12. The funny thing is, cannibis used to be the leading migraine medication.
Common sense and justice are two things that do not exist in America.

Sorry, I really shouldn't say that. I'm just totally depressed at how much of an idiot I am. Everyone on DU is a heavy reader, with great recollection. I just have that gut produced truthiness. And no ability to argue, or remember, or fucking anything. But I ain't leaving. :)
