Jenny asks…

Marijuana Survey (edited for easy reading)?

For those with ADD and other issues with doing research, I’m listing a much easier reference in a simply image : http://tokerville.com/images/history-of-cannabis.jpg

This time line image takes 2 minutes to read and brings those that have been lied to for years up to date on the actual facts behind the law on Marijuana. For those that want more details read the research sources listed below. The resources are from Government, University and Medical sources and are all reputable.

(Please inform yourself through the reputable resources from our own government, medical research and major universities such as Harvard before making your comment.
Note: Much of what “some” Americans know about Marijuana is misinformation for the purpose of fighting hemp production (which grows 10x faster than trees and is a threat to the forestry industry) and big pharma that wants you on their drugs.

The survey:
1. Do you smoke (explain how much or if at all)
2. Do you want it legalized

A new report from the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) pegs the costs of marijuana law enforcement in the United States at $7.6 billion annually and finds that escalating marijuana arrests over the past two decades have failed to have any impact on marijuana use rates or other indicators chosen by drug enforcers to measure “success” in the war on drugs. What marijuana law enforcement has accomplished, the study found, is hundreds of thousands of arrests each year, with the burden of criminal sanctions borne disproportionately by the young and the non-white.
Current marijuana polices, which rely heavily on criminal penalties, are “wholly ineffective at controlling the use and sale of marijuana,” the study concluded.

For the comment about Asthma:

Smoking cigarettes, mowing and a number of other things are also bad for asthma, but would you spend 7 billion a year and place millions of otherwise law abiding citizens in jail for smoking cigs or mowing their yard?
For the person commenting on driving:

I personally don’t want to drive after smoking, but reliable research that I’ve provided shows that there is no significant difference in the ability of to drive while high contrasted with those that do not. In the same research it showed a significant difference in those that were drinking (note: they had more accidents and drove much faster while drinking.. where those smoking drove slower and were more cautious)
For the person that doesn’t like the sources:

Harvard, US Government, etc. are not biased resources. I showed the resources because of the reputation and legitimacy of them.

If you want to argue against Harvard and the like then go right ahead. Ill stick to peer reviewed research.

Harvard… etc. etc. etc.

Ill stand by the research I posted.. It’s all from extremely reliable sources that can be verified through the institutions or our own government. Propaganda would be false statements of which I gave none. Each and every statement was not only true, but the sources were given to verify.

John asks…

Ongoing sickness?

Around two or more months ago I started getting cold symptoms and feeling unwell with temperature/fever, headaches, fatigue, etc., and I have been feeling ill ever since; I now have a lung infection and I just don’t feel normal at all. My ears are blocked, I have frequent headaches, am very tired and generally feel like I have a constant cold, on top of the infection, and also my digestive system doesn’t feel right. Before this I seldom got sick, and although I had severe asthma at a very young age I have not had any chest problems at all for at least ten or eleven years. I am on antibiotics for the chest infection but I still feel ill. I am eighteen-years-old and a strict vegan, and I don’t smoke or drink. The only other health problem I have is a vitamin B12 deficiency for which I have injections, and although my injections are not up to date I don’t think it would be affecting me like this as it never ever has before. It is as though my immune system has stopped working! :(

I will go back to the doctor next week if it has not cleared up, but I wonder if anybody has any suggestions as to why it might be, or if anyone has any similar experiences? Can lack of B12 impair the immune system, or could it perhaps be a parasite?

admin answers:

On going sickness can well be cured by cosulting a good physician and some tests done to know the specificity .Apart from that, to stay away fron such syndromes you can do pranayama’s from a expert as this holds the key to a stressfull and healthy life along with a healthy diet.Lung function can well be cured with special breathing processes that are learnt in yoga.

Paul asks…

Pre-Diabetes? My son is 13, has impaired glucose intolerance.?

Is there something he can take to boost his immune system so that the white blood cells discontinue attacking is islet cells.. or to SLOW the progression of the white blood cells that are attacking his islet cell? He has not had a BG over 200, but we are worried it is down the road and want to STOP it or delay it as long as possible.

admin answers:

Normal fasting blood glucose levels are below 100 mg/dL. People with pre-diabetes will have a fasting blood glucose level between 100-125. Diabetes occurs when a fasting blood glucose level is 126 mg/dl and above.Eat fewer calories. Exercise 30 minutes, 5 times a week. Adopt a low-fat diet. Loose 10 to 15 pounds. Here’s a website that may be helpful with your question. Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pre-diabetes.I wish you and your son the best of luck and good health.

Mary asks…

Why Are Some Musicians So Consistently And Thoroughly Overrated?

I mean what’s the deal here? Is no one else hearing what I’m hearing?

It should be obvious to Any Human with ears that…

Eddie Vedder is an atrocious excuse for a Vocalist

Keith Moon was a sloppy Drummer and wholly incapable of playing the same type of intricate Time Signatures used by greats like John Bonham and Neal Peart

Tommy Lee is way better at flying through the air and making videos with Barbie than He is at Drumming

Pete Townsend couldn’t reproduce 1/4th of Jimmy Page’s riffs if His life depended on it.

There is no way on God’s Green Earth that John Entwistle’s Bass Lines are more Complex than Geddy Lee’s. How do I know this? I have ears.

With the possible exception of George Harrison none of the Beatles were better than average Musicians.

There are about 5,000 Rock Guitarists with more skill than Kurt Cobain.

All these facts seem glaringly obvious to Me

Yet You constantly hear that all these People are the Best and the Greatest Musicians, this boggles Me to no end.

Why?

admin answers:

IMHO: Rolling Stones ( any album after Tattoo you)

Michael asks…

How about a cheer for all those bad girls? And all those boys that play that rock n’ roll? They love it like..?

admin answers:

“All this machinery
Making modern music
Can still be open-hearted
Not so coldly charted
Its really just a question
Of your honesty”
