I am thankful for my children and their good health. My husband having his eyes opened and his support toward me homeschooling our kids, not vaccinating them, raising them in the country, etc. My dad for raising me to be suspicious toward government and question the food and medical industries. My mother for teaching me that I could and should go against the status quo if it's the right thing to do. And God for blessing me with discernment and resolve.

Hah! Nice catch. It should have read "reports of increased menstrual bleeding" not "increased reports of menstrual bleeding".

You asked for stats and I showed you some. When the numbers did not reflect your own opinion, you claim the numbers are falsified.

You'd like to cherrypick data? By all means do a bit of research on the topic and decide for yourself.

I am all for personal choice and liberty. If someone wants to smoke marijuana or drink alcohol I couldn't care less, it's when they get behind the wheel and share the road with others that their personal choices directly affect those in their immediate vicinity.

IMO, if we're going to legalize another mind-altering substance, I think there should be stricter punishments for DUIs.

According to Colorado State Patrol data, arrests increased 90% for drivers impaired by cannabis and alcohol, and 17% for drivers impaired by cannabis and other substances between 2019 and 2020

State Patrol cited 4,805 drivers for DUI in 2020. Of those, 865 involved alcohol combined with marijuana, up from 455 in 2019.

In 2019, of the 416 fatalities in which a driver was tested for Delta-9 THC, 25% were positive — up from 20% in 2016.

I guess it's actually 90%, not 50%. I'll edit my previous comment.

I agree on the benefits, but what about the spike in DUIs since legalizing mary jane in places like Colorado? Maybe there should be stricter punishments for DUIs in general? In our midterm here in Missouri there's an amendment we can vote on to legalize MJ, but I'm going to vote "No" because there's already too many retarded drivers as is. Not interested in seeing a 90% increase in DUIs.

Narrative shift. Too many people waking up, so they're "trying" to get ahead of it.

You're right, it's us. It couldn't possibly be your abysmal attempt at a meme along with the duplicitous stickying of it that warrants all this confusion.

But there were problems to the unborn. In short, women who were pregnant near those bombs had higher rates of babies with anencephaly and mental retardation. They often did not survive into adulthood. However, babies who were conceived after the detonations did not have these malformations.

Children of the Atomic Bomb: An American Physician's Memoir of Nagasaki, Hiroshima, and the Marshall Islands is a good source if you want more info.

Hey Warrior, hope you wake up with only a minimal hangover! As you sip on your morning covfefe and read through these responses, you should quickly learn, if you didn't know already, that GA is filled with awesome, supportive people and many of whom have gone through a similar struggle with addiction and/or alcohol abuse.

Although, I have no advise for substance abuse, I do know what has helped me in the past with my struggle for happiness. For me it was making time for my favorite hobby, which is writing. Whether it's writing, fishing, hiking, making music, hitting the gym, whatever (nondestructive) thing that makes you feel most fulfilled, do it. And try to do it at least a couple times a week. I also suggest reading/listening to Jordan Peterson's 12 Rules for Life.

But the number one thing that's increased my happiness level, and I've only been doing it for a few months, is saying a silent "thank you" for my loved ones and their good health and for our circumstances every night before bed. Not to say I am well off or anything like that, but I know there are many out there who have less than me or have poor health, etc.

With all the bad that goes on in this world, it's easy to become jaded and when that happens, our hearts harden and we forget to appreciate the things that matter most. I hope you find your solace.
