3. Are you trying to make some kind of point about Marijuana legalization?

Or is there a serious conversation going on in this country about legalizing heroin, morphine, Oxycontin and the whole spectrum of opioids for "recreational" consumption?

5. Denver May Be First In U.S. To Legalize Hallucinogenic Mushrooms


By Natali Welt - January 16, 2019

Say hello to legal hallucinogens: Denver could become the first U.S. city to legalize magic mushrooms.

Possession of psilocybin is currently prohibited by law. But this could change in the near future. A campaign for the legalization of mushrooms has gathered enough signatures for the proposal to be put to the vote in the municipal elections, which will be held in May.

---clip
According to recent studies, psilocybin may help reduce the anxiety of people with cancer and could be used as a treatment for chronic cluster headaches, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, depression, and alcoholism.

Studies have claimed that mushrooms are the safest drug in the world, so this may not be the worst idea. And with Colorado being such a significant leader in legalizing drugs – they were one of the first to legalize marijuana recreationally – this comes as no surprise.

4. The sad part is that people who really need opioids for serious pain ...

are finding it almost impossible to get doctors to give them a prescription. When they finally get the meds the prescription is only good for a few doses before you have to go back to get another prescription.

6. This is why

I don't believe much about the "opioid crises". Real pain is being ignored, sufferers are living in hell and some are killing themselves because of it. Dealers are hawking fentanyl instead of lortab, percocet or vicodin so the real target in this "crises" isn't what's killing drug users. It's easier and less dangerous for LE to to go after physicians and pain patients to make them look like they're earning their pay. The shortest route for all these "crises" is to make the law abiding citizen suffer.

10. Most bars will stop serving you if you are obviously drunk. ...

You can drink responsibly and supposedly it can be healthy for you. (Tomorrow a study will come out that will report exactly the opposite.)

Alcohol, coffee could be key to living longer, study finds
Wednesday, December 26, 2018

People who drink moderate amounts of alcohol or coffee and are overweight in their 70s live longer lives, according to researchers at UC Irvine Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders.

The researchers started a study in 2003 to look at what makes people live past 90.

They say participants in their study who drank moderate amounts of alcohol or coffee lived longer than those who abstained from either drink.

In addition, people who were overweight in their 70s lived longer than people who were normal or underweight in their 70s.

7. More die from drinking alchol but the government doesn't seem to care about that do they?

The fake opioid crisis is the result of insurance companies not wanting to pay for pain medication that can be abused. What happens when cancer drugs become expensive will big gov limit the amounts you can get? I mean they are getting between people and their doctors now.
The only people affected by these draconian rules in place now are law-abiding people in pain. Drug dealers are loving these laws and cancer patients are treated like drug addicts.

11. drug addicts...

"and cancer patients are treated like drug addicts. "


They have been for a long time now.

My second husband died from cancer in 1987. His doctor would not give him proper pain medication, so he drank and dealt with the pain that way. Didn't make sense that he couldn't get something, even if it was addictive. He was terminal anyway.
