Figured I'd go ahead and post a poll and see how you guys and gals feel about cannabis. I myself haven't smoked it too much, but before I enlisted I partook maybe 5-10 times. I personally didn't enjoy the high too much, but the pain relief was amazing.

I've been on a few big pain killers throughout my day for issues related to service. They all make me feel too high, numb, and are very addictive. Marijuana has been a pain reliever that I've recently enjoyed. It has made me feel better than the pills. Those "legal" pills are addictive as ****, and have led to more problems than I'd like. After a long days work I personally would prefer smoking and going to sleep than drinking and taking these pain pills.

Anywho, what are your thoughts on marijuana? Should it be legal, medically only, or stay illegal?

It is though. One of the excuses the non-legal states use is that marijuana is illegal on the federal level.

And the way this Massie fella describes what is actually going on with this bill could only be accomplished by a highly seasoned forked-tongued politician. That man is high caliber.

All the things he's describing almost have to be done. No different than for alcohol or sugar. One difference is at least they attempt to realize past marijuana laws were purposefully used to disproportionately negatively affect certain communities. Mainly the African American one. So supposedly setting up federal level monitoring parameters to make sure those groups get a foothold in the legalized industry. Which i'm sure is pure lip service BS, but I'm also sure republicans aren't fans of that language existing at all.
No, a small government bill would be the federal government removing it as a controlled substance at the federal level and leaving it entirely up to the state.
Massie is one of the few that actually reads the bills.

Which part of this bill prevents states from doing any of that?

Let's forget the generalities and Massie word salad. What specific rules and regulations or taxes is he talking about?

I heard a commercial on a podcast for a company selling THC Delta 8 products. Is this a GMO THC that is technically legal because it is new and was not classified as illegal?
ordered 1ml cartridge and will gladly let know the outcome.

He'll never get his 12 years back, but at least he's not wasting anymore of his life. A life sentence for $20 of weed is both inhumane and a ridiculous waste of taxpayer money.

I was coming to post this. Somehow, I think this is a gross abuse of the three strikes laws. I was not paying much attention back when they were developed but thought they would only apply to violent offenders as that was all the argument about it revolved around. I didn't, but should have read the fine print.

I can vouch for the Durban Poison One of my faves.

My current favorite is Blue Raz in the pen.


Blue Razz traces its origins to an unknown American breeder. While little information exists about its parent plants, Blue Razz is commonly enjoyed in vapes as an Indica-leaning hybrid.

Consumers report this strain features a sweet berry taste and skunky aroma, while others cite its pain-relieving and relaxing properties.

I thought sativa is supposed to be the best strain for pain relief. I may be wrong about that so if I am wrong tell me the strain I need for pain.

Might be a good time to kick all the smoking habits since Covid isnt going away anytime soon...
Or switch strains?
