Guess if I'm going to try this, there's a risk that it will not get here and I'll lose 100$... or the local police will come knocking. 8O

Or you could end up like Jeffrey Dean Morgan, when he did a bunch of edibles and completely forget that while high he bought a brand-new Tesla and didn't remember doing it until he saw it parked in the garage. :mrgreen:

Thanos Thanos:
There is movement in a lot of places to see shrooms legalized, thanks to the research of recent years that's show them to be of major theraputic help for mental & emotional disorders, especially for PTSD in people who've suffered major traumas. If it ends up in legalization then so much the better for the rest of us. And hopefully LSD follows right behind psilocybin too.

I hope so. They are in the category of being banned because prudes don't know how to have fun.

They operate on a different part of the brain that things like opiates or alcohol, so they can't develop physical addictions. There really aren't good reasons to keep them illegal. Same for things like extacy.

Sign me up.

Like explicit advisories on music albums. It was the way to tell which ones were the best. :twisted:

When Locomotive Breath came out and started playing on the radio, they beeped out the word "balls". :lol:

Smart marketing, right there.

Our town's first cannabis store gets it's preliminary hearing before Council. Last chance for arseholes to crow and attempt to stop it.
I think it will cost the guy across the street two or three customers. The two that can come up with $40 every few days instead of just collecting enough empties to buy a joint at a time.

I would totally buy their product.

A woman I know said she'd never buy from a gov't weed store, rather stick with her underground supplier because 'you never know what the gov't will put in the weed'.

And I would like to find out what the Amish would put in there. ;)

That time the Ontario government paid a group of women to cut themselves off, smoke punishing amounts of cannabis, and weave belts

If the psychologists behind the Stanford prison experiment had pitched a reality show to Vice‘s short-lived television channel, it might’ve looked like this: 20 women confined together for three months, racing to weave as many belts as they can, while half are made to smoke joints of gradually increasing potency.

Sadly, however, this wasn’t the premise of a bleakly unsatisfying Viceland series but rather a bleakly unsatisfying science experiment that actually took place in Toronto in 1972, to determine how pot affects productivity. But it took more than four decades for the legend of it to surface, when the Toronto Star‘s Diana Zlomislic followed up on a tip from one of its participants, Doreen Brown. Zlomislic’s 2013 investigation — published in the paper as “Up in smoke” — has now inspired a feature film, The Marijuana Conspiracy, released to on-demand platforms on 4/20. (Variety calls it “mildly buzzy”; The New York Times calls it “shallow and tone-deaf.”)

The participants were never informed of the results of the Ontario-government-funded study, and the mystery of those findings — possibly buried for political reasons — was crucial to the 2013 Star feature.

But as Zlomislic tells CANADALAND, there is in fact a postscript.

“I found the results,” she says, “but they were never published in Canada, and they weren’t digitized at the time of the Star publishing the story.”

They wound up in the summer 1980 edition of The Journal of Human Resources published by University of Wisconsin Press, under the title “Marihuana and Work Performance: Results from an Experiment.” (If you have a library card, you can read it here.)

“It said that you can smoke pot, a lot of it, and still be productive,” says Zlomislic.
