    Well, that’s exactly right about the downsides of MJ vs cigarettes vs alcohol.

    You can overdose on MJ and have severe anxiety or psychotic reaction. But, it won’t depress your heart and lungs thereby killing you as opioids and alcohol can do, because there are no Cannabinoid receptors in the brainstem and parts of the brain that control heartbeat and respiration.

    Recreation MJ is legal now in some states. IMO we should study it’s impact both negative and positive in those states before legalizing it in all states.

    Legalizing it would siphon profits away from criminals.

    "You can overdose on MJ and have severe anxiety or psychotic reaction"

    Don't get me wrong Sunshine but Overdose on Weed, I have never seen a person overdose on MJ, turn "Green" yes Green meaning eating to much of MJ laced food as it takes longer to procsess do to the Liver, so you are sort of spaced out the next day, but you do bounce back. As to "anxiety or psychotic reaction" Pot causing Anxiety switch the strain, chances are you are using a Sativa
    scale back and look for a Indica
    But Overdosing come on !!

    Overdosing meaning the person took in too much THC for their brain to manage.
    Example: some develop severe anxiety and do stupid things to cope with it. Some hallucinate and do stupid things because of it. There are known cases of high THC precipitating a psychosis in a genetically vulnerable to psychiatric illness type of brain/person

    I looked this up. I found this in a recent (2017) Lancet article, and the Lancet is one of the most highly respected medical journals in the world. Unfortunately there is evidence of a link between cannabis use and psychosis:

    https://www.thelancet.com/journals/l...de=lancet-site

    From the article:

    It is well established that cannabis use increases the risk of schizophrenia, not only from the early Swedish conscript studies3 but also from studies on people who use sinsemilla in London, UK, showing that high potency cannabis increases the risk of schizophrenia.4 Twin studies from Norway have shown that cannabis increases the risk of psychosis, even when controlling for genetic factors.5There has been discussion on the direction of the association, as none of these studies can rule out reverse causality, but it seems reasonable to conclude that cannabis is one of many stressors that can precipitate schizophrenia, at least in susceptible individuals.
    But there is also this statement:

    Cannabis does not precipitate psychosis in most users.3

    I am sure your definition of "Overdose" is a little different then mine, to me overdosing means opiate overdose or drug overdose, I guess being north of the States we look nat the word Overdose differently we hand out naloxone kits for overdoses.

    For pot it's Vit. C, and Honey

    My annual card was due to expire in about a month. When I first got it, I was on hold for hours, and my photo was rejected for a very minor detail based on a wisp if hair sticking up an inch.

    So, I was really worried the renewal would be onerous.

    The State has gotten its act together. The website was quick and easy to negotiate, and it all was done on line. As long as the card arrives in a timely fashion, it’s a success
