    Default Medicinal Marijuana

    After surgery, does marijuana have any different effects?

    Lol be careful of the munchies. Not sure how I'd cope with that level of hunger. Maybe you don't get the munchies anymore? Doubt I'll find out. Left those habits back in the 90s

    Marijuana? I wish more people would smoke it because it would increase my work load. It doesnt matter if it is legal or "medical" the DOT and USCG still test for it and you cannot hold a USCG liscense if you pop a drug screen. The lease amount of people that can pass them would mean higher pay for those of us that can pass them. I am not saying that I am anit-pot but I am more like PRO-MONEY, if you catch my drift.

    I can speak to the effects of alcohol on me post sleeve. It takes less for me to get a buzz on liquor than it used to. So, I am guessing the same should be true with pot. Just a guess though.

    Seth,

    It will increase my workload too. Good luck getting a federal job if they test positive. Oh, and a security clearance.... by by.

    Speaking of buzzes..........I have a question for ya..... My good cholesterol is down the tubes - I know more exercise but my endocrinologist did mention red wine can get those numbers up where they belong - do you think it's too early for red wine? (trust me when I tell you I do not like red wine lol) but if its gonna do some good....... what are your thoughts?

    Every journey begins with one small step....
