Sometimes a rare, brave person, feels the need to speak up Anonymously in the combox to.... protect their right to do drugs.
I'll let you all share in the craziness, which is really a great example of why smoking pot isn't a great idea for anyone:
You are out of control young lady!!!!!! There is no way in hell your kids could of gotten asmatic problems From this. As I read more of your story you took them all the way to the ER for nothing !!!!! When someone elses true emergency was put on hold because of this. If the room was so filled with smoke then why would you even let your daughter go in there?????? pretty dumb !!!! And I can obivolously see that you have never smoked pot before and you don't know anything about it(effects). So Why don't you keep ur comments to urself and not post this crap all over the internet!!! Oh also I don't blame the sherriff he know's whats about to happen in a few weeks .Prop 19 is gonna pass and if it doesnt its only going to be in a matter a years! Sorry to burst your bubble but the police and sherriffs have alot of other BIGGER PROBLEMS TO DEAL WITH!! Maybe you should think about moving to a different state!!!
OH YA VOTE YES ON PROP 19!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hmmmmmm.... Where to start?
As you can all probably guess I won't be "keeping my comments to myself anytime soon." Here I go being my usual "out of control self" (okay, it's hard not to laugh at that one!).
I've kind of been waiting for this, because drug users are an extra-special type of crazy and they often begin to act like rabid idiots when someone questions their right to fry their brains.
First off, we see that the commenter would likely be unable to pass a first grade reading comprehension test. But, lest he confuse any readers who haven't followed the entire drama as it has unfolded, I'll explain, yet again, the points that he (or she) missed.
I didn't put my daughter down to bed in a smoky room. She went to bed at 7pm. My stoner neighbor hadn't yet decided to light up and fill both of our apartments with smoke. I was downstairs working on a rosary when I heard her begin to gasp as her little lungs failed to find any clean air to breath in, a few hours later.
The ER definitely didn't seem to think it was a waste of time. They don't order chest x-rays because everything is peachy. And they know that marijuana isn't good for babies. Or anyone really (these are real doctors... not the kind that sell prescriptions for $150 a pop).
I never claimed that the pot smoke "caused" my daughter to become asthmatic. I said that the pot smoke brought on an asthma attack and that she had never exhibited asthmatic symptoms before. When I spoke with her doctor today she said that it's very likely that the reaction wasn't asthma at all, but an acute allergy to marijuana that caused her to be unable to breath. Pretty scary stuff. She said if it happens again and she continues to have problems to take her straight to the ER so they can put her on a nebulizer. So I guess your years of experience with pot haven't given you all the marijuana facts in the world, have they?
And I certainly won't blame the sheriff in our town. He's been very helpful (you see, there's a difference between a "sheriff" and a "sheriff's deputy"). We've been in contact with our county's sheriff almost every day (today was the first day we hadn't spoken with him at least once) as the action the department is going to take unfolds and we're meeting with him this weekend to discuss the incident. It's unfortunate that his deputy decided to shirk his duty, but I seriously doubt he will make the same mistake twice. His phone call is just one clue that even he has realized that he screwed up. Appropriate action, after his initial laziness, has been taken.
Unfortunately, because I did grow up in California, I've seen the effects of marijuana use firsthand. And your email is a stellar example of the sort of problems that regular use causes. Here are a few articles you may want to check out:
Prop 19 may very well pass. And if it does I think that the majority of people in California will realize, in a very short amount of time, that they've made a huge mistake, as they begin to live with the consequences of their vote.
My family arrived in California 161 years ago. But you're right on one note. California, ultimately, may not be the best place for my family any longer. Still, because there are 4 generations of us here, I'm certainly not going to give up on this beautiful place altogether.
My prayers are with you Anonymous. I truly hope that no member of your family is ever harmed the way my daughter was, or in any other way, by the drug that you so clearly love.
