    "Officer , These are Christmas presents for our friends in Vermont ."

      I'm sending them a Christmas card. Maybe they will come to Maryland next year.

        Or, you could join the blue side and travel to the west where we can legally enjoy recreational marijuana. We even offer organic, pesticide-free bud. You can even grow your own. Ah, the freedom ...

          Ahhh ....,  The Blue haze in California ?  And I thought the cause was the forest fires all summer in Montana , Wyoming , Colorado , Arizona , New mexico ?  Turns out it was Democrats lighting up ?

          NO wonder they live in an alternate universe.

          Hmm... tempting...

          But, no need to travel. My Blue state has legalized it now.

          Here is an interesting anecdote from Colorado.The street pot dealers love the legalization. The legal pot is so highly taxed that it makes their street pot a real bargain. And since pot is legal now, the cops aren't very actively going after them or their customers anymore. Good ol' Blue Colorado.

            Spent a couple months  in Colorado this fall , EVERYONE talks about the amazing increase in highway traffic and real estate  migration in Colorado this year . Won't be long before associated  crime rates , childhood addictions and related policing and property crimes  increase ten fold .

            Yeah, well, the people who already purchased it illegally will continue to do so. I don't partake but I know quite a few people who never would use when it was illegal who are now using tinctures and vaping for their aches and pains.

              Oh I'm sure if I had a "pain " it would be as good an excuse as any to get into an altered state of mind ,   the ignoring of the addictive tendencies be damned ,  the ramifications to our youth cultures be damned , it's  illegality and trafficing  related issues be damned .

              I predict this , ever been to an AA meeting ?  AA is a wonderful place for alcoholism right ,  The AA will soon be long forgotten by  the coming generations of PA organization .  " Hello , My name is Bob , I am a  Pot Addict  and it has destroyed my life in numerous ways  "   

              WE live in a new and improved pop -a cultural wave of altered -reality and it's only getting worse .

                  Picture what you will  , the simple truth though,  is that you know what I'm saying is more true than not yet you'll believe like most do that the self- entitling needs supersede the probability of all truth , mine or yours .   You remind me of those who drive down the road on that cell phone , distracted , dodging between the lanes ,generally shoving traffic around  all the while saying ," I've got this " .

                again... "yeah, addictive pot" that's the ticket. Everyone should know about 'Reefer madness' by now.

                Damn, sorry. That was sarcasm, I try to stay away from it. I should of just said that comment sounds like something from the times of 'Reefer madness' .

              Yeah... for their aches and pains. That works for me too. Medicinal use only.

              Damn! I feel a twinge coming on now.

              GA;-)

    Been smoking pot for over 40 years. I can go without it and have for periods of time. Anyone who thinks pot is highly addictive is obviously ignorant of this fact.

      Hmm... I bet you knew I wouldn't be surprised. I bet you can remember when Mexican was the only choice - until Colombian came along.

        Yep, Mexican was $100 a lb. and we'd break it down into 16 "lids" worth 15 to 20 dollars apiece. But if you wanted to spend 25 dollars you could get some good Columbian Gold. I helped to import some of the latter flown in by a WWII fighter pilot back in the 70's. Like to hear it? here it goes! A true tale but with changed names of course:

          Good story Randy. It's been a long time since I heard an oz called a "lid," and I would have jumped on that $25 Gold. We were paying $20 for the Mexican, but the Colombian was costing us $40 a "lid."  And when the Sensi showed up it was $60. ;-)

            Thanks for reading, GA. I heard from the pilot months after he was supposed to have died in the crash. And I grew the first sensi I'd ever smoked! smile Merry Xmas!
