I'm in the far east valley, probably around an hour or so from there. Phx is HUGE so it's nice I live on the outskirts, but still too "city" for this country girl! How's deer valley?

Very few. Almost everyone that I surround myself with is holistic/natural type mamas, so DH seems to think they're all smokers too. I think that's such a misconception, the few that I have brought it up with definitely don't smoke now, and probably never have. It sucks when you see someone suffering and you just want to tell them about the benefits. I hear ya about the issues w/anxiety and mj, I used to have that too. I got really dizzy and nervous smoking unless home and alone or w/DH. I've used it for depression for years, and it now helps any anxiety I have too, but only if I consume in a "safe" (comfortable) place.
I've been a bit MIA here, but welcome everyone new! I've had a lot of health issues to work through recently and I must say how extremely happy I am that I have access to MJ. It's helped me SOOO much! I'm able to sleep, eat, and calm myself and it makes me want to cry just thinking about what state I'd be in without it. It is so unfortunate the bad rap it gets, and how many abuse it. At one point we found out both are neighbors were dealers, leading to a shooting in front of our house!! What a shame something so good can turn into violence like that...all b/c of the strict regulations. I can't wait until the day we can talk about it openly, grow it freely, and enjoy it.
Peace my mj friends, hope you all are able to burn one down whenever life gets you down:)
