It’s Been Way Too Long… And I’m “Legal” Now

6 09 2016

So, yeah, I’m a jerk and I don’t blog, even after saying I would.

Well, that’s the way I am… Sorry.

IMG_20160906_101439Now that said, I’m happy to be back here with you. What’s new? Well, another 4:20 (April 20th) went by and I forgot to post anything… Hmmm, saw some really awesome, retro laser shows. What else? Oh yeah: I now have a prescription for medical marijuana!

That’s right: after medicating for years to deal with chronic back pain (with chronic! lol), I actually have a prescription for medical pot. I had been thinking about getting one for some time, but it seemed like a real hassle with lot’s of hoops to jump through.

Or so I thought

I was at my physical and I told my doctor that I use pot for pain relief. He asked me if I had a prescription for it. When I said I didn’t, he offered me one, asking how much I use for pain, and after me telling him, he wrote me a prescription for medical marijuana. He also told me I was in pretty good shape over all. Yeah, so now, a few weeks later, I am registered with a medical marijuana dispensary, Canntrust and I just received my first order: five grams of Sensi Star, five grams of Diesel and five grams of Original White Widow. Having tried just the Sensi Star so far, I have to say that I am more than impressed with the quality of the product, the packaging, shipping and very importantly, the price. I don’t know why I was expecting it not to be, but the price was more than fair. Heck, for being a new customer, they even included a half decent grinder with my order. Most importantly though, I received my card saying that I have a prescription for medical marijuana, and that it is legal for me to be carrying up to sixty grams of marijuana on me. While that is way more than I ever carry, I like the piece of mind knowing that if I am ever stopped, I don’t have to worry about losing my weed and receiving a fine.

Yeah, so that’s what’s new!





Welcome Home Marc Emery!

15 08 2014

FreemarcWell, it’s been far too long, but Pot activist and business man Marc Emery is out of jail in the States and back in Canada. If you don’t know the story, here is an all too brief, and possibly inaccurate summary of what went on and why Marc was in jail in the U.S.: Marc had a store in Vancouver, B.C. called Hemp BC, and one of the things he happen to sell at this store was marijuana seeds. Not pot, but just the seeds. He did this for a long time with no problems, but eventually the authorities in the United States started to get interested in Marc’s business. You see, they didn’t like the fact  that this guy was selling pot seeds to people in the States. No sir, they didn’t like it at all. Who was he to provide pot seed, allowing people to grow, and then presumably consume and get high. The DEA called him a drug dealer never mind that he only sold seeds, and there isn’t enough THC in pot seeds to get an ant high. The US authorities charged Marc with conspiracy to manufacture marijuana… Now. Marc lives in Canada where  the rules are a little bit different than in the U.S. where the charges were actually laid. That should account for something, right?

Cannabis_leaf.svgNope!! When the DEA requested he be extradited to the U.S., our shitty Conservative government in Canada handed him right up. Hell, I was surprised he was delivered with a bow on.He spent the best part of 5 years in a foreign prison system for selling goddamned pot seeds.

Well, he is now out of prison back in Canada. I heard talk that he want to help drive out the Conservatives in the next Canadian Federal election, and I say good on him. I mean, they didn’t seem to do much of anything to help him and actually seemed happy to hand him over to a foreign government. Well, Marc, many of your fellow Canadians support you, the legalization of Marijuana and the ousting of this terrible Conservative government. We stand with you.

We are glad to have you back…

Marc Emery, Canada’s “Prince of Pot” is On His Way Back To Canada

11 07 2013

FreemarcPot activist, Marc Emery, currently serving time in a California prison for distribution of pot seeds has got the okay to serve the rest of his sentence in a Canadian jail.

Marc was extradited to California where he was up on charges related to his Canadian based business of selling pot seeds. Funny thing is, I think he might have had less issues if he were selling illegal weapons (that’s a joke – I have no evidence of one carrying a higher penalty than the other).

This is good news for Marc who, in my opinion, should never have been extradited to the U.S. in the first place.
