This is SOME thread!
I've never heard of Lions Ear until tonite! I'll be googling it in a minute I suppose!
I have to put my 2 cents worth in i suppose....
I agree totally with you Beemaster. MJ should be legalized, without a doubt! I mean, Alcohol is legal,...but.....look at the damage it does! Health issues, car wrecks, violence, family colapse and bankruptcy! (Of course, I've NEVER had any of these problems....except for car wrecks, violence, health issues and being in the poorhouse almost).
I always kinda figured if its green, its not so bad..If its white(or brown, or black) and made by changing it from its original state you should stay away from it. :-P Then again, you have to consider medicines...then consider side effects.
Now, I've seen drunks all over the road..getting drunk is legal..being drunk in public or on the road isnt.
Smokin' a little weed just makes you drive slower and hunch over the steering wheel...and giggle alot!...and then, sleep good! ;)
Cancer patients SHOULD be ALLOWED to use it! Ive seen so many good things happen to sick people when using pot! :)
Salvia divinorum has some kind of benefits, I'm sure...Although, after reading about it on the internet it seems people (grown-ups like us) who try it say they believe EVERYBODY should at least try it once!. They also state that they have no desire to ever do it again.
Salvis divinorum is being pushed away by the govt. now.
Then you have the molds, the funguses,and the cacti that do tricky things to your mind.These are natural occuring things in nature too! I dont know what benefit they have to mankind but they sure were a BLAST when I was a teenager! On the other side of that coin I dont think I could ever do that kind of stuff again.I think that that kinda stuff(learning this after growing up) can be dangerous and harmful....If MY kid was to do what I did at his age I'd lock him up in a closet till he turned forty!(Not really, but i would kinda FREAK OUT!)
I dont know what it is about these plants...I like the idea of growing things that have "Secrets" in them. I'm too old to take full advantage of them, but theres still part of me that just wont grow up...Still a part of me that says," Go ahead....touch it....see if it bites."
Lions Ear,......Sounds pretty cool to me, Cindi! :-D
