How To Make Pot Painkiller Pills

Cannabis (medical marijuana) can be a perfectly good and safe medicine when used correctly. But there are always people who find fault with everything, and they complain: It’s unsafe (not really) It’s illegal (not in 16 states) It’s not effective (that’s not what dozens of studies have shown) People will pretend they are sick to […]

“States Should Make Their Own Decisions”: Obama

Last Thursday, members of Congress submitted HB 2306, a bill that would end Federal prohibition of marijuana completely and allow each state to decide whether they wanted to ban it, regulate it, or simply legalize it.

Old Hippie’s FDA Drug Profiles

I’ve started an interesting series on The 420 Times where I compare various substances — including their uses, effects, and side effects — to cannabis (a.k.a. medical marijuana). I’ve been surprised myself by the fact that even FDA-approved, over-the-counter, so-called “harmless” drugs like Benadryl have caused any number of serious side effects, up to and […]

Feds Knew About Medical Marijuana In 1937

Yesterday I made a post on Reddit commemorating my first full year as a medical marijuana patient, and referred readers to an online copy of The Marijuana Papers, a book written by David Solomon in 1966 and which has been long out of print. This book was instrumental in convincing me to try marijuana in […]
