I think marijuana should be legal in every states, this way all the Libs are stayed in their parent's basement and leave us alone.
=====================================================================

As various states move towards the legalization of marijuana, doctors are noticing the increase of a particular illness that is associated with regular use of the drug. Emergency rooms have been seeing an influx of patients with the same symptoms – severe abdominal pain and intense vomiting – and this increase is particularly high in certain states that have already legalized the use of marijuana.

While some doctors have been perplexed by these symptoms, the disease does have a name: cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, or CHS. The illness is believed to be caused by regular and long-term use of marijuana.

There seems to be a direct correlation between CHS and states that have passed marijuana legalization measures. One study shows that CHS diagnoses nearly doubled at two of Colorado's hospitals since 2009 – the year that it was decided that Colorado needed a state-regulated medical marijuana distribution system.

CHS was first identified ten years ago, but there is still not much known about the illness. Dr. Kennon Heard explained, "The most likely cause is that people using marijuana frequently and in high doses have changes in the receptors in their body, and those receptors become dysregulated in some way, and it starts causing pain."

I was always under the impression that marijuana eased nausea, according to some studies, as opposed to inducing nausea.

Well it certainly has vastly increased our homeless population here, at least during warm months. Not sure where the pot heads will go now that it is cold, maybe California now.

I'm sure there was alcohol in their systems as well. Most of the time that's the cause. But of course marijuana, just like other drugs or alcohol need to be used responsibly.

This is too funny!!!

The increase of abdominal related problems is probably because some couldn't control their "munchies". (Amateurs!) lol

I've know plenty of people over the years who have smoked MaryJane.
Some going through chemotherapy, some for glaucoma, some strictly recreational.

None of them ever had any major side effects from "inhaling".

Another reason that the use of medical marijuana has been expanded in treating more illnesses is because of the abuse of opiates.
Now because "some people" abuse the crap out of pain Meds, others who are truly in need of opiates can no longer get them - even though they've been responsible with their usage for decades.

And let's be clear here, most of the opiate abusers are in the RED states. These kids were eating them like candy & when they couldn't get more they turned to heroin.
Heroin is everywhere but the rise that raised eyebrows was across the good ol Bible Belt.

I think it's sad that because of a handful of people who were taking opiates for the "high" made it almost impossible for people who need it for constant chronic pain can no longer get a drug they've been responsibly using for decades.

I worry much less about the person who smokes a joint, rather the person who drinks a quart of liquor - to kill the pain.

Watch. In the next decade liver & pancreatic cancer will be increasing by leaps & bounds.

It's easier to get people to cut down on weed than it is to treat a full blown alcoholic. I've seen more alcoholics die at an early age than I have people who smoked weed.

When a dunce has no facts, he will just make them up and repeat them.

Archeological digs in china show that pot was used to abate Alzheimer's and other memory ailments for thousands of years.

Perhaps the dunce would be able to expand his memory to learn something new instead of repeating the propaganda he's so fond of!

Marijuana will end up the same way tobacco did. In a few years from now Doctors will have seen enough ill effects from it's use to draw a conclusion that it's bad for your health.

The stupid government will spend $millions advertising how bad it is for you, lawyers will be filing class action suits on behalf of the users.

You know this country started out with all drugs being legal right? You realize some of our founders grew and smoked pot right?

You're a f**king retard. Just keep all your stupid thoughts to yourself as they are not valid nor does anyone care what a moron like yourself has to say about literally any topic.

Most of the hissy fits thrown about legalizing marijuana (recreational or medicinal) are by the "yuge" pharmaceutical companies & the "yuge" profits they make.

Why would they want people to be able to grow something in their garden that would help many many ailments when they can confiscate it, add a bunch of harmful chemicals to it & then make "yuge" profits from it.

Doctors gave my dad THC pills. They were the size of the pills you give horses. They made him very very sick - worse than chemo.
My sister scored him a joint. She smoked it with him (a portion of it). He took a few hits & VOILA, he was able to eat, walk around & have a semi normal day.

And before any one you go making assumptions about my sister, she's married to a very prominent CEO & they live in a little gated community in a 5 million dollar house.
That sister & her CEO husband are daily pot smokers. They are both healthy, actively participate in sports & do a lot of volunteer work.

This is your brain on pot. Any questions....?

That might mean something if they were the only newspaper, or if they had conducted the study, but it isn't. The number of homeless have gone down in the past six years, period.

I made some THC infused alcohol(it was actually moonshine that I scored down south how funny is that?) and it messed with my stomach as well. I've not cannibutter or oil yet. Hopefully it won't upset my stomach.

Well they pretty much are the only newspaper. But as was stated earlier, just go downtown Denver in the summer, nothing but homeless kids, by kids i mean 17 to 24 year olds, they are everywhere, giggling all day, getting high. It's bad for tourism to tell the truth about the homeless, hence they count those people as "just passing thru".

Funny how they have money to buy pot, but no job, and no place to live. So far they are not causing any problems, no spike in crime, but let's not pretend that there has been absolutely zero negative effect with the legalization.

People can do whatever they want as far as I'm concerned, as long as what they do does not interfere in the lives of others. One problem we have had is due to the potency of primarily the edibles. People have been getting sick and a few have died because they were not prepared for what they were popping in their mouths.

Clarity doesn't believe anything unless it's on Twitter or Facebook.

I'd like to know how much she pays her translator to "read" things to her.



I was told by some "old timer" farmers that's cows never needed antibiotics (back in the day) because marijuana used to grow wild in the pastures & they would let it grow so the cows & other animals could graze on it. They believed in its health benefits - like many Native Americans. (Probably where they learned it.)

Back in the mid '80's, my Irish Setter had tons of skin allergies. I took him to several veterinarians, was referred to a specialist/dermatologist at the University of MN. They had him on 28(!!!) pills a day along with shots every other day & weekly baths with a medicated shampoo. The pills started causing intestinal issues, plus it was costing a fortune & not helping the issue. The doggie dermatologist referred me to a holistic doctor. She examined him & told me to dump all the pills & stop the shots immediately & instead sprinkle a small amount of marijuana over his food. VOILA! Within 2 weeks he was growing his hair back, no more rashes or scabs & the constant scratching stopped. Plus it was much cheaper.

Another happy MaryJane story!

I'd rather see giggling "kids" than pissed off politicians making Twitter threats with twitchy fingers too close to shiny red buttons.

Next time you're in downtown Denver if someone passes you a bowl, take a puff. Maybe you won't be so grouchy.

Ehhhh, a friend of mine told a story of moving back to a family property, acquiring a cow to raise for beef and turning it loose in a corral that had been overrun with wild pot. He said that the fat had a green tinge to it and it tasted horrible.

Does slapping people around really teach them anything? If it does, and smacking strangers is valid, where do 'we' draw the line? Slap the cashier if he/she give the incorrect change? How about mouthy kids at school?



Perhaps if the best solution you can conceive of is violence, you shouldn't be trying to teach anything to anyone.

Perhaps if the best solution you can conceive of is violence, you shouldn't be trying to teach anything to anyone.


Ohh it works no one smoked a lot of weed in the 50,s or you would have got smacked lol

Right. Violence is only a solution when you wield it, to suit your world view.

I'm thinking something more along the lines of moonshine.

You'd have to guzzle a lot of wine to be that special kind of stupid on a daily basis.

Scarred -

My ex used to grow a few plants every year. He would feed the leaves to my steer. The steer loved them!

Then he had 1 prize plant & he brought it in the house because of an early freeze.
Woke up one morning to a pretty stoned Bloodhound. The other Bloodhound never really cared for it.

I guess I have 1 stoner dog & one not. If the stoner dog ever needs to be piss tested I'll swap out her urine with the straight dog.

I have a story about a couple of dogs getting in to a stash, not mine, but it wasn't as cute and didn't end as well

Read the whole article before you cite it.

"Although the number of homeless people has been decreasing overall since 2010, Colorado was one of only 22 states that had an increase in homelessness over the past year.

There are 721 more homeless people in Colorado in 2016 than a year ago, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s annual report on homelessness. That is a 13 percent increase in homeless people in one year. It was the third highest jump in total homeless people in the country behind California and the state of Washington, the report says."

I read it. It's one year. Pots been legal for much longer than that. And, the numbers have gone down since legalization, minus one year. Correlation does not equal causation.

Oh no!

As I said, the holistic vet was the one who suggested that I sprinkle (a little) over the dogs food.

My stoner dog is still alive & kicking.
Actually quite amazing - she's a Bloodhound over 15 years old, had "breast" cancer (& surgery), went through the carbon monoxide poisoning (with me & the younger hound - which killed my cat) & she's still doing amazingly well.

Life expectancy for a Bloodhound is 8-10 years.

Do ya think it was the herb....?

Retail sale has only been legal for 3 years as of Jan 1st. Usually the process of becoming homeless takes some time. In some cases it happens over night, but usually a string of bad events leads up to it.


The correlation though that I see between the two, is not that marijuana is making people lazy degenerates.....it's actually about the price of rent skyrocketing in the metro area due to the influx of people coming for the weed.

Not that I suggest/recommend/condone it, but I've heard stories of people that have stopped taking chemo treatments in favor of pot and done well. I believe that it is like everything else, a very good companion to treatment.

Pot and chemo do go well. It relieves the nausea related to the treatment for one. There are other things, Essiac tea, MMS, for a couple.
