It’s not that I have anything against cannabis. It’s not that I plan on permanently quitting using cannabis.
But right now I am feeling fine. I use cannabis primarily for headache relief, as well as stress relief.
I still have a valid medical marijuana recommend. But I have been feeling fine lately. Fine enough that I don’t need cannabis any longer at this point. I do still very much like cannabis. But between the expense, and some of the side effects of cannabis (such as short term memory issues and concentration), and the fact that I am actively taking pilot lessons I have decided to take a break.
Right now my family is learning Gaelic (via RosettaStone, GREAT software), and I am going back to school. So memory retention is very necessary right now.
That is not to say that people can not do well on cannabis. Because they certainly can. I passed many of difficult tests while using cannabis. My wife was a straight A student all throughout school, and got an academic scholarship to Westminster in Utah, and during her highschool years, she was stoned every day all day.
But this is a bit different. I will be piloting a plane. I will be taking off and landing at potentially busy airports during my training. So this is a much more serious situation than taking a math test in high school.
As I said, I am still a fan of cannabis in society. I still believe that cannabis is mostly harmless. I am still a supporter and activist for legalization. But the difference is, that I am going back to a point where I was 10-12 years ago, where I am back in school and I am trying to get the biggest bang for my buck with learning (both piloting and the Gaelic language).
I wanted to mention incase my time on this blog become more and more limited, which I suspect that it will.
However, PLEASE support Hempfest, and please consider sending good vibes to Vivian McPeak who is having a difficult time right now. Vivian is a living legend and the founder of Hempfest. He just had his car stolen (mind you a very special car). Look Vivian up on facebook to see the car, and to find out how you can help.
I just bought Vivian’s book “Protestival”. AWESOME book, with a DVD and an amazingly professional publishing. Good work! (see the book features in my video above)
One more note, is that I will be neglecting www.SensiLife.com too for awhile. But please check the archives if you are interested in past shows. I will probably be updating my youtube from time to time at: http://youtube.com/xcannabiscom
I had planned on showing off some of the shirts that I ordered from Jared Allaway, but they haven’t shown up yet. Please also check out Jared Allaway on facebook to see his shirt campaign. AWESOMENESS!
Peace, Pot and Liberty!!
