So was he going to AA to kick his weed addiction?

I don't have the attention span to read something of that length.

I understand he was powerless to stop.

Bung_Howdy: what a concise article.

Just the facts, maam


Actually, neither Joe Friday or any of his partners ever said "Just the facts" on any version of Dragnet. He did say "all we want are the facts". "Just the facts" came from Stan Freberg's popular 1950s Dragnet parodies.

Straight and to the point, how most news articles should be.

For alcoholics who are trying to quit, many at AA quietly know about the "MMP" - Marijuana Maintenance Program, which helps them beat alcohol addiction.  I know of many former alcoholics for whom "one drink is too many, and twenty are not enough" who now only imbibe cannabis and are much better persons (according to their spouses, kids, friends and family) not to mention the thousands or tens of thousands not spent annually at bars and on booze.  So remember the MMP and recommend it to your ass-drunk friends after their 4th or 5th DUI's and before liver failure, they may thank you for it one day!

Just another bad habit. Swapping one drug for another doesn't combat the disease of addiction, it just exchanges one problem for another. Pot is still illegal in most of the US, and may be much more severely punished than a DUI.

The people you mentioned should do their loved ones a favor and reduce their likelihood of incarceration.

Pangea, as to the disease of addiction, cannabis is not physically addictive, alcohol can be horribly addictive. and most that I know who have replaced their "bad (cronic alcohol addiction) habit" are on the medical cannabis program, so the likelihood of incaration is very low.  I'd rather see my brother on cannabis than alcohol any day of the year, but only the alcoholic can choose if they want to fight their addiction and how they want to do so.  I just mentioned what has "worked" for some of the people I know.

Yes, I'm sure Washingtonians (where Seattle is located) are horrified at the thought of being incarcerated for smoking a joint in their home. As are alcohol addicts using a medical marijuana program under the supervision of a doctor or addiction specialist in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Washington D.C., Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont to overcome their alcohol addiction with cannabis--which has been proven to be non physically addictive, unlike alcohol, which is both physically and psychologically addictive.

But you just keep living in that fantasy world where cannabis is bad, no matter what or why it's used. Me, I'll keep hoping they legalize it for medical use in my state because it's a lot safer than the narcotics they've been prescribing to me for over six years so I can continue to walk, and a lot safer than, cheaper than, and more effective than the neurological medications Johnny taxpayer pays over a thousand dollars a month for the VA to give me to keep my brain injury symptoms and seizures under control. If it happens to help alcoholics stop drinking, then by all means, go for it. Until you've seen an alcoholic die of liver failure or pancreatitis that's a direct result of their lifelong drinking, just. Shut. The. Hell. Up.

Aigoo: Until you've seen an alcoholic die of liver failure or pancreatitis that's a direct result of their lifelong drinking, just. Shut. The. Hell. Up.



I have in fact seen someone die as a direct result of a lifetime of alcohol abuse. I am also going to join my mother to bury his ashes in 2.5 weeks.

I am in fact a supporter of the legalization of marijuana. I also no longer smoke it, just as I no longer use any mood or mind-altering substances because I suffer from the disease of addiction. Not because "weed is bad."

Not every alcoholic has to choose another crutch to offset the crutch he is giving up. Alcoholics are more likely to be addicts rather than just selectively predisposed to abusing a particular substance.

But please don't let me get in the way of your preconceived notions of my situation.

Very valid points. In my case it needs to be complete abstinence, but in the end... whatever works.

No, you suffer from the disease of belonging to a cult.

Enjoy your powerlessness, biatch.

People like you actually invigorate me for reasons you'll probably never understand. As long as you feel like your opinion matters though. That's the important thing.

Oh, I get you fine, honey. I was in AA for several months, long enough to realize that it was filled with people like you. I came to realize that I didn't want what any of y'all had. And thanks to leaving AA, I'm sober today.

So shove your jails, institutions and death right back up your ass, buddy. You know you want it.

I sincerely am not trying to convince you of anything. I'm not even a member of AA, you made that assumption on your own and I didn't bother to correct you before.

All of this conflict is all coming from within yourself. Good luck with the rest of your life, Champ.
