OK John, that can of worms opened for you. I will do it, got nuthin' to lose. Mary Jane, beautiful. I don't smoke that stuff, but am surrounded constantly by it, outside.....I do not care one hoot nor a hollar if it is around me. And I actually don't mind if I smell it either, I kind of like that burnt smell, something nice about it. Horses like the smell of pot, I know that too. I do not like the feeling of being high on it anymore. Yes, I smoked tons of it many years ago, (now when was that, can barely remember). Yes we are mostly adults, we can speak freely. Marijuana -- I have done lots of research on it, I am informed. It is extremely powerful stuff when it comes to relieving pain, very, very effective. If anyone is in extreme pain, I would encourage them to immediately find a good dealer, or better still, go to their doctor and get a Rx for medicinal marijuana. The marijuana obtained by a doctor's prescription is a particularly controlled substance and I would venture is the highest quality that can be purchased, clean, cut with nothing else, as is much of the pot nowadays.
Yes John, if your Mother would have been one that could have opened up her mind to pot not being just "dope", it could have taken her to a place where any pain that she was experiencing could have been diminished drastically. But such is not the way with some people, it is dope, and they cannot see beyond that. Period. It is a cryin' shame.
I agree with what that person said about being in a safer position driving down the road with 10 smokers high than 10 drinkers drunk. Neither should be on the road, but if I had to make a choice, that would be mine and I would make it. Anyways, my thoughts here, probably a huge can of worms, I know many do not feel this way about any kind of mind alteration, be it alcohol, marijuana..........have a wonderful and most awesome day, life, and great health.
