Poker involves math, psychology, patience, deviousness and well timed aggression. Poker is also an an equal opportunity game. At the poker table, no one cares, who your Daddy was, or who you rub shoulders with at happy hour. Poker tests character. If you are ruled by greed, animosity, prejudices, arrogance or impatience,  you will soon get your clock cleaned at poker. I love poker for all of those reasons.

When I was a kid, ………………

LEGAL WEED — RADIO FREE NEW HARMONY

Thirty states now have legal medical marijuana. Here’s a list of the legal marijuana states.

Ron Nesler New Harmony Indiana

I know people in some of those legal marijuana states. Several of whom I served with during my eight years of US Army service, which incidentally included 15 months in a combat unit in the Vietnam war.

I have chronic pain, from conditions directly connected to my military service. The conditions I have are common among ex Army vets and some are specific to Vietnam war vets. 

These conditions are acknowledged to be connected to military service by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Some of the ex soldiers I know, who live in legal marijuana states, have the same conditions and the same chronic pain I have. Because, they live in one of the 30 legal marijuana states, they are prescribed marijuana and marijuana extracts for pain.

Everyone I know, who is prescribed marijuana for pain, reports that……..
