On our last Smoke-N-Know, we were joined by a guest that began his journey of addiction with FDA approved medications. And before you say, "Ah, most start that way," imagine your start of opioid use being the age of 5 years old?

That was the case for Joey K. Our 2nd guest was unable to make the LIVE, duty called. When you are responsible for plants, you cannot control when harvest comes LOL. Hopefully, Geoff will make a LIVE in the future. But Joey's story is one that just may spark thoughts of a different nature.

We see footage shot all the time about how bad cities are, but people forget, someone had to let it get that bad. It did not just happen.

It is quite amazing to me that the FDA can approve drugs like fentanyl after it being created only 63 years ago, but when it comes to CBD/THC, there simply isn't enough data on its long-term effects to fully approve it for medical use.

They say they cannot collect enough data on CBD/THC because people do not readily report adverse events. My only question is, what if there are no adverse events to report from using CBD/THC? I mean an adverse event is considered life-threathening or deminishing. Only some food for thought.

If you missed the LIVE or you simply would like to share the episode with someone struggling with addiction, you came to the right place.

I want to leave you with this to ponder.....While the world was consumed with the Johnny Depp trial and Roe v Wade, there was another releasing of the Pfizer files as had been ordered by the judge months ago. Pfizer chose to do the pull the band-aid off slow so the findings of their work are being made public a trickle at a time. This release presented the following information on the vaccine made by Pfizer for COVID:

46,000 People took the vax in a trial period

42,000 had Adverse affects

1,200 died.

The FDA has a rule that one death in 30 days closes a trial down...yet this trial didn't...Why? Instead this drug was sent to market for immediate use.

If this drug has these types of findings and facts, what other FDA approvals share the same or worse?

See you all next week, 8p Instagram and 10p Facebook!
