SURPRISE!! The laws they WILL be a changing. Iowa is trying to pass medical Marijuana. I hope they do. In the article i read today. It told the story of an 88 year old woman who wakes up with her morning coffee and new york times and a pipe bowl loaded with pot. It helps her arthritis. She threw out her prescription pain pills. The pot has no nasty side affects and helps with the pain. I'm not a big pot smoker or a drinker. But, i do smoke and drink,usually when out with friends. I prefer the pot. It makes me feel good. I still have control over myself. I can drive home and wake up feeling fine. If i had children. I'd feel better if they were out experimenting with pot over alcohol. I see one reason it's not legal is because the drug companies wouldn't make a profit off it. The other reason , people that are against it have never smoked it.
I have found that if i smoke it before i head out antiquing, I'm more focused. I think anything in excess is bad. Drinking and smoking or eating or texting or what have you is fine, if done within reason. What's all the hub-bub, bub.
One last thing, maybe when i have to go to a nursing home (Heaven forbid) they will be passing out joints and hallucinogenics. The ONLY way to pass the time away in a nursing home. The music they will be playing every morning will be "Stayin Alive" by the bee gees. Disco baby!!
