jump_mama_jump, I really LOVE my vaporizor. You don't get a lingering smell, the kids don't breath second hand smoke, AND you can vaporize stems and all.

is anyone afraid that the DARE program will encourage kids to tell their teachers? my dd is nowhere near that old yet but it's a concern anyway. Am i just being paranoid? Has anyone heard of this actually happening?

i completely agree about the 2nd hand smoke. and like you, the only time i partake is if she's sleeping or hubby is home and i can slip away for a few mins. i've personally never really liked vapes, but my opinion might change eventually.

on the DARE program, i know we've talked about it before maybe a few months back. i would no let my child go through the program, it's all propaganda lies. i remember when i was in 5th grade and my mother signed me up for it, and they would ask things like 'raise your hand if your mom/dad smokes'. i wouldn't let a dc go, or just call my dd in sick that day.
but we are probably home schooling anyway, so i really don't worry about it.

i've been so busy here mamas! we've been dry for quite a while, dh decided not to take the chess teacher position he was offered, he's been talking about doing it for over 2 years and it's just not doable because we live so far on the outskirts of phoenix. he's been expecting to get a job where he'd have to pass a drug test, but nothing that good has come up.

otherwise, i just stopped in to say 'hi'! i'm still around but don't get to post much. i feel like i'm always working or entertaining dd. i've been having some anxiety and have been a little on edge lately and hope to get a stash in soon.

DARE program

Yes, I believe they will purposely try to get info from the children. I remember the officer asking if any of us had ever seen one of these when he showed a bong... I homeschool though. There are many law enforcement realizing that prohibition isn't working. Here is their website. I support all that they are doing.

Heck with the fact that funding is so low for everything, cannabis is the least of the concerns around here in this meth infested town... I don't think they are making it a priority anymore... I also wonder if the DARE program will finally be retired... I will look around.

clear: not mature, will get you high, but very shortlived.
all milky: height of maturity, very cerebral high, more energetic high (this also depends on strain though)
1/2 milky and 1/2 amber: a heady high that you also feel as relaxation in the body.
all amber: what i've heard others call "couch-lock" all amber is a very physical, relaxing high. how dopey/tired you feel in addition to this relaxation all has to do with strain.
get a magnifying glass used to look at bugs or coins. with at least 24x magnification. you can see the trichomes (crystals) without the magnifier, but you can't tell their color without one.
Thanks I can't wait to see this! I wonder if many commercial growers go by this... Probably not, huh?

Oh how I love tending my garden after a lovely breath of herbal remedy! I am also a clean-the-house-with-MJ person. With the right strain, it can really boost you! I also do lots of creative writing and art. I've got two little boys, I've never hid it from them. I also vaporized all through both pregnancies and while nursing. Oh how it helped with let-down issues while nursing! Also with morning sickness and appetite issues during pregnancy. Here on Guam, a senator just introduced bill 420, to legalize medical marijuana. I'm going to do all I can to help get the word out!
Welcome!! We are so glad you're here

Does anyone know mj's effects on bm production? I thought I read that it decreases bm, but I feel likes it helps Maybe due to relaxation :sheepish

For me it helped, because I was able to REALLY let down. I couldn't tell you whether it actually increased the supply, but it sure let down a lot more than the ordinary (so I could have thought my supply increased, but it could just be I wasn't able to let down properly due to tension/anxiety etc).

So, here on Guam, senator Rory Respicio introduced last week, bill 423 (it was originally bill 420, introduced during a meeting held at 4:20 pm : ) that would allow doctors to give a certified recommendation for marijuana. At first it was that doctors could give prescriptions, but then revised to them giving a recommendation (what the hell?!) and would allow a health care center to grow and distribute to patients who have dr. recommendations...? I need to look at the bill more closely...

But our main local newspaper is offering next week's sunday opinion page on the subject, and I would like to write a letter. Any tips or suggestions on this? Sample letters to the editor? What would you cover?

What I'm hearing from the general public is that people are concerned about the abuse of the herb (they say drug...I say herb)...the bill is focusing on patients who have conditions that would be benefitted by marijuana.

Just wanted to add that there is a lot of emotional/ignorant discussion going on and people are already getting all high-strung about the whole discussion. I want to encourage the EDUCATION and awareness part of it all, and also to encourage those who genuinely believe in the benefits of this herb to speak not out of reaction but from facts and respect. Because I'm hearing too from those in support of the bill, emotional responses that will not get very far in the actual legislation...

like really tried to scare the crap out of their kids. and it seems to be working, but i'm not sure if I would want to go that route. I'm glad to hear that you know people who didn't go that route that it worked out for.

I guess it just really depends on the kid and the age of the kids. I believe their kids are 11, 8 and 4.
I think it depends on personality as well. My oldest, for example? It's prudent not to tell him anything unless you're prepared for EVERYONE he encounters to hear about it. Boobah, on the other hand, has no trouble keeping her cards close to the vest as it were. I could have trusted her to keep the secret at three or four, certainly (she is six years old today! ) but Bean is 7.5 and there is simply no way I'd consider sharing it with him. That said, when I *do* share it I will explain that a) this is something for grownups, like beer and diet soda () and b) that not everyone approves of it, and why/how. Bean knows that I will have the occasional beer, and he knows that his grandparents don't drink beer AT ALL; He doesn't discuss alcohol with his grandparents even though he's aware of it's existence and, again, he doesn't keep secrets. It simply hasn't come up, because he hasn't brought it up. He'll have to get to that place with MJ before I'm comfortable having that conversation with him. Does that make sense? It's a quarter to five and I'm half-asleep.

Have you done any research on using it yet? I've seen a few videos on youtube, but I wonder how high or low to set it. I saw one video where I could swear the guy was smoking! It must have been set at a really high temp. I do NOT want to burn my herbs! I heard that burning wastes it faster. Anyone have any tips for us first timers?



How high do you set your vape? Is it a digital unit? What tips can you share?
Jeez, one missed email and completely forget to check in! I set mine at about 340, it seems to work well, tho i'm thinking about trying it lower. I feel like i don't get the effects unless i can see me blowing something out.
I always save it afterwards (we have a container specifically to dump it in). It tastes and smells yuk so i cook with it. Normally I make banana bread after cooking it w/butter for about an hr. Gets you high and tasts yummy!

SIL just moved to cali and got her card...so jealous. I seriously want to move to a legal state!

Anyone starting a summer thread?
post #294 of 298
Hi! I'll join you over here... We don't smoke because of obvious job reasons(DH is in the Army!), but we totally support legalization! We will be smoking(or vaporizing, I didn't know that existed until I read this thread!) after the Army if the job doesn't test. We haven't smoked since we had kids. How do you smoke with kids around?
