    How Will the Upcoming Election Impact Marijuana Legislation?
    How Will the Upcoming Election Impact Marijuana Legislation?Have you ever heard of Samuel R. Caldwell or Moses Baca? Well, don't worry about it. You're probably not alone.According to federal files, Caldwell, 58, was the first person to have been convicted of selling marijuana in the United States. In fact,...

    Super illuminating Randy! Learned a lot from you about the history behind all of this.

    It's probably not the root of all evil, but it seems like the classification itself is a huge obstacle. I don't mean classifying marijuana as this or that schedule drug. I mean, why are we in the business of (politically) classifying drugs at all? What does the drug itself have to do with anything? If there were a few marijuana buds hanging out on the sidewalk unattended, would they be arrested because they are dangerous?

    There's a difference between someone smoking pot at home and watching Netflix, and someone using pot to get people high and abuse them. It's the same pot. The person and their actions are different.

    #2 Right! Weed smokers are not aggressive (unless you´re a candy bar)

    Interesting read @Randy Keho , I've known many alcoholics and weed smokers and quite frankly I prefer the later. Weed smokers don't even cause half the trouble that alcohol users do and yet they are the criminals.....

    We had this discussion before and the scientist and anesthesiologist in me states that yes. Medical Marijuana has proven uses, and the NIH and private sector need to "upgrade" to higher standards that all researchers use. No surprise on the DEA - nor the FDA for that matter. Great News Share - feel free to ping me on public news matters, my friend. Love to keep updated & my friends like that, too! Pinned, Tweeted, Shared all about! Thanks~

    #14 I live in a marijuana growing mecca in Northern California. The dispensaries in southern California and other places often come here to buy their stock.

    It all depends on the grower however most growers agree to get higher yield with a better high for lack of a better term, you need to avoid chemicals at all costs it screws with the flavor and the effect. You can even get snobbier about it with the difference between outdoor and indoor. Organic outdoor just tastes better.

    You can never replace or imrpove what mother nature perfected no matter how hard we might try.

    #11 Well, how about that? #12 And @Max🐝 J. Carter brings up a very good-related matter. I've worked in the Clinic writing 'ok's ' for medical marijuana, and I've visited (but I 👀didn't inhale👀 yeah, that's the ticket!) the dispensing shops... I've talked to the growers. Yes, Max, sativa or indigo, the truly perfect manner to dispense medical marijuana is to get the correct ratios of each type of ingredient. And the growers are Joe Smith in his garage down the street with a license to grow in the State of California. So do they use pesticides? Who knows what's in it, really. Great point!

    #10 @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, that makes you the one person we just helped, and it's further validation that "culture change," and sticking my nose out in the green can still (thank God) be a good thing. I've found that if I just follow my heart and don't listen to chatter, I say what I think is right. What others POOF! (pun intended), it just doesn't matter. I'm holding the cold, dead hand that I don't want to hold any longer. It HAD to be death by lung cancer at retirement with a 501K in 1985 (oh, and I remember when Retirement Age was 55)...but it just doesn't have to be that way, and I'm so happy that you told me it was helpful to you. Now, I can sleep. God Bless You.

    The other thing people need to take into consideration is you don't just get some weed.

    Why are you smoking it?

    What strain is best for that?

    I smoke medicinally. Sine I can't get the strain I need I have had to improvise and figure out my dose based on the strain I can get.

    The main reason I still use tobacco is because growers typically don't grow the strain that works for me for my day to day. It is a lower producing plant.

    Until the growers take real responsibility for growing medicine and providing education on why what strain should be smoked and why, it becomes the stoner party that all the squares are scared of.

    Ask and you shall receive. The controversial governor of Illinois just signed a bill decriminalizing marijuana. It took effect immediately. Small amounts, up to 10 grams, are now akin to a traffic ticket. Who thought the first agreement between republicans and democrats, at odds forever and a day in Illinois, would be in regard to marijuana? @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD

    #6 #7 "Trust me. I'm a doctor." Yes, eggs were bad, and then oopsies ...now they're good and then whoopsies ...only 2 yolks a week for adults and stick to egg-white omelettes. With spinach, mushrooms, bell peppers, flax seed, chia seed (ground), and a sprinkle of tumeric (i.e., immunonutrition). Will give you my background thinking in another Buzz, to incorporate Randy's ideas more fully also. We're jam packed with too much honey! Love the Buzzing👌!

    #5 Once, again, you've sparked my curiosity, good thing I'm not a cat. I've smoked cigs for 28 years. I got a late start, I was 40. I smoked cigars on and off before that, and, perhaps, a bit too much weed before that. After watching people smoke those vap-thingies, as @Gerald Hecht would say, I just couldn't help but think, someday, they'll tell us that they're gonna kill us, too. Just like those energy drinks kids drink like pop (soda for our southern friends) these days. I asked a vap-thingie smoker just the other day how much that gizmo cost to start with. He said his was more than $200. WTF. If second-hand vap was bad for me, I'd be dead already. This guys blows smoke like he's a pile of leaves on fire. The veg-thingie sounds neat, but I think I'll hold off until they legalize recreational pot smoking in Illinois. It should be soon. The state's worse off than Puerto Rico. It needs the cash and, you know what they say, follow the money.

    #5 Fair enough. I'll attempt to deconstruct that, but it will take me some time. Please know that I am Pro- (and not Anti-) almost everything else good in the world. Pro-peace. Pro-health. Pro-mental health. There are just a few things where I am still "Anti" and smoking is one of them. Bless your heart and hands, dear lady.

    Sorry, @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD. I guess my anti-smoking and anti-vaping prejudices are interfering with my brain's ability to process how "inhaling" vitamins could possibly be a good thing. Nice attempt, but I still don't get it. ~ CDU

    Bringing you a product that is not "new" but is constantly fluid in its development. Catering to the health-conscious youth who also smoke cigarettes, the "VitaCig" is here to puff away through a vaporizor that also delivers several Vitamins, and Co-enzyme Q. Great fractal & thought-provoking genre here; thought you should know. @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, @Brian McKenzie, @Gerald Hecht, @Dr. Allen Brown, @Dr. Kristina Nelson, @debasish majumder, @Anees Zaidi, @Ali Anani and more!
