All i can say is i am 81 years old and never even smoked pot never took drugs and i do not think i missed any thing.
I guess you never will-though just imagine that you could know, if you had really missed something.
Though it might lead to some regret, so maybe it's just better not to know.

Well I think it is pretty cool but unfortunately here in my state they put you under the jail for anything like that.

I toked for 45 years loved it, now my heart is diseased, i have COPD, both directly caused by smoking pot.
I'm greatfull for now I don't have the cancer..

I used to say i have to feel like a nugget to find a nugget, now i can't climb those hills to find that nugget.
I quit 6 months ago, Drs orders.
I'm hoping to regain some abilities to hike again as there's that other side of the mnt I have yet see and prospect...

I regret ever smoking...
Former pot head hoping now to live long enough to prospect with my great grand children some day good Lord willing....

Seems like the right place to post this..

The US Congress today passed a bill legalizing marijuana at the Federal
level. This may solve a myriad of problems legal growers and retailers
have had.

Before we all get too excited, I'm going to read the bill...there's bound to
be a few hooks to make the Fed's more money in the thing. I'd like to know just how bad we're getting screwed.

Unfortunately, it will never pass the Senate..

I’m allowed to grow 12 plants in my state (I don’t) and maximum 10 ounces at harvest LOL.
Those better be some small shrubs! Three adults in my household, 36 plants allowed.
People I know that never grew before are now growing, some don’t even consume any part of the plant, they gift it all away. There’s so much weed around it‘s not funny! Yet, there are those that line up at the dispensaries and pay $50-$60/eighth. So far it’s pretty ho-hum commercial product IMO at that price.

Gold Tramp, what proof do you have that pot caused your cancer? I first smoked in 1969 For over 50 years since I had the first toke I have never known or met anyone who got cancer from smoking pot.

Never said I got cancer I got heart disease n COPD read the dadgum thread.
I don't need to prove anything to you, I'm sure I've smoked much more bud than you ever have and that's a fact. I never missed a day of being stoned in 30 years I live in California enough said...

My last 3 pictures (above) were 5 bucks a gram! Including the 27% ! They sell 1.50 a gram, 3 dollar a gram, 5 & 6 bucks a gram, then the 30+ % stuff starts to climb

Sorry, my mistake, so what makes you think pot caused your COPD. You can get COPD from 2nd hand smoke, did you ever live with a smoker, ridden a lot with someone who smoked, or exposed to 2nd hand smoke? You can get COPD from air pollution, breathing in chemical fumes, dust, or toxic substances at work can also cause it.

Smoking pot can give you lung cancer or copd, like I said I smoked pot from sun up till I went to bed everyday for last 30 years...
My COPD was caused directly from pot smoke token on a pipe all day everyday
You can try to blame it on other stuff but it was pot.

Simple act of inhaling smoke will destroy ones lungs doesn't matter what type if you do it enough, I know this first hand.
Not knocking weed I loved it more than most and wish I could still smoke but facts are facts if I continued to do so I would of gotten lung cancer or had to live my life on an oxygen tank..
I wish it would of been work related then I probably could of got compensated but it was my foolishness being a hardcore pot head that caused my illness...

You are a gold miner, haven't you done a lot of grinding, sanding cutting, chipping, smelting, or cutting of stones or rocks in your profession/hobby? All produce crystalline silica which is a major cause of COPD.
