"We can discretely supply your loved one with the need for as long as necessary, but in exchange we will want some favors that your position can facilitate."




Ahhhhh....therein lies the rub.  I am not a 0.1%er.  I have no position that would be of any significance in granting favors.  If I did, it would already not be a problem, would it?

Wouldn't that require the mind to exist for alterations?


I softened my reply dramatically from the original to take into account the fact that it would be a "fight" with an unarmed man....

Plus the fact that I have lost any and all sense of humor on the topic, and accordingly any sense and exercise of proportion on this issue.

You have to admire how they manage to put it into perspective:

I like to travel, too!  Yeah, we just don't have enough perspective or view of the bigger picture in this country.  Plus, marijuana won't plug you up like narcotic pain relievers do!!  Especially if taken in their 'high fiber' form - brownies!!  A constant concern of the elderly!

But you left out it affects and alters the brain much more than smoking does. Studies have shown that long term MJ use makes you less alert and you don't perform as well on skill testing, MJ makes you less smart in other words.

I'm guessing there's not much room for....nevermind.

Baloney.

Where's this study? Or is it based on a few fake surveys from the 1990's?

Your stand against it is just another excellent point making the case for it!!  Given you past stance and comments on just about everything else....

Still blathering what they taught you in elementary school and what they showed you in the movie "Reefer Madness".  All, or course, nonsense.  See note above....

I thought part of the federal War On Drugs precluded any studies of potential benefits of any Schedule 1 drugs.  That puts THC - the active part of cannabis - in the same category as heroin.  If any peer-reviewed studies exist, I'd like to see a link to them.

Was it FOTD or Aox who was our first advocate here for medical purposes and decrim and legalization? Grin

Seriously, we should get out ahead of the curve on this issue. Already prepared documentation exists for medical marijuana in the state crapitoll. What odds of that happening? And then there's the voters... But shouldn't it just be legalized and regulated on the Federal level? Two years from now will be the window of opportunity.

There's a national chain called Ziggyz that now has 4 locations in the city. Buy futures. They're going to be sitting in the cat nip seat. Short prison corps.... oh, encourage a Brady or Blue Dome location.

Just as Colorado and Washington will out recruit college football players in the coming years, young talent will move to the areas of the country where they aren't hassled for what they do in the privacy of their own homes.

Not as long as we are "fighting a war on drugs" like this:

"A system for sentencing guidelines for federal offenders which directs someone like Officer Brandon McFadden to receive self-surrender, 20 months for dealing 26 kilos of methamphetamine, and to keep his $400,000 house, which was undoubtedly built in part with drug money, demonstrates again the accuracy of the often repeated claim that the law is an a$s"
