    1. I definitely think weed is safer than man other drugs. Especially alcohol. The problem is doing some activities under the I glue even of bud can be a problem for some. I'm having some eatables bow as i write this. So that's truly my concern. If you do a job that requires certain cognitive thinking or reaction time. That can be an issue. We tend to get upset at jobs demanding a person to not use certain substances and this is the reason why. I wouldn't want to have a company and have functional addicts working for me.

    2. Marijuana is much safer than issues coming from alcohol. The same rules for working/operating a car or machine should be the same though. The tough part for an employer is testing vs someone under the influence. Alcohol passes through quickly as opposed to cannabis. Imagine if there is an accident at a workplace and they test to see if the person was under the influence if they smoked a joint a week earlier and were not under the influence whatsoever at work, they could still show positive.

  2. I think many GenZ and millennials will be adopting the Chinese "lying flat" mentality. Cannibas will help.

    3. It's a (small) held viewpoint in China that people should relax and enjoy life. Currently in China people are known to literally work themselves to death, due to lack of sleep. This is seen as admirable.
      China especially is a dog eat dog culture. You are expected from a young age to literally claw yourself to the top.
      Where is in the West kindness and empathy is a value, the east sees wealth and status as key too somebody being a good person and respectable. This is a gross generalization but lots of elements of truth in it.

    1. Well even Seth Rogen admits that if you need to drive a truck or are a nurse or something like that then you probably can’t do it at work itself but it’s more of an issue about drug testing because weed stays in your system for so much longer than even other drugs. Cocaine is out of your system in 3 to 5 days as well as most hard drugs. The whole urine test thing is scam in regards to weed use

    2. I smoke two joints in the morning
      I smoke two joints at night
      I smoke two joints in the afternoon
      It makes me feel all right
      I smoke two joints in time of peace
      And two in time of war
      I smoke two joints before I smoke two joints
      And then I smoke two more

  6. Im a high steel rigger/stagehand in the rock and roll bizness and smoking a little bit of weed relaxes me and helps me focus when Im 80 ft in the air pulling points .Im talking 3 or 4 hits not getting ripped or anything. That comes after all the points have been pulled up and the gear is in the air. . Alcohol is another story I cant drink and do anything other then fighting so I choose to smoke over drink and being in So Cal the weed here is on another level ! And its harvest season as we speak so we should get a flood from Nor Cal real soon ! Great time to be alive !

  9. Pot used to make you high, but functional, pot just makes you sleepy, so I wouldn't recommend getting stoned while doing high, or power tool related work. Pot stays i the system approximately 14 days. 3:44, 2 j's in am, 2 j's after lunch and 2 j's in the evening is old weed or dirt weed. No way with today's strains I hear.

    1. Pinchi borracho.
      Don't drink and drive Mijo.
      A judge threw the book at a close relative of the Sandoval Family. It was his 2nd DUI (driving under influence), he was deported to T.J., he should have went to visit relatives in Michoacan, but no he was quick to ask around for a coyote (Smuggler), sure two men said no problem come to our home, will feed you, they told him $1,500 dollars, sure enough it was wired. Nevertheless it got worse, they tied him up, and demand an additional $4,000. We suspected they are going to keep the money and not smuggle him. No payment, they killed him by stabbing, 2 years ago. In other words don't drive or commit a crime in US or get deported, many don't know how great they have it US, until they get deported. Well my brother Harvey is another story.
