Um. Dang! I can't remember what it was, but an old TV cop show had a character that said pretty much the same thing. If I had more brain cells I'd remember.

#12 for me is iffy.

I use it for pain. The best medicine for it I've found so far, and I am a proponent. But.

If it's going to be recreational and have a heavy tax then the money should go to the proper places. Mainly education. It's time to fix things for students, schools, and teachers. It's ridiculous that teachers have to buy supplies out of their pocket. Classes should be smaller. Students should not be taught to pass a test. What a dumb way to educate.

Tax the hell out of it, but put the resulting funds in the right hands.

I still think it's better than relying on some guy on a corner selling God knows what.

I have heard this as well. The Walmart up there in Centennial had too much theft and crime occurring and they changed the hours because of it (supposedly).

I heard that the Nellis area in the far NE had a Walmart once but closed due to rampant theft.

I don't partake, but I more or less agree with the above. I tried CBD oil for anxiety with minimal effect.

They really should tax the hell out of it. Cigarettes for example were 2 dollars a pack in 1998.

Marijuana burns twice as hot as has many more unidentified chemicals in it. Just trying to illustrate that the harmful effects are comparable to cigarettes.

I was visiting the Walmart on Decatur, and they have now locked up the deodorants because so many people were stealing them.

I tried the cbd also for neuropathy. No effect.
