Why does herbal cough syrup work so well? It may be full of morphine

Re: Alternate and Traditional Medicine

the annoying thing is this cannabinoid research has been going on for years, and keeps getting cut for no real reason

Back in the early 70s we used to have private parties at a hired a venue where we ate gourmet Asian tucker and smoked dope. The gatherings were large enough that had a bust occurred, there would have been insufficient room in the lockup for us all. Our legal advisor ended up as a supreme court judge.

The first such event was opened with a speech from one Michael Field. He had just been fired from his position as a teacher for possession and he made two promises. He would become premier of Tasmania and he would legalise dope. He kept the first promise, but alas not the second.
