I have experienced Cannabis Psychosis. I saw things that were not there but I believed that they really existed.

March 2, 2018

http://gvan42.blogspot.com/2018/03/i-have-experienced-cannabis-psychosis-i.html

I experienced events that did not happen. That made it difficult to make smart decisions. Californians ought to be aware that it is possible to smoke too much dope. It took my smoking about a pound of Oregon Legal over a 7 month period for me to experience Psychosis. Yes, it’s FUN to see some things, Like a cat about the size of a German Shepard Dog. Meow! However…

I stopped smoking when I went on a driving vacation and didn’t want to be in possession of an illegal substance while camping out in my van. I remained stoned for about a month due to having so much THC in my system. It was a great trip and I saw many beautiful parks and deserts in Southern California and Nevada. We were driving over “The Grapevine” and the highway patrol created a rolling roadblock to slow down the traffic. They actually forced us all to stop completely by driving back and forth across all the lanes of the freeway… I thought the CHP Car was dancing. Quite an interesting event to observe amplified by my THC enhanced brain… The combination of my being retired from work, having money in the bank and the Legalization of Marijuana in Oregon allowed me to simply take too much. Oregon was 100 miles from home and I bought an ounce a week… The stores rate and price their weed by quantity of THC per gram. I tended to buy the strongest stuff available… I went to the hospital to have an infected blister on my foot treated and they tested my blood and urine… I still tested positive for THC after not smoking for a month.

I started smoking marijuana in 1969 at age 14. I’ve smoked off and on my whole life. However I realized that I had to quit smoking while I was studying computer science at Humboldt State University. I believe that it would have been impossible to do my homework while stoned… So I quit for 4 years… In Arcata, the geographic center of illegal marijuana farming in Northern California. Marijuana is not addictive like tobacco is but it still has risks associated with it. One risk to be aware of is being arrested for driving a car while stoned.

I did a scientific study of playing chess while stoned on various drugs. I owned a chess computer that would allow me to play at different skill levels. I concluded that I played at a higher level when I drank coffee and a lower level on Marijuana and alcohol. On LSD I refused play at all as the entire test seemed absurd.

Cannabis does have entertainment value. Rock concerts are more enjoyable while stoned. One time I went to an Allman Brothers concert during a time when there was no marijuana available and the music seemed too loud and the guitar solos were pointless and too long. Sex is more pleasurable when stoned. Food tastes better. In general, all experiences are more fun. Reading a Science Fiction Book while stoned is astonishing as every page has a mind blowing revelation or plat twist. Of course, the author intentionally designed the book to twist your mind. Mission Accomplished!

Marijuana is not addictive in the sense that it does not cause pain when a person stopped using it like tobacco does. However, given a choice, I prefer to be stoned all day every day. Smoking at dawn and taking another puff whenever I feel like the effects are wearing off. During my 7 month smoke-a-thon with Oregon Legal I lost about 100 pounds of weight. Strange effect. I believe that the weight loss happened because during the first hour after smoking, I felt queasy and did not feel like eating. Since I was smoking at least once an hour, I did not experience the munchies. After I went to the mental hospital I stopped smoking marijuana and have gained all that weight back and more. Deep Sigh…

During the time I was smoking marijuana heavily, the number of visitors to my blog went up dramatically. Google provides statistics about how popular my words of wisdom are. I was writing what I call “Absurdist Fiction” and posting a lot of travel photographs/descriptions. I also figured out how to “GAME” the Google Search Engine Algorithm… My Blog uses keywords describing my posts individually.  For Example: If I write a post about Traveling to Oregon, I write a dozen words that describe that blog post. I found a way to copy and paste ALL of those keywords into a single blog post. Therefore the content of that blog post would rate high on almost any Google Search.
That technique no longer works as Google probably fixed the search algorithm to ignore that “Hack”.
Anyway, I believed that the reason my blogs popularity had increased dramatically was that I was writing better when stoned. Just like The Beatles became Super Popular when the started recording records like Sargent Pepper… Yes, it’s true that I came up with more and better ideas while stoned.
BUT… the vast majority of my increase in visits was due to that one trick I played on Google.

After I got out of the mental hospital I quit smoking marijuana and have not had any great ideas since. SO, I have been writing my Autobiography instead. Typing what I did in the past instead of creating the future. By the way, I’m really glad that Marijuana has become legal in California because freedom of choice is great. It’s not the right drug for me but the last thing anyone needs is going to jail. We ought to legalize Marijuana Nationwide! Reduce spending on Law Enforcement while increasing VOLUNTARY taxes… AND… Release all the Cannabis Prisoners.

Unemployment Rate Increases due to Trump’s Trade War. Tariffs Cause Layoffs, Harm to American Salmon Fishermen, Soybean Farmers…

https://www.npr.org/2018/07/06/626453571/china-says-u-s-has-begun-largest-trade-war-in-history-retaliates-with-tariffs  China announced its own round of retaliatory tariffs, which target $34 billion worth of U.S. goods including soybeans, electric cars, orange juice, and salmon.

Trump’s Tax Cut for the Rich Law FAILS to help Most Americans… Promises Made, Promises Broken…

July 6, 2018

https://www.commondreams.org/newswire/2018/06/19/six-month-report-card-gives-trump-gop-tax-cuts-failing-grades

Key findings from the ATF report show that:

  • Although President Trump promised the average worker would see a $4,000 pay raise due to the tax cuts, only 4% of workers so far are getting a bonus or wage hike.
  • Only 402 of the nation’s six million employers have announced any plans to share their tax cuts with employees through bonuses or wage hikes. The total is estimated at $7 billion so far. But that pales in comparison to the $77 billion in tax cuts that just 156 corporations are getting this year.
  • Corporations are giving huge windfalls to their CEOs and wealthy shareholders in the form of stock buybacks, as they own most stock. Corporations have announced $484 billion in stock buybacks since the tax law was passed. That’s 69 times more than the $7 billion corporations have promised workers through one-time bonuses and wage hikes.
  • Despite the promise that the tax cuts would increase wages, the government reported last week that in the last year average hourly wages for four out of five workers in the private sector have gone down after inflation.

In addition, by effectively repealing the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act, the tax-cut law will cause:

  • 13 million Americans to lose health care coverage by 2025 [CBO].
  • ACA insurance premiums to spike by 10%, on average, most years for the next decade.

Coal is the Main Cause of Global Warming

The new EPA chief is just as bad as Scott Pruitt as far as POLICY goes… Let corporations Pollute at will and let them save the money spent on keeping the ENVIRONMENT Clean. Remove Regulations on Water Pollution, Air Pollution allowing PROFITS TO INCREASE at the expense of PEOPLE’S HEALTH. Increase Fracking, Offshore Oil Wells on BOTH COASTS and allow Mining on public lands… 

A Total Disaster for People and Animals… a great increase of Corporate Profits. This is Trump’s Bizarro World.

Legalize Medicinal Psychedelics: Great Book: “How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence”

July 4, 2018

https://www.amazon.com/Change-Your-Mind-Consciousness-Transcendence/dp/1594204225

How to Change Your Mind is a singular adventure into the experience of various altered states of consciousness, along with a deep dive into both the latest brain science and the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists. Pollan introduces us to Silicon Valley professionals who take micro-doses of LSD to inspire creativity and innovation, seekers hoping for a mystical or religious experience, and terminal cancer patients who have had their fear of death diminished by a single psychedelic experience. Pollan also sifts the historical record to separate the truth about these mysterious drugs from the myths that have surrounded them since the 1960s.

A deeply researched and deeply personal exploration of human consciousness, Pollan’s “mental travelogue” is not just about psychedelic drugs but also how, in a world that offers us both struggle and beauty, we can do our best to be fully present and find meaning in our lives. In conversation with Alix Spiegel, co-host of “Invisibilia” and a reporter for NPR’s Science Desk.
