Absolutely, from what i could tell watching my dad die at the VA its already everywhere. They already over medicate with opoids and weed would be a much healthier choice.

Don't worry Jeff Sessions isn't coming for your weed.
He's coming for the weeds though.

Yes. I met a Va. health counselor. Over dependence on drugs is an epidemic at the Va.

Everyone should, at least everyone who’s an adult.

I have been enjoying the legalization of weed in CA. Pretty sure it's less harmful than alcohol. Especially if you eat rather than smoke it.

Messes with short term memory, but that effect is transient.

Short term memory is overrated, especially in the short term.

100% sure it's less harmful than alcohol, regardless of the consumption method. Physically speaking.

Been to Red Rocks the last two summers for shows. CO and the shops are amazing. I'm way more of a drinker, but grabbed some edibles before the show one night and I only had 2 beers the entire night at the show. It was amazing. Light show helped of course. Without weed, I'd be easily 6 craft beers deep with doors at 7pm and show over at 11:30pm. Honesty, probably closer to 8 beers in that time.

I never really did it much at all, just a few times when younger, but been experimenting with it as of late. Definitely a substitute for alcohol, or at least a gateway to much less of it. Helps you relax pretty great, even relaxes your bowels if you smoke enough!

I've been part of some of the most creative bong and smoking device making sessions on the planet. That was the fun of it when I was younger. I so much more enjoy edibles now. Don't have them often or even smoke often, but it's still enjoyable for me.

I'm rather flummoxed by anyone that would be against weed. The stoner thing is a complete and utter stereotype that pegs 90% of people that smoke/use with the 10% that flaunt it and act like a stoner. I could walk into most situations completely stoned and most wouldn't even know it.

I had a huge gap between college and recently (except for an unfortunate incident in Amsterdam). I was kind of jealous of friends with medical cards lately, so got one myself, and found out that I don't really like smoking it, too harsh, even if the effect is much faster. Also, edible dosages are nicely labelled in milligrams these days. Helps to get it right so you feel something, but not way too much. 5mg is at the edge of perception for me. 10mg is about right. 20mg is unpleasant.

Takes forever to kick in, up to 2 hours, and lasts a long time, so best done at night or on the weekend. You're basically no good for anything except creative work. And sex. Hadn't realized that it's definitely an aphrodisiac.

Best part is that it's so incredibly cheap by comparison with alcohol. Which I'm sure is one reason the beer distributors lobbied against legalization. I think full legalization in CA kicks in in January, and then CA will be like Colorado.

Yeah, edibles can be tricky. I'm a human drug dumpster though. Mushrooms, acid, and weed consumed via mouth I've had zero problems. I can eat/have any of it. Never been off my rocker and mushrooms specifically I've had large quantities in one sitting. You wouldn't know I was tripping.

I won't take a Tylenol or ANYTHING a doctor prescribes unless I'm on my deathbed. I do think pharmaceuticals and the opioid issue will make it much easier for weed to become legal in other places, hopefully. Pain sucks. Just not sure why doctors now prescribe something that most people don't have the physical capability of resisting after just one round of meds. It's going to get worse before it gets better unfortunately.

Because they like their free Hawaiian vacations (for a “conference”), their free three hour lunches, and white envelopes.

Use CBD Oil to bounce back. Like if you have an interview tomorrow and need to be sharp. Using CBD one day before clears any mental grogginess you may have.

I can't do edibles, they make my stomach turn somersaults.

A better question is ‘why aren’t Americans allowed to use cannabis?’

I see the people that say “Leftism is a disease” and “liberals ruined everything “, breaking Federal Law bigly in their homestate. Must be nice to actually live Free, you ought remember that you have the privilege solely because of Liberals, right?

Any state where the liberals still haven’t fought for your right to utilize the cannabis flower, people live in constant fear of being ruined by the police, and having all their assets seized

Yes, because of Liberals, but NOT because of Leftists! Those fucktards want more government agent jack boots, not less!
I think I’m closer to a classical Liberal than anything else. But i do enjoy seeing Leftists frustrated by anyone including conservatives.
IMHO Leftists are the next worst thing to Communists and Fascists. And Communism and Fascism are the iron-hard government bread that fits around the shit sandwich of Totalitarianism.

Me too

All the rest of the terms you used have been infected and may as well have no meaning at this point

Who are the leftists?
Who are the conservatives?
Who are the fascist?
Who are the communists?
