evidently there's a whole lot of confusion between that and the caduceus

Mostly professional organizations use the rod of Asclepius, commercial ones don't care and use what they think people will recognize. Language meanings change over time too, idk why I get my knickers in a twist over this one.

the stoned Eye of Providence.

Did you just make that up?

I hear ya......evidently, the US military had a lot to do with the confusion in the US.....they adopted the caduceus as the insignia for their medical corps...officially in 1902.

Hmm...not exactly....I found the image on a stoner site......the eye is obviously burnt out from smoking weed.....gotta have eyedrops to ease the pain and hopefully cover the obvious high..... 8-)

come on, Pan.... I really have to explain this?....aren't there any stoners in the house...:lol:....

Just saw this topic today and uploaded an avvy. I just haven't gotten around to it and when I've thought about it, have been indecisive. But I'm glad you posted this topic, Mocha.

Madelyn.....We stay away from animated/flashing images on the site because of our members with seizure disorders......

But please ....we want you to upload another avvy asap.....I love it when our members have one. It adds so much to the board.

And I'm so glad you're sticking around......it's a pleasure having you here...... :)

Sorry, Mocha, I hadn't thought of that. Thanks for letting me know!

I've added one of Princess Leah. Carrie Fisher, who plays as her, is someone I love very much. She has bipolar disorder and struggles with addiction.

Thank-you. I'm glad I have found this place. :)

Time to bump the avatar thread. We have so many new members now, it sure would be nice if you guys would join in with avatars of your own.... :)

As I've said before, it adds so much to the board......and tells us a little about yourself.

What does mine represent? Well, that's pretty obvious....:lol:....

I live in CA and I'm voting for the Adult Use Of Marijuana Act, for the legalization of MJ. After 20 yrs of MMJ, it's about time.

So what about you? Want to join in the fun?
