Re: Cannabis instead of opioids

If used as medicine, would cannabis use be a violation of the fifth precept? In my opinion, it would not be a violation of the fifth precept, if used as a medicine. The Buddha allowed medicine use.

kiva.org

Any other kiva.org lenders here? I really like the format of this program. It is sort of like the saying, "give a man a fish, feed him for one day; teach a man to fish, feed him for life." The kiva loans go to people starting a business or trying to expand their business or for home repairs, school ...

Re: World Cup 2018

Germany Brazil and Argentina are always favorites. In this upcoming world cup, Portugal and England might perform well and surprise us. I have been cheering England national team for years, to my own disappointment so far. Yes, it would be nice if England performs well, if for no other reason that ...

Re: Wheel Colours

More seriously, I'm in favour of a pale 'natural' colour - green or an earth tone - but the green in the side panel doesn't go well with the blues elsewhere or, and neither does the tan of quoted text.
