And as you state, you respected your contractual obligations, which I totally respect. In my case, I have adjusted my life to stay away from any random testing scenario. People can say anything they want about cannibus, but it is still illegal under federal law and one strike you are out for all kind's things such as a livelihood, permanently. Not worth the risk. I can abstain long enough to pass a scheduled test. If you can't, then maybe you do have a problem with it. But that is a separate issue, right ? No, not really because addiction is not a valid pretense for a test, as in it's for your own good in the end ...

I've been lied to by the government about it since the 50's looking back and been aware of the lies since the 60's. And have watched how the lies have been implemented purely for oppression ever since then. The same tactics are widely used for other political purposes as well.

As an aside, I am old enough to have taken LSD when it was still legal. The story of that drug and the government all by itself should prevent anyone from ever trusting the .gov about anything, ever.



You need to get a refund on that info packet you bought about me, it's got a lot of errors. 

I'll give you that I was just looking at a generic medical license, if they don't ask the right questions for your particular flavor then so be it. But EVERY professional license I've ever seen has a clause about Moral Turpitude, or Moral standing of some kind. I see that as an odd thing with you abstaining for your test, but going right back to the activity that they are testing for for your prescriptions/medical insurance/assistance program (pick the appropriate one, I think you've mentioned a couple of groups you have to plan for testing).   I do find it relevant as you were complaining in the other thread that the individuals earlier illegal activity should prevent him from having a license until he gets through all the proper adjudication of his circumstance.   And yet you have a professional license and have to plan around testing intervals so you don't get caught in your illegal activities. So the lawyer in question is working through the proper channels and is prevented from getting a license, and you hold a license even though you appear to be gaming the system and avoiding accountability for your actions (however justified they may be). 

For someone so concerned about illegal immigration, your flouting of drug laws and restrictions is incongruous.

I never claimed to be a long term smoker. I've smoked in the past, but quit long ago. The consequences were never worth it to my circumstances in the last several decades. I did say it would be foolish to out yourself on a public forum, but YMMV.  I've recently dabbled in the recreational stuff available here, but only since I don't have contractual obligations that preclude it and corporate masters to answer to. 

So, you have an Rx?  And given that you've had a license for longer than medical use has been allowed (and you've said that you have been smoking for 40+ years),  How did you answer the question regarding your use of illegal use of controlled substances on the physicians license application?

Personally, I don't really care what you do. But since you feel it's important to uphold the legitimacy of professional licenses and all.. It does seem hypocritical to argue over red tape in one circumstance, but gloss over falsifying an application in another.

Smoking pot doesn't do well to anyone. At 15, I was the first in my school class. Two years later, most all of my classmates did it. Talking the mid, late-70s here. On the way, many had to puke and fight uneasiness, when smoking their first time, and they were told by the more experienced, not to continue, nor try making it a habit.

I still think that some people just aren't gonna be 'happy' with it, as I still come across people saying, it doesn't do them well or always makes them want to throw up.

Thanks R_D.  And here I thought I had been around the block, once or twice.  This is a completely new problem for me.   I have never encountered anybody with these kinds of symptoms.

Though it fits with the forecast that social acceptance and legalization risked more cannabis-driven medical problems.

I guess it was so easy for many of us back in the day.   The hashish was strong but just expensive enough that most of us did it only occasionally.   The weed was weak; even the specialty brands (Thai sticks, Panama Red, Colombian Gold) were relatively weak by today's standards.  Many of us went to a high school classroom buzzed ONCE and quickly concluded that it did not work with learning.

I do not know what to say other than parents should minimize the disposable cash available to their adolescent children.   Shower them with goods in kind, if you must; otherwise avoid showering them with cash.

Cool band SirD!

Was wondering how the IDF was dealing with cannabis as that has been an 'issue' in most rich nation armed forces.   Found this:



IDF court to ease rules on cannabis use for officers and NCOs

The decision by Hayut may signal optimism for those still hoping Israel will follow through on its promise to legalize recreational cannabis.

Cool video SirD (see below).  Kenya, eh?    The co-host with the really deep, gravelly voice had me thinking that he was a smoker too.

Love 'cannabis sativa' meself but make no mistake, the drug can be addictive and have all kinds of negative impacts.
