Just A Guy Riding His Snowmobile Off A Mountain And Parachuting Down


Who needs drugs when you can ride a snowmobile over a cliff?  Yeah, I bet that would distract me from my pain…  right into a heart attack.

Still, parachuting is legal… like chocolate.  Seriously, almost any subject can be brought back around to chocolate. 😀

Police Say Penn State Fraternity Circulated Nude Photos Of ‘Unsuspecting Victims’


A fraternity at Penn State University allegedly set up a private Facebook page where members discussed drug sales and circulated nude photos of unconscious women, according to evidence collected in a police affidavit obtained by The Huffington Post…

Kappa Delta Rho members allegedly operated a private Facebook page titled “2.0” for nearly a year, police said. Prior to April 2014, KDR allegedly operated another version of the page called “Covert Business Operations.” At some point, a student discovered a topless photo of herself on the page and “threatened” the fraternity until they shut it down, according to the police affidavit…

One has to wonder how much alcohol was involved in all this activity.  And, if drugs were being illegally sold, where was the DEA?  Busy putting doctors in jail and shutting down pain clinics, that’s where.

And I don’t get it… There’s plenty of porn on the internet.  Why did these college guys have to take naked pictures of unconscious women?  Is that some kind of… turn on?  Or is it exciting because taking these photos is so wrong?

Hey, mothers of these young men, what do you have to say for your sons?  Considering the kind of behavior displayed by these frat guys, I’m afraid to ask what their fathers think…

Envelope Mailed To White House Tests ‘Presumptive Positive’ For Cyanide


People, people, don’t send cyanide to the White House.  If you want to send drugs to the President, send weed.  In fact, everyone should send a small bud to every member of congress. (And don’t forget their aides and assistants.)  And if you can’t afford to send bud, send… fake grass. 🙂

Marinol and Sativex vs. Bud


The DEA rescheduled the specific forumlation of Marinol, delta-9 THC in sesame seed oil contained in soft gelatin capsules, from Schedule I to Schedule II. On July 2nd, 1992, Marinol was again rescheduled, from Schedule II to the less restrictive Schedule III. The FDA and DEA also approved a synthetic cannabinoid called nabilone, brand name Cesamet, in 1985, for the treatment of nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy. Cesamet is even stronger than Marinol and remains Schedule II…


cmann303 said:  … A study was conducted for patients suffering from MD. Three groups were selected. One group would receive only THC, the second group would receive only CBD. The third group would receive a combination of both THC and CBD. The study revealed that patients must be administered both of the drugs at the same time to receive the “analgesic effects” (Or, pain-relieving effects).

This is the main reason why Marinol is not approved at the Federal level for treatment of many conditions and diseases… It is easy to take too much Marinol because it only contains THC and has no CBD to counteract the full THC effect…

Marinol isn’t approved at the federal level, but of course doctors use it off-label for all sorts of medical conditions.  I took it to combat the nausea from Oxy, but it didn’t help.  I finally tried Zofran for nausea and thought it did a pretty good job — unfortunately, it’s only “approved” for nausea from cancer pain, so my insurance company wouldn’t cover it.  I don’t remember the exact cost of one pill, but it was astronomical.

Marinol contains 98+% of THC which leads to more negative side effects while Marijuana only contains around 6-20%. [Probably higher than 20%, but not on average.  And of course extracts have a higher THC content.]  But Marijuana also contains CBD which acts as a sort of counter towards some of the negative effects…

tharedhead said [hey, that rhymes]:  The problems caused by Marinol being straight THC are what Sativex addresses with their CBD containing formulation…

cman303 said:  In most cases yes, the Synthetic-THC pill “Marinol” can take up to four hours to come into effect so it’s rather useless for someone vomiting…

tharedhead said:  I got some symptom relief with another synthetic cannabinoid, Cesament (Nabilone) but a therapeutic dose would’ve cost me about $40,000 a year. It was cheaper to move to Oregon and become a medical patient!

cman303 said:

But even with that being said, Sativex is still to expensive.
Medical Marijuana costs between $2.50 and $7.50 a day for most patients.
Marinol costs between $9 and $13.50 a day.
Sativex costs closely to $16 a day…

ocsufer said:  Sativex is sold as a mouth spray.

tharedhead said:  It tastes really vile too. But it is pretty effective, once you get past the nasty flavor. I eat straight Rick Simpson Oil and it tastes better than Sativex.


4. They claim marinol has been reformulated to not produce a high. Also not true. It DOES produce a high. It left me numbed out and emotionless.

8. You realize that opium is also safer than morphine and oxy, that heroine is safer than morphine, that the pure plant in almost every single situation is FAR safer than the synthetic and pantented drugs the pharmacetuicals make a HUGE profit on. I wonder how hard it is to turn that kind of profit margin on a plant.

Pain Is Stark

“What I was trying to convey there was the kind of waste land that was left after the war. It was a bit like one always thinks of war, you know, stark scenery and no birds, no trees, no leaves, nothing living. And just emptiness.”  George Martin

“I’m bipolar, but I’m not crazy, and I never was. I’m stark raving sane.”  Emilie Autumn

“I was given baby doll toys myself, and they proved a stark reminder that my life was expected to revolve around childbearing – just as my mom’s had before me, and her mom’s had before her.” Beth Ditto

Thinking of you, Roderick “Rudd” Walker


To receive a life sentence with no possibility of parole for a non-violent offense is an egregious miscarriage of justice. The only penalty more severe in the US is the death penalty. And the truth is, Walker’s unconscionably harsh sentence—coupled with the lack of medical care in prison—killed him…

Pediatrician Answers Which Is Better For Your Kid: Smoking Weed Or Drinking Alcohol.


The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence reports that alcohol use is a factor in 40 percent of all violent crimes in the United States, including 37 percent of rapes and 27 percent of aggravated assaults…

Binge drinking accounted for about half of the more than 80,000 alcohol-related deaths in the United States in 2010, according to a 2012 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention…  Binge drinking, defined as four or more drinks for women and five or more drinks for men on a single occasion, isn’t rare either. More than 17 percent of all people in the United States are binge drinkers, and more than 28 percent of people age 18 to 24.  Binge drinking is more common among people with a household income of at least $75,000…

Marijuana, on the other hand, kills almost no one. The number of deaths attributed to marijuana use is pretty much zero. A study that tracked more than 45,000 Swedes for 15 years found no increase in mortality in those who used marijuana, after controlling for other factors. Another study published in the American Journal of Public Health followed more than 65,000 people in the United States and found that marijuana use had no effect at all on mortality in healthy men and women…

Value of U.S. Cancer Care Questioned


U.S. spending on cancer care has been increasing more steeply and expensively compared to spending in Western Europe in recent decades, but without a corresponding decrease in cancer deaths, research published in Health Affairs finds. The finding raises questions about whether the U.S. is getting its money’s worth for patients being treated for cancer…

Even modern medicine is unable to deal with levels of chemicals in our food and water.  And it can’t do anything about economic deprivation, either.
