I found that idea quite curious and talked at length with those who made this unique lifestyle change. I wanted to know what compelled them to make their decision and each of them had a different reason,Miu Miu Handbags. Several of the people told me that cannabis had been their "exit drug" (i.e,Miu Miu Purses., they used the herb to wean themselves off sleep aids, anti-depressants and, yes, booze.) One 58-year-old Conservative woman commented that she'd tried to quit both sleep aids and her nightly two glasses of red wine cold turkey but then suffered two "excruciating" nights of sleeplessness. After eating half a cannabis cookie her daughter made for her, she slept like a rock and woke up refreshed without the usual hangover and drugged feeling. She told me from that night onward,Miu Miu Bags, she decided that cannabis was more enjoyable, worked better than her pills or nightcap to prompt sleep and,Miu Miu Online, as she put it,Miu Miu Purses, "produced a centered feeling" the following day.
Other users I spoke to came to the conclusion that "buds and booze" didn't mix well for them and they decided to choose one over the other. As one man in his late seventies informed me, "Cannabis allows you to tune in,Miu Miu Online; booze makes you tune out." He liked the introspective quality that the herb offered him and expressed regret that he hadn't made the switch sooner.
A senior couple, both professionals and well-educated, made the decision to give up alcohol and only use cannabis when the wife needed to quit drinking for medical reasons,Miu Miu Online. While using the smoked cannabis for her medical condition, she realized it was "far more appealing" than her gin and tonic. Her husband agreed and now instead of two shots in a glass,Miu Miu Online, it's two puffs

proposed law would allow anyone to grow up to possess up to 40 grams (nearly 1,Miu Miu Handbags.5 ounces) of pot for their own consumption, and grow six pot plants in their own homes, producing up to 480 grams (a little more than a pound) of marijuana at a time,Miu Miu Purses. People could join clubs of up to 15 pot smokers who together could grow up to 90 plants and stockpile 7,200 grams (254 ounces, or nearly 16 pounds) a year. The identity of pot buyers would remain protected by law,Miu Miu Totes.
Aspects of the proposal are similar to the law voters just approved in the U.S. state of Colorado,Miu Miu Purses, which also enables individuals to grow six plants at a time for personal use. In contrast, Washington state's new law does not allow individuals to grow pot. But these states and Uruguay all represent a significant shift in public opinion about marijuana, said Youngers,Miu Miu Online.
"The government is still investigating what is going to be the best way to implement this," Youngers said. "This is an experiment. No country has done this before. So they need to have a law that lays out the framework, but have the flexibility to adjust this as they implement it."
Ruling party Deputy Sebastian Sabini told the AP that opposition lawmakers were invited Thursday to present alternatives to the proposal. He expects it to be quickly forwarded by the Commission on Addiction to the full lower house of Congress, which will pass the law next month. Uruguay's Senate would then take it up early next year, and if it passes, developing the necessary infrastructure and regulations would take much of 2013. Mujica's ruling Broad Front coalition enjoys ample majorities in both houses, so passage isn't in doubt.Summing up a panel discussion Thursday focused on the biggest issues facing presidential candidates, former Colorado Gov. Dick Lamm drew laughter with a simple formulation.
"We have a Republican taxing policy and a Democratic spending policy," Lamm said.
Lamenting the nation's long-term habit of spending more money than it collects year after year — unlike states such as Colorado,Miu Miu Tote, which must balance budgets — Lamm seemed to speak for the panel of five experts, concluding:
"Folks, we have a major problem, and I don't know how we solve it given the current dialectic."
The Democratic former governor was joined by former Colorado Senate Minority Leader Josh Penry, a Republican now working as an energy consultant, and by University of Denver professors Michael Cortes, Susan Daggett and Sharon Lassar.
In the hour-long session,Miu Miu Totes, which comes weeks before the first presidential debate at DU on Oct. 3,Miu Miu Purses, Lassar set the tone for the discussion by warning that the nation's political leaders face an enormous deficit-spending and debt problem.
Lassar, who directs DU's Daniel College of Business accounting program

The editor, who asked not to be named because he had been repeatedly warned not to talk to foreign media,Miu Miu Purses, described the mood among editorial staff as indignant. He predicted that some would resign, either voluntarily out of anger or forced out by management,Miu Miu Online,Miu Miu Bags.
Academics spoke of a coming reckoning by authorities to reassert control at the Southern Weekly and any other media that might take encouragement.
"Overall, the authorities do not want this situation to spread," Peng Peng,Miu Miu Purses,Miu Miu Totes, a political science researcher at the Guangdong province Social Sciences Academy, told reporters,Miu Miu Online,Miu Miu Purses,Miu Miu Bags.
The weeklong fracas at the Southern Weekly evolved quickly from a row over censorship at one newspaper to a call for free speech and political reform across China,Miu Miu Online,Miu Miu Totes, handing an unexpected test to the party leadership headed by Xi Jinping just two months into office.
Hopes that the dispute would strike a blow against censorship initially ran high. Internet microblogs crackled with messages of support,Miu Miu Purses. Liberal-minded academics wrote open letters,Miu Miu Purses,Miu Miu Totes. And hundreds of people this week gathered outside the newspaper's offices off a busy street in the southern commercial center of Guangzhou,Miu Miu Online,Miu Miu Handbags, waving signs that called for freedom of expression,Miu Miu Purses.
