I was diagnosed with Crohn's four years ago. It got bad enough that I had four feet of my small intestine cut out. Marijuana is the only way I can ingest food without my body rejecting it completely and it has been that way since a year before diagnosis and three years before surgery. I'm not talking about a weak appetite here...my stomach will literally begin the process of rejecting food as soon as it enters my mouth if I have not taken MM within an hour before eating. The small bowel resection did fix the appetite problem for almost a year and I stopped marijuana use during that time, but the same problems returned late last summer.I reacted horribly to Remicade infusions, which created four hours of misery each session at the cost of $36,000/year. Still did nothing for my appetite.My insurance decided that Humira is what they wanted to start paying for and it is much less of a hassle, but still a $24,000/year medication. Still does nothing for my appetite.I moved to Colorado recently and was able to get my temporary license within 24 hours of establishing residency. My doctor travels to her clinics in Aspen, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, Rifle, and Grand Junction and prescribes marijuana almost exclusively. She is definitely somewhat of a hippy, but happens to be one with a Princeton education.My town of 9,000 people has four dispensaries. Ten minutes down the road in Carbondale, a town half the size, there are eleven. The upcoming National Geo program mentioned earlier just completed their year of filming right in this area. I get a free 1/8 each month from my designated dispensary and have also been given a rice crispy treat (85 mg of THC), cheeba chew, and a hand-rolled joint of the hog leg variety in the past week, all free of charge. I am able to curb the pain and keep a vegetable that might not have been cooked long enough from ruining my day with debilitating gas buildup.I now hike and ski weekly, which would be out of the question without this treatment. I maintain a healthy weight of 165-175 pounds after bottoming out at 125 just two summers ago. Life is good.
Resonance...metal folding chairs or hard tile floors cannot be beaten when it comes to firing off a loud fart.

Thank you for educating all of us VillageHawg.
No doubt. Mad props indeed. I hate it that you have to live with that aMm.That being said, I'm so tired of the arguments to legalize weed always seeming to end up using medicinal use as a crutch (which, by the way, is not at all what VillageHawg was doing). The medical uses for it are just that much more reason for the fucking nonsense to stop. Why doesn't alcohol need to have a medicinal use to be legal? For the guys out there like VillageHawg, I would be happy to see some legislation passed to at least allow medicinal use. But the ass inside me really wants to tell the government to go suck a dick, and don't come at me half-steppin' because this aMm goes way deeper than that. It's my god damned body and it ain't hurting nobody else if I choose to put one in the air. Our government and its constant over-reaching is deplorable. People are enjoying their lives less and, in some cases, suffering as a result of a large number of cocky, square bastards that think the fact that they've never smoked a doob puts them on some moral high ground. Fuck off fags. Go fuck your wife from the missionary position and leave the thinking people alone.Smoking weed is a gateway to a lot of things when you derive causality from statistics and have grits for brains. There is one Starkville of a difference between weed and the next drug up the scale in terms of overall effect. Our laws make the mistake of classifying weed in a group with a bunch of other, way more harmful substances. So when the day comes that you finally decide that the gig's up on what you've been sold your whole life and you decide to smoke a little herb, your first thought is generally that it isn't what you thought it would be. And the assumption is made that maybe the other drugs aren't as dangerous as you thought, and that's where you'd be fucking wrong. I personally don't give a fuck what anyone does as long is it doesn't negatively affect me and my family. And I don't understand why anyone else does, either.
Kill the christians. Kill them tonight. DARE does more harm than good, and has since its inception. Once a teenager realizes they've been told one lie, it's all lies to them. Stupid naive bullshit doesn't fly with the kids.You want to keep kids off meth and heroin, hire a stoner to teach them. You hire a recovering junkie or a naive christian to teach them, and it's over immediately. Kids don't listen to hypocrites or morons.Pot is a plant. It is not a drug. Drugs are compound chemicals. Government hypocrites can't change reality no matter how hard they try.
Sigh. Sometimes your over-the-top conversation starters are a little much. Not all Christians are hypocritic morons any more than all pot-smokers are unicorn collecting, arrowhead searching, porn watching meth heads in training.
Ima have to agree with this. I'm a pot smoker AND a Christian.
Judas. Henley, Don. Ever heard of him? I turn on the tube and what do I seeA whole lotta people cryin' "Don't blame me"They point their crooked little fingers at everybody elseSpend all their time feelin' sorry for themselvesVictim of this, victim of thatYour momma's too thin; your daddy's too fatGet over itGet over itAll this whinin' and cryin' and pitchin' a fitGet over it, get over itYou say you haven't been the same since you had your little crashBut you might feel better if they gave you some cashThe more I think about it, Old Billy was rightLet's kill all the lawyers, kill 'em tonightYou don't want to work; you want to live like a kingBut the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thingGet over itGet over itIf you don't want to play, then you might as well splitGet over it, get over itIt's like going to confession every time I hear you speakYou're makin' the most of your losin' streakSome call it sick, but I call it weakYou drag it around like a ball and chainYou wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the painYou wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crownGot your mind in the gutter, bringin' everybody downComplain about the present and blame it on the pastI'd like to find your inner child and kick its little ***Get over itGet over itAll this *****in' and moanin' and pitchin' a fitGet over it, get over itGet over itGet over itIt's gotta stop sometime, so why don't you quitGet over it, get over it
I actually caught that, a rare one for my dumb ass. I guess my point was similar to Ghandi or the Dali LammasOr whoever said it..the quote about "I like your Christ, it's your Christians I have a problem with"I see and know so many people who claim to be Christian but are in fact hiding behind Chriatianity and using it as a sort of shield from behind which they fling their particular brand of aMm, whether it be the idiots from that "church" in Kansas or just self righteous asshats who disagree with how you choose to express your freedoms...I don't like being lumped into the same pile as them.
It was a joke."Kill the Lawyers. Kill them tonight."But I'm dead serious about DARE. DARE's turned out more junkies than Krispy Kreme.
Missed it...I'm a moron.My nephew, a senior in high school, agrees with 110% of your statement about DARE. He had a bit of a time making my sister understand his reasoning why he stayed away from the DARE program.
You hire a recovering junkie or a naive christian to teach them, and it's over immediately. Kids don't listen to hypocrites or morons.
Don't know how you equate this with hypocrisy. It's just like the drug commercials where they say, "it's okay to be a hypocrite". Just doesn't make any sense logically.A person is not a hypocrite if they realize they were stupid and changed their ways and now they're telling other people not to start. It's like the government spent millions on a national ad campaign where the people they hired don't even know the meaning of the word hypocrite.

Far be it for me to be any kind of authority on religion and whatnot, but I've heard Catholic Priests explain more than once that smoking marijuana isn't any big sin.... then they both started in to that whole "you just need to take care of your body, the temple, etc yada yada yada". Catholics can drink booze, smoke pot, etc... or all the Catholics I've ever grown up around and been associated with.
We had beer at all kinds of Catholic church gatherings....
