    Cool, old hippy dude who was 66 years young. Always had a smile. Very kind heart.

    I guess pot doesn't cure everything after all.

    Good vibes to Randy.

      Sorry to hear of your loss. Pot didn’t kill him nor did it keep him alive longer. He’s time was up.

        Mods, move to lounge please. Sorry.

        He was a good dude, but he was one of those like Corch who believed everything he read about pot healing everything.

            I’m sorry you’ve lost that friend. Life is too short and 66 is young.

            I’ve got a brother-in-law who was a national board member for NORML. Same thing: the wondrous properties of marijuana and hemp, the evil government conspiracy to hide all that, etc. For a long time EVERY conversation wound around & back to that. He’s less strident about it now, thankfully. (I’m not pro-pot but I’m not particularly wound up about it.) He’s a great husband, father and lawyer.

              Coach never said or believed pot cures everything. But civility and empathy can go a long way in making this Earthly ride an easier journey. And as you near the end of it, you find something for pain or nausea that works the feds should leave people the fck alone when they use it. 66 is too young now. I hope Randy's family is in a good place,like Randy.

                Condolences, Donk. It's tough losing a friend. I've learned the value being grateful at times like this to have had that friend in my life.

                          Sorry for your loss, Donkey.
                          So far :bandit: is working out for me. Pickled since 1981 - if that’s what takes me down, then I get what I deserve. But like your buddy, I’ll go out with a smile on my face.

                              You have no idea if this is true. Adding smoke to your Pulmonary system is not a good thing, regardless of the substance.
