That stuff will RUIN people's lives. Talk about a "gateway drug"!


Oh yeah and it's not the only one. Xanax. Any type of methadone. Yup, it's legal. A LOT of mind altering pharmaceuticals that are perfectly legal. Also perfectly destructive. We're not talking Prince Valium here. This stuff has gotten WAY dangerous.

This is really blowing up...

Maybe a lot of people feel the same way she does over the legalization issue?


Why not legalize oxycontin?


Can't be done. It's already legal and ready for purchase at your local pharmacy with a doctors prescription.


It should be for prescription only. The whole thing should be through the pharmacy regulated as a medication.

Totally agreed.

But - pot on the other hand....hmmm....not that much of a problem.

Yes here in WA welfare money is going to pot, to stoners who do NOTHING productive and suck on the public teat. I liken it to an alcoholic who starts the day drinking and ends it the same way. This marijuana issue is far from settled and it just makes lazy people even lazier. Except they are lazy with attitudes now. Legalized pot means EBT money going up in smoke, SSI going to the dealers, etc. Even though it's legalized in WA, 80% of MJ trade is done by illegal dealing. But that's part of the overall plan, dumb people down and keep them stoned so they don't care what is really happening in the world, until it's too late.

With just what we have lying around the house we could make a few hundred.....

Do you actually have scientific backing for that? Not an anti-pot or conservative blog?

Erm, I call BULL CRAPOLA on this claim. Not true. Not true at all.


The effects of a cannabis patch are drastically different than most traditional methods of ingestion, such as smoking. Typically, when a cannabis user eats an edible or smokes, the effects of the dosage are felt immediately and wane over time. Instead, the medicine is steadily released, creating a sustaining effect that lasts up to 12 hours.

I met the crew of Mary’s Medicinals, the innovators behind these patches, at the first ever Marijuana for Medical Professionals conference earlier this month in Denver, Colorado. Many of the presenters and doctors in attendance were eager to discuss how they have been integrating the cannabis patches into patient care regimens to great success.


Have a read of someone who has tried the various "patches" of different strains.
www.alternet.org...

Within minutes I found myself bubbling over with energy and excitement. I went for a long brisk walk so as not to waste the uncharacteristically high level of energy. When I got home I was able to approach all tasks in front of me with a clarity and eagerness I have never felt in my adult life. I can see how this patch would be effective for pretty much anyone, not just someone suffering from a mood disorder or attention deficit. By the end of the day I realized I had not felt one hint of pain the entire day, I had felt so good I hardly noticed just how good I was really feeling.


So much for the lazy freeloaders theory. It's a lie.

Perhaps do some more research instead of spouting the "party line" about how awful it is?

Because.....

it helps people cope with this stupid world??? With their socially-related stress and physical pain, and depression, anxiety, and inertia?

"Common knowledge", eh?
meh.
Ignorant propaganda, I'd call it.

No dude it's the truth and I live around a bunch of them...I hate it because I have to see it, smell it on the elevator, find dropped pipes on the floor, and watch exactly what these people do with their lives. I can point out different ones and tell you what day of the month they get their EBT or welfare check, what street corner they smoke their weed on, how often they do it, yeah these are the same ones going around knocking on doors begging for sugar or coffee at the end of the month, or cheese or some other thing, because they spent all their income on weed. You can't live in the same building for a period of years without noticing some of this stuff. And if it is happening here it is happening other places. This is one of the "nicer" low income units in my city. Many of the people here never worked a day in their life, all they do is collect handouts and get high.


You've got no room to call B.S.
OMG high level of energy? Cannabis patch? What dream world are YOU living in?

I hate to break this to you but you just live in a crappy area. Pipes? Weed smokers don't leave those lying around. Crackheads....yeah. You're talking about the wrong thing here man. Hell, I wouldn't live there.

I don't think it's really quitting when you are fired, but good for her it was dumb to fire her (which I presume since she since "not that I really have a choice, but f*** it, i quit") then put her on the air.

Erm, yes I do....I was a "substance abuse counselor" for years.

The "dream world" where people know that different strains of pot give you focus and energy, and it doesn't cost your entire EBT check. For heaven's sake - it's really NOT that expensive!

Yeah, as intrepid said: You are thinking of crack or meth or some crap like that.

Pot? NO.
And, yes, I am familiar with users - and have been for 30+ years. You are mistaken.
Pot is the LEAST of our worries nationally.

Wow someone else who has to defend his point of view to the extent of making excuses for others. No it's not a crappy area, it may be a crappy building but not area. And weed residue has a unique smell. I know about crackheads and I wouldn't live around them either....weedheads are getting almost as bad....

Let me explain something to you...when you cannot smoke inside your building, and you have to smoke your weed outdoors, the more you smoke the more trips you're going to be making down the elevator every day to go to your smoking spot outside. Therefore the higher chance your pipe might fall out of your pocket. And if you are STONED there is a pretty good chance of that happening. Don't try and tell me different. Now do that in an apartment building with 53 apartments with children, and it's not really a good thing. I hate to break it to you.

Um. Therefore....NO. Wow. I'm sorry you hate your neighbors, but you really need to do some more research.
And stop calling me "dude", please.

I am a female professional, and I KNOW what I'm talking about. So yes - I am telling you "different."

a reply to: BuzzyWigs I'm a retired male professional who also knows what he's talking about, but has sense enough to know when he's outnumbered in a certain discussion. So I'm going to bow out of it. Real life experience is what I go by. I'll send my neighbors your way, you would probably hit it off really good.

Well, you didn't bother to say what your "profession" is - but did say that you live in a low-income building (which lodgings are problematic in any case - all sorts of "disabled" people on Section 8) - but....No offense intended. I just think you are not very savvy on drug use.


Well done. Better to bow out when your points aren't sticking. I've had to do it numerous times.
Have a great evening!


Real life experience is what I go by.

Wow! Me, too!!!
