LOL.... What I'm saying is my freinds are really out going, out spoken, radd, like doing things till dead tired. Sometimes over welm. But, lots of fun. They like to do all the tourist things like going out to hana, Haleakala, beach, dinner, bar hopping. All the above. Anything you can think of. But, again.😝 lots of fun. In a way yes, they are users. But I know how to handle them. Help? Not sure what your mean. But any way, like I said it's fun but, it's nice to get back into normal life after they leave. (Nothing bad).... it's just trying to be a good host when their here. That's all...
I think you somehow misunderstood me Lance, I too do not believe that Marijuana is a gateway drug, I have often spoke out in this and many other forums in defense of marijuana, and how you ever assumed different is a mystery to me, my post is obviously pro marijuana and always pro legalization. I hope this clarifies my position. Aloha.
I happened to see a part of the old Donna Reed show yesterday morning. Apparently, her TV husband, Dr Stoned...er Stone, was in the hospital for some procedure. Donna and the family were in the waiting room and some doctor with thick rimmed glasses came out to give the family information. He had that official 'you can obviously trust me and everything I may say' look about him.
I suddenly thought about how things have changed and now people have EVERY RIGHT to be suspicious of doctors and whatever information they may be dispensing. They are trained by the DRUG COMPANIES so you can probably bet your bottom dollar they will say there is no medicinal value to marijuana and will always push drug company propaganda.
I was shocked to find that the great psychologist Sigmund Fraud...er Freud was PAID BY THE DRUG COMPANIES to endorse cocaine as useful and non-addictive. Everybody trusted him as suckers now blindly trust drug company trained doctors.
American neurosurgeon and media reporter Sanjay Gupta blindly believed the OFFICIALY APPROVED FDA STORY about the USELESSNESS of marijuana in a medicinal capacity and eventually OFFICIALLY completely changed his mind about the matter. He stopped blindly believing the OFFICIAL STORY and began to think for himself and, of course, came to a different conclusion.
What tends to anger me are the fools who use marijuana irresponsibly for which legitimate patients end up paying. Troublemakers always seem to make things bad for everyone else. Oh well...
I take comfort in the fact that the baby boomers are taking over the world and people tend to get what they want in the long run; if they want it badly enough. Prohibition did NOT work for alcohol and it has NOT worked for marijuana. However, it has always made big money for the criminal organizations
TO MAUI MIKE: Unless I am mistaken, the great scientist Carl Sagan found marijuana to be very helpful and I don't think it was a "gateway" drug for him. Why? Because Carl Sagan was not a weak-minded fool.
If there was no marijuana those who get hooked on harder drugs would most probably still get hooked. Blame it on whatever you may like, they would most probably STILL GET HOOKED!!!
TO MISS ANN: Weak-minded people, who cannot moderate themselves, will always find themselves screwed up no matter what they partake of. You should not blame marijuana because stupid people are too weak-minded to use it responsibly
TO COMMENTER#37 The abuse of ANY DRUG can lead to problems, period. However, the side effects to the overuse of marijuana pales compared to the OUTRAGEOUS side effects I always see from the latest drug company ads on television. I'm always left amazed that people are more than willing to take that dangerous stuff. "Ask your doctor" they say and YOUR DOCTOR is a legal drug pusher, but ONLY the drugs the drug companies are pushing
Ok KGB secret agent lol.(joking of course, right?) I don't know whether its just me or Am i just seeing a contradicting messages. Maybe one day I will figure it out. I am sorry dear but it sounds to me like your friends are users. I am not asking for any help!! And why do you have to recuperate? What do they do to you?
All those individuals who are responsible for this mess, should be put in one room, locked up and do not let them get out until there is the solution! This is beyond ridiculous!! Politicians should stop wasting time and resources!! Do your job politicians!! Yet they want to bring the refugees from some third world countries?? What a joke!!
Bubbles, You have mentioned alot of things to think about that most people don't think about before taking that step and moving to another place. Then finds out the hard way. As for most of my freinds that moved here is those that found out the hard way. But, I think it's better for me that way. Cause they also have way out attitudes like you do. Even worse than you. So, its nice to see them when they comes to visit. And it's nice to see them go home. LOL.... when they leave then I have to recuperate. Glad they don't know who stand alone is or I'll probably hear from them. LOL.... And as for the night marchers..... I have only respect for them. I have my resons..... As for most people, it may be best to go no the old saying. ... ( it's nice to visit but , don't want to live there ). That's what I say about Vegas. Ha,ha,ha.... Though I drop you a note . Aloha......
The price for the paradise it's pretty hefty. I would also mention that a lot of it, its also mental. Then of course its easier when you are young and gets tougher as you get older. Sorry to hear didn't work out with your friends. Maybe for some that make 230K per year it is 1, 2 and 3 project. Otherwise there is wealth of info out there. Once you start talking with others about this subject I sometimes surprise myself about the info I hear. But I like said earlier, the idea of moving to Hi is far away. Not anytime soon. I am totally aware that Hawaii its not just sun and fun. It takes a lot of sacrifice, strong will, commitment, doing a lot of research, asking, finding etc.,and maybe the biggest and the toughest thing to do is asking one self a question: Am I willing to swallow my pride. Am I willing to get up as early as 3-4 am to get to work, Am I willing to get my hands dirty and rough? Two totally different cultures, climates and on and on... I was on Maui twice. Vacationing. And every time, every morning I would wake up at 4 am. No exception! Nothing to do I would just leave my room and check things around. It's pretty amazing how between 4-6 am things are quite busy around the resorts. You got to appreciate and God bless those people who get up early to do their work to make surroundings look clean and pretty. ....so there I am, hehe, 4am, walking around the resort, weirdo weird lol, once I was greeting this guy, short chat blah blah, he says, oh good morning, Aloha! you are up! so I said to him yeah, im just heading close by the beach maybe I will see the Night Marchers...that was the end of the conversation lol. Look, besides I would never joke or make fun about the Night Marchers. It is life/death situation. Right? But I am sure you know some thrilling stories.
I thought the Lahaina Bypass was intended to BYPASS LAHAINA. What good will 2.7 miles of highway SOUTH of Lahaina do? The bypass should be extended 2.7 miles NORTH so residential traffic can skip all the lights and business traffic downtown. Would be nice to be able to skip 10 stoplights to get to Honokowai from Puamana....
Affordable housing,,,, How about, County buy or enter partnership for a few thousand acres of A&B land, Subdivide into 1 acre lots Sell at cost to long time residents with stipulations on resale Low down County carry paper rather than a bank, same thing as a bond sale except the county gets the interest. Provide water, Thumb our collective noses at the EPA and let folks do cesspools to reduce costs, Waive or reduce fees, Allow homeowners to do own trades work, still needs inspections, Allow house and cottage, but house can not be over 2200sf with no minimum size, Allow homeowner to live onsite while building Allow alternative dwellings with allowances for innovation Require that all residents grow or attempt to grow a home garden Disallow vacation or short term rentals Disallow speculation
Hey bubbles, I was just pulling your legs. I'm glad that you love the islands. But if you're thinking about moving to hawaii... Think about it really carefully.... then rethink about it again.. then again..... Resons is the cost of living is high here. Yes, it's beautiful here but it comes with a price. I'm just trying to make sure you know what you're getting into. Most of my friends that tryed to live here failed They just couldn't adjust to the cost just to live here. Anyway, again like many others that came to visit us here in Hawaiʻi. Glad you appreciated what we have. And hope we can keep it the way everyone knows and loves Hawai'i for. With alittle fighting to preserve it. Aloha Bubbles.......
I am just a sick freak about Hawaii islands. Every time im there it is such a rejuvenating experience. I admire its beauty. The views are stunning. i love the feel of the sand between my toes...I am a very outdoorsy person. Some tourists complain about not enough TV shows in their rooms. To me the beach, the ocean and the breath taking views-is the TV. And of course my blue Hawaiian, and Mai Tai...miss them all:)
The Hawaiian men I came across were very polite. That's all.
Oh, I get it! While you were here on maui vacationing you met someone special..... Those things happens all the time.LOL..... Aw, poor-thing...... hey, don't feel to bad you might cross paths again. Have a good day...... Aloha...... Ps. Some things is ment to be and some are just a life experience for your memory book in your head for you to compare with in the future of your life. Aloha....
