alohaben, I get a big kick out of reading your posts...you'd easily qualify as a Canadian immigrant - dancing bears and all.

For most of my life I smoked pot, probably more than I should have but it mostly kept me off cigarettes and booze. Then I quit smoking, became a military officer and got sick? I'm not so sure there isn't a connection and I'm seriously thinking about seeking out a local Compassion Club on the island here when they kick me out, in the new year.
btw ben, Vancouver Island is often warm, moderate temperatures year round, mild weather (for the most part), maybe a few days of snow that never lasts, people don't even own parkas or snow-shovels here, oh and there are more deadheads than you can shake a bong at! Across the Georgia Strait on the mainland, there is a town that was founded by ex-pats who fled the States to avoid the draft. We do get a lot of rain though and it's not a good downpour kind of rain but a nearly constant, annoying drizzle all winter long - beats the hell out of snow anyday!
My problem is that my wife is completely anti-drug. We've discussed my intention to try MM when I'm a civilian again and our solution is to get a dog. That way I'll smoke outdoors, get more exercise and that poor dog will get walked about eight times a day...even if I have to carry him.

Man oh man, I'm moving to your town!! The weather sounds fab! Here's it's either 90 with humidity making it feel like 110, or freezing and lots of snow! There is no spring or fall any more, they only last a few weeks then goes to the extremes.

aloha, raquel

that alice b toklas recipe for has brownies is not really the right way to do it.

if you go back...right here...several many pages there is an explanation for making
a canabis butter, which which cooking pot works great...one benefit of smoking
is you have better control of dosage and time of exposure (you can do just one hit at a time)...when ya eat stuff it's got to work thru your system; you can't cancel the experiment.

The more the merrier!

I was born and raised in the Great Lakes region which has the hateful sort of climate you describe. As a young Greenpeacer, I headed out on a grand journey to travel to the Pacific Ocean, down the west coast to California, back across the South to the Atlantic and then back up the coast to my hometown. I made it to Vancouver and that was the end of my walkabout - I figured, it can't get any better than this!

Maybe when all y'all 'mericans get up here we can get together for a theraputic "tea party"...oh wait a minute, not the Boston Harbour sort of tea party.

Yeah I'm in NYS, I lived in Cazenovia for a bit for school and that lake effect snow was a bother! Man it snowed soooo much!

I've thought of going to canada, but hear you guys are getting more conservative too!? But if McCain wins I'm totally coming! My husband has his masters, knows a bit of a second language and I have a college degree and could pick up a second language fairly quickly. I think we have enough points to do it. We just need jobs.

Geez gardengirl, with those credentials you could come up here and run the joint!

As for politics (shhhhh, I hear it's against the rules) we have our moments of temporary insanity where we hire these bozos and then spend the times in-between trying to sort out the mess they made.

Of course, every person, regardless of who they vote for will agree with my comment...who says you can't please all of the people all of the time?

(shhhhh...) that's the great thing about our nation (and yours too) we don't have to agree with everyone! Everyone has their own ideas about government and can proudly say it without fear (well much fear.) There is no good candidate for me, I don't agree even 80% with anyone, but that's good too because then we all have to work at running our country, it's our country, they work for us, we pay them, and yes we may not all agree, but that's what's great!

(i figured I'm ok talking a bit of politics since Med MJ is a political issue)

Elizabeth May said yesterday that she's in favour of legalizing marijuana, taxing it and discouraging people from using it like cigarettes.

I figure the amount of money the government could bring in from taxes and savings from all the police time and court time that goes into the marijuana production and distribution system, that government should be all for it.

But we still have this antiquated 'war on drugs' notion from the Regan era in the United States hampering what should be a flourishing movement.

Just thought i'd throw that in there.
