Let's all get stoned. Heh. Well, if one is going to be brainless and forget where the keys are at least one might as well be tripping. Then it doesn't matter much. Cool, man. Oh, look at the pretty flowers. Maybe this will get many Americans more relaxed and happy so they stop chasing pages around the desk or whatever. Cool.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Good news for aging hippies: smoking pot may stave off Alzheimer's disease.
New research shows that the active ingredient in marijuana may prevent the progression of the disease by preserving levels of an important neurotransmitter that allows the brain to function.
Researchers at the Scripps Research Institute in California found that marijuana's active ingredient, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, can prevent the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from breaking down more effectively than commercially marketed drugs.
Time to release all potheads from prison. This is all so ridiculous. This country always shifts from Dionysian drunken orgies to uptight sexual perverts. I guess both are the same just as ancient people recognized.
Anyway, many elderly lose their appetites. Give them a pot brownie and they will soon be eating happily again. See? Quite simple. And it kills the aches and pains of arthritis and other unhappy plagues of the elderly so why not get stoned? And since the elderly are retired, they don't need to be sharp as a rapier to function, indeed, I suspect the slipping of the mind protects the host from thinking about all the crappy things we did in life or the prospect of looming death.
That alone is good reason to get stoned.
Anyway, the sexual perverts on the right have spooked this country into a War on Drugs even as our biggest industry is the drug manufacturers. But then, they sell a lot of arthritis medicines and don't want us growing pot in pots and then eating it. This cuts their profit margins to near zero.
Mary J is laughably easy to cultivate. Just throw seeds on the ground, they grow like weeds which is why we called it 'weed.' Gads, this takes me back. Way out, man.
Next: LSD is good, too. Oh, wow. Awesome.
