  1. Hi Gooey, It’s Marylynne Chamney. You did a story on me in 2005. I was wondering if you could help me. I’m in the process of trying to remove images of myself off the internet. I’ve had some success so far and was hoping to have your assistance with a few more images. The years that I spent fighting for my right to use medicinal marijuana started off in the right direction and then went completely wrong, so quickly, in so many ways. What happened to my family during that time made more of a lifetime impact on them, that I can ever repair. So if you could help me with any images of me, it would be appreciated more than u know.
    Kind regards,

  2. I love your writing having discovered it on Whaxy. I just bought your book “Understanding Medical Marijuana” on Amazon this evening. I decided to buy it after reading 2 pages of the sample I got online. You have a wonderfully powerful but understated way of making your points. I am the Outreach Manager at the Bright Moments Medical Cannabis Dispensary in Hamilton, Ontario. The only one in the City at this time. I am using your Whaxy articles to guide me to the science as I approach local help groups to reach out to their members. I want to lead my efforts with the science, that’s how I get my foot into the door, you help me to do that and our thinking is very much alike! Thank you Gooey.


    • Jwilbur: Thank you for your kind comments. While I am certainly biased, I would like to believe that so many of the world’s problems could be solved if only the masses, the average voter or tax payer or employee, had more science-based, real-world knowledge. Thankfully, the internet helps expedite this mass education. Thank you for your warm feedback, J, and good luck in Hamilton. I have visited your fine city many times, always smoking and vaping some killer kind herb due to the hospitality of my Canadian friends. Wonderful memories.

  3. Hey Gooey, this is Eric with Brotato Games. I love your website and was hoping you could do a piece about my friend and I and how we create chill “smoking” games for like-minded individuals to enjoy. We’re even running a kickstarter right now to gain support for our latest endeavour. If you’d like to help, I can even send you a pdf copy of the game for your enjoyment.

    Thanks a million,
