Love this magical herb — I think it is kind of a miracle, people get so much relief from pain and other conditions without the need for strong pharmaceuticals with nasty side effects.

I live on a floating home on the Willamette River — smoking on the deck is amazing, also at the movies but don’t tell anyone.
OG: Favorite weed strains?
J1, Nuken, Island Sweet Dream.
OG: How do you feel about edibles?
As long as they are dosed properly, ingredients are listed, and testing is done I think they are a delightful way to get high.

Everyone should feel beautiful, everyone should have enough money to live decently, and fashion is fun, and people should dress in the style that expresses who they are.
