  • Burden

Advice & Tips: I say read Henry David Thoreau's " On Civil Disobedience" and make up your mind to thumb your nose at the New Prohibition. I've smoked pot off and on since 1970 with no ill effects. Lots of laughter and music though. Don't be afraid of the DEA and don't believe the lies you've been told regarding the killer weed. It is far less harmful than alcohol!! Our government needs to wake up and do the right thing.

Advice & Tips: You should treat it as you would medicine. Find out the doseage that works for you. I started with one to two puffs at a time every 3-4 hours. To me it is my pain medication. It works better then any thing the doctor prescribed for me. I used to think neurontin worked well but I still had pain. I do not have pain as long as I smoke my marijuana.
