Resource Sticky


Welcome, mommysherry & ilsesthings we are pleased you could join us!

A few of our tribe members have asked about a sticky of sorts for our tribe, but I think the mods just post one sticky for the forum policies. On the welcome page of every thread that we carry from season to season, we post our links and mission statement. I think that is the closest we can get to a resource sticky. If anyone has suggestions on how to improve that to better serve our tribe, please feel free to pm me or CanadianHippie - she's volunteered to host our thread this season

Thanks, canadianhippie...maybe anyone that has some good links could just post them and then we can just add them to the other links. When we do the fall thread they can all be on the first post like normal? That seems to be the easiest way IMO. I remember looking up those links when first joining and liked them, but it would be nice to categorize general mj, mj while BFing, mj while preg, etc.

posting under an alias as dh is extremely sensitive about this, but I just gotta say... i am a marijuana mama! MJ has been so gentle with me and I am going through morning sickness and feel like this herb was made for helping with this ailment. she also eased my morning sickness with my last pregnancy, and I knew the day it was time to stop and never missed it after.

Blessed be the mother Mary... my grandmother's name was Mary Jane, which was not a coincidence... the other was Light (Lucia)... we learn from our mothers who to trust

i wish i could praise her openly, but such is the nature of our times, and the nature of my place in existence right now

The edited version is awesome! As far as the fun stuff, I think it's great personally but maybe clear it with a mod first. Might not go over too well... Just sayin

i have heard mostly europeans mix their bud with tobacco, not for me. i do not enjoy the cigarette buzz in the least, plus if i wanted to smoke a cig, i'd smoke a cig and not the mj.

Oregon Medical MJ

Hey there, I have a question for you. One of my good friends has fibromyalgia and is interested in getting her card. They'd grow 4-5 plants in their garage. How safe is this? I'm worried that she'll get in trouble, because I read that while it's legal in Oregon, the federal government can decide to prosecute. Is this something she could lose her kids over? Even for one night? Because her kids, in foster care for even one night is a bad idea

What do you Mama's think?

You're mistaken; Recently a law has been passed preventing the federal government from prosecuting medical marijuana card holders. It may vary from state to state, but I think that as a medical card holder you [or your designated caretaker] can grow up to six female plants for personal use.

Love the magical herb!

Shell: I love what you posted "Know yourself, know your body, know your herb"

ldavid24: I too get congested and lately it's all the time... I think I'll take the suggestion on a previous post about the netti pot...

Earthmama: I smoked during pregnancy as well as during breastfeeding with absolutely no problems to me or my daughter who is very bright and doesn't get sick.


I would love to find a cheap vaporizer, I hate smoking but I prefer the pipe although the joints give me much pleasure in a social setting, while sharing with others, etc...

I love to see how full this thread has become. It goes to show that many more of us are coming out of the closet and recognizing the many wonderful benefits of mj.

My favorite reason for using mj would be the spiritual qualities it provides me. That has got to be the most awesome benefit... meditative and helps me be present.

Have a lovely week MJ Mommas!!

More accurately, the Department of Justice has elected to not pursue medical marijuana cases.

Thanks so much for this, and for your post, Otto. Good to know. So then, does anyone happen to know a doctor in or around Benton County that she could go to? Because her doctor won't prescribe it.

subbing just so that I can learn from you mamas.

Hi Mamas! I used to belong to this group awhile ago but our computer fried and haven't been on for almost 2 years now so I'll re-introduce myself. I'm Jeri... I don't actually use MJ regularly at this time but have in the past to help curb my OCD tendencies and during pregnancy for morning sickness with my son but my DH uses it medicinally daily and has since the day we met. He is bi-polar, has social anxiety and PTSD. The use of it helps him to cope with daily life. I wish we lived in a state where it was legal for medicinal purposes but alas, Ohio is not very liberal in it's thinking on well, anything (except vaccines, thankfully)

My son and daughter are not aware of what it is that Daddy smokes... they've never really known any different so I think they assume they are ciggarettes (which unfortunately he also smokes)... My step-daughter has known for about 2 years and my step-son has just recently found out in the last month. They, so far, have not tried it themselves and I hope they continue to wait until they are a little bit older just so they can more understand that it can and is a wonderful alternative to modern medicine and not something to be toyed with. Their mother is very anti-marijuana so I worry about her finding out and taking him to court to try to take his older children away from him... but I know I don't have to worry about my step-daughter being the one to tell her but my step-son is not quite so mature and therefore might say something. But DH trusts that he won't say anything... and I will admit that since he has found out, things have been going smoother around here. I suspect that he's always known that my step-daughter and husband have always had secrets between them and now he feels like he was brought into the mix and has some sort of new bond with DH for knowing. I just hope he doesn't get mad at DH and open his mouth to his very mainstream mother. We shall see. Anyway, that got long winded, sorry... lol

I don't know, he might. He has a number of conditions that are apparently eligible. The problem is that is looks like it would take awhile & we don't even know if it would help. He's slowly starving to death now, not sure we have time to get a card & wait to get it & find out if it actually helps.

I just wish I had some ideas.

Were the people who suggested it IRL friends? Or online. If they are in real life than they might be able to point you in the right direction.
post #200 of 319
No, a few people here suggested it in a thread about him wasting away. My best friend years ago & her husband used to do it a lot, but I mentioned it to her & she changed the subject, so I think that's unfortunately a dead end.

I feel so lame that I can't even figure out how to find pot.
