A week ago or so I wrote about how I’ve been using medical marijuana daily for 5 years, and then I suddenly got the idea in my head to simply stop using it for a solid week and see what happened. Completely cold turkey! So what happened? Nothing! OK, I…
No cold sweats or twitchiness or a sudden urge to kill myself or the return of all kinds of aches and pains or anything negative whatsoever.

+Mike Johnson right on! I'm in California so I don't have to be a criminal in treating my mental health issues, it's crazy how much people are brainwashed into thinking that marijuana is evil, etc.

We just keep toking, it's all about to change soon enough.

Peace.

Today marks exactly 5 years since I transformed my life as a legal medical marijuana patient in California and started this personal journey (and blog!). At the time, I was simply trying to document what I was doing for what I thought was a small number…

I know first hand.They take 100.dollars a month out of my disability check cause I didn't turn in a means test(a paper that states I have no other income)of course they don't take into consideration that I was in a coma for 8 days when it was due.The department head of eligibility at Bay Pines Fla.V.A.told me I was right but once the treasury dept.has it no one can do anything so I just have to pay 3600 hundred dollars and not to worry about it.This shit almost put me in the street.Thanks I have some friends.

5 Ways to Spot Cannabis Oil Hucksters and Frauds

As more and more people have been learning about the medical properties of cannabis, the quasi-legal fraudsters have been coming out of the woodwork. I hate them, because they’re trying to con sick people, and they’re doing it with bogus “medicine” that…
I hate anyone trying to con sick people, and they're doing it with bogus "medicine" that at best will waste their money and at worst might make them sicker.

No, you can't use patent law to prevent people from reusing printer cartridges, EFF argues in a new brief.
Printers aren’t all that expensive. Ink for the printers, on the other hand, can cost more than fine Champagne and tends to be far less delicious. Lexmark, in yet another attempt in a long line of schemes, is trying to use patent law to make sure it stays that way.

This is irony at its finest.Of course when they pump the utter nonsense of how it's for the good,it will sound like we're in Gippsland.

Introduction

Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better.

Beyond Chronic is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others. Old Hippie teaches about safe use of cannabis edibles, Canna Caps, vaporizers, dosing, and even microdosing.
