    Starbuds? Budtender? When I read this, I imagine Matt Frost speaking in a Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure voice while binging on Twinkies.

    I dunno. When I was a regular consumer I would come across names - Thai stick, Sensemillia, etc. I could recognize the difference but never cared too much one way or the other. Generally speaking I looked at it exactly the way my dog does when I put her dinner in her bowl. '"Oooh ! My favorite!" Whatever it is. Favorite was always what was available.

    This is like craft beer. I can appreciate it but an over-the-top name doesn't add much for me. A friend recently shared some 'gorilla glue' with me. Interesting. No idea why they call it that.

    Sounds awfully expensive. I do recall buying the stuff by the quarter pound, not by the gram. Feel free to do the metric conversion there. Used to make $$ selling it to Vassar students :)

    That was a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away ...... maybe it had something to do with Reaganomics, don't remember ......

    Had some fun while in lockdown with that gorilla glue stuff but really had to step away. Once in a while is OK for me. No objection to it. I am continually surprised at how mainstream it's become. I'm still stuck on weed kiosks. I bet that's one machine they have to refill themselves and don't get a 1099 nitwit to do it.

    I think the normalization and mainstreaming of pot is a good thing. I don't partake of it myself, but wasting taxpayer money to get rid of it is one of the dumbest things we have ever done and made alot of criminals rich. I once read an article where drug dealers were actually complaining about legalization because it took away a large chunk of their business!

    Here in Pennsylvania it was explained to me that you needed a medical condition in order to get marijuana. That seems to be so much BS from what I can see. Most of the dispensaries cater to THC products. The CBD products are few and far between. Today’s weed is much more potent than anything from the 1970s. It’s also more expensive. You buy it by the gram rather than by the ounce like in the old days.

    Once the federal government gets the fingers out of their asses and legalizes pot then maybe prices will come down and there won’t be all this legal nonsense to using marijuana.

    So it begins in baby steps...

    ...

    House to vote on removing cannabis from list of controlled substances

    [​IMG]

    The House will vote on legislation next month to remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act and erase some marijuana criminal records.

    The bill would not legalize the drug, which would be left up to states, but the vote will still be a historic step in the effort to reduce legal penalties related to the drug. House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said in an email to members that the vote will take place during the September work period.

    Look at what weed shares a bench with on the Schedule 1 list of bad stuff:

    Drug Scheduling

    Schedule I

    Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Some examples of Schedule I drugs are:

    heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote


    Marijuana does seem to have it's uses even if they are palliative so I don't think "no currently accepted medical use"
    applies anymore.

    The word 'alcohol' doesn't even appear on that DEA page. Different bureau. That's BATF. Alcohol has it's own classification. I roughly equate it with weed and honestly think booze is worse. I've seen drinking ruin people's lives but all I've ever seen weed do is make people fat & lazy, that's about it.

    What is true is that when legalized the cost for users will go way up.

    My favorite phrase is that there is no scientific basis for CBD (cannabidiol) to work on Parkinson’s disease, pain issues, anxiety etc. That is true. The Federal government keeps marijuana illegal thus there can be no research done. It is so much BS.

    I can buy all the beer and liquor I want but some product that might help people with pain issues gets blocked by stupid politicians.

    you would think it might alleviate some pressure on cops and have an effect on who is rotting in jails because of it

    In Pennsylvania in order to get into the marijuana program you must be approved by a physician. As marijuana is technically illegal all transactions must be cash only. No credit cards are accepted and no medical insurance can be used either. All this becomes quite pricey when you have to pay the doctor $150 so he can sign off on some paperwork each time you see him.

    Even though the physician had to take some training, my doctor is ignorant as sin on certain aspects of the program. He tried to put the fear of God into me. He stated that there are armed guards at the doorway of the dispensary. I have yet to see anyone with a firearm. He also keeps telling me there will be a run on marijuana product as more people are accepted into the program. There seems to be plenty of product available.

    I tend to tune out the doctor and bite my tongue as I pay him my cash to be part of the program.
