Holland decriminalized marijuana generations ago. Yet Dutch teens report lower levels of weed usage and availability than youth in the United States. 45% of Dutch teens consider weed easy to obtain, while 71% of American teens hold that view. “The Dutch have reduced the street market. Since adults can go into coffee shops, there are fewer street dealers, and since there are fewer street dealers, that reduces the opportunities for teenagers to go buy from someone on the street.” “[The Dutch] set out to reduce hard drug use by separating the soft drug market from the hard drug market, and the data in the paper suggests that seems to have worked.” So much for prohibition.

Pk, what are you doing in Deltona FL? Did you move?

I've been here about a year now! Where have you been? LOL

I recall mentioning that back in January of last year, I think I had put in a request for pray to have a safe trip. But than again maybe not. :)

Are you there for good? I know you're a lot warmer.

Yes RLH. When I got laid off, and than my wife broke her back we decided to move down here to be closer to my Mom. So we could keep an eye on her, and help her do things around the her house. My wife wants to move a little more north when my Mom does pass away. She really doesn't like the heat that much. So this might not be a permanent place, but we will see.

Chronic Marijuana Use Damages Memory

Many states in the U.S. have legalized recreational or medical marijuana. It helps to reduce pain and other symptoms for many people, but it also increases the risk of adverse effects.

Having a wife with lewy body dementia has made it necessary to decide to use CBD, now legalized in all 50 of the U.S. states. It is the use of THC that gives the high. I'm not sure of it's legality of use.

God is Love!~Jesus saves!  :D

Little Evidence Pot Helps Chronic Pain, PTSD

Even though pain and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are among the most common reasons people use medical marijuana in the U.S., there isn’t much proof cannabis works for either one of these conditions, two research reviews suggest.

I heard that THC inhibits REM sleep thereby reducing the nightmares of people with PTSD.  But there has to be a price to pay for losing REM sleep.

This is all very deceptive, and nothing but the clever ruses of Big Pharma, who have taken over the pot industry. Even if people use a vape pipe, they will, after prolonged use, stand a good chance of developing something called "popcorn lung" syndrome. There are many ways that the pot industry will harm society, and damage people's health. The competion between Big Pharma and Organized crime has not yet begun, but it will, unless they join forces. (God help us all if they do)  I asked a local "legal pot" place why they are marketing pot as "medicine" and then starting to sell it as a "recreational" drug. how can they still call it "medicine? I will share that answer in a future post. "Enlightening studies and infographics" are NOT what they seem

Recent studies have found that Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), an active compound in marijuana, can promote the removal of toxic amyloid beta protein clumps in the brain. These toxic proteins are known to spur the progression of Alzeimher’s disease.

I saw a fairly in-depth report on this on CNN a while back.  My concern is that THC, while it may delay, arrest, or reverse the production of amyloid proteins, it also makes you stoned.  I've met some "overmedicated" stoners that may as well have Alzheimer's.

At least the being stoned part is temporary!
