    I think this is a situation where raw numbers tell a better story. Now, this is a year from legalization, not a calendar year, but that shouldnít much affect the point here.

    NV traffic fatalities:



    2015: 321
    2016: 329
    2017: 305

    On the flip side, pedestrian fatalities are up.

    My best guess is that this is a combination of fewer people driving, thus the pedestrian increase, and the way the ďGreat RecessionĒ greatly and negatively impacted visits to Las Vegas, where my guess is a large percentage of these fatalities occur. As things hit, trended down, and as things recovered, trended back up.

    Besides my actual job, this subject has gotten very personal. My life partner's mom has late stage breast cancer, fucking Russians do not go to doctors until you drag them there. She is now going through chemo w 4 different drugs at once. It is harsh and just an awful experience. She has never touched weed at all till this. I had my edible chef NY make her favorite orange chocolate with heavy dose of cannabis 84MG. She has half at a time and it gets her through the nausea and in fact while she has lost hair but she has hardly lost any weight at all and says the chocolate is the only thing getting her through it.

    Those that oppose it need to sit down with her and explain why it should not be legal. I doubt many have lost that much of their humanity they would be able to. You are either ignorant or have lost a significant part of your humanity to oppose this. Also, cancer is treatable if caught early rather than late stage, people go to the fucking doctor.

    I think it should be legal, but it impacts me zero, in Canada, America, anywhere.

    Legalize and use proceeds to lower taxes. Never happens that way. First the lottery then casinos now pot. Never helps you one bit to keep more of your hard earned money.

    Thank you Governor for implementing most of all the remedies we crafted in the Marijuana Justice Act at the federal level. Such an important step to remedy the effects of the overtly racist war on drugs. Thank YOU

    Young people in liberal states use more cannabis, but have lower rates of dependence

    https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/24/1...l-conservative

    Young people living in liberal states consume more marijuana, but have lower rates of marijuana dependence, according to a new study from Columbia Universityís Mailman School of Public Health. Crucially, this finding is true regardless of whether the state legalized medical marijuana, suggesting that the broader political climate affects how people use the drug. It also serves as a reminder that the effects of legalization will look different in different states.

    In general, people in both liberal and conservative states are consuming more marijuana. In a span of about eight years, ending in 2011, the percentage of people ages 18 to 25 living in liberal states consuming cannabis grew from 33 percent to about 37 percent. In contrast, the numbers for the same age group in conservative states went from about 25 percent to 26 percent.

    Similarly, fewer people in both liberal and conservative states are struggling with cannabis use disorder. People with CUD experience withdrawal symptoms like mood and sleep problems if they donít consume cannabis for a while, and canít stop using it even if it negatively impacts their life. The rates of CUD fell to 17 percent from 20 percent in liberal states. However, CUD rates only fell to 18 percent from 22 percent in conservative states despite fewer people in conservative states using marijuana to begin with.

    Default Should Marijuana be legal

    So I thought I would share a funny/crazy story.

    OK so most of you know my wife has this horrible chronic pain issue called CRPS, and she takes awful medicine for it. Most also know about her accident and what happened and why she couldnít take medical marijuana. Well now sheís able to. So we went out to the dispensary with her card and got her some edibles and a little bit of smoke. My wife knows how to smoke marijuana, she hasnít smoked in probably 25 years, but is certainly pretty experienced. So she did a little of the stuff when my daughter was at school on Thursday and man it worked unbelievably! Didnít need her pain medicine and she felt great. And she seemed fine, not high at all. So we were thrilled and she actually cried a little. Thatís how happy she was not to need those awful opioids, and actually got some real relief from the 24/7 pain. Itís like how can pot be illegal anywhere, but the opioids arenít??! So yay for her!! But this story isnít about that or my wife, itís about me.

    Iíve been having a really hard time sleeping for a while, and I hurt my back a few months ago lifting my amp into my car. Most of it is just stress and I think thatís probably making the pain worse than it really is. And it really bothers me at night lying down. And I just havenít felt like going to the doctor about it. So my wife suggested on Friday night to try one of the edible gummies, see if it helps me sleep. It helps her and itís for that. And our daughter was at a sleepover so I figured what the hell, maybe Iíll get a good nightís sleep. And mind you, I havenít smoked pot since my freshman year of college and I only did a couple times in a water bong...so like 30 years ago. And Iíve heard many stories of how potent the edibles are, but I figured Iíll have one like the guy told us and that will be it. So I eat one. Kinda gross tasting but ok. So I go back to playing my guitar. And Iím fine. A good hour passes and I really donít feel anything. And Iím like is this for real? Thereís no possible way I have any tolerance for this, I mean I donít even take aspirin that often. My wife says well OK itís been an hour and a half try one more. So I ate another one, still nothing.

    Finally I try go to sleep. About 2 1/2 hours after I took the first gummy it hits me like a freight train and my mind goes insane. And when I say insane, I mean INSANE!!! I was so fucked up and so fast I didnít know what the hell was going on. I was so high, I thought I was gonna die. I woke my wife up and she was like what the hell happened and you know Iím babbling nonsense, Iím just crazy. She was trying to comfort me and calm me down, but I was having none of that. I was paranoid, I was having massive anxiety, my mind was racing all over the place, and the crazy thing is I can remember everything. Itís not like getting drunk where you forget shit, you remember everything the next day. So I had no choice but to ride it out but I was so scared, I thought I was gonna be like that forever. I remember pacing the house, trying to watch tv, even tried to eat, but I was completely out of my mind. Eventually I just fell asleep I guess! Woke up on Saturday morning and was pretty much back to normal, but I was a little lethargic and worn out the whole day. I just felt a little off. I think now, going to bed Sunday night is the first time I feel pretty much 100% back to normal.

    I am never fucking doing that shit again. I cannot believe how fucked up I was and how scared I was. My wife felt so bad. I should never have taken a second one after the first one wasnít working, because obviously it was! I mean you have to wait several hours for these fuckers to kick in, and I knew that. I knew all the horror stories and did a second one anyway. So now I lived my own horror story. It was like being on LSD, well how I imagine LSD must feel. Itís like I was not part of my own body and time just crawled. And just the crazy thoughts, good grief. I prayed for my death, I really did.

    So thatís my idiot story of the weekend. Basically donít fuck around with those edibles!

    Wow! Like that scene in Wolf of Wall Street, huh. Where they pop a bunch of those because the first didn't seem to work.
