    I think he means his arm is fatigued from the unaccustomed circular motions. Unfortunately, hash brownies are still with us. And like last year’s event at an LA school proved, there are still those out there that think it’s funny to poison people with the THC+400 chemicals at events.

    “Baking Bad.”

    From a plant created by God.
    How many of those pharmaceuticals do you take that have so many side effects (many far worse than what the drug is supposed to cure, including death) that it takes half the commercial to list them?

    @somebodyshort: Think maybe JT has experience with that as passed down from mother Margaret?
    Incidentally, I like your choice for a picture – is it a take on expressionist artist Edvard Munch"s “The Scream”? I just learned that last night on a travel show on PBS.

    About now is the time for Alexikakos (however spelled) to give us a long, detailed recipe for brownies (again).

    My dad, an avid reader of the WSJ, said the reason marijuana was made illegal is because the DuPont Corp. had developed synthetic fibers – ones ending in “lon” – but couldn’t compete with the well known, long established natural hemp. And my dad, a medical professional, was not sympathetic to marijuana, or tea or coffee, even.

    hmmm, 400+ chemicals… That’s only a small fraction of what’s present in the drinking water of any average city. Cyanide, arsenic, lead, mercury, and all kinds of prescription drugs, just to scratch the surface. You can over-analyze anything and turn it into a monster. Case in point, the word “chemical”. Pure water is a chemical. Salt is a chemical. When you consider everything in the average plant that is a chemical, it doesn’t take long to come up with a number like 400. I think I’ll go fry up some ‘poison’ bacon, and some ‘toxic’ eggs, and wash it all down with some ‘venomous’ orange juice. Good mornin’.

    I see you join Nab in making up stuff.

    Sorry to kill your buzz, cube and nab. MCDA analysis scientifically ranks drugs by harmfulness and pot is not all that harmful. Google “MCDA the lancet” and see for yourselves. By the way, the worst of all drugs is alcohol, not a big surprise. It’s even worse than heroin or crack.

    About 35 years ago a coworker left a few pamphlets printed by a religious organization about assorted sins. One was titled: “Marijuana. An Unbiased Look at the Killer Weed.” If it was unbiased, “Killer” wouldn’t have been used and “Weed” may not have been either.

    My 42+ year career in electronics taught me that just ‘cause you can measure something, doesn’t mean the data is significant. At some point, extreme sensitivity means you’re measuring as much “noise” as the thing you think you’re measuring.

    Sure he’ll love them, Skyler.
    So much so, that he won’t leave any for you!

    Shabbat Shalom, SUSAN!

    It’s quite an amazing coincidence that this strip comes the day after I baked two batches of dark chocolate brownies for the Oneg I was co-hosting at the Temple last night!

    How about a Poison Ivy Brownie?

    Wouldn’t they have to be made from “scratch”? ;-)

    Hemp has 1/6 the THC of Marijuana – not enough to get high. Marijuana is a highly inbred cultivar, raised specifically for the THC. Hemp pollen will “ruin” a marijuana crop (so you can’t hide your mary jane in a hemp crop).

    Hemp fiber is 3 times stronger than cotton, and as soft as Egyptian cotton.

    Hemp fiber, while of superior quality to cotton (or wood pulp – paper used to be made from hemp also), is more expensive to process. Cotton just needs to be cleaned. Hemp has to be beaten to remove the pulp.

    Hemp seeds have no THC, and are extremely healthy. You can buy hulled (to prevent you from growing your own) hemp seeds at the grocery store. Make hemp cookies, add to your granola, add to smoothies. Hemp milk (made from the seeds) is rich enough to cream your coffee.

    There was never a new Prohibition amendment passed to give the Federal government the power to outlaw plants and animals (people like to like to lick poison frogs to get high also). Only state governments can legally ban hemp (or marijuana). The “commerce clause” gives the Feds the power to fight smuggling between states.

    There is no rational reason to ban hemp, and even if you think marijuana should be controlled by your state government, you should support banning the Federal War on Drugs. And legalize hemp. (And THC is still the best anti-nausea agent for cancer patients.)
