Yes, I understand, but I answered the question the poster asked which was "How can edibles be time consuming? I would think edibles would the fastest way". Just understand that you won't feel anything for a comparatively long time, and to follow directions on the package so you don't overdose.

Maybe Bush and Trump should have smoked a bit of weed, to chill out and not feel the need to persecute people or do cocaine or become an alcoholic.

Anyone who was young in the 60s and 70s and didn't really live in that era....there's something wrong with them, IMO. They would not live in any other era, either. They are divorced from the world and their society.

Not this time. Your original post, and this one are very unclear. Why not just explain yourself more clearly, and not blame others? You said " Medical and recreational have only THC to separate the benefits from recreation". What???

They both have THC in pretty much the same amounts. So what was your point?

So pot is fine, since it's legal? How about cigarettes? How about opioids, since they are legal? How about booze, since it's legal? How about the drug caffeine, since it's legal? How about valium, tranquilizers, antidepressants? All legal. How about sugar, which some say is an addictive drug? Legal.

Nothing good ever comes from not learning the differences among legal drugs, and judging others for choosing a different drug than you do. It's the philosophy of "you must do what I do, and you must not do what I don't do." Because what I do and don't do is, by definition, the only right way.

What really does harm in our country the most is the lifestyle of millions of people...sedentary, eating too much sugar & carbs, too much saturated fat....leading to an outbreak of obesity in our country and record levels of Type II diabetes (which is caused by lifestyle). All those substances are legal. And all are harmful, if not restricted.

The guy is straight edge, why give him a hard time? As long as he gives us the same courtesy, and doesn't act superior.

"Straight Edge
(especially among fans of hardcore punk music) having an ascetic or abstinent lifestyle.
"he's so straightedge that he won't even take Tylenol when he has a headache"

So what if the edibles take longer to take effect. Once you figure out the length of time it takes, just plan accordingly.

He's preachy judgey...while partaking of his own drugs. And he was wrong about pot being illegal. He's just judgey and uninformed.

You asked a question, and I answered it. It's as simple as that. Do what you want.
