"Give me a toke from your basket of smoke" was in a song I just heard and I wondered many things. I first thought of all that I miss because of laws that are made for no reason except to protect the interests of an enterprise or some other unknown reason. I thought of all the health benefits that are denied me and others. Why? who knows. I also thought of people locked up using my tax dollars and I am not afraid of what they are doing. So far, I have never been harmed by a Toke smoker. What have we all missed? What are we missing?
I am shy in a group and alcohol gives me a headache or makes me appear stupid because I think a remark is brilliant and I keep repeating it over and over. Remembering my stupidity was worse than the hanover. Yes, I rarely drink more than one drink. I can giggle like crazy with a few puffs of the plant and I have had my best times on those rare occasions. I have never had any ill effects from my few encounters with marijuana or with the people who smoke it. Naturally, I know the mean drunks, the loud drunks, and the driving while drunk drunks. Why is one legal and the other illegal?
I am hoping to get medical marijuana legalized in my state soon. I am hearing that a salve is available that does wonders for rheumatiz and we all have some of that by now. I don't need a drug company involved, I would like to grow a few herbs and treat myself as people have done for eons of time. I have been prescribed many drugs that did no good and did cause more problems than they cured. Now, I am very skeptical of the prescription pad. If some are worried about me, I am feeling fine the doctors have no concern for my aches and pains, and my shyness in a group, or the sickness they cause others with their chemotherapy sickness. I am told that marijuana helps nausea and the appetite. Why is it not used? There are so many dire drugs handed out as if they are wonderful and a cure all when many cause more problems than they cure.
I am a law abider, so I don't like to be jailed and face all that comes from doing something that should be nobody's business but my own. I dug up roots and plants for my mother as a child and she kept us all alive and healthy, but now she would be arrested for practicing medicine without a license. My mother also was a midwife and she never damaged any babies or brought harm to them. There were no doctors within miles of where I lived. We did go to the doctor when necessary, but most of the time we took care of ourselves. My dad came in cold from the outside, my mom made a hot toddy. I am not against alcohol. My grandmother was prescribed a tonic, Hadacol, that was 80 percent alcohol and she had a tiny green glass to take full advantage few times a day.
I wish my mom knew about marijuana, I would have more to tell you, but she probably would not have used it to make people silly. My mom had no tolerance for silliness, neither did my dad, so that is why I could use a few puffs and enjoy a good laugh; you know what they say, " Laughter is the best medicine "and NO; alcohol does not make me laugh nor do I see a lot of drinkers laughing. Alcohol is good for a hangover, and may do wonders for some, but the rest of us, like me, deserve something.
Why is alcohol legal and Marijuana not legal in so many states and in other countries. I would like to know why you think this is true.
