    Just to answer the question, Rx is an abbreviation of the Latin word “Recipe” (“take” or “receive”). It dates back to the days when all prescriptions were written in Latin (as many still are today out of tradition).

    Do you suffer from chapped lips? Try Liptozene. (Some users may experience certain side effects, including blurred vision, hearing loss, liver damage, kidney damage, higher risk of lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, sexual dysfunction, heart damage….)

    Cannabis sativa and its indica relatives have none of those side effects, yet it is considered worse than heroin or cocaine according to the U.S. Schedule of Controlled Substances.

    re: ashburnstadium

    From both physical and mental standpoints, marijuana is far more injurious than heroin or cocaine. From damaging your DNA, to harming your lungs more than a tobacco cigarette, to causing the person to be irresponsible and eventually taking their mental abilities away. The fundamental you changes. I’ve seen it often, because it was legal here from 1973-199. There are a host of other pharmacological effects.
    .
    It was almost unheard of when I was in high school to hurt themselves or to die from alcohol poisoning, but when people started mixing alcohol and marijuana, it became commonplace. It’s normally just reported as alcohol, not the two drugs together. What happens is no only is the judgement messed up by both, but the nausea reflex is suppressed (the one FDA use for mj is for nausea). And so a person can keep drinking long after a person only on alcohol would have had to stop from the heaves.
    .
    I’ve never seen a person become an idiot over time from cocaine or opiates, but many of those I went to school with have only a fraction of the brains they started with.
    .
    The strangest effect was that users who started in their teens never grew up mentally. They still thought like a 13 or 14 year old despite being 20, 30, 40, 50, etc. That is extremely common among Boomers and GenX in the Pacific Northwest
    .
    The worst effect, bar none, was what it did to children when their mothers were pregnant. Small craniums, seizures. all sorts of neurological problems. Everyone seems to fixate on fetal alcohol syndrome, but that requires large dosages and is still uncommon, while most kids whose moms who smoked marijuana when pregnant had some kind of physical or mental problem and usually more than one. It’s scary stuff.
    .
    Opiates, unless they kill you, oddly enough are the least damaging of the group. Cocaine if used long enough can cause congestive heart failure and destruction of the septum.

    Sounds too much like the meds my Dr wants me to take.

    When you go off like this I wish you would cite your sources for the information. Otherwise, it’s just an opinion.
    Thank you.

    Not only that but he forgot the major side effects – all the enforcement agencies have learned that it is a major source of income. They can confiscate almost anything on the flimsiest excuse and not have to show just cause!

    Not to mention “financial anemia”…

    It’s because of the potential damage it can do to your brain.

    Hmmm…could Curls be suffering from the side-effect known as “Fat Broad Syndrome”?
