(NBC News)   Research suggests marijuana pill may help relieve pain better than the traditional smoking method, and by "relieve pain better", they really mean "make pharmaceutical companies richer"   (vitals.nbcnews.com) divider line 19

You lying guys and your 'medical' marijuana.  If you would man up and admit to me that I am the morally superior person because I do not need to get high, I would stop being so infuriated with you.

The My Little Pony Killer: Real Women Drink Akvavit: RockofAges: Real Women Drink Akvavit: RockofAges: You'll get there. Stigma is a powerful force even if you are aware of it and the influence it has. Also, our side has cookies

I'm a chef. Our side could soon have an entire tasting menu, though I will be sure to include cookies or a cookie like item. For medicinal purposes and enjoyment, both.

/thinking of trying my hand at a cannabutter pizza dough

My experience is that it is a very earthy taste at times and so it's usually best to really bury it in savoury flavours. Gravies are surprisingly good. Deep tomato sauces with lots of other herbs, another ideal candidate. Once it's been "buddered", it doesn't matter what medium you use it in really as long as you don't scorch it.

The first thing I noticed with that chocolate was the taste of the herb. It isn't unpleasant, it's just something I'm not accustomed to tasting. It's not going to take me too terribly long to figure out how to work with it, but it's good to know I'm on the right track when I'm thinking "wherever you're going to have strong, herbal flavors".

Cannabis always gives food the a slight hint of a minty taste to me.  Anybody else get this?

/mmmm, mint chocolate brownies

Made these, with mint vanilla icing (both cake and icing had budder). Dark chocolate cake. Aaaaamazing.

And on the PITA double boiler above -- mason jar in a saucepan. Opa redneck style!

Look, I'm not 'the man', I'm not some ultra conservative with a stick up my ass. I'm not a giggly kid, I'm mature - I'm in my middle 30's, and I know folks my age and older who still try to convince me that they're in it for medical reasons. Why do people continually show me such disrespect that they have to lie to me?  Why is it so hard for people to just admit they want to get high?

All you folks out there that are lying right now, realize that the reason you incite such vitriol is because when you lie to us in such an obvious way, what you are really telling us is one of two things:

  "I do not respect you."
  "I do not respect myself."

Either marks YOU as someone who is not deserving of respect.

That's why some people treat you like a reprobate, not because you like to get high, but because you treat others and/or yourself like crap.

scottydoesntknow: fireclown: Psycoholic_Slag: fireclown: No, subby.  This story isn't "big pharma gets richer", it is "medical marijuana advocates don't want medicine so much as they want to get high".

You say that like it's a bad thing.  Thanks for looking out for my best interests.

I don't mean to.  I favor full legalization for recreational use.  But I have come to despise the artifice.  Every time someone starts going on and on about the amazing medical powers (and total lack of negative effects) of Marijuana, they seem to be stoners.  I just want some more honesty in the conversation.

Ohhh shut the fark up. You spout the same shiat every time "I'd be in favor of legalization if potheads would just admit it's for recreational use!" Well here you go: I want it legalized for recreational use. Unfortunately that hasn't worked very well in the past. By pushing its medicinal benefits (and don't argue about the medicinal benefits, you look stupid every time), we can at least get it pushed into a positive light and work from there.

I want some more honesty from you. You show up in damn near every MJ thread spouting the same shiat, while ignoring the farkers that do use it (or their friends/family) for the medicinal benefits. Why do you ignore all of their posts?

Somebody somewhere said marijuana never causes any problems and he just wants to address that this may be undermining marijuana legalization.  He's just looking for the people that always do that to provide some honesty.  He's just very, very concerned that these people may be using medicine as a ruse for drug legalization.

This could be bad... for marijuana.

SlashW: Wasn't part of the non-legalization argument that the strength of the thc couldn't be controlled?  Now that every indoor grower has that to a science what's the issue?

  ** don't smoke it, can't, it makes me incredibly STUPID (and for some reason makes my tongue hot and it won't stay in my mouth)

Ehhh not really. That's actually one of the arguments against the pill form. As it comes in pre-measured doses, you can't control how much you intake, which can make you feel worse than if you hadn't taken anything.

This isn't 'new' research; I read about this easily 15 years ago.

The chemical that causes appetite increases - which is what all the pro-legaized/pro-'medicinal' people claim is a benefit from smoking is easily synthesized and manufactured in pill form. Again old info.

PLUS doing it this way removes the 'intoxicants' from the pot so a user won't get high.

The pro-pot/pro-'medicinal' people have an issue with doing it this way.

Brilliant idea:  Outlaw coffee and tea!  For health and morality reasons!

Then allow the pharmaceutical companies to make pills that are the rendered down effective agents!

Millions I tells ya!

What is it with pot smokers who talk up all of the medicinal benefits of the drug, then SMOKE it! Yeah, because THAT's an efficient delivery method!

Do these same people still smoke opium for pain killers, or get a prescription for Oxy?

And for those who claim no health risks due to the smoke, can you explain to me how this magical smoke is not harmful--ya know--unlike ANY other smoke inhaled into the lungs on a regular basis...

ZAZ: That's the risk of pretending medical marijuana is about medical marijuana. Somebody might take you at your word and produce medical marijuana.

Whatever it takes to get asshole busybodies to mind their own business, and shut the f**k up.
