mary jane how youve changed

this is the best honey 😉

recently i was visiting an acquaintance who is a gardener
wanted my advice on some of his garden issues

now he has a nice system he uses for his garden
he makes his own worm compost
well the worms do all the work
by his recycling food scraps to the worms

inside he has a dark room from his old photography day
he has grow lights
he starts all his veggies from seeds

you know what else i grow
what i said

he is a retired professional with a neurological disease
he raises it for his own use

as he was showing me his harvest in his baggies
i looked around suspiciously
listening for sirens
man he better be careful
he gonna get busted if he gets turned in
to the man

i remembered
its all legal here in california
you can grow 6 plants
only one can be grown outside
the inside darkroom with grow lights

i guess its like a tomato
it tastes better if you grow it yourself
pluck it off the vine
eat it fresh
buying at the store isnt quite the same
i guess it is with
mary jane
ie reefer grass pot weed herb cannabis or mj

it must be better if you grow it yourself
its all fresh
it just is better i guess if its yours

i thought about all this a lot after seeing his garden set up

i decided to try the mary jane again for sleep
getting some from medical dispensaries that is for sleep
the dose is on the side of the box
1-5 at night 1-2 hours before bedtime
if you are a regular mj user you take 5 it says
if not if you are a novice
take 1-2
i took 1/2 at bedtime last night
since the night before i had a sleepless night

man on man
i went on a 6 hour ride
up and over and through and over and under
my dreams
it was like a super aricept dream
those vivid ones i get from aricept
just really accentuated
not violent or scary
just non stop
my brain was still going full speed when i woke up
this morning
in fact it was trying to get out the front door
when i reached out and pulled it  back

i slept for 7 hours
i sure as hell dont feel like it
i fill sedated like this morning

i got to thinking
you know what
i didnt even think about the interaction the mjs
thc and cbd probably had with my aricept (donepezil)

it reminded me of the interaction that the indian herb ashwagandha
had when i took it
it was the most godawful disturbing dream
so violent
that i have ever had
i slept a good 7-8 hours
i felt like what happened in my dream was real
it disturbed me for days
again it probably was the interaction of the ashwaghanda with mj

my guess is
that interaction with mj and aricpet(donepezil) is what will be
keeping me from using mj for sleep

dang it
just when it got ok to legally use it

i do hope
that our government will allow the research that needs to be
done on this drug
so it can be properly used in medicine
it seems to be useful in some neurological diseases
it may help slow down the progress of alzheimers disease
we know it helps with seizeures
chemo patients use it for nausea and for improving their appetite

this all seems sort of weird surreal in a way
that we can use it here but not say in texas or arkansas or mississippi

in the meantime
the law changed here
now the local governments will be getting a lot of tax
revenue from its legal sale
they got
zero revenue before
they had to pay for all those folks getting thrown in  jail
costing us taxpayers millions each year

it all seems good to me
