I'm not partaking in this ado -- but for you stoners listening in -- I thought I'd include a link -- as I rarely do -- to my second cousin Tom Paxton's (Grandma was a Paxton) and John Prine's new hit, "Skeeters'll Gitcha" -- check it out!!

1:45 p.m. -- Where did she go? Tell her the premomition was just slightly off -- it was a house trailer, where she'd find a dishwasher who'd put her to work scrubbing pots.

Hey, people have come to town with crazier ideas.

Thank you John, and I must apologize for any less-than-kind words I may have uttered in desperation or self-defense -- my world is not as well-ordered as you maintain. I have my own insecurities, and I have never been able to sustain a lasting relationship. Whether that is the result of moving, on average, every 2-1/2 years growing up, I cannot say. I can say that the only constant in life is change.

You, on the other hand, have taken on the challenging task of rearing two troubled boys to responsible adulthood -- and observing you in that attempt, has only convinced me how unfit as a parent I might ever be, because I would take a much more heavy-handed approach. Just the way I was brought up. Mild offenses got a belt, serious infractions a coat hanger.

Judging by the result, I can't say that is a better approach. My hat is off to you, my man, and your infinite patience and tolerance. You really want the best for all, whatever else bounces around that noggin of yours.

Hey, forget about me, I've got a life

Everybody's got problems.

Some people have too much time on their hands.

Not me. Good night!!

PS Council -- Be GLAD John was never elected -- not if you wanted to ever entertain a rational conversation within a reasonable time.

Scott -- You just fished that crap up out of desperation. The first test admitted that no subjects had imbibed for at least 19 hours -- what was that supposed to test? How stupid you are for not getting high?

The second link was to a bunch of join links -- no substance there. You're grabbing at straws. I did not bother to check out the third link.

I feel sorry for you. These forums are your only life. You poor lonely soul.

Might I suggest a hobby? The Nuggets are coming on about right now.

You have fun, whatever you do!!

I'm going to shoot holes in another ludicrous claim "more auto fatalities involving marijuana-positive drivers" in Colorado the traffic mortality rate has REDUCED since the legalization of marijuana --


“Blood samples from 894 patients presenting to two Emergency Departments for treatment of motor vehicle injur[ies] … were tested for alcohol and other drugs.

… Based on alcohol and drug testing of the full range of patients … alcohol is clearly the major drug associated with serious crashes and greater injury. Patients testing positive for illicit drugs (marijuana, opiates, and cocaine), in the absence of alcohol, were in crashes very similar to those of patients with neither alcohol nor drugs. When other relevant variables were considered, these drugs were not associated with more severe crashes or greater injury.”

REFERENCE: P. Waller et al. 1997. Crash characteristics and injuries of victims impaired by alcohol versus illicit drugs. Accident Analysis and Prevention 29: 817-827.

“For each of 2,500 injured drivers presenting to a hospital, a blood sample was collected for later analysis.

There was a clear relationship between alcohol and culpability. … In contrast, there was no significant increase in culpability for cannabinoids alone. While a relatively large number of injured drivers tested positive for cannabinoids, culpability rates were no higher than those for the drug free group. This is consistent with other findings.”

Scott W -- Cite your studies. You state it as fact. Any study you cite can be refuted.

My last IQ test was 165, and I knew of two answers I screwed up and couldn't correct, immediately afterward. My last BP was 127/83. Don't be spreading lies.

As near as I can tell, the price for NON-use is endless tedium, a tendency to pontificate ad infinitum, and no other meaningful activity.

They're going to railroad this thing through, shove it down our throats, whether we need it or not, capitalizing on any incidental opportunities it presents -- they already have, they and their cronies, to the tune of $260K+ -- and they don't give a damn what you have to think or say about it.
