I donít like roaches either, but that seems like a cruel way to kill emí.

When I first started out I was mostly working for someone else for the first couple of years. My vehicle at that point was a Honda Civic hatchback. When I went out on my own, I didn't have any extra money to buy a work van so the civic remained my work vehicle. It was amazing how much you could stuff into that little thing.


Keeping it organized wasn't a problem because living on the east side of Vancouver you had to empty it every night or else someone was definitely going to break in and steal your stuff.


I can't tell you how exciting and liberating it was when I got my first work van. It felt like I now had a warehouse of storage space. Then you fill it up pretty quick and it becomes a disaster again.

"What am I ever going to do with all of this space"?

*One month later: "I need more space".

Such a common occurrence, there should be a name for it, if there isn't already . Work vehicle, shop, garage, home. Doesn't matter what, it happens every time.

I had a small side business in high school, Now that the world is more friendly. I am thinking I was on to something and would like to get into the lucrative legal weed market. But I have heard they don't use plastic baggies anymore so I may be a step behind.

Who didn't have a business? Just about everyone I knew was growing plants in their back yard, including me. The seeds were crappy humbolt or sansamian from shake that made up practically a third of a lid. You should have seen the amazing pipes I made in my high school art class!

I've long since scrubbed the smell of marijuana from my life style. But you're right, it seems like a lucrative business with today's quasi legal pot status. I'm just hoping law enforcement cracks down on the imbeciles that think it's OK to go to work and drive under the influence of marijuana.

I love watching the dopes on Live PD get busted with weed or THC oil in Texas. These Morons think that since it's legal in California, it must be legal in the rest of the galaxy.

Takes piles of start up money to get in the legal business. That's were the big boys play. But the scofflaws thrive in the states where recreational use is legal, they are just still illegal and subject to arrest.

That's all I'm sayin 'bout that.

I had dark brown locks at that time, never had braided blond cornrows, but when my hair got long it had a bit of a natural curl at the ends.

Eat your heart out!

Au contraire, when we were at a house with a lot of roaches we used to heat butter knives over an open flame on the gas range till they were red hot and drop the roaches onto it, talk about a rush! Now that was cruel, at least for the roaches!!!

Hot knifed a roach many times. You could look in someones knife drawer and know exactly which knives were which. I had a dedicated knife set, don't want to screw up the good cutlery.

The marijuana market is down somewhat due to so many getting in when it started going legal. The big money now is in food and cosmetic grade hemp that is organically grown.

Maybe in Oregon where there is a glut of product but here in Colorado sales and sales tax is still strong. I paint for a premium grow operation here once in a while and they are expanding their green house operation.

Hemp is here to stay as it has a million and one uses but, as the weed market gets glutted and prices drop, they might make it illegal again and go back in the locking folks up for fun and profit business. Marijuana is STILL a Schedule 1 drug- like heroin...

I welcome and encourage the industrial use of hemp. I think California could match the tobacco state's production rates. I also think pot is a good medical treatment for many and should be continued with no interference by the government.

But as far as these knuckle heads who think they can blatantly fire up whenever and where ever they like, I say crack some heads and toss them in the can with heavy fines. I mean, we already have serious consequences for being under the influence of many substances. Including tobacco. What makes these goofy wannabe hippy Rasta A-Hole thugs, think they're exempt?

Frankly, as a recreational consumable, weed is about as scourgy as it gets. Right down there with Knight Train and Old English 800.

Illinois is going *green* next January 1st. They've already been doing the medical stuff. This is fine. As long as they're not locking folks up, it's progress. But the odd thing I read was they're going to maybe allow pot smoking indoors, like in bars and other public places. You can't smoke cigarettes or even vape in bars but, they're gonna let folks burn a fatty in Applebee's? It'll probably get shot down but I'm amazed it's even being discussed.

The Looney Tunes are so misguided, they actually believe weed is harmless. Marijuana needs to be regulated in the same way alcohol, prescription drugs, and tobacco products are. The vape thing turned into a complete disaster as far as an alternative to cigarettes. More children are becoming addicted to nicotine since the decline in cigarette use somewhere back in the 90's.

Bottom line, recreational use of marijuana constitutes worse behavior than drinking alcohol because alcohol at least has measurable limits that provide safe parameters of use. Unfortunately, weed became legal simply because weak minds enabled an out of control criminal industry to grow and threaten our communities. But instead of assimilating it into the mainstream, legalization has invited criminal elements to pose as legal distributers and basically continue the dismantling of civility and societal growth.

It would have been better to legalize cocaine, meth and heroin in my opinion. At least it would have been easier to prosecute for activities under the influence.
