I don't get it, in the 70's they nailed you to the city wall for weed, now they have weed stocks...s.t.r.a.n.g.e. w.o.r.l.d.
what I really don't get is how when weed against the law, here was alot of it in the 70's...
now half the states are legal and they need weed factories? how much weed can people smoke?
I vape about 1/8 a month. I'm guessing a lot goes to concentrates and edibles.
If it were legal in Kansas, I would grow and try so many different strains and ratios and products to find that one that fits best.
I remember the ole brick weed from back in the day.

The largest growing market is people (mostly men) in their 50s and 60s, people who didn't smoke much after college or their 20s because getting in trouble with the law wasn't worth the high. Now, we do it to cover our pain, and we no longer give a shit if it's legal in any one particular spot as long as we can buy it in another.

I smoked weed starting in the mid 70's..alot of folks did, thats why zepplein, skynard and floyd got big.
in the 80's I kinda got into a rut of being constantly high,,,during the whole 80's...
but we had to do alot of work to buy the stuff, not walk into a store...:/
in the 90's I quit, cause, hell I got high off not being high...lol

I don't think alot of weed is good for a person, maybe a lil to unwind (like alcohal)
I only know 1 person with a legit reason to smoke weed constantly, he would go into convulsion, and what weed does is slow the electrons firing in the brain, this helped him stop getting convulsions

I think weed might be ok once on a friday if your fishing or watching a movie, but if done alot it dumbs a person down...and if someone is on weed they might try worse stuff, it takes that guard down...
now the worse stuff in the 70's was coke or acid,,,,,but now they have meth and fentanyl...so thats a problem.
then the real problem is folks get on drugs and start talkin bout being multiple gendered...:/

so I don't think weed should be legal, but it shouldn't be 11 years in prison with no priors..
you want to keep kids off it, and have plenty of folks not smoking weed so the US can be competitive..

It's not something new. People have been using cannabis for thousands of years. You probably can relate to this. You remember back during prohibition where you were still drinking even though it was "illegal." Correct? You had to deal with the bad booze and laying low for the popo. After the repeal of prohibition, you were able to by better quality and safer alcohol. Yay for freedom!

Fast forward to today. We all know that lots of people use marijuana. Most of us don't care and would like to make it legal for adults to use, if they so choose to. Just like back in them prohibition days. Remember? Got tired of hiding from the revenuer, I'll bet.

I guess I'm just saying for folks to be carefully with weed cause it can be a creeper...just like alcohol
some folks can control it and for some it gets out of hand..

I'm for individual freedoms. Whether the US is less competitive isn't of my concern.
Amphetamines have been around for quite a while. Troops during the wars were hopped up on Benzedrine.
Clandestine meth chemists were replaced by Mexican cartels due to the lack of available ingredients in the US.
Fentanyl is cheap and is used to cut drugs, causing many to OD. Side effect of the drug war.
Floyd and Zepp are still great on weed. :)

Now we have Spice and designer drugs that are 10s to 100s more potent than cannabis. Cat and mouse as ones get banned, they tweak the formula.

Just smoke it in your house. Just back from Vegas and the whole place smells like the inside of a bong. I can only imagine going down to the CWS and dealing with that odor.

mine or yours? Does it make it safer on the highways? Is it OK to have anyone doing work for you to be "high" or not? The reason for drinking at age 21 is because of what it does to the brain and the same goes for pot. There are more and more studies that are indicating the negative side of pot.

But lets cling to our rights to do drugs of any kind. I guess one should just move to Oregon. And while we are at it, have the state pay for them.

Everyone has the right or personal freedom to be stupid. Its when it affects others that common sense gets in the way.
With this logic, what’s your take on wearing a mask during a respiratory pandemic? Seriously curious.
