    They discriminated against us aircraft mechanics (and other "critical industries"). Bah. I'm in KY though, so no big deal. I can drink myself into a coma but can't indulge a pinch hit to relax in the evenings. I'm glad to see that the other drug conglomerates (alcohol, nicotine, and caffeine) have some competition now. I should be able to grow my own beer/cigs/coffee. I don't see pot as any different than alcohol. Either can be used to unwind in the evening or abuse to the point of death. Wait... it's almost impossible to OD on pot. Pot is better and actually has medicinal purposes while you can't say the same for alcohol. KY is moving in the right direction though. We're growing hemp now which makes a much more durable fabric than cotton could ever dream of.

    I kinda suspect that it will in time. Why should someone pay for a subscription they can grow or buy for free. I'm not going to if I don't feel I need to. I'll wait and see for awhile though.

    They get the same punishment as drunk or drugged driving. What's your point oly.

    No need to get into the WH, as The Donald sends a monthly newsletter to my FIL detailing all his achievements

    Was coming back from the store yesterday and saw my buddy out in his driveway with a snow shovel in one hand and a smoke in his other. I was across the street and yelled at him "What the **** are you smoking?" He had a heart attack last year and I thought he was smoking a cigarette. I was going to smack him, but he smiles and yells back "A joint!"

    I went over, we chatted for a bit, and we talked how odd it is for it to be legal. It still hasn't sunk it.

    New law in Ontario as of January 1. Texting, talking on the phone while holding it, looking at the phone GPS, anything like that: $1000 fine, 3 demerit points and lose your license for three-days.

    Second offence: Double.

    Third offence: Triple.

    How can you text without holding your phone? I've tried to forcibly make letters appear on my display though sheer force of will, but I guess jedi mind tricks won't work on android.

    House bill 136 in the Ky legislature legalizes medical mj for certain illnesses. I hope it passes.

    Pain management probably. In Oregon it's so easy to get a Med card for pot. I don't really see the need since that state is very liberal in allowing all
    residents
    to grow 4 pot plants for personal use. Unless you're bedridden it doesn't make much sense

    It's used for glaucoma also I think. I know it's effective for certain seizures.
