Research Ramblings & Pot meme

98% of the teenage population does/has tried pot. If you're part of the 2% who hasn't, copy this in your journal.

Q: Why not?

1) I question the accuracy of these numbers
2) I hate the sickly-sweet smell of pot that permeates everything it touches
3) There are much better ways to spend money
4) As a healthcare professional I know way too much about brain receptors and opiods and I even know how pot can kill you. Pharmacy school is about clean killing as much as about curing :)
5) Finally, it would cost me my license and my career.
6) I am not a teen

Unfortunately, the experiment in 96 well plates didn't work. No one ever tried to do this kind of work in 96 wells before; we tried and failed. I guess disappointments like cell line dying or new experimental techniques not working are a part of research, but they are still hard to accept. I had to change all the plans to fit 24 well plates. That also means I need more cells. And I had to make all the drugs anew. It's not easy to weigh out 2.2 mg accurately. Not easy at all.

Someone somewhere else (sorry lost the journal on friendsfriends) gave figures from research as being 20%.

*matter-of-factly* Did you know that 76% of all statistics are made up on the spot?



It is impossible to lick your elbow. After reading this, 70% of people will try to lick their elbow.

Big YAY! for statistics.
