I am a firm believer in this natural plant given to us, I believe, by God.

For pain, for nausea, for inability to eat. I believe edibles and oil are the way to go.

Congratulations on making 150 posts, eddie. Well done.

You right in line in my thinking. Besides the obvious economical benefits, it would help a lot with chronic pain and many other aliments . Colorado has it and it has nit imploded yet but has been during rather well. I hope that our government sees the benefits and also help all the people that have been imprisoned over a plant.


Thanks for the kind words. Look for me on the forums

I have a MMJ card myself (and I live in a state where MMJ is only available for serious conditions). I am a firm believer in legalization across the board, but I also believe that there's a lot of misinformation regarding MJ's medicinal benefits. I am so tired of articles hyping it up as a cure-all. It's simply a plant, and like the thousands of plants used around the world for medicinal purposes, it has certain effects that can help certain conditions.

I never tried mj, but wonder if it would be better alternative for anxiety, to which I take benzos (which kind of scare me)

If MJ helps you with anxiety, it could be a better alternative than benzos, which are physically addictive. But MJ does not help all people with anxiety. It actually causes anxiety for many people. It's not like benzos, which directly slow down your brain by increasing GABA signalling. MJ has an interesting combination of effects, and the only way to determine how it affects you is to try it. For anxiety, an indica strain would probably be a better choice than sativa.

Happy Holidays All..

Depending on all the different strains of MM they have on the market now days some are specifically hybrid for Anxiety but it is a trial and error depending on each persons own chemistry. MJ does help me with anxiety and even though I still take the occasional Benzo's I'd probably be taking them by the hand full and be addicted to them which are hell to get off of once you become dependent. MM on the other hand is far less addictive than Benzo's at least in my opinion. MM is also a far less dangerous drug with a lot of other medical benefits and when was the last time you have heard of someone overdosing on MJ?? M for going on 8 years now.J has helped me keep my seizures in check from my PTSD going back to 2010.

Peace ALL

Pro. As someone who was suspicious of this for quite a while, I was very surprised when I moved to a state where the option was open and I've been really surprised at how many ailments this is good for, by itself or as an adjunct. In fact, I was moved to try it when I saw how it was helping other people I eventually got to know. And considering all the uses that you ca derive from the source (not to mention economics, etc), I'm all for it.

It's up to the gr0w rz. to create strains that are not just trying to compete with the competition. That's the problem. They think, more is better, funneled into a powerhouse will get more customers. In my state it's fully legal, I see the pro's and con's of what it's done to my city. I've grown up here my whole life and the influx of out of towners really put a kink in everyday life, in a few years, hopefully things will settle down, with other States passing similar laws. Growth of the city is obvious, not all due to the new plant available, but it has started an economic monster. I hope after a few years, places will go back to old school type ways and the fad with the dangerous or overly powered straains lessen. It seems to be helping people, but we've had more deaths on our highways in the last few years than ever before.. Cell phones or this ? Or BOTH? DON'T do BOTH while you are driving sheeshhhhh!

I live in a state where MM is legal and have a doctor's prescription for it. Our narrow minded Legislature would never approve MM so the public went over their heads and amended our State Constitution to bypass them. We have to do this I my state because the Legislature is overwhelming extremely conservative but the state as a whole is not.

The Legislature's reaction was quite predictable, make it more difficult for voters to directly amend our State Constitution. My state was gerrymandered years ago and this is why the political establishment can be so disconnected from half the state and not worry about losing an election. Undemocratic and not a sane way to establish policy.
