Just and FYI about using Marijuana as a senior. Check the other meds you take to see if it is compatible. My husband has several that warns against it because it effects the drug's healing. He was prescribed 3 new drugs last week. One was for his heart, another was a really strong diuretic, and the other was potassium and they all warned it was not something he could use at the same time.

Was a conservative about drugs until I was ~22. Met my wife, smoked out with her, and had a GREAT time. Weed is awesome. I haven’t smoked in about 5 years due to job reasons, but it’s not an overstatement to say that it changed my life. I’m more peaceful, more accepting, more filled with joie de vivre.

That is a very good suggestion.

Are you trying to shut down opposing thoughts by saying my post was personal, lol. That's just silly. Only pointing out that he doesn't like to do any kind of drugs, and that is his right. If we can't respond to posts honestly then we should just shut CD down completely. You are doing the same thing, and being reverse preachy. Both your posts today were attacking conservatives which isn't called for. There are a great many conservatives who are all for mj legalization on a federal level. And I am one of them.
While I agree with much of what you said I question the part in bold. AlaskErik was judgmental and factually incorrect with the line:

Nothing good ever comes from using illegal drugs or associating with people who do.

First off as pointed out marijuana is not illegal in many states and more are to follow. Next saying nothing good comes from using it, when there is a ton of documented cases where medical marijuana is helpful and therefore "good", is complete nonsense. To proclaim to never associate with someone who has discovered this benefit is closed minded and of course it will trigger a reaction,

I need to research how long it stays in your system (height/weight, amount smoked, amount hydration, etc) so I can plan a few tokes before I retire.

Digestion is slow. It takes a minimum of an hour to get the effect of an edible, and then the THC continues to enter your body for hours. An edible is an all-day commitment.

I had some edibles in a legal state on vacation earlier this summer. They were excellent. I snacked on a candy bar on public transit. No one paid attention to what I was eating. I overdid it a bit and had to wait awhile before driving, but I'd much rather have a candy bar, brownie, etc., than smoking.

I might smoke a cigar once a twice or month, but that's different because you don't inhale the cigar smoke.

I would think a person should pay attention to the THC content of edible.

Petra mints (dissolved under the tongue) take 15 minutes - and at a low dosage (2.5 milligrams), there is really no "all-day commitment."

Is there euphoria with 2.5 MG's or more of a therapeutic dose?
