    I wasn't much of a fan until I got invited to go to a concert at a relatively small venue in Nashville. They put on a lively show and seemed to be enjoying themselves tremendously. This was not long before I learned of the house near my aunt's house.

    I am a bit skeptical about the whole pill thing with cannabis. There are so many compounds that work together that I'd be fearful that they'd lose something in the translation. That did happen, IIRC, with marinol. California's zip tie program has yielded some results that are more anecdotal than scientific but bear more research as they seem to be beneficial in the groups where they've been tried.

    I am of the mind that for most, whole plant extracts are the way forward

    True, but I am definitely too old for running to the pub caked up.

    Surely simply a matter of further research that's initially been hampered by legislation?

    My point is, nearly all 'synthetic' drugs are based on natural products as a starting point then distilled, refined etc. to get them in their most potent and hence effective form. Cocaine is just coca leaves processed until you've extracted the active ingredients and binned off all the extraneous stuff. Why would weed be any different? If for arguments sake it was proven inhalation was the best delivery method for weed then hospitals won't be handing out spliffs, they'll be putting it in a ventilator!

    Yes.

    I would much rather pump my body with natural substances than man made or chemically altered substances.

    Only if it is 100% pure, and who get's 100% pure cocaine?
