Recreational and Medical Marijuana Use Perspective

Life has many potential roads to travel. Which lifestyle path will you choose? It is very interesting to learn how attitudes have changed about  marijuana use since I was a kid. After speaking with local youth in two states (California and Oregon) regarding marijuana use… there is a nonchalant attitude regarding medicinal and recreational use of this natural weed. The common answers to my questions, “don’t you think marijuana will harm you in any way if you continue (more…)

Fentanyl and Other Pain Medication, Legal and Illicit Use

Just Admit It, You’re Fat

For Each Day That Passes a New Beginning is Possible Many of you will go through your day and not give a second thought to the calories you consume, and for others this is all you think about.  And as the days pass, so do the weeks, months and eventually years as pounds are gained.  At some point you’ll have to “just admit it and say, I’m fat.”  But not without first going through denial (more…)

Marijuana Addiction, Government & Industrial Greed

When you digest the information I’ve provided within “Marijuana Addiction “Lay Your Bet! Part 1,” See MAE HealthBlog, www.mirrorathlete.com.  One can only assume, the government is more concerned about retaining control and power over the people.  Let me provide you some interesting information with regard to Marinol (HMO Legal cannabis oil prescription).  A month supply costs the patient, or your HMO health provider $300-500 per month.  Also, the 13 states that allow medical marijuana scripts (more…)
