  1. They say sequels are never as good, and that goes for lockdowns, especially if you’re up to number 6. (I know they’re necessary, but they’ve definitely been financially and mentally tough to live through.)

     

    Still, the sun was out today, and I’ve had my shots (5G to brainstem connection is growing in nicely), so I’m doing ok overall. 


  2. Hey all,

    After 4 lovely years in Melbourne (where I was made to feel truly welcome & loved by @etherealdrifter and @Amazonian), I’ve relocated to the mid north coast of NSW. So, once we’ve settled in (and assuming we don’t all end up in lockdown), it would be cool to catch up with any peeps that might be around this neck of the woods.

  5. Yeah @Northerner I saw that too :BANGHEAD2:.

     

    Well, I remembered to put a short recommendation in to the TGA in favour of getting CBD scheduled as a pharmacy-only medicine. I know it’s not a huge thing, but it would help with public attitudes I think, as well as being really helpful for the conditions CND can help alleviate.

  6. INQUIRY INTO THE USE OF CANNABIS IN VICTORIA

    On 30 May 2019, the Legislative Council agreed to the following motion:

    1. prevent young people and children from accessing and using cannabis in Victoria;
    2. protect public health and public safety in relation to the use of cannabis in Victoria;
    3. implement health education campaigns and programs to ensure children and young people are aware of the dangers of drug use, in particular, cannabis use;
    4. prevent criminal activity relating to the illegal cannabis trade in Victoria;
    5. assess the health, mental health, and social impacts of cannabis use on people who use cannabis, their families and carers;

    Submissions are open with the TGA for potentially downgrading the schedule for prescription cannabidiol (CBD) from a doctor at Schedule 4 to Pharmacy-only with no prescription needed (after a conversation with the pharmacist).
     

    I hope ppl will consider making a submission for this - not the main game, but progress nonetheless.

  8. Should we set up a room in Jitsi or something, just to talk shit? Not very discreet, especially if you want to maintain separation  between your secret SAB identity and your Clarke Kent normie life. But I’d probably go for it anyway. 


  9. Just thought I’d get in early to say that I might be after some sub prints for microscopy once they are available as the weather cools. Ideally, I could acquire them myself, but can’t count on that with the way things are going where I am - hence the contingency. Can pay cash (assuming I’m not broke in the future, lol) or trade seeds (will have to double-check: I’m sure I have some MG and at least one trich cross I did a few years back, plus random other cacti and acacias). 

     

    Edit: I'm sorted now, thanks (you know who you are)! Still other people on the lookout for prints though, so maybe throw a little love their way. 


  10. The Melbourne calendar has lots of opportunities for meet ups between now & June. The psychedelic society is doing stuff for Bicycle Day on April 19 and are running a mushroom day at Belgrave on May 23. EGA has Garden States at Springvale on May 9.

  11. Haven’t seen those, but the trombochino seedlings I got from there are good for a laugh if you let their fruit get big - kind of like a metre long butternut squash (but not as tasty which is why it’s better to eat them when they’re  little).

  12. FB and it’s lack of ability (or desire) to catch people is not helpful. I help mod a group there and if it’s not some naive but desperate person asking for psychedelics it’s some random claiming to sell them. Even independently of that, I don’t think FB brings out the best in people. 
     

    As for the influx, psychedelics are a big, big thing. Like the ‘next big thing’, bigger than cannabis stocks, complete with breathless articles in Forbes about making money from pharmaceutical psychedelics There was an article in the Motley Fool about making 1000% ROI, I shit you not. It’s not quite at the level of peak crypto hype, but you can see it coming. 
     

    And that’s just the corporate money side.
     

    Lots of folks have heard about shrooms being good for depression etc. That, and I reckon a lot of people are as bored as shit and just want to experience something that feels like it means something. Combine that with a life of pretend instant (or is it Insta) gratification, and people can get pretty impatient. 
     

    Like @waterboy 2.0 says, be firm, tell people how it is around here and smash that mf’ing report button if you have to.
