    Been doing to oven-dried for long time, think I am ready to step up and also those dehydrator, you can get them very cheap!

    Probably cheaper then my "oven drying electric bills"

    My wife not happy with me leaving the oven on for hours at the time :)

    But you might be right about the pears thought I have some harder types also but they are not very nice until right before the basically spoil

    Like my pears soft and sweet

    Why do (mostly) Americans call getting high/stoned "medicated". Why is picking up weed "picking up a prescription". Why not recognize real and just call it cannabis and getting high?
    What with that whole "let's not call it what it is" mentality?

    I think you have to consider the person's reason for using cannabis in order to call it what it really is. For example...My wife gets really bad migraines and the duration can be 24/7 for weeks or months at a time. During these periods she "medicates" constantly. When she medicates like that she doesn't enjoy cannabis. When she's lucky enough to be migraine free she "gets high" and enjoys it.

    I would also extend the difference in categorization of "prescription" versus "picking up weed" the same way. For example...there are some strains I would choose for medicating when the wife needs medicating versus the strains I would pick just for recreational purposes.

    Since I'm strictly a recreational user......I get high.

    Others may differ with my descriptions but that's how I view it.

    My take on why

    In the earlier years of the medical cannabis scene in California things were still kinda scetchy. No recreational cannabis laws existed. Collectives were getting raided by law enforcement. There were people who really needed the Meds for pain or other valid medical reasons. Then there were the kids like me who just wanted to smoke weed legally.

    That terminology use started in the collectives and clubs for a few reasons I think. One being to really change the way a lot of people thought about cannabis. It was/is medicine. Also though to cover your ass. If there is no such thing as recreational cannabis then legally you shouldn't be getting "stoned". Stoned=drug abuse. Medicated=responsible person using only what they need to feel better.

    As a youngster, in my 20s and 30s and 40s, I smoked weed for recreational purposes only. Party time. The volume I smoked back then was significantly greater than the amount I vape for medical reasons.

    I am retired now and only occasionally do I partake with friends for recreational purposes. I have some health issues now and accidentally discovered that my favorite flower has some pretty potent medicinal effects aside from just getting high. Mostly I vape small amounts throughout my day to give me energy to do the things I need to do or to provide some welcome relief to pain and nausea or to help me get s good night's sleep, of which it does an admirable job.

    If I weren't vaping buds I'd be taking (larger amounts of) prescription drugs like morphine for example and would be worse off than I am with the weed. In this context, I am medicating. My weed IS my medicine.

    At first it started with me reading some "I am very smart" type posts for some cheap laughs.:lol: Then it digressed to a video about corporate jargon and somewhere in it, they mentioned how Companies that are in trouble will give reports with a lower readability score compared to those not in trouble. We all have seen examples of this type of obfuscation. Later found the Flesch website and have been cutting and pasting paragraphs of text from speeches and other sources and seeing what it spits out.

    How is it that we have satellites working beyond Pluto yet our efforts here on Earth are to fight each other for a better means of transportation while some just keep us stalling for a simple idoacracy that inedibly will keep getting worse.

    Are all our goals not realized under our roaring sun. Does the air exhaled before me not elevate the funny cat staring me down from afar the lot. I am amazed at the notion that some bird brained from across the pond found this bloody dirt I hold and called it a new world while eons ago first ones to be here created the zero. And now we have 1s binarically mad are we all lured and lulled by the light as a moth to the blue flame.

    I'm on a rad floater. What happened to red skull? Will the twist be Skywalker goes sith? Am I too loaded to go to bed? Will W^3 occur soon or can we make it even further than Pluto someday?

    I do not pretend to understand Quantum Mechanics, But understand the language and logic problems that could exist between the early scientists and Classical physics. But those rules and logic don't occur on the quantum level.

    On the phone with mom & she was describing the poor formatting of a letter. She said "addressy." I always thought "addressee" was pronounced like "Address E."

    "Addressy" sounds annoying. Like when she says she had a "cue-pon" for something. No. "Coupon" is pronounced "koo-pon." There's no Q in it!
