“What is rarely discussed, because Mast Cell Activation Disorder/Syndrome (MCAD) is believed to be rare when in fact it is most probably not recognized, is that for many, hot flashes and/or sweats are caused by degranulating mast cells releasing histamines as well as other chemicals into the body signaling (via the brain stem) an "allergy" to things such as histamines, tyramines, cold and hot temperature exposure such as demonstrated with the heating pads and significantly, to stress as studies by Dr. Theo Theoharides of Yale Medical demonstrate.”

“They don't say how they kept the lake from getting contaminated by their equipment or how they sealed the hole..seems as though the very act of drilling the hole would have contaminated the water. It's awesome science but what are the repercussions of their actions?”

“I'm not the one making an argument against marijuana by bringing up the damaging effects of alcohol and admitting to drinking yourself. Then you go on talking about addiction about a non-addictive substance and think pharmaceutical companies are behind legalization. That's ignorance.”

“"the cuts would cause "a ripple effect across the economy" that would worsen the longer they stay in place,"

That's the point. Republicans want the economy in freefall for twp reasons: 2016, and it's a perfect way to get rid of "government". For them it's about wealth and power not people.”

“I was 39, when I turn 59 my daughter with turn 20. All was well until she was sixteen, then all hell broke loose. In my wildest dreams I never thought I would say I was too old, but today after 3 years of stress induced fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue I will say I would have been more physically and emotionally able to withstand these brutal teenage years had I done this earlier.

My situation was a bit different, my child came from an orphanage and I truly believed love and patience and lots of well earned wisdom could conquered all. But it doesn't. I love my daughter and I would go through it again, but I would make sure those teen years happened before menopause not during or after. I was fit, healthy, ate well and was not in financial peril but the stress of a wayward teenager can take a terrible, terrible toll and this should be considered when choosing to be an "old mom".”

“Why do we "older" people oppose weed? Because we've been around long enough to see how legal, mind altering chemicals (aka booze) destroys marriages, families, careers. It all starts with harmless socializing, a harmless escape from reality then....? No thanks, I intend to be quite vocal in opposition. I enjoy a glass of wine with my dinner like many but there simply are just too many people who become addicted to these mind numbing substances and eventually it takes us all down too.

I'd sure like to see a smart journalist follow the money to see who is REALLY behind this big push to legalize pot, my guess is that it's Big Pharma just dying to get into this very lucrative business.”

Darkness690 on Feb 28, 2013 at 12:32:56

“So you oppose it because you've seen the results of alcoholism, but you drink alcohol yourself? That makes absolutely no sense, especially since cannabis is not addicting and "Big Pharma" doesn't want to legalize it since they can sell expensive medication like Marinol instead.”

wwilcox on Feb 28, 2013 at 09:44:58

“No worries. You'll die soon enough and then we can get on with a discussion with reasonable people not blinded by years of propaganda from the drug war profiteers.”

Robert SF on Feb 28, 2013 at 08:10:18

“In a nutshell, here's your problem: you cannot imagine marihuana use except as destructive addiction.

You don't have that problem with alcohol. You know booze can destroy marriages, families, and careers, but you yourself enjoy a glass of wine with your dinner. But somehow, you can't think of marihuana that way.

Your information is also woefully out of date. Marihuana is not addictive, period. It's just not. And of all the recreational drugs, it's the least harmful. There's never been a fatal case of marihuana overdose, and all the other dangers attributed to it over the years (recently, since no dangers were attributed to it before the 20th century) have been proven false. It doesn't case brain damage. It doesn't cause genetic damage. It doesn't even cause cancer among those who smoke it frequently for long periods of time. The reason the smoke makes you cough is not that it's particularly harsh but because THC is an expectorant.

It does not cause aggressiveness like alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamines, and other drugs do. It also does not impair motor coordination like alcohol does, which is why musicians can play their instruments while high (to be fair, not all drugs impair motor coordination; in fact, the Air Force used to give speed to fighter pilots for that extra edge in response time).”

“Marijuana by all accounts is much less dangerous than alcohol, which you admit to using. Why the hypocrisy?”

“Nanny State, is that you?”

Azheera on Feb 28, 2013 at 03:39:29

“Obviously, your perspective comes only from your exeriences with those who drink alcohol. I'm in my late 60s and I support re-legalization of marijuana because I have educated myself about thisherb and its beneficial health effects. Perhaps you should educate yourself on this topic before you engage in conversations about it in future.”

Dream-Weaver on Feb 28, 2013 at 01:25:36

“Anyone who uses the harder drug alcohol and wants to put me in a cage for a less harmful choice is a HYPOCRITE!

Hypocrisy; is the state of promoting or trying to enforce standards, attitudes, lifestyles, virtues, beliefs, principles, etc., that one does not actually hold.”

Fran Jaime on Feb 27, 2013 at 23:02:39

“So do you favor prohibition to liquor coming back? I'm sorry but your whole comment is judgmental and silly. People become addicted to tobacco, coffee, food, and a whole slew of things, including exercise. Should we outlaw them all? Time to grow up and have a mature attitude towards weed and legalize.
Btw, Big Pharma is the one most opposed to legalizing weed.”

After that, mom took the laundry to a place where one did everything by using coins.  Finally, dad installed a washer and drier.”
