Re: “Trimming for Ramen

I also want to point out that students can still study, read, or catch up on their media research while trimming, furthering the amount of freedom a student has, and therefore giving them a more successful chance in the schooling they're paying too much for. Students in the food industry, say, can't do a lick of studying while on the job, lest they be fired for trying to better themselves.

Re: “When Weed is Legal

Personally, I'm for legalization for those of us who simply can't afford to go through the medical "mumbo-jumbo" for documents that can easily be forged or falsified in some way, like me, but think that only the LOCAL community should be allowed to market, while other corporate endeavors with their own scheming intentions and objectives beneath their belts should be completely nixed. Weed has, sadly, somewhat become Humboldt's backbone, and the growers enjoy doing what they're doing, just as the local farmers enjoy growing their goods. If only individual counties could "close the gates" to corporate society... but I think that what we CAN do as a community is simply not buy corporate weed and get all of our supplies from the nicer, more endearing and understanding local suppliers, since their main intent doesn't rely on the propaganda and "soul sucking" feets that, say, Big Tobacco relies on. I kind of feel that this legalization effort is putting this healing herb up on a pedestal and is making it a much bigger deal than it really is. I am sad, however, that it is being lumped together with the negative and harmful "drugs" (alcohol and cig's), as this completely and totally signifies this herb for recreational use, which, for many, it serves as a basic notion of survival for whatever reason, whether it be pain, psychological, or even emotional trauma, not to mention the many cases of panic and anxiety attacks caused by the hustle and bustle of modern society.
Also, to the comment about the increase in use, I think all that will come out of that will be an increase in people ADMITTING their use, as many are closet stoners for good, legal reasons. Also, just for another 2-cents, NOT ALL STONERS ARE LAZY!!! I know many people who are doing wonderful things with their lives, no matter how much they smoke, not to mention that some people are actually MORE productive "under the influence." ;)
