The closest I have come to MJ (that I'm aware of) is finding seeds in empty containers while doing inspections in New Orleans.

There are a lot of comparisons to be made between a new born baby and an old person so I guess I'll add one more in that I want to finish this life as sober as I began it.

But as my old AF T.I. used to say, "smoke 'em if you got 'em."

I sure wish it were legal where I am. It'd be great for sleep problems or relaxation or maybe joint pain.

Don't forget that smoking is harmful to lungs. I wouldn't smoke, now. I'd make lower calorie brownies or something. And no driving, just like with any other drug.
It's so bizarre to me that people think you have to smoke it. You don't.

Just once, with brownies. It was interesting when it hit, but the idea of no longer being in control of myself was too scary, so I just went to bed and went to sleep.


Couple times wheni was young, a joint was being passed around and everyone saying "Hey, man", but I felt nothing.

I still drink. Just not the quantity or frequency of my younger years. My body metabolizes alcohol much slower than when I was 18 to 30. I slow my consumption to nursing my beverage once I feel a slight buzz. Marijuana is even worse. Maybe it’s the strength of it compared to the 1970s and 1980s but just a little bit turns my into a vegetable. It’s probably been close to a decade since I’ve had any. It no longer enhances the experience. I’m in a state that has legalized it and I used to work in Denver a lot. I have no interest.

I never touched MJ during my working years. When I retired I decided to give it a try. Smoking is hard on my lungs, I cough like crazy. I started growing plants several years ago and had a blast doing that. I grew the legal limit in Oregon which is 4 plants. I ended up getting so many pounds I gave it away to friends. I also made brownies, much easier then smoking, but it literally turned me into a zombie. My short term memory degraded. My wife didn't enjoy having a zombie around so I stopped consuming brownies. Smoking didn't have the same effect. I smoke a little bit to this day. I have 4 ounces jarred up that is probably half as potent as it used to be. I'll probably end up giving that away too.
I smoke very little now, but I have tried CBD oil recently which I really enjoy. It really helps with sleep and has no psychoactive THC in it. I don't get high, just sleepy. My wife is highly allergic to pot so I never smoke any inside. She literally has muscle contractions that have to be seen to be believed.
I'm glad Oregon legalized it but now there is a growing problem with marijuana DUII's. (Driving under the influence of intoxicants). Just like drinking and driving, don't smoke and drive!
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

So dumb. In California it's legal. The dispensaries are not selling products that are "laced."

God.

Nonsense fear mongering. Especially in the legal highly regulated states.

Our current drug epidemic is opioids...caused by prescription drugs.
