Will Cannabis End the Pill Era ?

Today, I snagged another round of that tasty Blue Dream. I'm happy to have it back in the area for a little bit, I've been picking up a few others strains that didn't match up.

I'm a picky bitch when it comes to smoking cannabis. In the end, I'll smoke most mid range and above but quality of my smoke means a lot to me and effects how I feel during the days I smoke the purchase. Getting sub par smoke just makes me feel " dirty " I guess, obviously the high itself is less pure and less intense with weaker smoke. Beyond the experience of smoking being sub par, you're just not that amped up to smoke because you know the experience will be weak.

Honestly, this will effect me a lot. That might be partial " addiction " but I feel any daily smoker would feel the same way.

It's been years since getting what I call " bark mulch weed ". Stuff so horrid it makes your stomach want to turn. When I was younger and growing up in New England, I smoked some nasty shit. I didn't care or know any better at that age, the kids I hung out with didn't start caring about quality till around the age of 18/19.

I started smoking at the age of 16, so that was a solid 3 years of smoking pure trash. Again, at the time I had no clue and didn't even care. New England had some OVERPRICED smoke once they started caring about quality. 60$ - 1/8 or 120$ - 1/4 was very common when it all started to flow in the area, you had to be lifetime friends to even get 100$ - 1/4 in that era.

This made a huge ripple effect in my area, many of my "pothead" friends quit smoking and turned to hard booze. New Hampshire has tax free booze which gives NH some of the cheapest booze prices in the United States. Compared to spending 60$ a 1/8 for high grade smoke, they just started buying bottles.

I saw a huge transition at the point, a lot of my stoner friends started drinking VERY heavy on a daily bases. I've got nothing against drinking, I enjoy a good drink with friends but it destroyed many of my friends lives. The worst case situation started when mixing pills with booze.

New Hampshire has one of the fastest growing opiate issues in the United States and started pushing pills to kids in the 90's at a early age. This created a huge number of people already addicted to pills by the time they hit 21, which is a deadly combination and helped create the situation New Hampshire has today.

I feel if cannabis was legal and the pill industry was weaker, this whole area would be in a much better situation and many of my generation would be in a different place. The push of pills and booze and demonzation of Cannabis was 100% the wrong move and I feel society will admit this in the future.

I hope the wave of legalization keeps spreading while the medical industry keeps showing interest in Cannabis based cures. I don't have kids so I'm not sure about the current situation with kids/pills in America, feel free to chime in on that topic. I really hope it's slowed down since I was a kid, my friends crushed Ritalin pills and snorted them after Jr. High classes, this was all supplied by the state.

I don't know a lot of things but I know one thing, the pill era must end.

Till next time, keep smoking

Yeah I think living in a legal state and having an option of various cannabis products helped me get clean off dope. But sad part is dope will always be a problem. It’s just so sad living in America these days, unemployment, shitty politics, and a homeless problem that gets worse by the day. Dope will get worse before it gets better, and not until we tackle the above issues I stated, it will never go away

·

That's a great story ! Glad to hear you're on a better road. Dope is destroying this and a wall won't fix it, the doctors are giving it out.

·
·

Yeah I know right! Drugs are coming in on planes and tractor trailers.

This is so true, Bunk weed was the normal when i was 14 15 16 and maybe evn in to my 20s.

I am one them 90s kids that had pills pushed on my from age 7 till 13 when i started smoking weed and then my parents had no say on pills.

That made it worse cause I got in to pills in my late teens to mid 20s.

Now I don't drink or do pills only smoke my cannabis.

I think we will see a slow push back to pills as we get cbd for kids for "issues" they have.

·

im also just smoker but when i was young 15 years ago we started to smoke... at this time more people starting to smoke and do chemical drugs and pills... this is sad!! ://

·
·

Yeah, It was easier to find hard drugs in my younger days then cannabis, why cause they government and big pharma what it that way

·
·
·

I feel CBD is a much safer option in that sense for sure. The long term effects of the pill era are obvious .

·
·
·
·

yes in my homecountry they want to forbid CBD as cosmetic products... fuck them!!

i dont think so pharmaindustry is to big :(( but intelligent people will figure out what t best for themself!

·

Time will tell, like you said. At the very least more will move over if the option is open to the person.

·
·

yes time will tell i hope the future will not make the mistakes of the past ://

apparently you have a lot of experience, I'm glad you like to smoke quality, many can not afford that, you also know a lot about the subject.

·

Getting old my good friend, been around the block a few times =)

·
·

hahaha very funny, you have had a good life

I agree 100%.... I have problems with Gout, Arthritis, High Blood Pressure , Stress and Anxiety. Every time I went to see a doctor they prescribed new pills. The high blood pressure pills made me feel very sick, and dizzy and the Gout pills gave me high blood pressure. I stopped both of them after 2 days.... now I grow my own High CBD cannabis and make my own tea and weed milk ... I have no gout, arthritis or High Blood pressure.

·

Nice ! I feel that road would of lead to a better final result for my generation. Glad to hear you've found a path beyond the BS of doctors and pills. Sounds like your on the right path my friend.

That sounds familiar hahaha I remember I also had times where I would get overprized trash. But its different now. Pills are shit. I did them a few times. The next morning was never something that I was looking for. Expecially mixed with alcohol. I believe it could end the pill age completly one day. But there is only one way to find ut. To live happily till that time.

" But there is only one way to find ut. To live happily till that time."
WORD MY FRIEND!!

·

Yea, I don't get trash anymore. Just kinda fit into the overall story. Pills and alchy are a INSANE mix. I'd love to see cannabis kill the pill era, time will tell like you said my friend.

·
·

It probably will one day. I hope I get to see that day but only time will tell.

Blue Dream is such a lovely strain, so lime green and tasty!

·

Yes my friend ! I love it, thank you for reading =)

Only people, who are selling pills benefit.
A lot of people give doctors too much credit and don't realize nature is our best doctor.

Not everyone has the option to get high quality (self grown). Once you know what good quality is, you never go back.

Politics care more about profits then health,
but they can no longer ignore/block/stigmatize us.

·

I agree 100% my friend. Very few benefit and politics has a huge role. It's sad that health and death are just profit.

I agree with you bro, most of the pot heads I know don't even drink any alcohol and some are like me and you only have a few beers at a time. So I imagine it would be the same for pills, if cannabis does the same thing why would you keep taking that opiate shit!!! Take it easy mate, bong on bro. :-)

Crushing Ritalin? That's some pussy shit.
But Seriously, in my freshman year in college, 28 out of the 30 students in my morning English Class were prescribed adderall, the majority of them took 2 a day.
It's pretty insane

·

Most of them were 14 or 13 years old =P It was pretty common, scary to think lol.

No creo que la pildora cambie la sensacion de fumar

·

Yes my friend ~ =P

I'm sure it'll eliminate a LOT of the need for MANY of the pills that are currently in circulation. That's for sure! Better to have those pills off the streets.
