Glad you're back & can now be on the mend again. I have to say the Cactus looks good on the road.

I've not seen a cactus yet. I was reading a road test of a 1.2 turbo cactus in a magazine left in here and it all seems good apart from the touch screen isn't a very good idea. The test said they ride softly and seats are comfy. That would do me. It all depends if I get a motability car though. I certainly can't afford to buy one.

Well ward 205 is a gti ward. Getting dressings changed approx 6 pm and getting home after that. Get my nice big comfy bed tonight instead of this lumpy hospital thing [emoji4]

Filthy sod. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's crumbs in the bed!

I've been reading up on my condition, on medical sites which say no cure and on some forums saying maybe no cure but a substance which will help vastly more than any pills. What is this substance? Weed. Either smoke it or cook with it or various different ways to consume it. Shaun says he could get me some for a trial within 10 minutes and I could pay for it with a few prescription pills [emoji12]

It's a very good painkiller. So I'm told <cough>

In fact, if you don't want to cough, use a vaporiser... ;-)

I've a friend over in the US who lives in one of the states in which it was recently legalised for medicinal use. He has severe arthritis, and it has to quote him "given him his life back." For the first time in fifteen years he can walk more than 500 yards, can use a computer and is able to draw (albeit sparingly) again.. Oh...and work. He's now gainfully employed in the IT industry again for the first time.in roughly ten years.

All because he smokes weed!

He's also spent a large portion of his life as an insomniac - guess what else it works nicely for? Yep, helps slow your mind down so you can actually relax and get to sleep.

I would give a lot for something legal over here that could do that! Sleep problems really seem to be one of those things that the NHS are utterly, completely and totally disinterested in trying to do anything about - likewise migraines. "They just happen, nothing we can do about that." Fine...so give me something to deal with the pain or to knock me out when one happens then. "Sorry...can't do that." Can't help but think we need more doctors who understand that a migraine isn't just a really severe headache.

I'm rambling again...sorry!

On a related note, really hope that you do find a positive way forward with managing your condition. Lot of folks here keeping our fingers crossed for you.

The sooner it's legal for medical reasons the better. I have never tried it, shaun has at a party. He says you just chill out then want to eat and sleep. Compared to alcohol which makes people change often for the worse, why is alcohol legal and cannabis illegal. I am actually tempted to tell shaun to get me some and try it. Sleep for me is very erratic.

There would certainly be less fighting in town centers if the legality was switched.....can't help wondering why its called Dope however :)

IF you do go for a experiment, please do not get that home grown skunk S-h-i-t.......get some nice good quality Hashish from a "good" dealer not a street drone....they sell the RedStripe version of weed, all chemicals and forced.nasty smelly brain bomb stuff.

errr............so I was told by a friend

Your friend is a bit out of date. My friend told me it is pretty hard to get good quality hashish anywhere now. I'm led to believe there's nothing wrong with home grown "skunk" (though, I'm also told, by an indoor gardener whom I , er, used to know, er , it's simply weed grown without any outside impurities at all, so of course it's going to be "better". The gardener I, er, used to know, used to grow theirs in soil, in big pots, with nothing more than a lamp and standard plant feed, and very good it was too..so I'm told)

It's a shame Jon Snow didn't smoke some common-or-garden bush first, before he tried the skunk. As a non-partaker, I'd wager that he'd have suffered a similar effect from both.

I agree that for medicinal use it should be legalised post-haste... It's efficacy has been proved enough times for all kinds of chronic conditions.

Then there would be some controls upon its quality and provenance.

Smoking it is bad for your health though. Worse than tobacco they say. Baking it in cakes and so on is the best way (or so I'm told...)

Legalised, I'd have no problem with recreational consumption in a controlled way... It could then be properly regulated and taxed.

Agreed, Jim.

It's easy to see one of the biggest issues with it as well at the moment, and they are little to do with the use of the substance itself. They are the fact that use puts you in touch with the dealers who want to sell you everything under the sun - especially the far more addictive and damaging chemical cocktails. Hence the fact that it is almost universally known as the gateway drug. Legalise it (with the proper controls) and you at least to some extent eliminate that problem overnight. Likewise getting rid of a lot of the dodgy blends that exist...proper production process and legislative controls just as they have now for tacacco. Smoking anything should be avoided I reckon (speaking as both an asthma sufferer and someone who lost their mother to smoking induced lung cancer last year), but there are many ways around that.
