I've no doubt you're right.


But putting smoke in your lungs and altering your mind isn't good for you. Alcohol, weed, etc.


Glad you didn't get hooked on the opiates.

Bill Clinton didn't inhale!


I wonder how many were users and still are. Not experimenters in their youth. At this point just about everyone has tried it or smoked it a bit.

Did you go to Fanuiel Hall? Plenty of drunks down there too. I am sure you could of went to Somerville and found a bunch there on a Saturday night too.


In fact... I bet we could find some in Baltimore this Saturday as well.

Of course the main health issue obviously is inhaling smoke from hot, combusted material. However, the more high-test the weed, the less you actually need to smoke thus keeping any damage to a minimum. Proper use of a vaporizer will also alleviate some of that as well.
A study done some years ago comparing regular pot smokers and regular marijuana smokers also indicated that when pot smokers stop smoking, their lungs heal up faster and more fully.

So please... smoke up... but don't post that foolishness here. All that nonsense is just so stoners can get high because they are addicted to it.

Marijuana is not addictive. Well, not addictive in the normal drug addict sense. Of all the commonly used recreational drugs, including caffeine and nicotine, marijuana is the only one that doesn't stimulate dopamine production. There are no physical withdrawal symptoms when someone decides to give it a rest.
I smoked it quite a bit recreationally when I was much younger. And although I never flew while high (well I did, just not a plane), I eventually quit smoking it. Didn't miss it. Now I use it medicinally for the days I don't need any of my prescription pain meds (which are a fast track to liver and kidney damage) but still need something to help manage the pain. Although I do occasionally run across stuff that has more of an analgesic effect which is preferable to being buzzed out all day, especially if I have to leave the house for anything.

Pot Smokers Show Less Inflammation (external - login to view)

People who smoke marijuana may have lower levels of inflammation compared with people who have never smoked it, according to new research on one marker of inflammation.

In the study, researchers examined data from more than 9,000 people on their history of marijuana use and their levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), one marker of inflammation that is frequently linked with people's risk of heart disease.

About 40 percent of the people in the study said they had never smoked marijuana, while 48 percent reported having smoked the drug at least once in their lifetimes, but not in the past 30 days. About 12 percent (1115) said they smoked marijuana recently, or at least once in the past 30 days. The researchers found that the people who smoked in the last month had lower CRP levels than those who had never smoked the drug.

(the article does say that further study is needed, but that's just a given when the product has been illegal for so long)

Respect for the law? Probably not, but if they're given a job they already know a fair amount about, can make some good coin doing it AND not have to worry about having it taken away they'll be happy to do it.

Just like the former poachers in Africa, who were hired to protect the animals, instead of poaching them. All people want enough money they can live on and have some left over to enjoy life.

Benefits, not getting shot dead, not having their family shot dead, living to old age, doing something useful, being able to save for retirement.

Who's to say they're only going to make $16/hr? Maybe they'll be part owners? Maybe the owners like the idea of having security and workers on the same shift and maybe, like the company I work for, they offer stock options?

There are so many ways things can be done.

Security is a 100% write-off each and every year so max that out first.

Manlove!. Now that there's an unfortunate name.......


Colorado's weed is getting much cheaper


In October, the cost of a wholesale pound of cannabis was around $2,400 to $2,600. That price has almost been cut in half to between $1,400 and $1,600 last month, according to data from Tradiv (external - login to view), an online marijuana-distribution platform.

"In less than a year, we've seen wholesale prices drop to nearly half of their previous totals," John Manlove, director of sales at Tradiv, told Business Insider in an email. "We've never seen prices like this."

The reason prices are dropping so rapidly is because the market's getting flooded. As growers ramp up production, the huge amount of marijuana hitting the market in Colorado is causing a "steady decline" in wholesale prices regardless of demand, says Manlove.

The story's similar for Washington, where the price of legal marijuana has dropped precipitously since the first recreational dispensaries opened, according to The Cannabist (external - login to view). Wherever there's a legal market for marijuana, prices have been dropping.

Manlove says that this has to do with the way cities in Colorado, like Denver, regulate the recreational-marijuana market.
In May, Denver's municipal government extended a moratorium on granting licenses to new retail dispensaries as well as marijuana-cultivation facilities.

This has allowed a "minority of large cannabis business owners" to buy and consolidate the remaining licenses, says Manlove.

And without strict "canopy limits" — the amount of plants one facility can grow — the influx of marijuana into the Colorado market will continue to cause prices to drop, says Manlove.

So, Colorado growers, with few limits and access to a huge market, are able to build an economy of scale, reducing prices across the board.

Though low prices are good news for consumers, cultivators will have to cope with lower profit margins on raw marijuana flowers.

According to Headset (external - login to view), a cannabis-intelligence platform, the highest-margin products (external - login to view) for dispensaries are those that make marijuana easier to consume, like edibles, beverages, and pre-rolled joints.

If these trends continue, then raw marijuana will continue to get only cheaper. And it's likely that the retail market will adapt by pushing further into such higher-margin products.

as of aug 24 2016 mJ stocks are down a bit

A federal court ruling against the ban of growing medical marijuana introduced by the previous Conservative government, was confirmed by Canada’s new Liberal government on Thursday.

It allows medical marijuana users to regain their right to grow their own cannabis herbs to fight common diseases that modern medicine cannot help with.

Medical Daily reports:
The federal government said Canada’s medical marijuana laws would be rewritten to reflect the court’s judgment, setting a deadline of Aug. 24 to finalize the changes.
as of august Canada Reaffirms Right To Grow Medical Marijuana

• As of Aug. 24, the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) replace the 2013 Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR), which replaced the 2001 Marihuana Medical Access Regulations.

• The new rules set out a framework for commercial production by licensed producers, like the MMPR, but like the former MMAR, allows patients to produce a “limited amount” for their own use or designate someone to grow it for them.

• The 34 licensed producers will be the only legal source of “starting materials” — seeds and plants.

• People who want to use medical cannabis still have to get a document from an authorized health-care practitioner specifying a period of use of up to one year and a daily quantity of marijuana in grams.

• Authorized patients can then register to buy from a licensed producer or with Health Canada to grow their own or have someone else grow for them. That person — who can’t have a drug offence on their record in the past decade — can grow for a total of two people.

Shares of Canadian and U.S. marijuana producers fell Friday after the Trump administration suggested a crackdown on recreational marijuana may be in the works.

Most of Canada’s publicly traded pot growers ended Friday lower after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer predicted the Justice Department will be looking more closely at the issue.

“I do believe that you’ll see greater enforcement of it,” Spicer said at a White House briefing (external - login to view).

Ontario-based Canopy Growth Corp. (stock ticker symbol WEED), which bills itself as the world's largest cannabis company, tumbled 4.64 per cent on open Friday.

Canopy became Canada’s first marijuana “unicorn” last fall (external - login to view), with a market value of $1 billion or more, after voters in four U.S. states — California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada — voted to legalize recreational pot.

More than a fifth of the U.S. population now lives in a state where recreational weed is legal, and many more live in states where marijuana has been legalized for medical purposes.

We do not believe the Trump administration will take significant action to shut down the recreational cannabis industry in states like Colorado, where the cannabis industry employs tens of thousands of people and contributes more than $100 million in taxes annually," pot producer MassRoots said, as quoted at Business Insider (external - login to view).

Others vowed to fight any moves to roll back the moves made on marijuana decriminalization in recent years.

"The cannabis industry will fight any pressure from the federal government to set back the significant progress that's been made thus far," said Jeffrey Zucker, head of Denver-based strategy firm Green Lion Partners.

"Singling out the adult-use market is short-sighted."

Legalize weed, and make it illegal to smoke in our home.... if you life in a Condo or apartment !! Our freedom are being eroded by a much of fools.

It is illegal to smoke anything in an apartment or condo, your vehicle, place of business, park, public buildings and many other public spaces.


But it is fine to shove a needle in your arm in Downtown Eastside Mario's in Vancouver, die and have taxpayers revive you several times a day at great expense.


Enjoy your $18 a gram bud!
