    Do you think Mary jane is really a gateway drug? I have never tried drugs. Always wondered about them!! Hope you had a happy fourth, my friend. I just laid out to write haiku , organized my house and saw a dollar movie!!

    Daver, funny you should bring this up. I know it sounds odd coming from a Mormon, but I believe marijuana should be legalized. it kills a lot less people than alcohol does and yet we permit alcohol to be freely sold to adults. Now that is just not fair!!! (also, I think I might be needing its medicinal properties as I my old age brings more woe. haha)
