Medical Marijuana

“She said her condition requires the whole plant”. Of course it does! I’m 100% for making pills out of marijuana. If your illness requires the whole plant then you will have to do without.

Directv are crooks

I signed up for Directv a year ago. Today I realized on my credit card statement that they had added $42 in charges the last two months. I called about it and was told that I now had NFL Sunday ticket. I told them I never ordered it and that I wanted it removed and […]
