(Denver Post)   Obvious: children like brownies and gummy bears. Bad: In Colorado, many of those are filled with THC, increasing the number of children in the ER for pot poisoning since 2009 by infinity   (denverpost.com ) divider line

Fark_Guy_Rob: Could we please stop pretending there is anything medicinal about the weed in Colorado?

I've seen the full page ads promising weed-cards, same day, no questions asked, signed by a real doctor, cash only, no medical history required.

I've seen the people going in and out of the weed shops.
I've seen inside the weed shops.

For contrast, I've also gone to real doctors and gone to real pharmacies to get drugs.

I'm pro weed, but can we just drop the pretense?


It makes it easier for Grandpa and Grandma to "adjust".

Weed ain't a cure-all like some hippie types like to think, but it's a better pain med that highly-addictive Oxy and other benzos.

I wish there was more medical investigation into it but because it's "illegal" there's a lot of red tape.

Didn't they kind of do that this past election when they voted in fully legal recreational weed? Now, presumably it doesn't matter if you need it for medicinal use or recreational use...

Barbecue Bob: The water comparison is lame and not applicable at all. Water does kill. Pot does not. Nobody in all recorded human history has ever directly overdosed on pot. Unlike water.

Beyond that, I'm a hardcore smoker of pot for about 45 years. I've lived in CO for 25 of those. Eating pot infused food can fark you right the fark up. If you didn't know you ate a drug, you'll be on your way to the ER wondering what the shiat is going on with your head.

The infused edibles made today are EXTREMELY potent. Not life threatening, but if eaten unaware of what you just ate, you may think you're about to perish.


I have a sad. Edibles don't do a damn thing to me. Bought em made in various strengths, tinctures, candies, butter, chocolates, whatever oral intake (hell, fresh off the cawk if it would work.) Pisses me right off. Smoking barely affects me anymore.

Hardcore... You keep using that word... ^_^

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: TelemonianAjax:
I haven't used a vaporizer before.  Can someone recommend a good entry level model and a good "regular use" model?  I'm looking to try something new and would like some advice.

The best way to vaporize that I've found is to make one at home.  Just take a stainless steel holder of some sort, a round coffee scoop works well.  Make a chimney out of aluminum foil, slightly smaller than the holder.  Cut the top off a two liter bottle and put a tube on the bottom of the bottle (a pen casing works well).  Use a lighter to heat the bottom of the holder, with the weed inside, and catch the smoke in the inverted two liter.  Costs nothing and works pretty well.


Dude, use a tealight so you don't have to deal with the lighter.

AeAe: thorthor: I am willing to ingest the Ld 50, no lets make it double Ld50. Any time, any place. you farkers pay, any method of ingestion you choose. Lets prove it once and for all. If I end up w/anything worse than a headache, ill farking join the GOP and start campaigning for absolute prohibition. Ill be the next Neil Armstrong. One small step.....

I vaguely remember reading that the LD50 was something like 30% of your body weight of cannabis consumed in a short period of time (say, an hour).

Let's say you're 150 lbs.  How do you propose "consuming" 50 lbs of herb in a hour?


I would think you would be too busy shiatting yourself to death after 10 pounds to manage the other 40.

But have you seen attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion or watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate?

All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Tiem to high.

/otoh, would have liked some mmj rather than the oxy i got after my neck surgery
//florida will probably be one of the last to get mmj
///too much 'south' in north florida and too many of 'those people' in south florida that the north floridians don't like

Cannabis also doesn't have nearly the number of contraindications as, say, alcohol, or most prescription drugs.

I use edibles almost exclusively: they don't hurt my asthmatic lungs, they are convenient and discreet, and they don't smell strongly.

These are delicious and designed with MJ in mind. I make them into little balls and roll them in powdered sugar. A little melted chocolate never hurts, either. :)

lolz.. well, you could try to smoke it I suppose.  Or vape it.  I didn't say it could be done.

Hmm.. not sure if you're serious, but CO and WA passed full-on recreational use of cannabis by ballot this past November.  So there's no "pretense" that it's all for medical use.   Now if you're saying that there are people there that are pretending that they are using it for medical purposes.. maybe they're embarrassed?  I suppose there's still a stigma to pot use.
