Cannabis Consumption sites in British Columbia

Are you against or for them? Do you live in British Columbia? Perhaps you voted in the survey I’m referring to, done in 2023. Thank you for providing the answers to it. This is a British Columbia official survey of how we feel about cannabis consumption sites. Overall, the older we are, the more we are against it., short story. What are your thoughts on why? Read all, I will discuss why I think that is towards the end. I received it in PDF format so I’ll highlight it below. Be warned, it is not a quick read, like the results as described in the PDF linked below for download.

From the Executive Summary: The Province of British Columbia is considering whether to permit cannabis consumption spaces and, if so, how to regulate them. ‘Cannabis consumption space’ is a general term that refers to a business such as a cannabis lounge, a special event, or other establishment that has cannabis for sale and use on-site. In spring 2022, the province sought feedback on cannabis consumption spaces through a demographically and geographically representative telephone survey, an online survey and written submissions. This engagement aimed to gain insight into whether people in B.C. think these spaces should be permitted and if they would visit these spaces. The Province also sought to understand the extent to which people agree or disagree with the proposed policy principles that might guide how these spaces could be regulated and perspectives on potential concerns or opportunities.

2023 survey results, 53% yes among existing users and 5% among people who do not use cannabis, via telephone survey visiting a cannabis space. 78% users and 0% Non users responded positively online with non users 98% against but 2% maybe
2023 survey results, 53% yes among existing users and 5% among people who do not use cannabis, via telephone survey question re: visiting a cannabis space. 78% of users and 0% of Non-users responded positively online with non-users 98% against, but 2% might visit.

The overall interest in British Columbia is high. Considering that an estimated 1.4 million people living in British Columbia reported using cannabis at least once in the past year (based on the 2021 ‘BC Cannabis Use’ survey), there may be at least 750,000 people in B.C. who are interested in visiting a cannabis consumption space at least once. In 2023, survey respondents were asked to indicate their interest in visiting these spaces to buy and use cannabis, to assess potential interest in consumption spaces. Most respondents who use cannabis were interested in visiting a cannabis consumption space, and few respondents who do not use cannabis were interested in visiting these spaces.

Open area beside Epik Cannabis Dispenserary
Perfect Open area to host an evening event, perhaps a daylight event with music cannabis consumption and freedom to do anything legal. Cannabis, more than I think, could heal this area. It sits on what was once called Canada’s most dangerous intersection…

Pre-pandemic and, before legalization, groups of like-minded individuals, at least 2, would gather upon encountering each other. In these gatherings, a match involved the consumption of 2 joints, with each person taking turns to light theirs in sequence once the first joint was ashed. Celebrations were social and varied by community. Many people attended all those gatherings in a friendly protest, which caused police and media attention in major cities like Vancouver, Toronto and other communities with local media attention if any attention happened. 420 was a code not so secret. Your next-door neighbour likely had the best stuff in the community, at least that was the sales pitch… A pair of tokers would commonly meet to discuss the quality and more from diverse grows and distribution doors. We’d compare strains, hockey scores, world events and personal stories of the highway runs we did in life. If they’d only listened to us, we coulda unleashed world peace. Why couldn’t we all just get a bong with each other and sit in a room to discuss it? The Pandemic taught us a few lessons about sharing a toke. For a short time before the governmental Marijuana Advisory Board allowed provincial weed to be sold in the province grown by people in the community and sold by citizens of the community who owned the business, a few original users and distributors kept their original Cannabis supply fresh as we all became suppliers and supporters of local weed sold at local dispensaries. They were employing local people known to us. There are still problems, but investors face those challenges now. They are trying to improve things, ever so slowly even for government time, federally speaking—so many restrictions.

Cannabis is a dangerous investment still. The goverment needs to be on top of the early struggles of this market
Civic construction played a part in forcing Earth to Sky, in late 2023, to close. 3rd Ave had summer and fall ‘infrastructure upgrades’ installed, affecting the vehicular traffic from Edmonton to Victoria Street, the previous 2 summers.

In Prince George, British Columbia, Grasshopper Cannabis was the first one to survive the initial wave of dispensaries. None before had business licenses and did not survive a week. This one opened at 421 George Street. Another dispensary, Epik, at Canada’s most dangerous intersection, 3rd and George just down the street, was the second to open. Sigh, it’s not all bad, BC is home to unemployed actors, and there are places where they can hone their acting skills. Life in the city, on its streets and jails, outside the Provincial Courthouse. It isn’t just our city, sadly. For a spell, we had a story or 2 the nation was interested in collectively, around the time just before legalization. Epik has an open area beside the store to host a cannabis consumption (outdoor) site, and an entire upper floor too if the government allows editable consumption, some non-psychosomatic. A nearby diner would likely partner with a dispensary to provide those orders. Some other businesses may have rented out that area upstairs, though. Diners on 3rd might compete with diverse offerings of Cannabis cooking too, if allowed. It does not have to be medicinal or recreational, just not decarbed. Healthy, unique meals. A new taste to old recipes, none of the refer madness effects. Activated uses are so diverse, too. Cannabis Vodka? Are you drunk or stoned when consuming it as alcohol? Crossfaded is a good word if you’re stuck, but drunk works. Of course, activated cannabis, edibles and meals would be available for takeout through the dispensaries too, to be used responsibly at home at the discretion of the buyer. The first year, there was an event on April 20th in that outdoor space by Epik, just before the fall pandemic began. The area used is a private parking area for local businesses. I attended the event, but they had prohibited taking photos. The Ramada Hotel sits across from Grasshopper, as does a popular small home-style diner called the ‘Daydream Donuts Cafe‘ next door to Grasshopper. Epik has a neighbouring diner too, ‘Ritual Coffeeworks‘. I’ve heard they have a connection to Grasshopper in Ritual. Many dispensaries close too, like Earth to Sky, found further up 3rd towards 5th in the block just after Victoria St, unable to provide the federal, provincial and local governments with income to operate as long-time road construction on Third Ave blocked all but pedestrian traffic dropping in. The picture is above, if you missed it… The residents and workers of the neighbourhood out for a healthy stroll to the neighbourhood dispensary were not quite enough to support.

Back to the survey and a closure to this post. By now, you have an independent thought in your head about open-air cannabis use in an event-type setting. I’ll focus this para and the next on one thought: new life. As many of the respondents were women of all ages, a concern in more than one female and some male minds was pregnancy use. That’s an educated guess. Gender was a question asked somewhere in that long document. My questions. Would females even congregate at cannabis consumption sites? What if they were pregnant? What if they became ‘with child’? A simple Google search brought up loads of negative information bordering on Refer Madness. It contains none of ‘the harmful chemicals tobacco has‘. It continues negative against any cannabis use, but make your mind up if you read past that warning. Youth still have that world to grow up in. Lots of youth start families. It still has the reputation of being a gateway drug for that age group. There is always the possibility of re-illegalizing it in Canada. The youth can change their futures collectively as they inherit adult roles, changing local, regional and national paths.

Digging deeper, a study of the human endocannabinoid system and its role in pregnancy shows how important it is for life from the moment of fertilization, from the mother. It continues until the child can produce enough of the endocannabinoid, all its life, to the last dying breath hopefully decades later. It starts with breast milk c/w endocannabinoids. Did you ever have a ‘Runners High‘, during activity, long after weaning from Mother’s Milk? Even deeper, we see the similarity of the Cannabinoids in cannabis to an endocannabinoid cell. The receptors in the body fit both cannabinoids and endocannabinoid cells. What happens to a lowered or compromised endocannabinoid system throughout life? Can cannabis use supplement a lowered or compromised endocannabinoid system? Well, I think Canada’s legalization is a huge 20-year at least study on Cannabis use. Questions to ask- at least one. Will it influence chronic illness diagnosis rates over a generation? OK 2. Will it affect tobacco sales and addiction? We’re already almost tobacco-free in BC– You make the difference. In BC or perhaps elsewhere, doctors can counsel persons serious about quitting. Pharmacy is a partner to health in ‘The Quit’ here. It isn’t all cannabis-related, but it was part of my quit… In BC, it is free to tobacco consumers who want an end other than death. Ask at a doctor’s office or your pharmacy. Quitnow is international and available for support with the quit, which we know is hard to do, even in British Columbia! We can have a tobacco-free generation. That includes those questionable tobacco vapes. You are part of the collective in your local area.

Keep following my posts as I research where the money goes. I hear in the USA where individual states legalize, those states pump funds into education, highways, civic roads, and other state concerns and new programs. Where does Canada put the money nationally? What if BC and all the provinces kept more of this coin?

How does a person create a Biofuel station?

I’m sitting here in Northern British Columbia watching the news about increasing fuel costs. I listen to the sound of vehicles on the main artery road in my city. Electric and hybrid vehicles are much better for residences along these roads and highways. Quieter. An ICE (or Internal Combustion Engine) stands out. As the news plays out, I imagine the lives of the people behind the wheels I hear. Emergency vehicles just passed. An ICE. Well, it could’ve been a hybrid, using ICE, but I doubt that. The government will take a little longer to upgrade emergency vehicles. Electric in a different life could have feelings of relief, not being a slave to that pump. Hybrid vehicles visit the pump less.

Using sound to heal ecosystems, using mushrooms

When plants and mushrooms grow, they vibrate. British Columbia has mushrooms consisting of many diverse species of fungi, most shared the world over and some unique to us. Even the same strains diversified. Our BC Psychedelics has a few species of ‘shrooms’ that I wrote about previously listed. A device that produces sound in various tones that translates to musical scores can capture and produce the language of plants and fungal species.. It’s called a ‘PlantWave’ device. It’s available online too, from that site linked above, so it isn’t uncommon. It is about a $500 USD investment. You could buy it. People hold plant concerts for other people with it. The sound is unique.

It makes sense that the sounds of a natural healthy life help a plant promoting fungi. Perhaps the sounds are tuned to known frequencies of healthy plants. There is some intelligence in the planet’s life. It thrives in healthy environments where others exist. The sound might even attract them to promote fresh growth in devastated areas, not too far from the boundaries of it. This science is new. Read more below.

Not all mushrooms are good for human or feral, domestic animals. Most of those are common and are adorned uniquely with identifying colors smells and smells. Some contain bacterial agents that attack bats in North America. If you see our leathery flying rodents acting strange, particularly here in Northern BC you are urged to report it to your local wildlife authority. The safety of these effective hunters of mice, mosquitoes and other pests depends on it.

New Ontario cannabis rules could have ‘Amazon effect’ on industry

This is a news feed, from Global News so my Social media shares might show broken links. Meh. I’ll try to find some non news lol info to link, information I think all dispensary employees and businesses in Canada will find interesting. In Ontario they’re changing apparently. A cannabis post! Safety.

Are you a consumer of Cannabis, and either patronize a dispensary like you used to knock on a neighbor’s door or stand behind the counter talking about the original market? You’ve seen the big security problem with the windows, I’m sure. Has it ever made you nervous?

As a patron, a few of the eyes saw an opportunity for diverse activities. Not saying all staff nationally are honest either, owners of large amounts of products for sale. Some on both sides of the counter scope the place for nefarious activities. As a legitimate business in Canada, closer to being an unrestricted pharmacy providing recreationally safe products to consenting adults than a place for alcohol products to patrons. Patrons who cannot consume or open products inside stores either. The retailers and staff and patrons feel vulnerable I’m sure. In a crowded place, everyone could be more uneasy. It happens in normal places. No one passing by can see and call 911 can invite that nefarious activity more.

I’ll edit in a bit, and take a moment to apologize for a recent post or 5 that were deleted, users removed. I hope it’s finished now. I’ll try to be way more on-top of this site. I’ll end this by saying I’ll return soon, edit this with links and delete this sentence 😆. Do you think AI could replace a blogger after death? Hmmmm. Stay tuned. More posts are coming soon, mega drafts sitting behind this post.

Access and inclusion British Columbia Prince George Uncategorized

Could AI be the future of Non-Profit boards?

Virtual meetings became popular, as meetings between groups of individuals that support regional and provincial visions, further benefiting communities of people who faced the barrier of travel to attend meetings that included local. Most notably with diverse boards managing Non-Profit aims. Within my local community, called a hub city and gateway to and from Northern BC, we host many diverse groups. We know remoteness here. Many communities establish an Advisory Committee for Accessibility like this one in my home community to identify seasonal and infrastructure barriers. I don’t know if that’s a population initiative for every diverse size of the community. For those that have that civic committee, it was recently changed beyond British Columbia to add the title of ‘Inclusion’, to identify barriers to inclusion within the community. The first virtual meeting I had was via telephone connecting representatives in the Lower Mainland area of British Columbia, 2 communities in Northern BC, and Prince George facilitating via me. We did that before 2010, leading to the future in more than my local MS community, as some meetings allowed directors to call in nationally after that trial. I had led a local group of MS-afflicted persons from 2005 to 2022.

Through that group, which is not a real non-profit group registered within the province or any political boundary, I knew of an international support community for this affliction. That international community influenced my personal MS primary education at WebMD in a much longer story of me. That wasn’t just for non-profits with diverse guiding boards, I found. The business of a province or nation has local and remote offices, diverse stakeholders, and multiple offices across vast tracts of land—nations across borders and oceans. They are all controlled by boards. I began in 2005 to facilitate a group for the local Multiple Sclerosis community. We connected it to the city, province and nation, via phone, face-to-face meetings and email so limited. We then needed to connect to move productive non-profits forward shaping communities. Fast forward, and thanks to the MS groups of Northern BC inspiring MS Canada to support from those early versions, a Zoom connection connecting remote diverse groups formed as Multiple Sclerosis-afflicted persons often volunteer their time to assist powerful groups. It was strengthening the need for remote communications, due mostly to the virus fear beyond the remoteness of British Columbia, including Northern. It was the Medical Community which included Multiple Sclerosis experienced persons in the mix of ‘British Columbians with medical experience‘ with universities partnering with BC Health who introduced ‘Telehealth’ throughout BC’s Northern Communities, now Digital Health in Canadian Health Authorities that identified the way to overcome remoteness beginning with next-door neighbours.

They all drive communication changes. Large and small businesses had the same needs for communities and regions as the non-profits. A few years before the Pandemic that brought COVID-19 and those years forcing changes to all live meetings, the software suddenly had diverse options other than Microsoft Teams, Skype, AOL, Facebook Messenger, or another App. Zoom became popular. Free, seamless international communication. Face to face, virtually. Artificial intelligence for translation got way better and was also free. It was available just before that pandemic and now all levels from Non-Profits to big businesses are struggling to bring employees back to the office full-time, now that 2023 brought full Endemic action to the country.

The Artificial Intelligence addition to Zoom paid accounts, a recent addition I’ve not tried yet, looks innocent enough. Chats I cannot type fast enough to ask a presenter a question when the subject comes up. I might master when asked a question I have to type out. Even some answers typed out don’t come fast to keep up with the speaking without it. As the presenter, it generates notes on what to say, cue card style. Meh simply amplified brainless activity. Will it take away from creativity? I guess we’ll have the chance to try it. Presently, I’m trying to create meetings hybrid in the future. I am president of one meeting group for a non-profit that has never gone ‘remote’, and another civic group, not a non-profit, that has been hybrid since the beginning of the pandemic. I might become a professional board member in some predictable future, getting paid to visualize a path for a company that isn’t a Non-Profit. You could be, too. As the person signing my cheques, or perhaps I’ll sign yours in the future.

A picture of a board meeting within a room, hybrid style with four persons in the room, one remote attendee. Hybrid can have multiple remote attendees and only one person in a board room hosting as well. They are not necessarily just to manage Non-Profts.

Selected Northern Psychedelic Species of Mushrooms.

I have heard many stories about psychedelic mushrooms growing in the Northern Forests of North America. The same forests that British Columbia was carved out of to make room for the diverse industry and housing we live in here.

Growing up in Ft St James in Northern BC, Canada, I knew persons who foraged for and harvested them. I took a trip or two and had a 3 day weekend 35 years ago that I can’t recall. It began the day I came back from camp, tea to relax, and 8 grams consumed. Next thing I’m sure of, I was waiting for the ride back to camp 3 days later. You only get that high once in a life if it happens to you. Stay focused. You will survive if you are calm.

There’s also a story from a time long ago about Reindeer and their love of a strain that grows in Russian forests. The herders noticed the animals grazing in the fields and acting funny. The mushrooms are potent. Toxic if not prepared properly when more than a small amount is consumed.The hearders learned that the Reindeer acted as ‘filters’, and they drank the urine the animals produced safely. I imagine it was safest kept cold and fresh. Brave people, in my humble opinion. Anyway, from that cold, desolate land of Northern Russia came the legend of Santa Clause and 8 flying Reindeer. Was it related to Mushroom use? At least in at least one popular theory, it was.

I can’t state it strong enough to warn you about preparing to forage for ANY SPECIES OF PLANT OR FUNGI. Always download a plant and / or mushroom identification app before heading out. If you fail to do so, you may only need to find one shroom and test it. It may be the one that feeds you the rest of your life. Only the right phycotropic shrooms are safe. Go slow on your initial trip. Be safe, get those apps.

Thank you to the Vancouver Mycological Society, who selected a number of ‘locally’ growing species of ‘funny fungi’ to share with you here. They do look like other mushrooms. Use that app I keep mentioning. Be sure of the trip you take, particularly if you do more than microdosing.

Trip 2023

It has been about 20 or more years since I traveled this highway. Even longer by bus. In 2018, the only intercity human transportation and one of the few shipping centers in Prince George shut down with little forewarning. At least it caught me unaware. Greyhound. Wasn’t too fond  of people in general, refused to comply with Transport Canada’s emerging Accessibility standards for intercity transportation of people.

Why did I not use Greyhound more? They had a route for a very long time, connecting not only Northern BC to the nation and beyond, they brought that beyond to Northern BC and beyond that way. That is a question I would ask another who spent that time apart from a family. Particularly if at a basic level, this service was available.

No excuse, I had a hard life. My Multiple Sclerosis arriving in 2000, expected to put me in a wheelchair within 5 years. Within days of diagnosis, my father died. Within two 2 years, my mental health condition was apparent and diagnosed with MS treatments, new at that time. Medical support denied me as I was using Marihuana. No vehicle. My legs decided I would lead a pedestrian life, avoiding vehicles. ‘Disabled Income. I’ll say no more.

By 5 years, I had given up my car as my right leg could not move from the gas to the brake pedal fast enough. I also quit smoking tobacco, which put me in alternative places within my community. Greyhound would not accept me as I was disabled and invalid in their minds, which is the basic reason, and I had no vehicle. My medical support accepted me back, as they could not deny me. I feel they were forced. 

I have no fond memories of Greyhound anyway, who did not mind tobacco and alcohol as long as people were on board when doors shut and wheels moving when I last rode. They left many people behind. Alcohol was still forgiven, but Canada forced tobacco out. No Cannabis allowed, but to be fair, Canada called it Marihuana, which came straight from hell. Onward to 2023. Side note: Cannabis is legal now but still can not be consumed on board.

I arrived at the stop for multiple buses running for my city. Northern BC just got away with BC Bus North, and now at 8:16 am, we wait. Soon, it’ll arrive. 8:17 now… Hurry up and wait. Well, en route now past city limits at 843 am… Ebus underway!

This would’ve shortened my trip not so long ago. Actually, it would cause adventure as I might’ve been placed between communities, awaiting the RCMP and a ride to their offices. Past is the past, Onward to Kamloops

Well, we’re all on board by 8:25, Mike does the welcome aboard speech. This Ebus is not accessible. No, it does not have a ramp. This bus has 7 stairs. I saw that it has to be requested in advance 48 hrs minimum for access. They bring a unique bus to the pickup location. Scooters always go under one bus design, and another bus can take a fair-sized power chair, untested with a scooter. Washrooms in the back. Meh. Lots better than Greyhound. Not quite as good as Northern or another Health Authority’s Connection Busses. Coincidently, A division of Ebus company manages the medical transportation I learned. There is a price difference lol.

Stops announced Williams Lk, 70 Mile House. Shouldn’t that be 112.7 Km House here in Canada? Hmmmm. Stay tuned. This ride is much smoother than Greyhound, and seatbelts are mandatory. 9:47, just entering Quesnel.

Underway, I’ll be 500 + KMs before this day is done.

Well, 1135 and the stop at Williams Lk was another memory to behold. A single bathroom satisfied my 3 hrs travel to find it, but I didn’t feel like the ‘back of the bus’ bathroom was close enough. Well, onward after Mike, the driver, does a headcount. Onward to the next stop and stretch. Time to charge and enjoy the puff. Lol, This stop by a liquor store… Iconic memories of being left here, with Greyhound… Onward.

Miles to some, kms under the wheels, moving under us. Onward!

We stopped for lunch at 112.7 km house. I’ll bring lunch on my return, just saying. A bathroom break to wash my hands, puff and consume some truck-stop-packaged something. It’s time to huff a vape puff and get on board.

The city marker was found in a city park.

My impression of Kamloops by Transit any of the modes is great. Ample wide open nature parks, accessible and ‘walknrollablable’ by City Transit. They built sidewalks for community health. All built on hills, busses struggle to climb. No wonder it’s considered the ‘City of Tournaments‘. My morning walk was a walk to the 7-11, a block by sidewalk but 20 meters above my sister’s place. Meh. A surprisingly meagre amount of benches and garbage collection areas exist on the sidewalks. But again, the city was clean along those sidewalks. I noticed very few mobility devices in use. Had I brought mine, I would’ve seen more, I imagine. I was told Tranist, HandyDART services, and private vehicles are the standard modes of Kamloops’ mobility. Walking is done mainly in those parks, so common with benches and garbage cans. People rarely walk to the park, I was told.

Peterson Creek Park affords many views 30 or 40 meters above a busy highway. Well-placed benches are along a mega km natural trail connecting some other large area parks and sporting areas.
 They donate benches as a legacy. We give thanks for the views these people enjoyed in life. There’s no litter to distract the views. Thanks as well to respectful visitors who came before me and any who picked up after those disrespectful visits.

That highway so far below
This deserted mall serves as Ebus HQ in Kamloops. The office to register is inside, and a restaurant, a couple of computer tech support offices exist. Most of the places are closed inside.

 As it is Aboriginal Day in Canada, while I traveled back, I respected these lands I traveled upon. I am traveling between the TKemlups and Lheidli T’enneh territories. Such beautiful territories they’ve managed since a time before time was recorded. As we travel, my thoughts are of ancient trade routes and past explorers to this part of Canada. I called PG Taxi along the road and booked a taxi for my arrival at around 830pm. Back home.

Now on a Canadian server

Thanks to Shift Creative, a Prince George web design service Walknroll.info is now hosted and not costing me that US exchange rate. This site isn’t making me any money, but it still remains. It will, in the future, be more than entertainment. I highly recommend the services of Shift Creative!

Well, it will get more posts. For the first time since I installed this WordPress App on my Android device, this host has connected with no issues. I can post as I travel. I’ll do this as I travel on Ebus to Kamloops in a few days. This bus might provide wireless internet and charging, I hope.

Me, 2023, before I go, lol.

Yes, you’ll get some photos. Ebus is a fairly new service connecting Prince George to Kamloops. It is the first intercity service to run that route since the departure of Greyhound in 2018. Thank you for following this site all these years! Stay tuned as I walknroll around Prince George after visiting our sister city. More to come!

WordPress user types: Patron

What is a ‘Patron’? I asked Google after finding it as a ‘user type’ on a website I manage. I have this website and another on WordPress. They do not come cheap. One is on ‘Shared’ communication servers. I reference this, but it might not display on Google Chrome browsers. Mine’s on a private host’s ‘shared’ website server. Both allow WordPress to be installed on the domain, the website you’re viewing right now or over here where the only actual difference to you, the viewer, is that this one is HTTPS. It’s privately funded, but buy me a coffee here and I’ll thank you just the same! I’d consider you a Patron for sure! Why is this important for everyone, HTTPS? Do you see a warning before you view this other very trustable website? Or is even this one just as trustworthy? They’re way more credible than mine and get way more views per day! HTTPS assures you safety amid a clutter of websites offering troubles. When they become HTTPS, I am sure those views will increase. That said, just because it displays HTTPS, know safety by experiencing past website visits. Mine should improve with frequent posting, and creditable linking verifying.

Relax. You’re on an HTTPS website!

WordPress allows different user types separating them from casual browsers who do not ‘subscribe’ to new posts publicized. That, coincidently, is another ‘Registered User’ alongside a Patron user. A subscriber gets added to Mailchimp and other lists connected to our website alongside the other registered users so diverse, and others as it shares to Social Media. The website appreciates all who register inclusively; you support the website’s authors (Contributors, another user type) with your views and shares! The Patron is a user who has had a financial long-term impact on the organization, i.e., what the organization calls a ‘valued, esteemed contact’. Imho, I would consider them financial benefactors for the entity that the organization becomes because of the coin. It helps the organization amid the funds so appreciated by government gaming sources so dearly loved. Know your limit and play within it, but thank you BC for your donations through those entertaining addictive stations. If you lose control, there is help! Please don’t validate your addiction and try claiming it on your taxes as a creditable donation. Speaking of donations, if Non-Profits were to host HTPPS Websites, the visitors would be more likely to become a patron even anonymously via an online 50-50 chance. See how Gaming helps BC Nonprofits directly? Nonprofits almost always have a running 50-50 draw and since 2019, those have been online and secure. Some by email or offsite on a secure website (HTTPS) in the organization’s name costing a percentage!

Research

Research Generally

Ok. What is it? Basically, you ask a question common in many minds and discover the answer beyond doubt through research. If you wanted to know the frequency of the local bus transit route to determine if it keeps a regular clock work schedule down to the millisecond for one example, you would have to do research with perhaps some equipment to monitor all hours it operates in all weather, at the stop outside your window if it exists or another you can monitor 27/7/365 at bus times. I would say that over a year, you would get a pretty specific result. That answer became no, it has some flexibility at arrival times per stop. It often adjusts time along the way so they don’t arrive too early at stops found ahead between the transfer stations at a specific clock work schedule for departure. All times listed are departures from stops and stations. I forgot to mention this study also involved riding many individual runs from a transfer station back to the same transfer station and timing the stops and time at. There are also speed calculations etc, breakdowns, sudden trip emergencies, they cater to public transit where anything can and usually happen tragically so often. This is a type of Citizen Study someone like me would undertake. It could be anything. It could be you ‘Studying’. You could study your life condition from any angle you question, even as far as your medical life. It’s basically the same as studying your boss’s schedule or the bus. A question you have needed an answer. If you use a scientifically proven and creditable checkable and verifiable method of answering, you become a Citizen Scientist

My latest research, in case you didn’t guess it already…

Cannabis has been a lifelong study of misinformation sounding truths, and law-abiding Reefer Madness encouraged in many of the societies’ influences. Now more recently since about 2005 with Medical because of MS and Recreational since legalization, it kind of took new angles. I was growing up around it and a Reefer Madness infected father, towards the very end of the 1970s in a small Northen British Columbia Town. I had my first puff there, behind the pool room as an early teen. According to one thought I’ve had on it, that’s where my ‘Weeducation’ began. My ‘discussions’ with my father on the subject met animosity fast, so I became a rebel without a clue for a lot of years, discretion saved lots of arguments. Tobacco was OK past 16 though, dad allowed that after ignoring it since I was 5. I ended that ‘study’ at 39.

A sea of results

Cannabis is a diverse study. It has many results, no end. The biggest thing I discovered about Cannabis and its effects on my body was that we contain a very important system in our body called an Endocannabinoid System. It’s this system recently discovered in almost all animals that control so much in bodies from the spark of life to its end and cannabis affects it positively. Yea dad, smoking the Marijuana did way more than not kill me. It ended the tobacco addiction in my body that was killing me 39 years after, actually longer. You and mom smoked tobacco when I was born 56 years ago as I type all MS’ed up now enjoying life as best I can. More than a huff and puff puts smiles on my face, I am free of Tobacco. It caused the Multiple Sclerosis and mental health challenges; That I figure resulted from the Tobacco and Alcohol studies I did with negative results that ended before my 40s.
