from Fox: Preliminary report indicates legal use of M J in CO (it's legal there)counteracts opiate addiction which is HUGE problem in U.S. I remember well around 2005 when my late wife was told by her family Dr that then current protocol said patients need not be in pain and promptly wrote a 'script for 5 mg, 6x day with a 90 days, refills 3. I can say without equivocation she had no more pain especially when she added in Merlot or a martini or two. Yep, no pain, totally legal.

In San Francisco, back in the sixties, just about everybody in their twenties and thirties was smoking weed. The only negative effect I saw, was people eating too much. I suspect that the liquor lobby was responsible for making it illegal.

Pretty well everywhere, liquor does odd thing to some people, I mostly see aggressive behavior from others that have had too much to Drink and stupidity in their conversations, on the other hand speaking of what I see in people that are high (on mj or hash) are quite interesting conversations, creative low voice tones and the odd pause to order more Sweets! Lol can't wait for July 1/18

We live in Redneck country now, so I've not seen any blatant dope smoking around here. If there is any, it's being done discreetly.

With the ring of Cliff around it, Billings used to have its very own smog issues (late 60's early 70's chuckle)

Billings? Really? I spent the night there once, a few years ago, and it struck me as a pretty straight, blue-collar kind of town. You'd expect more smoke in college towns like Missoula or Bozeman.

One hour away is lively - Ever hear of the Red Lodge Five? I lived there in 70s and 80s and my Ex and my daughter are still there and with two grandsons. I can say without equivocation there is "smoke on the Mountains".

Is that a band? I've never been to Red Lodge, but I've been wanting to go, since there's a great pottery place there.

Potter place is there, across the street from my daughter's store, The Village Shoppe. Wait until spring to go there. Go from Laurel (I90)to Red Lodge and then over the Beartooth Pass to Cooke City and take a tour of the park. Beautiful country.

The Red Lodge Five was MJ grow group in grow lighted attics of mid town, Red Loge. Then they got caught the ACLU and Playboy mounted their defense, I think they got off. Long story.

Used to be some very nice Trout fishing in the area as well.

Friends father had a cabin on one of the creeks to the west of Red Lodge.

It is kinda like having the elusive Cilantro Gene.

There are about 30% of us that it just doesn't do squat for.
No euphoria, just head in the vise migraines, and cottonmouth.:-|

I was on opiates for 15 years, to help me with my arthritis. Once weed became legal in Oregon I started taking a high CBD tincture several times a day... no effect on my brain, just my joints (no pun intended). I weaned myself off the opiates, and am more pain free now than I ever was on the opiates.

I buck it up. Not so stupid as to try and get it by the powers that be. It takes the better part of a week for the pain to reestablish itself, so a two week trip can get dicey but usually we're someplace warm and dry, and that helps in and of itself. And fortunately, it only takes a few hours for the stuff to start working again.

of course, no one would ever recommend bringing your own. Especially now that vape pens and cartridges are so discreet. Wouldnt you just buy your own when you are in Zihua?

Thanks, I spend 3 months in Zihuatanejo, as much as I would love to get off the other stuff never could last that amount of time without pain relief.The rules are also still complicated between the states.

How bloody stupid is society to condemn THC when it is so much more effective than current pain meds and so much less harmful. I have to believe that there are corporate interests involved here. The big drug companies don't want to lose all their "drug addicts". That would be a big financial woe for them.
