    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    George Washington's drinking habits were legendary. The amount of alcohol on his expense account during the war is staggering.

    When the war was over Washington submitted a bill for his "expenses", $449,261 in in 1780 dollars. Or roughly $4,250,000.00 in todays dollars.

    He routinely bought Madeira by the hogshead. And we paid for a lot of hogsheads.

    I'm not wasting that much band width on a doper's wet dream. Industrial hemp won't get you high and recreational marijuana does not make good thread or rope. Kind of like the difference between a Chihuahua and a Steppe Hound (about 200 pounds). One makes you feel good, the other gets the job done. One makes you care not whether the job gets done, the other gets the job done without a care. Pick your poison. The reason industrial hemp is not widespread in the U. S. of A. today is rather simple: suppliers of other materials that had similar uses had better political relationships, so hemp was outlawed by the Gruber method dependent on the stupidity of the population of the U. S. of A. Hey, did you actually think Obama smart enough to invent this game? Haaahaaahaaahaa!

    Anywho, here's a link to a website that has basic, no-nonsense evaluation of the affects of marijuana and hemp prohibition on our country. It's silly to spend these billions on a private army to defend politicians financial investments.

    Don't Shive a Git about the pot that may have been consumed...let's face it, no hangover from a bit of weed....but I would like to know how the Hell these guys drank like they did and still could function day in and day out...? And this coming from someone who has for 45 years consumed more than my share....but I could not function like these guys, it appears, did after day of heavy downing of ale, beer, wine{gag} and booze....amazing.

    Hoot, sitting in his room at the Fairfield{Ohio} Marriott...still trying to figure out how the Hell the Packers lost that game Not that I had a dog in that fight, but plenty of family members are no doubt wearing long faces....
