Oh good, I would hate for the athletic enhancing properties of marijuana to fuck up the purity of our professional sports.

Who the fuck cares about athletes using mj? It's not a performance enhancing drug so I can't imagine a reason anybody would give a flying fuck.

You don't consider playing without the debilitating effects of Crohn's disease enhancing his performance? /s

Next you're going to hear the diabetic players demanding their insulin. You don't see the non-diabetic players demanding these enhancing drugs.

Crohn's Disease sufferer here, diagnosed in 2002. High school is a really great time to get a chronic diarrhea disease, let me tell you.

There is no cure for Crohn's Disease, only cover-up medications, and without them you have diarrhea 3-4 times a day, weight loss, no appetite, and awful stomach pain. Eventually you get a resection (intestine portion removed) and that still doesn't cure it. My uncle, also Crohn's, had 4 feet of small intestine removed.

I've tried a lot of medications, from pills twice a day to self-administered shots in the stomach twice a month. And prednisone, lots and lots of prednisone, so much pred that my ankle bones have started dying and now I walk with a limp.

Then I started smoking marijuana regularly and poof - Crohn's vaporizes. I'm not on any medications anymore, my appetite is great, my weight has stabilized at 150 lb, and I feel good. It's not cured, I still roll the dice any time I eat spicy food, but it's better and no more pills or shots.

CBD is proven to be an effective anti-inflammatory for autoimmune diseases (which Crohn's is) and I'm here with first hand proof that it works for Crohn's. I sympathize with the guy, if there's finally an effective "medication" that treats Crohn's or other AI diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or Lupus, and it allows him to play ball without running to the bathroom every quarter, let him have it. This ignorance of the efficacy of marijuana to treat chronic problems is inexcusable.

Of course it's excusable, people are weapons grade ignorant and opinionated at the same time. Then we have incredible amounts of propaganda concerning it because of all those things you listed, that's a fortune for the medical industry to treat. Why would they let something you can grow in your garden or in a pot in your window make them lose all of that money? Law enforcement loves it as it's an easy arrest and the legal system loves the money it generates for the court, the prisons and those orbital systems around punishment to include counseling for it.

Lastly there's the holier than thou self righteous crowd that will sneer at it while sucking on a cigarette and drinking booze. It gives preachers something to thunder away about on the pulpit as 'the devil's weed', to scare more people out of money.

The wicked prosper and the righteous suffer, it's been happening all along on this planet.

We all roll the dice on spicy food. Any strains that stand out?

Couldn't really say, I get whatever indica-dominant hybrid is on special at the dispensary, it's also great for chronic anxiety. Strains with higher CBD content are best though for anti-inflammatory purposes, and some strains have way more CBD than THC so they don't even get you high - you can use a strain review site like Leafly to find a good one.

GHWB has Crohns and flew navy combat mission and you do not here him bitching.

George H.W. Bush does not have Crohn's, and if he does it's reported in some forum not on the first 5 pages of Google. Furthermore, if he does, he would have developed it after flying with the Navy, because Crohn's is an automatic disqualifier for the US armed forces. But he doesn't have Crohn's so it's OK.

Perhaps you're thinking of his son Marvin Bush, who has ulcerative colitis, which is similar to but not Crohn's. He has had his large intestine removed, and is a spokesperson for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. He has never flown combat missions though.

Really I'm not sure where you're getting your faulty information, but I think the problem with you runs deeper than a lack of research before posting, judging by your comment history.

His fucking Union agreed to these rules, he agreed to these rules when he signed hos contract. Clearly druggies can not grasp basic concepts especially niggers that abuse drugs.

So using something that is LEGAL for medical and recreational purposes is abuse now. Makes so much sense, better start checking if they drink and if they fold their clothes nice and make sure their pops arent too sugary. F that noise.

Last time I checked the NFL didn't have an explicit policy on being a dick, but it does have one about using illegal drugs.
