Excellent, "Goon" is on. It gets old school hockey culture and practice nearly perfect. A love letter to the game. #hoser@shorepatrol @theharryshearer Huh? Not sure of the distinction. You talk about special cases for "survival." Anyway, time to exit for me.@shorepatrol @theharryshearer Imagine I need a heart to live. How less moral than me does someone need to be so I can ethically take theirs?@shorepatrol @theharryshearer Strayed from the original point re. trying to buy off your own immorality by contrasting it with another's.@shorepatrol @theharryshearer A case of genuine self defense doesn't consider the attacker's character.

Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutor@ferrarif50lover Yeah, you've missed the point of the signs. Think I'll leave it here. Can't imagine investing more time will be well spent.@ferrarif50lover Nah, it says, "Using criminal sanctions to force a preference of intoxicant is stupid and arbitrary -- yet we still do it."

@SeanKDLA @Glinner It's not the same if it's not out in the wilds of the internet -- like seeing a caged panda.@Glinner Was bracing for the you naked on the toilet picture.@GlobalDrugSurvy Oh sure. Definitely have to be careful and start with low dose to gain experience, but you suggested "munchies spiral."@GlobalDrugSurvy Think that covers it.@GlobalDrugSurvy 5h) This comes close to prohibitionist rhetoric of "drug fiends" unable to exercise rational faculties. This is a myth.@GlobalDrugSurvy 5g) Think the worst about the edibles is that you are assuming no control -- like the user will eat anything in sight.@GlobalDrugSurvy Not sure how big ops do it. But yeah, making BHO for edibles is just an unnecessary step. Time and expense go up.@GlobalDrugSurvy Understand that, but the article didn't have much acknowledgement of finer issues.@GlobalDrugSurvy 5f) There needs to be good labeling etc., but people generally don't mis/take edibles like food. Have other munchies.@GlobalDrugSurvy 5e) ...any other type of foodstuff. It's not really food -- it's a drug in edible form. There's a difference.@GlobalDrugSurvy 5d) The worst thing, though, is that "can't eat one piece of chocolate" bit. You absolutely treat edibles different than..@GlobalDrugSurvy 5c) So, their introduction in an article about BHO seemed odd. If it's the potency, then you need some text to explain.@GlobalDrugSurvy 5b) Edibles, AFAIK, are mostly made with cannabutter -- http://t.co/n2zLinDDbv A concentrate of plant resin, but not BHO.@GlobalDrugSurvy 5) Biggest issue for me is the seque to edibles. Not sure if you mean BHO being used in edibles or just edibles in general.@GlobalDrugSurvy 4b) Somehow those concerns for recreational users vanish if there's a medical need.@GlobalDrugSurvy 4) Medical vs. recreational point makes it seem as if med.users are somehow different from rec. ones in terms of effects.@GlobalDrugSurvy 3) Potency is often mitigated through self-titration -- the user will consume less substance in total. Scotch vs. beer.@GlobalDrugSurvy 2) The "messing with nature" argument re. drugs isn't well supported. Should I be using willow bark and not aspirin then?@GlobalDrugSurvy OK. A few problems. 1) The "cute name to be less scary" comment already sets up an expectation of negative consequences.@GlobalDrugSurvy Sure. Survey is a great idea. Just not fond of that particular article. What do you have in mind?@Glinner The whole damn machine is still out there -- even defending itself in the media -- doing interviews when it should be doing time.@Release_drugs @GlobalDrugSurvy This article is still bad. The potency and edible arguments are risible and weak. Borderline scaremongering.@KevinSabet Haha, more ink shot into the water to cloud the issue & spread fear -- selective breeding != genetically modified. #squiddysabet@barryjackson1 @andersoncooper I'm not sure if it was a conscious adoption of the term. Certainly same goal -- sanitize language of torture.@Dylanesque2604 @andersoncooper Well, you just completely missed the point. This might help: http://t.co/x1nBiYe8V8@Dylanesque2604 @andersoncooper That's like Charles Manson arguing, "Well, at least I'm not as bad as Jim Jones."@barryjackson1 @andersoncooper Actually, it was called the same by the gestapo.
