I want it to be legal so when I'm 75 I can get stoned and sit around watching The Price is Right hosted by that kid Manny from Modern Family.

Not the least bit surprised. Not even one healthcare professional in my doctor's practice (~12+ docs and a couple of LPNs) will write a script for MM. That's likely to be true all over the area, so of course patients will go where they've heard they can get a card. Add to that all the people who want their card just to get a free legal pass and those numbers will be ridiculously high, pun intended.

Exactly. The disconnect with the hypocrisy is damn near palpable.

Magic mushrooms lift severe depression in trial

A hallucinogenic chemical found in magic mushrooms has successfully lifted severe depression in previously untreatable patients.

Scientists at Imperial College London induced intense psychedelic trips in 12 people using high doses of the banned substance psilocybin.

A week after the experience all the volunteers were depression-free, and three months later five still had no symptoms of the condition.

Supposedly used to treat cluster headaches, too.

But their most important medical use is the aiding in the death of human ego.

Psilocybin or lsd (or ex)?

It's a gateway drug, LG. One moment you're enjoying a spliff with your homies and the next you're offering bj's for bath salts.

Colorado marijuana sales surge to $1 billion in first 10 months of year

The state has raked in $49.7 million in taxes so far this year. The first $40 million goes for school construction projects with anything over that going to the state's public school fund.

The tipping point has been reached, it's just a case of passing the laws.

For now yes. That's not uncommon that the States lead the way.

No way. You shed your desire for subconscious padding of the ego. Essentially eliminating insecurity and fear of rejection (at the most fundamental levels). At least for a period of time. That's why psychonauts recommend a psilocybic mushroom experience quarterly.

It's been my most profound experience. Had never been as happy as I am after wards. The article doesn't specify but I believe that's what they're referring to. What I interpreted as a expansion of capacity for understanding and perspective they describe it in body chemistry terms.

Good ol' Mr. Nice Seeds!

Have you tried wax or any of that weird stuff, Anti? I've avoided it firstly because the apparatus looks strange... but seems like a bit of work. I stick mainly to flowers and the occasional edible (I like the hard candies).

Uh oh....

Mysterious illness tied to marijuana use on the rise in states with legal weed

NEW YORK -- For more than two years, Lance Crowder was having severe abdominal pain and vomiting, and no local doctor could figure out why. Finally, an emergency room physician in Indianapolis had an idea.

“The first question he asked was if I was taking hot showers to find relief. When he asked me that question, I basically fell into tears because I knew he had an answer,” Crowder said.

The answer was cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, or CHS. It’s caused by heavy, long-term use of various forms of marijuana. For unclear reasons, the nausea and vomiting are relieved by hot showers or baths.

“They’ll often present to the emergency department three, four, five different times before we can sort this out,” said Dr. Kennon Heard, an emergency room physician in Aurora, Colorado.

SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.
