Do you think that marijuana should be legalized?

I do, for medicinal purposes, and possibly private home use if it can be regulated. Its medical benefit has been consistently proven undeniable, but any substance in excess is harmful.

Tylenol will kill you in excess, but stop a headache at the right amount. Water is what keeps you alive, but too much of it and you’ll drown. Marijuana helps the symptoms of a variety of diseases, but too much will alter your brain chemistry (at least temporarily).

As far as home use, I don’t care if people smoke in their homes, just as long as I don’t have to endure it in public. I feel the same about cigarettes.

All that being said, my life keeps me at a decent height.

How tall are you?

I met Miss America on Tuesday, I’m a smidge taller than she is, while she’s wearing heels. Like, no one can ever convince me I’m not tall enough ever again lol.

She’s also really cool, she’s seen every star wars, episode 6 is her favorite (also mine), she graduated with a degree in cognitive science and brain behavior, and was waiting on acceptance letters to medical schools when she won Miss America. One of the coolest, most intelligent, and nicest people I’ve ever talked to.

I went into it thinking she was gonna be ditzy and superficial, and I was there just as support for the organization that brought her, because they help out my MSA a lot (Asian American Student Union). I was very pleasantly surprised with who she actually was.

Being both the author, and main character, of our story means sometimes we have to cut someone from the tale to make room for ourselves to continue.

A colleague of mine did not get his polio shot for that exact reason. He went back to his home town and caught..... polio. He now has a very visible physical disability. All because someone made the decision that the shot was not necessary. Silly.

The data is absolutely undeniable. And they have saved countless lives.

It’s a godsend of a medical stride and they can only get better.

I’m sorry to hear about your colleague though, may God make it easy for him.

Last Ramadan I felt an insane amount of guilt for not finishing the Qur’an in the month. A strange feeling, I must admit.

But I’ve promised myself I’ll read it all the way through at least twice a year. It’s time I start a session.

These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold — and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus, son of Mary, is revealed to the world.

How strange. I was discussing your peeve with a sibling today.

Yeah? I mean I understand corporations can turn medication into business, but I’m fairly certain the original intent of the researchers and developers wasn’t to make money, but to help someone with their drug.

And vaccines aren’t even business.. That’s just common sense.

what is your biggest pet peeve?

To tell you the truth I actually can’t think of one. I don’t think anything really annoys me that much.

When I had roommates, I’d hate when they’d use my dishes and not wash them, but I live alone now. So idk. Ummm, OH, when people think medicine or vaccinations are bad for humans - that annoys me.

Once an old friend of mine, from Church, told me I converted to a “Pokemon Rock God” religion.

To this day I don’t know if he said that because he was ignorant about Islam, or he thought I had just caught the Pokemon named Regirock.

What would you do if your wife kept money (a substantial amount) hidden from you?

I mean, in Islam a wife’s wealth isn’t obligated to be shared with her husband, so I don’t expect her to tell me about, or give me any, of her riches.

As long as she’s not spending it on the superfluous, when our family is struggling, then more power to her.
