Yeah, this. Obamacare is the small blind to the NHS's all in.

Are they offering prescriptions to buy marijuana, which you can get in some of the United States, or prescriptions for free marijuana, which will have half the college students in America taking spring break in England next year?

Why are we filling ourselves with this medicinal marijuana stuff? Let's just admit we, as a society, like it and want it legal. Stop with the prescription kabuki dance already.

Washington and Colorado find the idea of a prescription amusing. Of course, we now find everything amusing.

Well, I live in Washington state, so I'll take my recreational marijuana, same sex marriage, and inexpensive health insurance, thankyouverymuch!

According to the Daily Fail, they're raising the costs for their single payer, and raising the retirement age...

We increased our retirement age from 65 to 67 way back in 1983.

Because for some of us, like those who work in the MMJ industry, marijuana is a lot more than just a cheap way to pass the evening.  I got into the MMJ biz because my mother simultaneously had Multiple Sclerosis and breast cancer, and I wanted to find a way to help her.  Since then I've helped a myriad of cancer patients, HIV/AIDS patients, amputees, veterans afflicted with PTSD and too many people with too many other maladies to count.

That it means so little to you is irrelevant.

To the people who are actually suffering from debilitating ailments who find relief from this plant, it means EVERYTHING.

Speaking of segues, I just learned that neither I nor the internet knows how to bake a potato in the microwave, and I now have two potato-colored rocks stinking up my kitchen.

Shoulda stuck with the oven like I usually do, but I wanted one in less than an hour.

Wash potato, put in microwave wet, and poked w/ fork.
5 minutes, 6 for 2-3 potatoes.
Pick up with pad or glove, watch the steam.
Then in 450 oven for 15 min to get that nice crispy skin.

If people want weed to be legal so they can get high, then just be honest and say so.  The cynical use of other people's suffering to emotionally blackmail society into making it easier for you to get high is a little more than tacky.  I'm totally ok with weed being legal but the half baked any pharmaceutical industry bs is getting old.

Perfect baked potato.

Wash Idaho or Irish potato. Take a fork and poke holes all over it, everywhere. Get all stabby with it. Rub olive oil all over the potato. (If you do it with a loved one, it could lead to sex. VERY sexy stuff) place potato on the oven rack in the middle of the oven and bake for one hour at 350 F. Use the hour waiting for the potato to bake to perfection having sex. Bring the olive oil in the bedroom and find ways to use it there. Leave the fork in the kitchen, or not, your choice.

Ah... Forgot.

Use sea salt on the potato after rubbing the olive oil on the potato.
Prior to putting it on the oven rack at 350F for an hour. Don't forget to poke holes in it, a lot of them.

Do NOT use any aluminum foil. You will screw up and make a soggy potato.

Recap:
Wash Idaho or Irish potato.
Poke tons of holes. Get stabby.
Rub in olive oil on the skin.
Use SEA SALT on the potato skin
Preheat oven to 350F.
Put potato on oven rack for one hour.

I didn't actually smell anything until I approached the microwave.  They weren't burned so much as...petrified.  Microwaves are complex and hideous machines.  I'm clearly not a technophile.

See, that's almost exactly how I would normally do it (minus the sex as I'm abstinent, but then talking to you guys is also quite stimulating and takes up some time as well).  No more high-tech gizmos for me.  That's enough adventure for now.

The hell is this?  You gotta be farking kidding me or something.  The potato just gets all dried out, moisture sucked out by salt, and olive oil drips in your oven.  Use foil, but use good stuff like Reynolds All-Natural Foil and not that China shiat with all the chemicals.

Precisely.  Just because a few college kids see an in with MMJ (and I'm certain I served some of them back at our shop) doesn't mean that there aren't heaps of people out there who use cannabis for legitimate, URGENT medical reasons.  The vast majority of our customers were people who very clearly needed it.  And this was in a college town.

If I can ever bring myself to move back to CO and open up a retail shop, I'm going to make sure that every person who comes in there gets an in-depth consultation and is presented with a list of strains tailor-made to suit their individual needs.

As someone who has recently been diagnosed with spinal arthritis, I'm hopefully soon to be getting a kick high...

Diagnosed a week ago with arthritis in my neck, which is probably what has been bothering me for years.  There have been days when I was crippled from neck and shoulder pain.  No, I never saw a doctor.  Yes, I'm one of "those people" who don't go in for diagnostics and/or treatment unless there's sufficient blood pouring from me.  My wife got me to go get imaging done, since we had already hit our yearly OOP maximum due to a surgery earlier in the year.  Turns out that me neck be all crappy, mon.

From what I gather, marijuana is a rather effective treatment for such maladies.  Can't say that it's ever been my drug of choice, but it's a HELL of a lot cheaper and less problematic than other options.  Waiting for my doc to get back from vacation, then ask about getting my MMJ card.

Would be reeeeeaaaaalllllly weird toking up again.  Like I said: not my thing.  Still, I wouldn't mind the relaxing effects, and for my neck to not bother me so much.  Just gotta avoid snacking, since I have to stay as trim as possible.  I remember absolutely wrecking entire boxes of cereal back in the day.

It really depends on the person and the type of spinal issue. A friend with chronic nerve pain due to severe scoliosis said it made her pain worse. In my case I have severe congenital stenosis of the cervical canal and foramina and have had two, two level fusions(C3-C7) and if not for marijuana, I could not function.

Marijauna?  BFD.  The UK has had prescription HEROIN for decades (for addicts only).

Takeshi6400: If people want weed to be legal so they can get high, then just be honest and say so.  The cynical use of other people's suffering to emotionally blackmail society into making it easier for you to get high is a little more than tacky.  I'm totally ok with weed being legal but the half baked any pharmaceutical industry bs is getting old.


Tacky?  You want tacky, how about locking people up for using a relatively harmless herb?  Getting old?  Pot has been used to lock people up and ruin their lives for over70 years.

Over my dead body! You're not about to turn my drunken, thickheaded Irish and Scottish brethren into peaceful, thoughtful, nonviolent potsmokers with a pension for Dr. Who, prog rock and non-boiled/non-deep fried food!

Danger Avoid Death: snocone: radarlove: Danger Avoid Death: HMS_Blinkin: UrukHaiGuyz: bdub77: The already re-raised the US on the ACA, it's called single payer.

Yeah, this. Obamacare is the small blind to the NHS's all in.

Frankly, we're not even IN this poker game.  The UK is winning and we're watching on TV, playing at home with imaginary chips.

Here in the US they're called imaginary French fries. Duh.

Speaking of segues, I just learned that neither I nor the internet knows how to bake a potato in the microwave, and I now have two potato-colored rocks stinking up my kitchen.

Shoulda stuck with the oven like I usually do, but I wanted one in less than an hour.

Wash potato, put in microwave wet, and poked w/ fork.
5 minutes, 6 for 2-3 potatoes.
Pick up with pad or glove, watch the steam.
Then in 450 oven for 15 min to get that nice crispy skin.

Also works for hamsters.


Definitely squirrels.
With a nice Chianti.
