They are more than happy to prescribe stuff that costs 200 times as much and that is addictive, has plenty of side-effects, and is lethal when taken for long periods of time though.

Exactly.  It took me a long time to wise up to the fact that you cannot always trust doctors.

On that topic...  Here's an interesting website I found last year with a searchable database of doctors who received disclosed payments from pharmaceutical and medical device companies between Aug 2013 and Dec 2016.

@Filthy you can buy CBD oil without THC in it.  I have taken it here and there over the past year or so and it has worked great for my ailments as well.

They’re struggling big time these days. Millennials not buying Harley’s. They have all kinds of different bikes coming out.

That actually looks great to me!  I used to love my little 49cc Honda scooter back when I lived in Japan.  So much so that I got some snow tires for it and used it for commuting all year long.  This thing looks like it'd feel fairly similar, but with probably more stability and a whoooole lot more oomph.  So I'd better not get one.

Edit:  It actually looks like someone crossed my old Ellsworth Dare downhill MTB with my old Honda scooter.  Which is probably why I like it so much  :D

Here's a pic of my old Ellsworth.  That thing was a freakin' hucking machine.  Great for just pootling around and finding stuff to throw yourself off.  Now I am old and don't throw myself off things anywhere near as often.  Or at all  :)

I'd ride that to the local shop. The foot plates look like half a skateboard deck !  ;)

Living in Seattle with a fair number of bike commuters (myself included) it's only a matter of time before I see one of those on the trails.

I've been taking CBD oil twice daily for the past month.

@Filthy How many drops/ time and what % are you using?.. I'm going this route to help with muscle aches... Easy to order here from the Netherlands. It's not legal to prescribe it in Belgium, but legal to use it/ own it/ order it... But it's illegal to cross the border with it yourself... You figure it out...  ::)
