US Cannabis Coalition Garners Support from Ted Nugent

US Cannabis Coalition Adds Support from Rock Legend

US Cannabis CoalitionIn what may come as a surprise to some, notorious anti-drug rock legend Ted Nugent joined the US Cannabis Coalition, endorsing the legalization of Medical Marijuana.  

Nugent explained his USCC participation saying “Look, I’ve never been a fan of brain dead stoner types, but science has proven that medical marijuana can and does help a lot of serious illnesses like cancer and epilepsy”.

How to Quit Smoking Pot: Parents – Talk to Your Kids About Marijuana and Other Drugs

In this video I talk about my experience of growing up with nobody ever talking to my about marijuana – not my parents, not my teachers, not my coaches. Not talking about it did NOT keep me from trying it, using it daily and eventually becoming addicted to it.  (Yes I do think I was addicted to weed, although there are many other people (almost all weed smokers) who would never agree that marijuana is addictive).

I don’t have a lot of experience with this as a parent, but I have started speaking to my 10 year old daughter about pot, drinking and other drugs. I found out last week that she had been watching these videos and is proud that I have been helping others through their struggles.

Of course I cannot say for sure how this is going to end up, but I have to think that talking about things, being open and honest and getting things out in the open is a much better approach than acting like an ostrich and putting your head in the sand.

What do you think? Any other parents out there have experience with this that they would like to share.

First 100 Days Without Marijuana: How I Quit Smoking Pot

Today I celebrate my first 100 days without pot in my life. So far, really great. Not without life challenges, but life is much, much better while not having to rely on any substance to help make me relax, feel better, or just cope with the day.

Although 100 days is a milestone and I want to celebrate my victories, it really seems that its been a lot longer since I last smoked pot. That’s probably because I went about 350 days without pot last year before ‘falling down’ and letting weed back into my life for the entire ski season …

Since that time, for the first time in my life, I have declared to myself (and publicly) that I no longer want or need marijuana in my life. Life is good and there is so much that I appreciate.

I appreciate that I no longer rely on pot to make me feel better or cope with the stresses of life. Thank you.

How I Quit Smoking Pot: First Month Challenges and Appreciation

Today marks the end of the first full month since I last smoked marijuana. Lots of great things are happening, but these past 31 days have not been without their challenges.

I am especially appreciative of all the great encouragement I’ve been getting from all over the world, through comments, emails and even telephone calls. I sincerely appreciate all the positive energy, but also have to give a hat tip to all the haters: y’all keep things more interesting – and humorous.

I Fell Down; Finally Picking Myself Up After Nearly Six Months

This past December 12th, about 350 days after I started this project, I succumbed to stress and frustration and started smoking pot again.  Although there were some enjoyable times (especially many days of skiing), but my marijuana use quickly got out of hand again.

Before long I was once again smoking pot several times each day.

Ski season is over and I am ready to quit again.  I plan on once again using this blog and YouTube to help me.

Here’s my first video on this channel in a long time:

New Season, Colder Weather Proving to Be Challenges

PainCycleI’m just 4 days short of my 10 month ‘anniversary’ since I quit smoking pot and have been having challenges.

Up until last December 23rd, I had been relying on medical marijuana to help me deal with chronic pain issues related to a neck injury suffered while working as a commercial fisherman in a remote area of the Aleutian islands off of Alaska.  Unfortunately, dealing with the pain is still a serious issue.  With the days getting shorter and the weather getting colder, I have been suffering a lot more – and as a result, so have the people around me.

I’ve tried to keep it to myself, but my normally (?) sunny attitude just isn’t with it in this cold, wet climate. Read More …
