+11No one should direct anyone to dress up, do their makeup or hair in a certain way. We all have the right to make our bodies look like whatever we want and it’s quite unwise to make a story about a person in your mind based on what they look like.
Hello everyone! It's been hell of awhile since I've been on here. Everything looks the same and... smells the same for sure, so it's like I never left. How's everyone been in the 11 or so months? More
Ladies: Do you wear a headcovering for religious/faith related reasons? Women for millennia have covered their heads/hair.

+6Hello everyone, I hope that whoever is reading this is enjoying their day or night. In this post I am going to review some of the benefits of legalizing marijuana. I do not intend to change your minds about what you already believe about marijuana, but I do want to open your eyes and hope that you see that marijuana has some potential to be beneficial when applied correctly. http:onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/phar.1187/full “The Pharmacologic and Clinical Effects of Medical Cannabis” above talks about the effects of medicinal marijuana. In the abstract it talks about several pharmaceuticals, medicines that have been derived from cannabis and how they are used not to cure diseases, but to help people deal with the pain and nausea that comes from them. This application is used with people who are typically going through chemotherapy. There are other applications in people with multiple sclerosis. https:www.cancer.org/treatment/treatments-and-side-effects/treatment-types/chemotherapy/chemotherapy-side-effects.html From “Chemotherapy Side effects” above it talks about the side effects of cancer. There are three main side effects of chemotherapy. The first side effect is the damaging of blood-forming cells in bone marrow. The second is damage to hair follicles. Finally, damage to cells in the mouth, digestive tract, and reproductive system. The last symptoms mention are what cause the patient to have so much pain. The patients typically can’t eat solid foods so they eat softer items like apple sauce and oatmeal, and one of the side effects of marijuana is an increase in appetite. This is one reason for the backing of medicinal marijuana legalization in the United States. These people suffer every day from a disease that has many forms, and some of those forms are incurable. I’m not saying that there aren’t alternatives to marijuana. There are definitely other ways to go about dealing with appetite and nausea. The doctor might prescribe other drugs, but these drugs vary in their effectiveness. This is due to everyone having different bodies. This causes some people to take multiple drugs, and they might not find a drug that works for them. “These can be prescribed for you to take before, during, and/or after chemotherapy. As you can see there are many different medications that your doctor can prescribe to control these symptoms. It may take trying a couple different medications before finding the right match for you.” This is a quote from http:chemocare.com/chemotherapy/side-effects/nausea-vomiting-chemotherapy.aspx titled “Nausea, Vomiting & Chemotherapy.” The reason I put this quote into this argument is because it helps to prove that drugs have different effects on different people and everyone is different. As I mentioned earlier there is also another use for medicinal marijuana. That use is for people dealing with Multiple sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord, central nervous system. According to “Mayo Clinic” the immune system attacks a protective sheath that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body. This disease cause the nerves to deteriorate or become permanently damaged. According to “The Therapeutic Potential of Cannabinoids for Movement Disorders” it states that oral cannabis extract is effective in treating multiple sclerosis related spasticity and central pain or painful spasms. This helps because it does show that marijuana can be useful to treat pain, but in the article, if you take the time to read most of it, it does mention that marijuana has been tested on other diseases to see the potential benefits, but the results have come back with little correlation. I mention this because I do not view marijuana as a cure. I view it as a drug that has potential to relieve pain and suffering. https:www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/multiple-sclerosis/symptoms-causes/syc-20350269 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4357541/ I would like to thank everyone that has taken the time to read my opinion. I hope that you have seen some of the potential benefits of marijuana and have opened your eyes to something that has potential to help people.
+7Making fun of President Trump's hair lowers us to the level of those who we wish to unseat. That has nothing to do with the issues. Please don't stoop to the same level as those who seek to further their divisive agenda. Our motto is about unity not separatism, e pluribus unum.
