They don't seem so backward thinking at the U or I when go up there for some therapy. Very progressive!!
    Yes, there are many good things in and about IA. I was on an undesirable job assignment and just wasn't happy to be there. The people were very nice too. Sorry to offend you

    Marinol did nothing for my pains. I don't recall it causing any problems side effect-wise.

    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

    Never said anything about doing either before getting behind the wheel. A novice pot smoker shouldn't toke after drinking... it usually makes them sick. Sorry if that's how you got hurt but don't put words in my mouth.
