Stuff My Wife Told Me

During the Great Depression, a lot of people survived mentally by doing hobby stuff at home, and others survived physically by baking and cooking at home, which was obviously cheaper than going out to eat (not to mention that most people outside big cities had vegetable gardens and such).

After WW2 there was money around again, and due to the war being over, it was possible to start up manufacturing and such for the consumer market (also there were suddenly millions more consumers with all the boys home from the war). So the Evil Marketing Geniuses used their subtle (ha!) influencing mojo to convince people that…

Homemade stuff was no good, and only manufactured consumer goods and processed food was “modern” and “hip”!

And now here we are, and nobody has time to cook or bake or make anything at home, because…

Both husband and wife must work full-time to be able to afford all the manufactured stuff and processed food that YOU MUST BUY as a card-carrying American Consumer…not to mention the overpriced housing, cars that cost (on average!) as much as my family’s first house, and above all the insane price of health care and insurance!

In response to this.

About Old Hippie Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better. is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others. Old Hippie teaches about safe use of cannabis edibles, Canna Caps, vaporizers, dosing, and even microdosing.
