    I smoke a bowl of hemp every night before bed. It's amazing what it does for my neuropathy and I sleep like a baby.

    My wife uses oil and capsules for back pain, no prescription needed for what we use, completely legal in all 50 states.

    I have several conditions that qualify for medicinal use but my employer can give drug tests at any given time.....I don't want to open that can of worms.

    Quick story
    Back in the 70's I met a woman who had recently moved to Gainesville from Arizona. She was working on her PHD at UF. She had recently undergone abdominal surgery and was in recovery. She used cannabis for pain relief; prescription meds zonked her out and she could not focus on her PHD work. She had a script for obtaining cannabis in Arizona but not in Florida. She asked me if I could help her obtain a large quantity of cannabis. I did. I had to break the law in order to help her.

    It was the most weed I had ever been around. I was very nervous. Could have gone to jail for several years for my "crime."

    I bought a pound once. Had moved to Houston after graduating from UF. Arranged the deal through a friend living in St. Augustine, and drove from Houston to get it. Fun trip - the whole way over and back on I-10 that Arlo Guthrie song was playing in my head. Back then the speed limit was 55 and everybody was into CB radios. Needless to say I drove a lot faster getting there than I did driving back.

    Good times

    1) J Edgar and his crowd were able to incorrectly miss-classify cannabis.
    2) Crazy to incarcerate persons that use in moderation IMO
    3) People use anyway, stop ruining reputations and jobs over this

    In fairness, this blunder wasn't entirely Ronny's fault. He was shown a Tulane study which turned out to be ever so slightly flawed. Turned out the masks they were using to give MJ to the subject monkeys were suffocating them. So the correct statement would have been one MJ cigarette and prolonged oxygen deprivation is equal . . .
    Moral: Always read the fine print before you believe a study.

    Let's burn about 100 of these things in a large circle and talk about it. I mean, for just the medical benefit of course.

    Nobody gets incarcerated for using, it's the dealing that's the issue. I am for legalizing but this talking point just isn't true.

    IT doesn't matter what congress does, b/c the GPD watches every move the student athletes makes.

    A most interesting and informative thread. Thanks for posting.

    On other thing. I have always wondered if marijuana is the plant the farmers used to call loco weed because if cattle got into it they acted strangely.

    Anybody know?

    Cannabis is occasionally called loco weed as a street name but here is what you are referring to --
