Repot, Repots, Repoter*, Repoting (Report, Reports, Reporter*, Reporting)

What goes around comes around, and that would appear to apply to both "bogarting the joint" as well as the overall consideration of cannabis as medicine. Medical marijuana is currently legal in 16 states, as well as up in Canada, where our neighbors to the north have been able to freely smoke pot (with a note from their doc) for going on several years now. The old-fashioned "fluid extract" shown to the left is described on the label as an "antispasmodic, sedative, and narcotic." It's also 80% alcohol. I recently heard of a friend of a friend who often enjoys a homemade version of this elixir, but I'd never heard of a major drug company offering such a thing to its customers. Perhaps Eli Lilly should quit manufacturing questionable "antidepressants" such as Prozac and go back to this tried and true tincture made from the world's most well-known mood-elevating plant. There were reports of today's typos occurring a total of 15 times in OhioLINK (and 267, 63, 23, and 16 times apiece in WorldCat). Although there seemed to be some false "hits" among them, it's a typo of pretty "high" probability.
