It is like watching a person break into fragments. Eventually the pieces may become familiar, but you still never know which one is suddenly going to appear next. Sometimes it felt like I was playing ping-pong with seven people, but there was only one other person is the room.

I once told a family member of a patient that "the personality is gone but the soul is still there." She seemed very comforted by it.

CBS Sunday Morning show had a segment on the fast growing mj use among seniors this week, it's worth watching if one is interested or ignorant about this subject. Honestly I still look at cannabis use from the vantage of my past which was recreational & smoky, so this was pretty informative to me about the purported medical benefits. It is on Youtube.

So what do you think all the native americans used to put in their peace pipes? Come on, smoke em peace pipe and have heaping good time. That sounds like some grateful dead parking lot talk.

I know what I put in my peace pipe. (snicker) I am having a heaping good time also.
