I remember that commercial, where 2 grown men were still living in their mother's basement....yeah, they'd look for a job. Tomorrow.

I had friends in HS and college whose lives were taken over by apathy from regular recreational partaking, and their grades and ambitions suffered.

On the other hand, it appears much MM is bred so the THC content is limited. The salves and oils for kids having seizures, for example. Now for people in significant pain and/or undergoing chemo, I'd think they'd get the real deal.

That's one of two anti-drug ads I have ever seen that I thought were any good.

The other one was Mr. Junior Executive, wearing an expensive suit. He went into a washroom stall and pulled out a tiny vial of white powder. He dropped it and it rolled behind the toilet. Then you see him crawling on his hands and knees, in the expensive suit, trying to retrieve his vial. Not one word in the ad.

Very little of the MM has limited THC. There are only certain strains that are bred that way. You can get pot that affects you in any way you can imagine these days. The days of people being comatose after getting high are long gone (unless that is specifically what they are looking for). There are plenty of strains that energize you and make you more active then you were before using it.

I was married to a man who sold all the furniture to fund his MJ habit...furniture that was handmade for me as payment for full time babysitting three summers. I have no tolerance for dopers, but if a patient, friend or family needed it for a medical reason, legal or not, I would help.

It seems MM and legal LM are grown to maximize the content of THC.
Now if you want to extract other chemicals and THC is not important, I can see growing for the specific reason.

Habit? Dopers? Really?
I have been exposed to M all my life and have known people who smoke the product regularly and those who only smoke occasionally.
I can assure you these people are not addicted to anything and are quite reliable folks. Most as normal as one can be.

Now I have known a couple people that had cocaine addictions that stole from their parents.
I would never ever consider putting the M users in the same sentence as these people. Ever.

You SEEM to have missed the part where I said I was MARRIED to this man. I know he is a DOPER and it is HIS HABIT. This is my personal experience with it, stop telling me I am incorrect when I say something.

Sounds like the man had way more issues than smoking an occasional blunt, so it's not really fair to blame marijuana for someone's crazy.
