Could Weed Be Good For Babies?
Crazy right!?
Read more here.

snip/
"Melanie Dreher, RN, PhD, FAAN explains her cannabis and pregnancy research study in Jamaica. Pregnant women and their children were studied for over ten plus years, both marijuana smokers and non-smokers were included in the study one of the first scientific studies of the effects that cannabis may have on pregnancy and the childs development thereafter.

Dreher's research is interesting and relevant because it challenges the prevailing notion that all drug use during pregnancy is bad for children. Ironically, some of Dreher's findings suggest that ganja use by mothers during pregnancy, and by their children after birth, might actually be good for children."

29. Im not one to dose my kids (with anything)
but damn if that's not an intriguing idea. My kids are the pickiest eaters in the history of four year olds. If it's not chicken, oatmeal, or potato product, they almost always refuse to eat it.

Anyone in the Spokane, WA, area have some weed I could buy?

5. yes
I really think knowing so many people who smoke pot kept me from having any desire to try it. and i smoke plenty of legal things, so i'm not opposed to it in theory.

6. My neighbor sits in the driveway for 30 mins every night at 3:30am and sometimes
during the day blasting I mean mind blowing blasting the worst music you've ever heard and tokes up before he hits the road. Every damned day. He has no opinions on anything other than wow those graphics are cool and we made an explosion at work today and pot should be legal and meanwhile he's putting thousands of people at risk every day he's driving and just annoying the shit out of everyone when he isn't. His girlfriend left him for a cult.

21. Do you find me annoying?
I just bought some White Russian bud today.

It's supposed to be pretty potent.

I've been a pot smoker since 1996.

Got a problem with that?

Yeah. I'm sure you do.

if they didn't insist on arguing at every opportunity that pot cures everything from cancer to colic.

15. No, this is DU. I'm sure very many here believe it's not so crazy.
I'm sure some think it should be in infant formulas since there is absolutely no negative side to weed.

Calms them down and gives me a break. It's another drug with no negative side effects. You just have to watch the dosage. :sarcasm:

30. Aspirin increases bleeding and hemorrhages.
The thin blood side effect is why people with heart problems take it.

31. A careful reader
Will note that the criteria used to assess 30 day old infants are doomed to be extremely subjective.

It's nice work if you can get it, and Dreher certainly knows how to get someone else to pay for her summer pot vacations. It's kind of sad that anyone would take this seriously, though.

33. It's also sad that so many can say cannabis is bad ....
because they've been conditioned and brainwashed to believe that, but no one can show any real impartial evidence to prove it. Why is that you think?

Edited on Sun Dec-05-10 09:44 PM by wildbilln864
what is your definition of "drug"?
Cannabis contains chemical compounds. All plants do.
but by this definition: "A drug, broadly speaking, is any substance that, when absorbed into the body of a living organism, alters normal bodily function. There is no single, precise definition, as there are different meanings in drug control law, government regulations, medicine, and colloquial usage. Dictionary. ...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drug"
yes. :popcorn:
