“Medical” Marijuana

Now the last few entries haven’t been very angry. This one is to make up for that. How many of us have been merrily working along, to have some fucking douchebag come into your store and ask if you stock “medical” marijuana? How many of you have had said douchebag argue with you when you […]

Mag Citrate, Taco Bell, and Yours Truly

I figure that since I rag on everyone else on here, I mine as well post a dumbass move by yours truly. A few days ago, during work, I decided to eat 5 soft tacos from Taco Bell. Now any pharmacist knows that lunch time is much like bathroom time; a race to finish the […]

Angry noob, Disability often begins on welfare then migrates to the longer term SSD. I know you dont know this since you have yet to walk yourself through it. I never plan to walk through it. Plus, ask any pharmacist and you’ll find out that there are a shitpot more 25 year olds on SSD […]
