n case you haven’t heard, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd ate a marijuana candy bar in a Denver hotel room and had an intensely uncomfortable experience that left her feeling confused and, at times, frightened.
—Using marijuana edibles to get high doesn’t typically produce such an extreme departure from reality — but it can. While pot-infused foods have been around for decades, as Colorado continues to adapt to its new marijuana laws, these products have emerged as a popular and potent way to get stoned. And as with any substance, there’s a potential for misuse.
—The best way to avoid a bad trip like Dowd’s would be to make sure you’re informed about proper dosages and to always approach marijuana, and especially edibles, with caution. But due to a lack of proper education, reckless behavior, or perhaps purely by accident, this is sometimes harder than it sounds. So there you are, high as balls and 1,000 percent positive your life is about to end. We’re here to help you get through this potentially agonizing experience.
—Above all, just remember…
My name is Elaine and I suffer from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy(RSD). I have had it for almost 20 years now, and there is no cure.
I was a paramedic, and I was working when the accident occurred. I was taking a 200lb patient out of the ambulance, when the trigger mechanism on the stretcher malfunctioned, causing the stretcher to collapse, and it hit just above my patella (kneecap) and kept dropping.
—My job was to get my patient into the hospital and into the waiting ER, so I did that, then I assessed my knee. I called in to my dispatch, and was instructed to go to the doctor. Once there, I had a basic evaluation, but no x-rays, and was told I would need to take a few days off, and then start physical therapy once the swelling was gone, and I should be able to return to work.
—>Well a week later, it was still swollen, and I was unable to bear any weight at all… so I was sent for x rays, and an MRI. The doctor came into the room, and explained that my patella had moved medially and laterally down to just above my ankle, and I would need surgery immediately. He also explained that I had a partial rupture of the quadriceps, a torn fascia, a torn meniscus, and torn patella tendon.
—I was in surgery later that evening. I woke up from the operation, and felt sore, but nothing horrible. They gave me pain meds, and the pain pretty much went away. I was discharged a few days later, and told I had a slight infection, I was given antibiotics and pain meds.
E. J. Bellocq, Storyville Portrait, New Orleans, 1912 (33.2004)
E. J. Bellocq was a wealthy French-Creole man living in New Orleans at the turn of the twentieth century. He was known professionally as a photographer of landmarks, ships, and commercial machinery, but upon his death in 1949, a seedier side of the hunchbacked, dwarf-like photographer was discovered. Among Bellocq’s effects were eighty-nine haunting glass-plate negatives taken around 1912 of prostitutes in New Orleans’ legalized red-light district, Storyville.
