Good People don't smoke marijuana?

Trump elected senator from Alabama, Jeff Sessions stated: "Good people don't smoke marijuana."... Yep. This guy is in charge now.  

Remember when weed was thought of as one step from complete perdition and heroin addiction?  The pendulum is either on one side or the other.  Yes, we demonize or idolize.

No doubt marihuana is a great alternative to alcohol. No hangovers, calories, or aggressive vibes, (if grown naturally). 

Its perfect to dance to and its really made for a "good to be alive kind" type music, not really for the "I'm going to beat you up outside!" kind of  vibe.  

However, let's be honest. Is there anything more boring than having to speak to someone that is completely stoned, or drunk for that matter?   Cannabis, like alcohol, should be respected and guarded from children and young teens, just like alcohol. I dont agree with weed that looks like candy, anymore than alcohol geared to kids.

No difference there.   It's just common sense and the right thing to do.  But that is ok. Its not meant to be for everyone. Its not meant to be smoked 24/7.

So what now? We have the danger, in a sense, of corrupting cannabis. Corporations will make you think you can only get it from them. 

Cannabis is supposed to be a gentle herb. How to tell?

Good weed make you feel light and creative. 

Weed does not have to make you feel heavy and uptight; like after drinking a bottle of hard liquor or taking your mother's pills. 
So what now? Let's make sure that your state legalizes and lets you grow it

Most important: Stronger is not necessarily better.  

 Of course, this is intended only for the states where its legal! I dont have bail money!  By the way,  if you are lucky enough to live in one of  the few states where its legal;  #Smoke weed responsibly.  Make it easier for the rest!   


Mr. Robot, and old school sci-fi that makes you think

There are two kinds of sci fi fans.  The first kind is happy with spectacular special effects. Then there are the fans that want to see reality in a new way.

Just started watching Mr. Robot.  Never saw Rami Malek before, but he is perfect for the role.  He plays a flawed programmer that protects a large corporation from hackers.  If you are a closet nerd this one is for you.
Rod Serling's Twilight Zone.  Ahead of its time in every way.
 You will learn more about human psychology here than anywhere else.
Original Star Trek.  Captain Kirk was the hunk. However, Spock was a complete revelation. I do have issues now with the sexist tone of the program. Something I did not realize when I used to watch years ago.

FireFly.  This little underrated gem had just the right quirks, (they would throw in some foreign language, Chinese, I think). It shows in a playful way what a real leader should be. Their take on the "companion," is also brilliant.  They are all available for streaming on Netflix.  Enjoy your binge watching!

Let's Kick the Can

Henry Thoreau: “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation”  
Well music can not only help soothe the way in this cruel world, but make you really feel better.   

Remember the classic Twilight Zone episode, "Kick the Can?"
In the story, one of the geezers realizes that if they would all just move for the pure fun of it, the joyful feeling of youth would return. They would literally turn into kids again!

As an old geezer myself, I have found out that dancing is a great way to feel like a kid again. Studies have found that dancing is the best physical activity.  Its even helpful with Alzheimer.  Pandora is my favorite way to enjoy it, or even Youtube. Just make sure that you play it loud!  If feeling a bit shy, just lower the curtains to keep you hidden from pesky neighbors!

 and no matter what, remember to Bloom Where You are Planted!
