I am from out of state and have a bit of anxiety about going to see Japandroids when I am not high. Can I treated?

Re: “Decolonize Cinco de Mayo at Cosecha

Not having fun on Cinco De Mayo is the hottest thing happening right now. Pretty much every news outlet has a story today about how everyone who drinks Margaritas should go hang themselves. Don't see why I can't slam tequila shots and chalupas in peace.....

Re: “Alex Oslance's Industrial Decay

I think "pus" has one s, "puss" is something else altogether. That doesn't look like puss.

Re: “Brookings Bombshell: America Needs High-Quality Marijuana Medications

Research is exactly what the medical marijuana industry doesn't want. Any true research that is done on Marijuana with rigid scientific criteria will fail to show Marijuana as a helpful tool for pain because of the obvious side effects. The salves and other formulations that do not cause cognitive alterations will fail against placebo because it is nothing more than that. Marijuana will not help people return to work, care for their families or their finances....because it gets you high. It is another panacea that will suffocate under it's own hype when it's revealed that the vast majority people that use this "medicinally" are actually recreational users or people with self diagnosed problems where the true problem is psychologic. The last thing that "medicinal" mj wants is legalization or research.

Re: “Medical Cannabis Faces Double Standard for Safety, Efficacy Compared to Prescription Pills

I clicked the "zombies incapable" link expecting to see some scientific evidence of neuroleptics causing severe cognitive issues. Instead it was just another pot propaganda piece. The problem with med-cannabis activists is that they don't understand the basic tenets of the scientific method or what constitutes statistically significant and non-biased research. These small case studies, prepared and presented by only the most ardent weed advocates, usually have no significant power whatsoever. They are nothing but small, biased case reports, but potheads spread them like they are the canna-gospel. Marijuana is great to make movies and concerts and most things better. It is not a fucking medication, no matter how much you want to believe.

Re: “Oakland Pot Doc Is Defrocked

Excellent article, but when it comes down to it there is no sense vilifying one corrupt doctor and lauding another. There is absolutely no difference between a good pot doctor and a bad pot doctor. Marijuana has no proven therapeutic benefits outside of the realm of anorexia and nausea in cancer treatment. If prescribed for anything other than that it is simply charlatanism plain and simple.
