This floated up on Popurls today. Warning! Popurls.com is geek crack! If you read Popurls, you could potentially lose days off your life without even realizing it. I cannot be held responsible for broken relationships and financial hardships resulting from introducing you to Popurls. Popurls is indeed a gateway drug, a portal mind you, to more intense, more serious sources of information. If you or someone you love is an information addict, keep away from Popurls!

From Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Cannabis, Top 10 Pot Studies Government Wished It Had Never Funded. Follow the link for more detailed information. I find it interesting how economics and politics play into issues such as marijuana. Alcohol is far more damaging than cannabis yet it remains legal. I find information like this interesting to read because I believe we waste huge amounts of money by keeping marijuana illegal for little benefit. It is legal in Denver and taxed in TN.

3. Reality Me » What’s up with Cannibas? - September 13, 2006

[…] Like every other blogger, I knew that in no time at all I would be pulling in thousands of dollars from Adsense thus you see a couple of ads on the Reality Me. Apparently I talk about pot more than I thought because Adsense, being context sensitive, has consistently shown a banner ad for Cannibas and Medical Marijuana since I posted Top 10 Pot Studies Government Regrets Funding. Of course, this post contributes to Adsense wanting to put marijuana ads on Reality Me. I find the ads distracting and non-profitable so eventually I will get around to removing them. In the meantime, if the arrest of the Wests has put a damper on your supply, I suppose you can click the banner for a new source. Comments below ad. […]
