That is too funny outlier. I have to agree with you that it was all overstated. As soon as the government finds a way to make money off something then it will become legal, as it has here in Oregon. The problem is that the Federal laws to not work seamlessly with the state laws. Marijuana is legal for medical use and recreational use in the state of Oregon, according to the state, but you still cannot possess or use it on federal property, not even with a medical OK. Lots of confused (or even more confused) potheads running around who didn't see that one coming. We even have people standing on the corners with signs saying 'Recreational Marijuana for Sale'. It's a circus here.

Very well stated tony57. Just because something is illegal does not make it a drug, nor is is not a drug just because its legal. Laws do not make something a drug or not a drug. A drug is a man-made substance, made in a laboratory. Marijuana is not a drug. It is a plant. It can be turned into a drug though, by sending it to a lab, isolating specific properties and synthesizing it. Now you have a drug made from Marijuana. The 'pharmaceutical grade cannabis' is made with toxic chemicals. It is not a natural product. It is a drug. However, Marijuana in and of itself it not a drug. Marijuana is a powerful pain reliever and causes no damage to the body as does pharmaceuticals. However, putting smoke of any kind into your lungs, be it Marijuana, any other herb, wood smoke, or the smoke from a burning building, all will deplete your blood oxygen supply, which interferes with your body's ability to fight infection and disease. I agree with norbert that people should have the right to choose. I live in Oregon and this state recently went pro-marijuana. Shops popped up like convenience stores and many went bust and were bought up by California investors. It's a bloody circus over here. Just a few months ago people were getting their kids taken away from them for exposing them to the evils of Mary Jane, now the government has found a way to make money off Mary Jane so thats ok. Too bad for the broken families. I don't personally use it or need it but would rather my clients use that than a pharmaceutical.

Over the years I have created a 'safe-space' in my home. I do not buy commercial food for my home. Only Organics. I do not buy commercial products for several reasons, one of them being the increasing amounts of GMO produce flooding the markets. I do not eat at restaurants very often but occasionally will go to one and do not concern myself with whether or not things are organic, though will first see if there is an organic restaurant or if there are organic items on the menu. I have an allotment (community garden space) and grow veg, using organic soil, seeds, and plants. I do not use sprays of any kind in my gardening. Organic plants grown in organic are stronger and healthier and not subject to as much pest damage, except snails. I transitioned from non-organic produce over the years until I had used up and replaced everything in my home. It has been commercial free for several years now.

Eating organic produce that is in season is best because our bodies are designed to benefit by doing so. For example, eating organic berries in large quantities when they are in season helps protect your skin from the suns harmful rays yet allows you to benefit from exposure so that you can have the good cholesterol in your body converted into vitamin D, which in turn strengthens your bones, etc. But rather, we neither eat enough of them, or eat nutrient deficient commercial varieties, or eat out of season, then tend to burn when we go out in the sun, are told the sun causes cancer (not true), then sold a Vitamin D supplement and a calcium supplement that congests the vitamin D receptors and calcium receptors in our bodies, so that when we DO get a natural vitamin D conversion from the sun, or some usable plant-based calcium, our receptors are congested with synthetics and cannot process it. The synthetic vitamin D supplements and calcium supplements are not fully assimilable and so eventually we end up with a deficiency anyway as the body uses up its resources trying to digest synthetics. We tend to have our favourites and don't like to switch off when the seasons change. It doesn't help that the markets pick fruit way too soon and the fruit sugars do not have time to develop properly. Eating unripe fruit or fruit that has been picked too soon actually acidifies the body, rather than providing a benefit. I try to eat in season but admit I am not very good at it, except in the summertime. I rarely buy tomatoes out of season even organic, as they have no taste and my body can tell the difference.

I am what I would call Vegan + Honey. Vegan is quite a political jacket and many are in it more for the well being of the animal kingdom rather than for health reasons. I am a Vitalistic Herbalist and a Nutritional Herbologist. I have transitioned from the typical American diet of Meat (including fish), dairy, eggs, commercial flour, etc., to where I am today for health reasons. In doing so I completely reversed out my pre-diabetic condition, my high cholesterol, my failing pituitary, pancreas, adrenals, and liver. Along with the dietary changes I made since 2002 there were herbal cleanses, formulas to rebuild my pancreas, liver, adrenals, etc. I enjoy my dietary lifestyle and having learned what causes disease in the first place, there is no way I would ever want to go back. The reason I say I am Vegan + Honey is so that I do not offend any hard-core Vegans. I do not call myself 'vegetarian' because then everyone tries to feed me cheese, dairy, or eggs. It's just easier to say Vegan + Honey. I also lost 70 pounds on my journey. I am still a work in progress but have no need of any prescription medications and use no over the counter medications either.
