    Ages ago in his standup, Robin Williams joked about the difference between cocaine- and marijuana- enhanced motorists. The former are speed demons while the latter are like “I’m doin’ five.”

    How long til Colorado finds out if Williams is right?

    Maybe pot should be rated in number of joints.

    Cocaine is not nearly as bad as tobacco and alcohol. Now that weed is legal it’s time to turn our attention to other chemical brain scramblers (as long as they are not GMO, which are really, really bad).

    As to the GMOs, have we not been modifying our plants for thousands of years? But now that a corporation can do it faster it is evil?

    Marijuana calms, cocaine excites. And depending on the dosage can ease pain.

    @DEAN;

    it is not the same. has nature been splicing DNA from fish to put into plants? didn’t think so. Has nature been making plants resistant to chemical weed killers like roundup so they can spray the heck out of them; a chemical that remains in the plant as it is taken up by the roots as are all chemical fertilizers as well? a chemical that is toxic (read the warning label sometime).

    That is the (well, one of the) difference between what nature does and what man did until the evil known as mansonta (change the a’s to o’s and visa versa) came into being almost 100 years ago.its very existance is pure evil. they con’d the fda into allowing them to patent seeds! farmers have to buy them every year now! still think you know of what you speak?

    @rpmurray: maybe short term cocaine is “harmless”; but i can show you some people who are not what they once were due to that drug, and others in the same boat from the use of others, whether legal or illegal. i’ve tried some of them.

    fortunately i don’t have an addictive personality and it was easy for me to stop. including smoking after a number of years.Now i am drug (prescription or otherwise) free, and eat only organic, only grass fed (beef), and no nothealthy choice tv dinners or other “healthy” sounding foods.i actually read labels. yes, odd as it seems, i do not believe any claims and read ingredients. if i don’t know what it is, i buy the product and investigate the label. i usually return the product for a refund. no artificial sweetners, dyes, colors, flavors. no sugar as it contibutes to candida (if you crave sweets and simple carbs, you likely have candida, which will harm you slowly, kinda similar to smoking, but obviously not the same).

    there is a lot to look out for to keep healthy. it is a journey. the goal is to know more about your health next year than you did this year and make improvements even small ones. but its your life.

    i had a friend tell me its about quality of life, not quantity. thats why he enjoys pizza and beer.

    i told him i agree, which is why i will not visit him when he has a colostomy, or is taking diabetes drugs, or is lying in bed hooked up to a dialysis machine, or can’t reach the top cabinet because he is obese.

    yep, its about quality. how do you define quality of life?

    Actually, nature has been. The majority of many organisms’ DNA is spliced from other organisms by naked katamari-type virus strands. The viruses don’t have shells, they splice host DNA into themselves, move on to other hosts, splice copies of themselves into their new hosts, pick up new DNA, move on. Corn’s genome is the most famous example of massive amounts of foreign DNA being spliced into into it by these naked viruses. The human genome also has a significant amount of foreign DNA spliced into it by them.

    The problem I have with marijuana is the smoking of it. We do not need another lung damaging substance. There are more safer ways of dosing oneself.

    “a touch of paranoia..” if it’s legal then, the reason for the paranoid effect is no longer present.

    The problem with GMO technology is not the technology itself, but the fact that it’s being used by corporations who are, by law, amoral—concerned only with the short-term bottom line and indifferent to any larger societal costs that go with ther short-term profit. This is true of both GMO tech and older technologies like selective breeding and hybridization. GMO technology just lets them do it faster. If the FDA, USDA and Congress actually did their jobs, looking after the public interest instead of the next infusion of cash from lobbyists, GMO would be nothing to worry about.
