That part about the natives being hostile to "immigrants" from other states is a real thing though.


This could be partially due to many of the immigrants trying to import California's politics, to the detriment of Colorado.


I think they hate immigrants from Texas even more than the Californian ones.

I fuckin' love weed. Illegal marijuana is ridiculous. I will always choose cannabis over alcohol, I think it's healthier, less function inhibiting, has better physiological effects, smells better and tastes better.

Agreed. Unfortunately I'm about to start working for the federal gov't. I had my last puff almost a year ago.

Pax by Ploom, and some medium or high grade weed.

The answer to my post chemo nausea.

When my mom was going through that she had something called "Marinol", a synthetic. It really helped. When she passed I donated the rest of her supply (a year's worth) to a clinic in DC... completely unaware that the value was over $10,000 in 1996. Could have paid for my college education Walter White style.

When I went through chemo and radiation 2 years ago, I tried every prescription med they had, but nothing worked. Finally, my doctor just said, "do you have access to any marijuana?"

Fast forward 2 years later, and I'm back on chemo...and on weed.

Sure would be nice if FL would pass the medical marijuana law this year.

What's the difference between cannabis and marijuana?
Never heard it called cannabis in the US before

That's just me being weird. I've come to generally dislike the term marijuana, and titling this thread "Weed" or "Pot" seemed too vague.

Cannabis is the plant, marijuana is the bud you harvest from it.

Some places its standard proceedure to have cops on standby when someone passes away (in say, a hospice) so they can verify the destruction of all pharmaceuticals. Talk about bad bedside manner.

Scott, glad it helped you. :-)

Medical has it's merits despite the droves of people that are using it as an excuse to get high. That's what is maddening to me and makes me absolutely HATE the people that self diagnosed (pretty much) to get their card.

Doctors were prescribing a specific number of plants per patient rather than how many grams per day. Etc.

There's no law specifying the size of the plants.

My doctor is really cool, and I think he felt like we tried every legal method and at that point.

He knew my history as a musician, and based on our previous conversations I don't think he felt too uncomfortable with the conversation.

If I recall correctly, he pretty much just asked if I had access to "the natural remedy to anti nausea" without coming out and saying marijuana specifically, but we both knew what he meant.

The Republican Party's Pot Dilemma

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.—Christopher Beach was trying to defend keeping marijuana illegal to a roomful of conservatives, and it was not going well.

When Beach insisted the drug war has not been a complete failure, laughter rippled through the crowd.

When he said governments sometimes have to protect people from themselves, there were groans and boos.

One after another, audience members stood to quibble with his statistics and accuse him of bad faith. As the discussion drew to a close with yet another hostile blast in his direction, Beach mumbled into his microphone, "This is just getting more fun."

Beach's panel at the Conservative Political Action Conference, titled "Rocky Mountain High: Does Legalized Pot Mean Society's Going Up In Smoke?," was ostensibly a debate. I attended expecting to find conservatives divided on the question, which seems to pit Republican cultural conservatism against the party's ascendant libertarian strain.

But the discussion—which pitted Beach, a producer for the Morning in America radio show hosted by former Education Secretary Bill Bennett, against Mary Katharine Ham, a conservative blogger and Fox News contributor—turned out to be surprisingly one-sided.

"What's your answer—to just keep arresting people, ruining lives?" a middle-aged man named Leo Dymowski asked Beach heatedly. "How are we going to get out of this mess by continuing a completely failed policy?"
