Good Day World!

This Monday marks the first installment of The Pot…Porri Report, by yours truly. As you’ll see in future reports, I do have some knowledge about marijuana.

My research on the subject began in 1964 when I inhaled pot for the first time. I did it to get high and have a good time. Mission accomplished.

Over the years, being an avid reader has helped me research every aspect of marijuana. It’s an amazing medicine that goes back over 5000 years, but I’m not going to give you a history lesson today. The topic of the day is children getting pot for medicinal reasons.

Parents who believe their sick children would be helped by medical marijuana won a partial victory in New Jersey Friday. Using a conditional veto, Gov. Chris Christie modified a bill to allow prescriptions of edible medical marijuana for children.

This bill is going to attract the anti-pot crowd like fleas on a dog. Don’t let them tell you these kids who are using pot to treat their epilepsy are getting high. Simply put, there’s THC and CBD’s in marijuana. THC gets you high. CBD’s work many wonders without getting you high.

New Jersey isn't the first state to allow medical marijuana prescriptions children. Eighteen states, plus Washington, D.C., allow use of medical marijuana. A number of them provide prescriptions to children, with parental supervision, to treat a host of ills, ranging from autism to cancer to seizures.
