Medical Marijuana for Menstrual Cramps with Holly Walker

Medical Marijuana for Menstrual Cramps with Holly WalkerFirst let’s hear it for New Jersey Assemblyman Tim Eustace who is calling for allowing medical marijuana to be prescribed to alleviate menstrual cramps as an alternative to addictive painkillers, here hear. Reminds me of a story…

So have you watched the new cable channel VICELAND yet? Finally something different on TV. Though  just in it’s infancy suffering a lot of repetition, it is about time Americans got a little taste of outsiders both here and abroad. Learning about OTHER people from OTHER countries who do OTHER things. OMG, what next? Curt Schilling in ladies’ bathrooms?

At present it is much like a documentary travelogue going round the world looking at LBGT issues, how people dress, what the eat and what’s with the weed, I have learned more about things I never knew than most anything else coming at me.

The big political learn I got last night from watching a trip to The Netherlands from our weed reporter. What happened with their reversal of marijuana acceptance in that nation. They once led the way and are now regressing to the extent that the government distributes flyers telling neighbors to SMELL OUT other neighbors and report them to the police.

As the rest of the world moves forward they have been moving backward since 2001.  What happened in 2001?  Even 5000 miles away 911 scared their pants off, so out of fear they began electing conservatives to the highest levels of government to protect them. And along with that, conservatives being conservatives, came the law and order war on drugs.  It made me realize that 911 was a much bigger worldwide win for Osama bin Laden and company than I had previously thought. Worldwide we may have spent trillions of dollars on security better spend on just anything else.

It also caused me to come to terms with what shut this website down for a couple years – 2005 to 2006 when W Bush was RE elected and I realized I lived in the United States of Duh. I realized it was not so much the DUH as it was the FEAR.

It’s why gun sales have skyrocketed. People want to shoot down those airliners, they want to shoot those people with suicide vests under their coats, or who drop knapsacks at marathons, they want to shoot their fellow gun enthusiasts who get into our schools and all those bad guy criminals who will always have the drop on them.

Jimmy Kimmel Asks – Do You Have a Medical Marijuana Card ?

Jimmy Kimmel Asks - Do You Have a Medical Marijuana Card ?

With 4/20 approaching, Jimmy Kimmel noted that California was the first state to legalize marijuana for medical use, but he wondered just how strict doctors are about prescribing it. Personally, I wonder why some states still continue the charade, but that’s a rant for another day.  In the interests of science, Kimmel’s crew went out on Hollywood Boulevard and asked people the straight-forward question – ‘ Do you have a medical marijuana card?’  Meanwhile, the studio audience participated by playing #PedestrianQuestion,  guessing whether the person being interviewed had a card. Everyone was candid, and one person who answered in the affirmative, explained she needed the medicine for ‘children, jobs and life.’ Amen. Only one individual  is willing to share. See if you can guess which one it was.

 

My Dog ate Weed music video

My Dog ate Weed music videoThe Youtube comments on this video startled me, it seems that out on the West coast taking your dog to the vet because he ate your weed is as common as kale on you burger.

On a not so funny note if the stars align to give us Republicans in the White House, control both houses of Congress, the Supreme Court and comes a spat of stories about kids in ER from eating weed candy, it will be like beheadings and Paris and the end of legalization.

Seriously, stop with the eatables, it is only going to cause trouble down the line. In fact just about every reporter who has gone to the states to legally try eatables has wrote what a horrible experience it was. I agree, no control, knock you down, lasts too long, makes you wish you hadn’t done it. Making it look like candy, cake, cupcakes and brownies is going to cause trouble. Just get the state and the profit out of it and let people simply smoke what they grow. You know like tomatoes.

But the song is great, here are the lyrics:

All we wanna know
Is how much, how long ago
Was it brownies or was it just straight up bud
Don’t care if it either
Came from prescription or dealer
Was it laced with chocolate chips or was it not
Hey all we wanna do is help your dog

Your dog ate weed
It’s easy to see
Your dog ate weed
We won’t call the police
Your dog ate weed
But you won’t tell me
Even though we both know
It’s THC toxicity

There’s no harm no foul
If you just come clean right now
It will help us develop a treatment plan
I might give you the lecture
On how to store your stash better
We don’t want to see you back for this again
Hey we just want to help your canine friend

Your dog ate weed
It’s easy to see
Your dog ate weed
He’s dribbling pee
Your dog ate weed
But you won’t tell me
Even though we both know
It’s THC toxicity

Please don’t tell the doc
He must have got it in a walk
Don’t blame it on your neighbor or your kids
Cause no one really cares
About your love affair
With Mary Jane, just tell us if that’s it
Hey we just want to help your furry kid

Your dog ate weed
It’s easy to see
Your dog ate weed
He’s squinting at me
Your dog ate weed
But you won’t tell me
Even though we both know
It’s THC toxicity

Please share with your friends
Not your canine companions
