It sure helps a person sleep too.  I dont partake in the delight much anylonger but when I did, I enjoyed it.  Good music, good sex, and the taste of food are three things that I loved when I 'talked to the big dawg'!  The kennel is empty here these days.

Rare treat for me, but last year when I was suffering through Meniere's Disease (daily vertigo, nausea, headaches, etc.), no medicine I tried would manage the symptoms. I ended up smoking some pot and the symptoms went away for a day! I started taking two hits daily for a couple months (even behind my place of work with my boss's approval) until the mastoiditis which was causing Meniere's Disease healed. It was a lifesaver! It helped me to function when no medicine could. Once the infection cleared up I stopped smoking, but I do enjoy it once or twice a month or so in the company of friends.

Why is this not legal? :D

Prohibition era mistake! 

One argument is that the government should control it and make money from it.  I use to think that would be great but as I have grown more mature and cynical (perhaps those two go hand in hand), I think the govt would only mess things up.  It should not be a crime though I agree.

It's legal in Quebec, if you have a medical card for it and they sell some premo stuff. All hydroponic growth, about 10 types and an ounce will cost you about $180. Read it and weep my American friends.

I know what you mean.  But on the other hand, I would love to go to one of those dispensaries just once.  I watched a documentary on the ones in California on the History Channel one night.  They had a little bar in the back where a waitress would heat up a glass stick for your bong .  They had menus with all the various strains for you to choose from.  It even had a description of the kind of high each choice would give you.  And there was a whole street of these places....  and they put they product in these beautiful containers...  and everyone just seemed so happy...  

Dee is one lucky bastard.  No wonder he's hardly ever on.

So is having HIV just an excuse with this (or for most)?  Am I really supposed to believe that you folks are so knee deep in your AIDS suffering that you need pot to survive daily, or do you just like getting high?  Sure, give me some flack on saying that but at least when Miss P throws back the mega-doses of klonnies she's under no illusions of what's going on and why, and I certainly don't say it's to lessen my neuropathy.

ps: those of you with daily nausea are excused from this morality play. ::)

HIV is one of the conditions that qualify's you for medical marijuan (here in washington) however...
I would say the majority are probably just getting high, for getting high's sake.  Every year in Seattle there is "Hempfest" and it attracts>>>thousands<<< of people.  Its a big to-do, and there do not apear to be a lot of people who are ill.  I actually don't partake very often at all however, I am glad that I live somewhere that if I feel as though its something that would help I know some hillbilly sherriff ist going to throw me in the pokey.

They won't do that here in New Mexico, unless you have more than an ounce, then it's only a misdemeanor, with a fine, but they don't really enforce it at all  ;D nobody I know even has a card here, it's not really needed ;D

I love Funyuns!  They would probably taste even better after 420, but I have to go back to my college days to recall the last time I partook (or should I say partoke?).

i smoke because i like to smoke. i have not smoked in over a month because i have to get some things in my life in order. i don't see myself smoking in the near future either.

ive been smoking since my teenage years. don't really do much else these days, drinking or otherwise. i don't even remember what the otherwise was or when it happened. getting old(er) blows.

the medical card is to cover my ass. being a minority who happened to be stoned all the time was not in my best legal interest.

  helped me big time ,  as I went through hep c treatment.


Me too! I had unbearable joint pain, particularly my hips, while on the treatment (and for a few years after, although not quite as bad as during) and pot was the only thing that really helped. Some days it was so bad I could hardly stand up. I had to use a cane to get around. All it would take would be two or three tokes and I'd be good to go for a few hours. I wasn't even smoking enough to get high.

I do like to smoke pot recreationally as well, but here on the Rock it's so expensive and difficult to come by that I wasn't wasting it on getting high when I needed it for pain relief.

I haven't had any in over a year because things have gotten even worse since 2002/03 when I did the hep treatment. When you can find a supply, the price is simply ridiculous. I may save up some money and buy myself a little treat - maybe for the solstice in June. :)

Ah yes, my best girlfriend Mary Jane....

I like to smoke for the sake of smoking, I'll be honest about that. I really do enjoy it. My favorite was always having a smoke on the front porch on a Friday evening, after a long week at work. Just watching the sun go down over the mountain. I also liked to have a nice smoke while standing in front of my easel and painting too.

   But I also smoke to negate some of the symptoms I feel from this infection as well as the side effects from the meds. The nausea, the headaches, and the just being grumpy sometimes. So I'll call it a 50/50 split between medical and recreational use.

   I haven't smoked since the beginning of the year. I went through a period of hating my job so much that I was dangerously close to punching out our General Manager for beig such a spineless jellyfish as well as a Class-A prick. So I was seeking alternate employment, and abstained as I would likely have to pee into a cup to be employable. So I quit, ironically at the point when I really could have used it to help me maintain my calm at work. As a result, I have been written up for Insubordination twice.

   But now I'm not looking for a job anymore, so it's back to enjoying myself again. I'll probably wait until 4:20 on 420 for the sake of symmetry.

fuck work...my job sucks major ass. this is the reason i quit smoking as well. one to look for a new job and 2 to have a clearer head at work. i want to kill when im not completely sabotaging myself emotionally.

its to the point where every failure in my life is narrated by my boss in my head.

this deserves its own thread.

best,

When I was at KSU (early '80s), my friends and I used to go to a blues club at the weekends. The management turned a blind eye to people smoking pot on the premises. We used to like to dance to the music, so we called it our "shake and bake" nights out. :D

I never did well with pot. At all.

I never did either. I never liked smoking pot. Did like my booze though, until I gave that up.

Marinol is extremely fashionable among the disability set here in SoFla; it's the closest to hashish I've yet to find.

MJ gives me headfucks; Marinol and/or hash gives me that lovely body buzz without the delusional, paranoid drama I get from weed. Unfortunately, real hash has been essentially unavailable here forever; fortunately, Marinol is plentiful and either cheap or free, presuming you have the "right" sorta friends.

Try it; it's a whole new sort of W I L D: really!

Hash is what's mainly available on the Rock, but it's not very good. It's known as "soapbar" because there are so many fillers in it and it's not unusual to find little bits of plastic in it. Give me a nice sticky bud any time over a piece of soapbar.

That bites that they put 'additives' in the hash there.  I would stay away from it too.  All this talk about partaking has me wanting some sticky bud too Ann.  One or two good hits would do it for me and then I would be ready to laugh and talk some major shit!

It sure does. You can occasionally find the real thing (soapbar is the real thing too, but with loads of crap in it) but it's fairly rare.

When I was on the hep C treatment, a friend of mine gave me a huge block of really good, clean hash for a present (he knew why I needed it) and it was just heaven. I made it last for ages mainly using it for pain relief, but I will admit to getting stoned out of my box on it a couple times. I just couldn't resist! ;D

Oh, and for some reason nobody here calls it hash - they call it "cannabis resin". I think hash sounds much better!

   Wife just left back to her place so it's time to get my session on now.  I've got some BOB playing in the cd player and I'm ready to reason with myself. :-*

Cool Sunday
