    That area of the body can absorb things very quickly into the blood stream. So you may be onto something and should look into patenting that delivery method.

    On Howard Stern once, one of his staff took a beer enema. Got drunk very quickly,

    Personal liberties cover even the things that many of us donít care for, not just firearms. Tobacco, firearms, vaping, alcohol, living in double wide trailers, driving cars with burnt rings.....are we a country of personal choices or are we a country of popular opinion? We all know that we, here on this forum, represent an unpopular minority. Yet we throw stones.

    The company that really got vaping off the ground, Juul, claims they did it to provide a healthier alternative to smoking, but that seems like BS and they clearly started marketing to children. Now vape units are literally blowing up and burning people's faces.

    It affects all of us in higher insurance costs and second hand smoke and vape (yes, second hand vape is a thing, and dangerous). I think people should be able to do what they want, but the FDA has a responsibility to make sure consumable products are safe. Both tobacco and vape are not, so they are not doing their job. These big companies are paying off the government and that is not a good thing either.

    Stupidity cannot be eliminated. However, it should not be encouraged, either.
    Juul did not get vaping off the ground, they came in as the camp robbers that always follow a market shift. Vaping was a grass roots process that was a pariah to the corporate world until it was seen as a market for Juul-like marketing.

    I am not talking about personal choices. You want to vape, vape away as long as I don't have to breathe it in. But corporations have to market products that are safe when used as intended and instructed. Vape companies are not doing that. Also, they market to children. Children are not competent to make life altering personal choices, anymore than they can consent to have sex with adults. Also, there is no Constitutional Amendment behind the right to vape.

    The saying you add to your posts. The true one (Spoke with an Irish Accent!) is not. May you be in Heaven before the Devil knows you're dead.

    But rather. May you be half an hour in hevin, before the divil knows your dead.

    My mother was Irish. And my Dad's Pubs attracted the Irish!
    But I never had to physically throw an Irish Man out! Despite their well-deserved reputation for fighting.

    A quick story. One day, coming home from the movies (Pictures!) I heard loud voices, one actually. From the bar. A quick peep from a side passage showed my Dad, all 5'7" and 160 lbs of him! Standing inside the public bar (You never did that, you always kept the big heavy wooden bar between you and the customers.) talking to a 6' tall and powerfully built Irish Customer.

    I quickly armed myself with a large bottle of Lemonade, and a bar towel to save my hand from the bottle cap and exited the snug side of the Pub, and came in, from the Street, and sidled up behind the loud talking customer.

    At 15 years old, and 5'11" tall, and skinny, I was not so imposing, but certainly quick, and strong enough to crush the skull of anyone who would hurt my Dad.

    Noticing the expression on my Dad's face, our loud customer took a quick peek over his shoulder. And said, "Who is that Bill" much quieter now. "My Son," said my very calm Dad. "And phat is he going to do" to which my Dad replied, truthfully. "I don't know"

    Very quitly the customer explained to me, in the low voice that you might speak to a growling dog with!

    Me and your Dad were just talking. "And I was just on my way home" he slowly turned for the Street door, me behind him, and left, slamming the door hard behind him (And breaking the glass!) for which he came in and paid for the next day! My Dad told me.

    If he had made a move towards my Dad, I know I would have crushed his skull, for sure. All's well that ends well.

    It is yours, I am not faulting it, sounds good. Just giving the saying, as I heard it. Plus what else have I got to do at 8 o'clock in the morning? Going down for my Bacon butty now, yum-yum!

    Yíall, I KNOW now why he wants the enemas and I will agree with him. My behind canít taste that nasty CBD oil!!! Gosh that stuff taste nasty. Got some CBD Oil from our local small pharma up the street and a little dab will do ya but wow it taste bad!

    Regarding the Vapes; The problem was with the THC one because THEY DIDNíT USE REAL THC! Fake THC is just that, made of plastic. That was tried by drug companies a long time ago and called it Marinol or something like that. My friends doctor that gave it to her said it sucked and took her aside and told her to get the real thing (this was about 10 years ago).

    Simply, you smoke plastic your gonna get sick. The only way real THC will work is that is has to be heated, itís worthlesss without heat except for becoming rope. Obviously drug companies canít make money unless they touch it and this is what happened and now they are pointing fingers - they need a mirror!


    To the parents that are having trouble with your kids smoking, send them to this site - it did it for me, I quit a 25 year addiction to nicotine just by educating myself to know the monster I was up against.

    ^^^ This is the meat, very young people are dying from nicotine they donít even need the vape to push it along.

    I switched from smoking to vaping, eight or nine years ago. I've searched for data showing it to be harmful, and have found none except that related to vaping of illicit products, like those made from marijuana. There is anecdotal evidence of risk from using particular types of devices, specifically those that are tuned by the user to generate very large volumes of vapor (higher voltages, currents, temperatures affecting the chemistry).

    If someone knows of data showing injury related to use of standard commercial products, please let me know. Otherwise, I see no reason to believe it any more dangerous than anything in the millions of sub-micron particles of unknown nature that all of us breathe every single day.

    But one thing I know for certain is that our government has some axe to grind here, though I don't understand exactly what it is. For example, in Minnesota, smoking has been banned from most indoor areas for many years, the argument for the ban being the data showing the dangers of second-hand smoke. A few years ago, this ban was extended to e-cigarettes, despite a lack of any such data - the rationale given by those who passed it was "no one has proven it's not dangerous." Today their dutiful lapdogs in the press report loudly on sickness caused by vaping, while barely mentioning that the sick were all using illegal marijuana products. It's a little like pointing at a guy who died after eating a poisoned cupcake, and saying "witness the dangers of cupcakes!"

    In short, I don't buy any of it. It may well be that there are dangers, but so far I can find no reason to believe so, aside from innuendo and paranoia.

    Here goes, in London, it is called a Sandwich, in Liverpool, and the north of England, a Bacon Butty. How my Wife makes it. Two well-done slices of toast, buttered, then lay your slices of bacon on one slice, press the other slice on top. I love it in slices, so I cut it in 1" strips. And of course, being English born, HP Brown Sauce, liberally spread on the bacon, before the second piece of toast is pressed down. Then cut it into strips.

    Fantastic.
