Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

WAKE AND BAKE

While researching the pros of medical marijuana use, I came across a new study published in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology that claims marijuana intoxication does not adversely impact decision-making.


According to the clinical trial data at New York State's Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University, marijuana users performed tasks (even though it took them longer) as accurately after having smoked cannabis as they did when they were sober.

What ... are these researchers, high?

Just reading the report, I got all fuzzy and couldn't decide what I wanted to write about.

It's been four hours since I started this blog.

But, I wanted to make the point that ... uh ... hum



Currently, nine U.S. states that allow for the use of marijuana for medical purposes are Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

Far Out Man!
It's just a matter of time before them there munchies kick in!
Quick get to a 7-11!

I remember when nursing homes permitted smoking in specified smoking lounges. That all ended in 1991 if memory serves me well.

I remember being a kid and visiting family members at Perth Amboy General Hosp. Smoking was even allowed in patient rooms provided oxygen was not it use.
How times have changed,eh?

While researching the claim made in your blog today, I came across a study that concluded that all medical research studies are unreliable.

I have never smoked marijuana, but had a friend with terminal cancer who said it was the one thing that helped with his pain.

It is all a government conspiricy controlled by the Alcohol companies and Phillip Morris. Anyone interested should buy the book "The Emperor Wears No Clothes". It is ridiculous and should be legalized!
