    Or rather, vaporize some weed so you don't get lung cancer while you're preventing Alzheimers...
    Weird. Your short-term memory is hosed, but your long-term memory is aided by THC?

    Skunk's gonna be the most lucid 80yo around... ;)

    I just saw this and wondered who'd be the first to thread it. :D Looks like Willie's gonna remember a whole lot for a long time.

    Just think the Republican Party could win a HUGE victory by decriminalizing personal use and cultivation, then nobody would care what they do ;)

    Just think the Republican Party could win a HUGE victory if the reverted back to true conservative values.

    Yes yes yes yes, mary jane will be legalized soon enough. I remember my old college professor saying many tobacco companies have already trade-marked names for when that day comes. One of 'em was Tijuana Golds?

    In the end, you can't remember what you did years ago or 10 minutes ago but you feel good for a while. Of course, my dad's memory loss leaves him sitting there thinking about who knows what all day and he is rarely distressed that he can't remember.

    On the other hand, I heard something on the news about apple juice being quite helpful in preventing memory loss.

    It won't be legalized until corporate America can figure out a way to control
    the revenues.
    Circumventing taxation by growing your own will probably result in raids by
    ATF even though you have no intention of selling or distributing.


    The idea of "True Conservative Values" was lost when religion was allowed to influence the protections of the U.S. Constitution.

    Unfortunately those of us who are politically conservative are now being lumped
    together with "religious conservatives".

    In my view the protection of the Constitution is no longer the goal
    of these particular so called "conservatives".

    In fact, this faction of religious extremists, have done all they can to
    undermine the protections of the Constitution.

    On some political issues, "I wouldn't call Jesse Helms a Communist, but he's pretty damned liberal." Progressive Pall Malls ain't one of those issues. Ever since Nixon labelled it the War on Drugs, I've said it's more of a war on the Bill of Rights.

    It's not conjecture that marijuana relieves the nausea associated with chemotherapy. It's cold, hard fact. It's fact that heroin is the only thing that can relieve the pain associated with some types of cancer. The glaucoma thing has been known for a good while; now we learn of the benefits WRT OldTimer's disease.

    Do the folks up at Bolinas still raise that smooth, silky, really-potent stuff? :)
