Flogging My Own Hobby Horse

So NJ has medical marijuana now. It appears it won't be the free-for-all fun like there is here in CA, but it's a good start.

However, I have to hate on this NYT article for this sentence:

Under California law, residents can obtain legal marijuana for a list of maladies as common, and as vaguely defined, as anxiety or chronic pain.
Hey, assholes, chronic pain isn't poorly defined. I have a simple questionnaire that can diagnose it quickly and easily.
1) Do you suffer from recurring pain that inhibits your daily life and does not respond to to typical treatments and remedies
If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, congratulations! Pain specialists agree that it's all in your head and you need to stop all the goddamn whining for fuck's sake. Any certified physician will gladly write you a prescription for nutting the fuck up.


Also, I'm pretty sure anxiety can be diagnosed, but I'm not such an expert on that.

People would come to the Kinkos where I worked to have their cards laminated: Insomnia & back pain were two of the most popular chronicisms people suffered from.

And you bet anxiety can be diagnosed.

It's very trouble-free to find out any matter on web as compared to books, as I found this post at this web site.
