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?

Legalizing at the federal level would be a game changer. That said. I'm sure it will still be highly regulated. The devil will be in the details.

This is the main reason I would like to see it legalized. Most people who partake here are only going to see one type and it is heavy and potent as hell. I really doubt the medicinal affects of that strain other than appetite increase and sleep problems.

Working in dispensaries for the past few months, the term indica and sativa don't mean as much as the type of terpenes in the strain.

yea, I’m working with old knowledge and I figured it would all be muddier with tracked strains now. And apparently sinsemilla is obsolete as a term. Before 911 most of what you found had seeds and wildly inconsistent. And you payed crazy prices for the seedless. Then that was all there was and you payed the pretty penny. The prices dropped and its all still seedless and potent. I’m passing all this info on second hand as I receive it.

Meanwhile,

"Opioid Prescriptions
In 2018, , Idaho providers wrote 61.9 opioid prescriptions for every 100 persons compared to the average U.S. rate of 51.4 prescriptions."

my mom and i were just talking about this.

she scolds me about my marijuana use (though she has bought me books on how to grow, an antique box to hold 30+ joints, and some kind of weird bong). not an entirely great conversation. she believes more in pain meds.

damn boomers.

Jesus. I wonder if that statistic is counting multiple or repeat prescriptions for the same individual? Even if it is, the nationwide statistic is way too high.
Im certain it is. 50 percent of the population are not on opioids. Although the actual number of people is still staggering.
