RE: Official Cannabis Thread
Here is something on Fibromyalgia and weed.

Probably Stark knows if it's true.

RE: Official Cannabis Thread
I've known two people with FM that use cannabis, so I've done a fair bit of research. The cannabis relieves inflammation in the joints and generally helps with the aches of FM. Though it doesn't do anything to treat the disease, it's symptoms can be greatly relieved with cannabis, generally most effectively by ingestion. That's how both my former patients preferred to medicate.


The tricky part about cannabis as a medication is that too many people claim it's a cure all. The thing is, cannabis makes unpleasantness less unpleasant. That goes for pain as well as mood. So too often MJ supporters point towards all these illnesses and scream "IT CURES EVERYTHING!!", while really, it just makes feeling shitty more bearable.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Sometimes, feeling less shitty is half the battle. I say, if it helps in the fight, it can stay. Shy

That said... THC & CDB have been been found to boost the immune system and have an effect on the endocrine system.

RE: Official Cannabis Thread
I didn't read all of this post but yesterday while excercizing I had a thought. Like to hear other thoughts.

I am an honorably discharged x-navy personnel. I volentered to serve and die for my country. That was almost 30 years ago.

I have a problem with serving my country but not being able to do, legally, what the people in the state next to me can do legally.

I think an honorably discharged military person should be exempt to anything that is illegal in the state that they live in but is legal in other states. They served to protect the freedoms of this country but can't enjoy those freedoms themselves because they live in the wrong state.

I'm not only talking about cannabis. If I'm terminally ill, I should be exempt to the suicide laws, except two states, and should legally have access to the death cocktail if I choose to.

Samething if I were gay and wish to be married and my state doesn't allow it.

Any thoughts?

RE: Official Cannabis Thread
You should be allowed to smoke cannabis because your constitution says it's your right, not because you've served to protect that constitution. Being in the military shouldn't grant you exemptions from the law or special privileges. Didn't you serve so everyone in your country would be treated equally, like your constitution says?

Yes I did serve so everyone in this country will be treated equally.

But I'm not being treated equally. I am not allowed, by law, to do what is legal in the state right next to me.

Again, this isn't specifically about cannabis.

Shouldn't everyone be treated equally? Why should those of your stripe (and no one else) be allowed to hit the bong - or whatever? It comes across as "because I am better than this lowly rabble. I deserve more than they do."

Yes, someone with military training/higher education/in a higher income bracket is better trained/ better educated/wealthier. Does that make those people worth more as human beings?

If something is illegal that you think shouldn't be, it might be best to work to legalize it for all. By claiming special privilege because of your military status, you are potentially alienating other cannabis supporters.
