    Well then puff puff give brother :D. Mrs. GK's mom suffered from alzheimer's before she passed, but she was not about to partake. My mom even said when my dad was sick that had she known, she would be ok with it.

    Alzheimer's is such a nasty disease - if weed can help then I am all for it

    Yeah, it's brutal and heartbreaking. When Mrs. GK and I would go up and visit mom, she didn't even recognize her own daughter. The only good part about is that she would hit on me ;). Mrs. GK would say "mother, this is my husband. You were at the wedding, remember?" Unfortunately she didn't :(

    It also just feels amazing. Try some CBD oil with a slightly higher THC content and throw on your favorite record. Tell me I’m wrong.

    BigC- I sell CBD oil with the highest allowable THC in it and have yet to find that amazing feeling you are talking about

    And I thought my memory problems were because of the weed.

    All of this is great news, but it is sad to think how more advanced the research could be if cannabis wasn't a schedule 1 drug for the past 50+ years.

    A possible cure could have been found decades ago.

    Again sad...

    To continue research they have to find a drug that mimics THC because they are limited to use the naturally produced compound in human trials.

    Maybe this will help get it fully legalized in Florida. It's amazing how much more tolerant people get when they find out there's something in it for them.

    I have stated many times on this board that if I had a disease where partaking would help alleviate the symptoms, I would buy a 6 foot bong and fire up. I wouldn't much care what the cops or the judge had to say about it either.

    &


    Yeah, me and Dr. Alzheimer go back a looooong ways. Grew up with the shit. Both my mom's parents had it, in succession no less--first Granpa' (abuelito), then Gramma (abuelita). They lived with us for years with A's D, before we'd finally surrender, and put them in a nursing home.

    I'd wake up in the mornings to go pee before school, and step in a puddle of pee. Then have to clean it up... I'd have to tell tall tales to coax my grandfather to the dinner table--tell him he was being summonsed to a business meeting...that sort of thing. Clean up spit, piss, shit, wipe their asses, all kinds of rudimentary, basic, fundamental stuff...

    Never really got to know them directly--at least not my grandpa; only had pieces of puzzles to put together with stories from their children (my parents, uncles, aunts), and older cousins, who knew them before they faded then disappeared, long before actually departing. Got to know my grandma' just a bit, but pretty superficially.

    ...then my aunt got it about 10-15 years ago, and began her fade....

    Now mom.

    Very sad. But whereas in my younger days, I (along with my bros) used to swear up and down that we'd die long before going A's (and lived and drank, partied and fought like we would)--I've come to see a latent beauty behind the ugly.

    I can now see the humanity, behind the blankness--the love that is coaxed from us, rather than that which they are no longer able to give.

    I believe God permits AD to take its course to test our love, to teach us humility, to remind us of what awaits us--the great and universal humbling (by a thousand different routes, all leading to the ultimate physical humbling--death)--and therefore to remind us how precious life itself is--especially all the time we take for granted, when we have our own--and our loved ones'--faculties even partially functional.

    I suppose I am a dense human being--in my case, it has taken me be the better part of 4 decades, and 4 loved ones...to receive this divine message--to learn the invaluable lesson--that my loved ones were being used by the Lord, to teach the rest of us, about love and life.

    jmho/fwiw.
