some food for thought: Definition of "mare" :an evil preternatural being causing nightmares Origin of MARE: Middle English, from Old English; akin to Old High German maraincubus, Serbo-Croatian moranightmareFirst Known Use: before 12th century finally realizing why the word "Marijuana" feels so unpleasant to me the other definition of "mare" is a female horse over 3 years old that has already been bred.Mares have a notorious, if generally undeserved, reputation for being "marish," meaning that they can be cranky or unwilling when they come into season. in any case a "mare" has negative subliminal implications in the Human psyche the Feds are the 'mare', and they knew the subliminal implications of rebranding this crop "Marihuana" in the early 1900s. their corporate overlords have truly profited from this Prohibition over the past 70 years. that being said, we should keep using the term, because it what people know. although we should be eager to work in "MJ", HERB, Tree, Buds, ganja, etc. instead of nightmarijuana ALL the time thoughts? criticism? just wanted to vent this.
