    Good. But silly on the "no smoking" part. But small steps, here and there.

     

    Never would have imagined growing up in a country where Gay marriage is legal, Right-to-Die is legal, and Using (smoking for some) marijuana is legal.

     

    Small steps, a little here, a little there.

     

    Long MO, LO

    Smoking isn't the best way to get the drug in IMO from a medical standpoint. Oral makes a lot more sense.

    Ummm... you are aware that smoking is oral. Look up the definition of oral, I believe you will find that it means: of, pertaining to, or involving the mouth. Now, explain to me how smoking isn't oral? A pill takes 20 minutes to enter the bloodstream vs. 5 SECONDS from smoking. So, tell me, you're in pain and have two choices to alleviate it, one takes 20 minutes the other only 5 seconds, which one do you choose?

    edible intake has a much longer duration of effect so if it takes 20-40 minutes to onset but allows for an extra 3 hours of pain relief that is a wise tradeoff, and nobody can say that smoking is not harmful to the body. it is.

     

    plain and simple

    There is also always the possibility of using a vaporizer or e-cig type delivery system, which eliminates the harmful compounds created by burning plant material while providing quick relief/intoxication (depending on what you're seeking).

    "smoking is oral"

     

    No it's not. Smoking and "oral" have different entry routes into the bloodstream.

    DUI is already illegal, and you want to take away people's driving privileges for pot? Ok, but cociane and opiates are alright. Oh and if you want to find drugs more harmful to you than pot, it's real simple, open your medicine cabinet.

    This is the type of posts i expect from potheads. Someone has some Demeral in their med cabinet, so you rationalize it with pot use. pathetic, really

    No, if anything it appears that being utterly opposed to it leads to hallucinations, or at least flights of fancy. The arguments made against marijuana legalization rarely have any basis anywhere near reality.

    "no smoking" part is understandable due to strict no smoking cigarette law NY has in place. go to health dot ny dot org slash regulations slash public_health slash section slash 1399. The main point here is the legalization.

    AVT not moving like years past. Pot vending could pop this puppy but from the looks of this pump and dump, I do not see much push from the touts now. Has AVTC gone stale?

    vaporizer use is common. smoking is quick but after years waiting for opiates to take affect, anything is good. I've made my own edibles and had good success with pain. not legal here, yet, so I'm stuck with what I can get. usually the kind that puts me to sleep all day. time for a road trip.
