Life / Cannabis / Weed in Poland... How much does marijuana cost per gram and how easy is to get it? [349]

One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small.
And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all.
Call Alice...when she's ten feet tall!

Rocky, I do agree with legalization. That's just money better spent elsewhere, say on violent crimes, such as murder, and helping the poor! America looks bad to other countries, because we have people, and families living on the streets out here. Heck, near my Aunt, there's an entire tent city of those who were foreclosed out of their homes!

A country is judged by how they treat their poorest; we suck at that.

ikey - sounds like you need to repost your comment in the Polish Relationships area, under its OWN thread for help, dear!

I'll give MY personal opinion, take it or whatever, but my feelings: most of us Polish families are Roman Catholic, and get the guilt trip laid onto us heavily. After four years, you should be in already married! Seems like you are both wasting precious time, by making things feel all iffy. Just make her an honest woman. That is my take on it, but my opinion is worth only what it's printed on (but from the knowledge of what her family is pressuring her about).

I definitely look like my dad, and his side of the family, and our ancestors. I miss my daddy very, very much...and wish I had a little girl and boy to take after me, tell about our history to. But I need to be married first.

Sorry, but I digress; I don't feel it's a joke.

I do feel that it should be completely decriminalized, and treated like alcohol, as a DUI if you are wasted and drive. But otherwise, I've never had issues with wasted people.

Tolerance is needed, and yes; terrible things were done by the baby boomers, but no generation matures without mistakes. Just hope our generations can do it less costly - and stop tossing people into prison for marijuana related incidents.

Jones, you have a point; stoned people never robbed a bank.

Rocky, I find it sad that you and your friend are abusing the drug law - it is definitely NO joke, for those whom it was intended for! At least acknowledge that mmj does help people who are in chronic, unremitting pain, 24/7 year round.

I have a friend whom I took to one of those 215 doctors, with his MRIs and doctor records. He has 10 conditions that he's suffered with for almost a decade, and was contemplating suicide to stop the pain, when I mentioned the mmj to him as an option. Even his own mother would rather he be dead than try it because of the propaganda (that's so sick and twisted). So I drove him. The doctor talked with him, and told him that he only needed two of his chronic conditions for a few years, to obtain the license - but with 10, she was shocked he was still alive, and said the program was definitely made for him!

So he's at $20 a week, he's been gaining his life back, and cut his regular drugs way down. Plus it's the FIRST thing he's taken, that has affected the nerve pain! After they figure out which type suits him best, it may go up to $30 a week (for pain free), but it's so nice to see him awake, and actually moving around!! Yes - the mmj actually has him active, seriously. I doubted it too, but from what the doc said, it affects nerve damaged people differently. He said he's starting to feel like he may be able to work a job again, and is vying for hopefully, pain free days.

Just sad people abuse it, but thank g*d people that really need it are being helped, and my friend didn't kill himself from the 9+ out of 10 pain daily. I'm going to see him tomorrow for a bit.

Genealogy / The typical Polish look, or all Eastern Europeans [619]

Easternslav is correct - hypothyroidism is rampant in many families, and in my mother's side.
Part of the issue is that they treat Hypothyroidism on a BELLCURVE, since the '70s. Before that, they'd give you the dessicated thyroid until you felt better. Today's dosage is at least half of what it was, out of fear of causing heart attacks; it never caused them! This single lack of proper treatment I believe has contributed to morbid obesity, Fibromyalgia, CFS, and created a way for the drug companies to make BILLIONS of bucks per year.

How much does it cost if you treat it yourself, with dessicated thyroid each month? $20!

I have the light olive skin, btw, unless I choose to obtain a suntan. After seeing girls in their 20s turn into wrinkled old ladies within a few years, I chose to stop tanning, and pleased with that simple life change, along with using sunblock.

I also have dark brown hair, 5'6" tall, with slim build, but busty. Many of my friends from Hungary and Poland seem to be naturally top heavy, so mostly separates when purchasing clothes. Brooches are a girl's best friend, too!

In California and many other states, people have doctor's papers saying it's legal for them to consume or smoke marijuana, because it's one of the few things that helps with nerve pain. Not much else does, except expensive antiseizure drugs and some antidepressants. I've known many people who cut their $2000 medication bill down dramatically, with the help of medical marijuana - because it works when used correctly.

Fortunately, Warszawa has been in business for 30 years, and they are definitely still in business (I just hung up the phone with them, double-checking the information), with an online menu.

Miranda, that would be wonderful! We are simply all gorgeous gals...no wonder the men faun over us. ;)

Bring on the Halloween pics - perhaps we'll need a separate forum, if everyone wishes to join in.

One interesting thing I've noticed, are our eyebrow similarities, Dzhaklin. I knew that the way I did my eyebrows on that first photo was overly arched with makeup, thus bring attention away from me.

I admit, this is the first time I've really paid any attention to the ethnic looks. And I reiterate, that us Polska gals are simply adorable.

Dzhaklin, I see we have the same tastes in dyeing our hair red, we could be sisters! You are very pretty (not hitting on you, just observation).

- Julie as Countess of vampires

This is one of my favorites, showing my face - but like the description says, I'm wearing a full set of fangs! I was in a full victorian dress a few years ago, and riding along in my friend's brand new SUV on Halloween. I can nearly speak without a lisp with the custom fangs, and I had great fun rolling down the window, hitting on guys. Unfortunately, one car full of cuties thought I was the real deal, and hit reverse, yiikes! Come on; Halloween in Hollywood, get the joke? Guess my friend's subtle makeup job on me was too good, a la 'Queen of the Damned' style.

Note: the spiderweb wings were purchased to go with the above outfit, and I just realized I never had pics of the two put together. I do have a theatrical side, and have spent too much money on costumes. You wouldn't believe how much the Emerald green with matching skirt cost!

Well, there was one excellent try, and it shows how looks can be deceiving.
L1) African/American
2) Ukrainian
3) English/Eu mix
4) Jewish
5) Polska

I threw you all off big time, because I'm wearing a red wig, and outrageous costume! Unfortunately my corset was too large, so it had a flattening effect rather than a lifting effect. Remember, it's a Halloween photo, so looks were meant to be deceiving. I also took measurements, and was surprised that I did indeed have the highest hairline; also, my widow's peek is showing, making the wig much more convincing, after dying my hair to match the wig. I had taken my gloves off for the photo, and I felt we were a class act for Hollywood Halloween.

It was amusing, because the door man gave me a Reel of drink coupons for best costume, of course which I shared with my friends.

All I'm guessing is the gentleman on the right is Polish, and the girl in white Ukrainian. Gentleman on left American. I'm not good at this, but my guess is Czechoslovakia for the lady in red.

I love how it took you TWO entire days to come up with that response, isthatu.

You don't know Polish history, so stop pretending to comprehend it. You blew it big time, even though I gave you the elements, you are too funny.

Here's something perhaps more to your tastes: warsawuprising.com/paper/katyn_time.htm

Of course, this probably means nothing to you, either: katyn.org.au

AMEN, celinski! THAT is what it's about: ALL the VICTIMS.

wakeup, you kept asking me questions, so I kept answering them; ergo, of course I would try an empathize through my family, dear.

You just bait us, and then pretend like we are crazy Polska ladies, sitting on our dupas, when it was YOU who kept bugging me for answers.

And what you can't comprehend, from my examples, which is crystal clear: ALL Polish families deserve their property back, no matter what their religion. 10,000 isn't that many people, in reality, across Poland.

This entire thread is inflammatory, and meant to fan the fires of Racism and Hate. I feel like we're going backwards in time, instead of forward, yet I hear you saying that is going forward?

This is rubbish.

isthatu, for real, roflmao! So, the truth finally comes out - you hate Nobility! Do you hate the English Royalty and Nobility, too? I have been nice - really polite. Kid gloves are off.

The Polish Nobility created ahead of its time, what today we call 'Democracy'. Look it up.

You can complain all you like - you aren't going to change anything now or ever, are you.

Actually, the Poles who were in Kresy were given the lands for service, and that's why it was so easy for the Russians to cut the head off the Polish army - when you have the leaders in camps, and then kill them at Katyn, much easier.

And once again, their families and mine get our properties back. Words are meaningless - just pointless banter.

UN put aside the money back in 1945, for this moment in time - it was set aside to help settle the land issues.

My family was forced out of their residences, including one that is now a museum, 'Lancut'. Also has a carriage museum, of our forefathers. He was able to save the majority of the residence, and now anyone can visit - with those foot coverings, and no high heels allowed.

Anything else, smarty-pants?

I was using my family to SHOW as an example, that EVERYONE'S family pretty much did the same thing. Many people died, and I do feel that a wholesale extermination went on against the Polish people for decades, while Poland was plundered for her resources. I also feel Poland better safeguard her forests, and that wood farming needs to be set up properly, so we will always have beautiful, untouched forests!

So - since when does what I say, mean anything about where the money comes from? Gee, let's see...in America, that would mean the taxes gathered pay for it, ergo your point is that the Polish tax payers would, too, NO DUH!!

I already STATED what deals they have lined up, I cannot speak for the government itself.

I also think perhaps age comes into this: if you are a teenager, you don't care so much, want to go forward with your life. If you're 30+, it's personal, you saw what it did to your family members, and how miserably they DIED, always wondering where the bodies are, so we can give them a proper burial, etc.!

NEVER FORGET.
