On a different note . Yesterday while riding atvs with a big group some one pulled out a doobie . The thread instantly came to mind and thought , Hey why not . I felt the strong urge to perform an experiment '' strictly scientific
'' and only for research purposes so I could make a well educated analyses on the matter .
In my findings of my legs weighing a ton , extream focus on the trails, chink eyes , a terrible urge to flop out on the sofa and a numb throat . It did not on the other hand find it help my back pain out or help with the fact I had one pants leg and shoe full of ice cold water .
The results of my purely scientific experiment yielded the fact that It does not help with pain that much . Makes you lazy , makes you over focus on things , and makes your throat feel strange .
Final analyses : Its not for everyone and reminded me why I dont smoke it
My experience generally matches your own. No munchies though?
Anyways, as for pain, I have had some relief from marijuana in the past. I had actually messed up my back at work when I slipped on some ice. It hurt like hell for a day before I went to my brother-in-law and asked him about smoking with him (he always has it on hand).
Believe it or not it did help (for about three or four hours). It didn't take all the pain away like some pain killers do, but I was also functional in a way that I wasn't before I smoked it and in a way that I wouldn't have been with a more serious script.. I was feeling sleepy, yes, but not anything like what opids will do to me. Generally I feel that Marijuana is fine if you want to smoke it. For me, if legal, I would smoke it from time to time (same as how I drink) for recreational purposes and take it when needed for severe pain. That said, I still wouldn't use it (if legal) and my job didn't permit its use. Of course, I could always find another job
Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once its realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.
