    Did you run a house of ill repute by hand?

    Here in MO we now have medicinal weed and next door in IL they have recreational. A friend in VA sent me a link to a website that lists dispensaries. Out of curiosity I took a look at the prices. Yes, it's a bit expensive but I don't know if the price includes tax. If not how could anyone afford it?

        here we go comparing weed to booz . Like I said earlier come on over and I show you the ashes of my son and grandson who started with weed . they used to have fights over it . BTW, since Masshole legalized weed you can still get better crap on the street than a store and cheaper too .

          Sorry, I don't buy the gate way drug theory. If that were the case 65 % of the teens in the 60's would have been eradicated. I think some people have an addictive, or daring personality and need to see whats around the corner. If you lose someone close to an OD than you may disagree, that's understood, but we are all made up differently. I lost a friend back in the day, but I remember he liked going a little further with most things, and sometimes bad things happen to good souls. I see benefits on the medical side to the drug for many. Recreational use for adults, why not. You'll pay a premium with all the tax on it but if it's your thing knock yourself out. I wouldn't put a penny in stocks with the feds f#@$ing things up.

              If you believe in the gateway drug theory booze and cigarettes probably came before weed.
              In all honesty it's not the drug, it's the person who chooses to use it.
              One thing about drugs on the street-you don't know what is in them.

                I feel for anyone who has had tragedy around any kind of drug abuse! but realistically we could probably all name 10 people that have died to alcohol-related incidents, I lost one last weekend my nephew and his Young Bride killed on on a Harley after drinking no other vehicle was involved and he had been riding for over 10 years just poor judgment. So talking about the dangers of marijuana when you have a society slaughtering each other on the highways and prisons full of people who made horrible choices while intoxicated on alcohol well it's not really even comparable.

                  This is the most profitable investment. Despite all the instability of the stock, you will still remain in the black. Cannabis is needed by most of the population, and therefore it will be constantly bought. For example, my entire entourage constantly buys various cannabis seeds at a bargain price and grows them at home. Only they don't sell it, as it requires a special permit and, in principle, a lot of fuss with the documents. But at the same time, they spend quite a lot of money on cannabis. So consider that you have secured a prosperous old age.

                  Funny how people keep saying thinks like "If you think weed is addictive, you are uneducated".... Really? If you think people can't get addicted to weed, you're the one who isn't educated and have probably only read the anecdotal evidence to support your desire to get high or give CBD to your dog.

                  If you want to become educated, talk to the people that deal with this stuff daily. Go to the psych ward at a hospital and ask about the effects. it's estimated that anywhere from 6 to 10 percent of users form a physical dependency... i.e. an addiction. When a forming brain, those less than roughly 25 years of age, is exposed to massive amount of THC, it inhibits the development of the pre-frontal cortex.

                  Here is an article that discusses it. The research talks about 16 and under, but the fact is the brain doesn't stop developing until much later.
                  Starting Age of Marijuana Use May Have Long-Term Effects on Brain Development - Center for BrainHealth

                  As far as it being a gateway drug, I think that's a "somewhat" unfair distinction because people can and do get addicted to many things. Personality plays a big part, but if you are doing it while young, then you cognitive abilities and reasoning are impared sometimes for life.

                  When you talk to the folks in the psych ward, ask them how many people have been diagnosed with a permanent psychosis... you'll be shocked and should be if the answer is more than 1. it happens.

                  if you think it's like drinking and out of your system quickly, again, educate yourself. THC is metabolized slowly and stored in fat cells. The only way to speed that up is heavy exertion. if you're a "casual" user, on average, it's in your system for 3 to 6 weeks depending on your activity level once you stop. A heavy user can have it in his/her system up to 120 days in some cases. That's an extreme case, but it does happen.

                  The pot today can be 27 to 30 times more potent than what the hippies at Woodstock had. This stuff is no joke and kids are getting access to it all the time.

                  Now, if you have read this far, awesome, because I want to make it clear, I believe there is a place for it, but not yet. It's finally becoming something serious science and studies are getting behind with both good and bad results. I'm convinced for every natural ailment, there is a natural treatment on this planet. Just makes sense to me. What bothers me is the cavalier attitude towards it all and the careless attitudes about it.

                  Finally, look into what they pot heads call "wax". It's a product of passing liquid butane over pot and extracting a substance that looks like ear wax. This can contain 75 to 90 percent of the THC in a concentrated form that is burned an inhaled.

                  This post isn't to spark debate, it's to raise some awareness and maybe prompt some of you to do some more research and maybe learn something. I have done mine, I won't debate anyone on this. Do your own research and make you're own decision but don't for a second believe it's harmless.

                    I find those that are against pot could probably benefit from it the most. Some uptight Mother fu*kers.

                                  You have both seen it. Doesn't matter what the topic is, someone will say something political and the thread will get taken right off the rails. There is a political section for a reason.

                                  I recall when the Reagan war on drugs started. I was in the USAF at the time and heard about some sailors that forgot to remove the tampions from the main guns of a battleship during target practice. Well they all died and guess what drug they found in the bloodstream? Never mix business with pleasure.

                                        You have obviously never been to an NCO club during "lunch" hours.

                                        Are you referring to the USS Iowa?

                                          Looked it up, the Iowa was 1989, this was around 1978 I recall.
