Our purpose is to Support, Educate & Share information regarding the Many Common & UnCommon Uses and Abuses of Cannabis/Marijuana.

We speak about News Currents, Media, "Medical" Marijuana, State Legislation, Parenting, Breastfeeding, Legal Issues, Spirituality, Plant Uses and Preparations, Opinion, Fact and Truth.

We promote the use of this wonderful Medicinal Plant for Appetite Stimulant, Spiritual Centering, Treating the symptoms of Morning Sickness, Chronic pain, Glaucoma and possibly Curing/Reversing Cancer, AIDS etc... Countless Citizens find this plant medically useful and less harmful than disease causing prescription and over the counter DRUGS.

We are also discussing Hemp another misunderstood plant & seed, which has many wonderful non-medicinal uses < Fiber, Fuel, Plastics, Nutritional Value etc...> This is also illegal to cultivate in much of the U.S.
Also the subjects of spending less money on the "WAR" against Marijuana.

I just saw this thread and wanted to ask if you know what the effects of smoking pot would be on someone with Crohn's disease. Someone I know was diagnosed recently with this intestinal disease and he has been smoking pot for the past few years. He has an ulcer and is now on med for that and I think he is on med for the Crohn's too. He has lost a lot of weight from the Crohn's. I am not sure if the pot smoking would help any or would be harmful to his condition. Does anyone here know?
Thank you.

Want to say Hi here as I only popped in the Spring thread once or twice.
Now, how about some recipe sharing? Pretty please?
Good cannabutter recipe to start.
There are so many variations: cheesecloth, double boiler, butter in water for 5 hrs, etc, I'm not sure which to follow. Also, the amount of butter in proportion to the leaves vary too. I don't want to get sick.

My next venture:
Make breakfast or lunch with cannabutter.

TIA!

Less than a month until we get to hang out, all the NEW ENGLAND MAMAS!! (See? One more reason to move here )

I also hate the stigma - we are wonderful, responsible, professional parents. We partake on occasion, at night once ds is asleep. Most people would have no clue we even smoke and would probably be shocked. I honestly think it's less responsible to have a big glass of wine - at least for me, that impairs me much more than herb. Dh suffers from depression and chronic pain - and mj helps very much with those conditions.

I grew up with a father & a 10-year-older brother that abused pot, alcohol & other drugs at various times so there was always a big stigma for me. I NEVER smoked until I was 30 years old. Now that I've done it I can completly say I am glad I waited until I could really enjoy & appreciate it. I smoke (someday hopefully vap) with my husband & on a rare occassion with a few friends at night after the kids are in bed a few nights a week. I could drink alcohol everyday even before my kids go to bed & most people wouldn't think much of it, but tell them they you smoke MJ & : you are a bad person because of crapheads like my dad & brother giveing it a bad rap. I suffer from major anxiety & it helps me so much I am actually concidering getting a medical MJ card.

I also have been spoiled as far as quality. My 1st 2 or 3 times was decent stuff, but since then I've only had high quality sativa. I get it through a friend but if she ever moves away I don't have the 1st clue where to find more. Still niave & new to it I guess, it's only been a few months :
What you both said

I sure wish we could go but, DH would NEVER in a million years be interested in something like that He can be pretty lame sometimes I have tried to keep up with the forums but, there doesn't seem to be too much going on in my area. A few years back I tried to make it to a local potluck but, it wasn't going on anymore. Sigh, I can only dream.....

Well, at least it wasn't raining here today even if the sun only peeked through the clouds for a mere second. It was a glorious second.

Hey all I've been on hiatus for a couple of months because I am settling into FULL TIME MOMMY HOOD... I got corbyn back on May 5th 2009 and its been so refreshing and amazing. Anywhoo. Corbyn is 8 months old now and as busy as ever, he can roll front to back and he's 21lbs 10oz, and 31 inches long.... He can say mama, dada, baba, kitty, puppy and foot. And here's a couple of pics for you.
