosage and safe.

We dont hear that much from McSally in this tumultuous political climate. With this we know that she is working this is how the schedule 1 change will happen. Plus so much more for mental health. A bomb went off in Washington exploding the climate I am happy to have her there in a senior environment with a need to come to her endorsement for the next congress.

Re: “High Hopes for High Times

IMHO. To see a qualified doctor with the certification and discuss the use. This alone should be a strong consideration for keeping expanding as well as new targets to direct.

I talk frequently with my neurologist and internist about my use and relate that. I have asked several times if there was an alternate medication. While they all said yes we can try some but in your case it is trial and adjust. Then they all looked at me with complex why would you want to change what's working? My blood work is in control, you're moving around you can help with your high functioning autistic grandchild why would you want to change? Well the stigma and the possible legal ramifications.

So here I wonder Just what is up with our congressmen get this off the schedule 1. There is no other target at this point we dont need crony capitalism of marketability like the public rapeing that 205 would have done. It is not about legalize and tax at some point others have to understand it is about health and quality of life.

Trump is not going to risk losing the support of the states that swung him into office, from Nevada to Florida. Marijuana is continuing to roll out.

Re: “Roll Out

In my humble opinion, Sessions only has one thing in his favor. An unwavering support of the Second Amendment.

Other than that, he is an ass. He reminds me of Ashcroft, who was an unmitigated disaster and embarrassment as Attorney General.

Re: “Cannabis and cancer

MEDICINAL THC CANNABIS OIL CURED MY WIFE'S CANCER

I am writing as the husband of a cancer patient, hoping that an important lesson that my wife and I learned may be of value to others.

My wife Cathy 53, had a history of cancer. Her mother died of breast cancer at the age of 42, and my wife had colo-rectal cancer at the age of 49. Fortunately, surgery alone was able to take care of the one tumor, sparing her the effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

In December of 2014, Cathy noticed that her legs were aching and tiring quickly; my mother, 81 at the time, could last longer when shopping. Cathy was not overweight and used a Nordic Track exerciser regularly. Soon she noticed that her left leg was swelling slightly. We immediately went to the doctor and a CAT scan was performed, but nothing turned up. Other tests also revealed nothing, and the conclusion was drawn that the swelling was lymphedema caused by old scar tissue from the abdominal surgery she had 16 years ago! We found that hard to believe and got numerous more tests and opinions, only to come back to the same place.

The lymphedema spread to her abdomen and other leg, causing swelling there as well. Finally, about a year later, a CAT Scan finally revealed a tumor, and a biopsy determined that it was malignant. Further testing revealed she was in Stage III.

At about the same time, we learned through reading a book on cancer treatments, that there is a blood test called AMAS (Anti-Malignan Antibody in Serum), that will reveal the presence of cancer in the body, sometimes as much as 24 months PRIOR to clinical evaluation (such as a CAT scan), with great accuracy. We were never advised to have this blood test performed, and found that many doctors, including oncologists, do not know of the test. We believe that had we known about this test earlier, we would have had a much earlier diagnosis, making the disease much easier to treat. she has done chemotherapy twice (Taxol and Carboplatinum) but the cancer was not gone until we heard about the cannabis oil and its effective usage in treatment of cancer and we contacted the London cancer centre via emailing the centre at londoncancercentre@gmail.com for procurement of the THC cannabis oil and started using the oil for treatment as directed by the cannabis physician.

After 3 months of usage of this THC cannabis oil my wife's cancer was completely cured and gone. This oil medication brought joy and happiness to the family again.

Re: “High Cost

Did you notice Nick had so much about the story he didn't mention who brought the suit. Just a little of the nuances of that are so persuasive from ADA but lack foundation.
