My wives mother is 74 going on 75.  She has a real problem eating.  She just has no appetite.  She is literally starving herself to death.  I can only think of one drug that stimulates appetites and makes you want to eat everything in sight.

The problem is, my wives mom lives in Oklahoma where the "devil's weed" is still very illegal.  At her age, she's kind of out of the "underground" that you have to be a part of to get weed.  So what's the solution?  Unfortunately right now there isn't one.

So the next time someone tells you that they believe that the prohibition of pot is still needed and there's "no medical use for it," keep in mind there is one old lady in Oklahoma who is starving to death because she can't get it.
