I asked a question about marijuana for medical use relating to a paleolithic diet. Marijuana is a plant part that is legal for medical prescription in some areas of the country. The question related to paleolithic diets because it is a natural plant with toxicities and benefits, and I was interested in the paleo perspective of these decision criteria.
In fact, its usage is increasingly supported by peer reviewed literature for some medical conditions, such as my own. In paleolithic times, I have no doubt that herbs were used for medicinal purposes, and this one sure is. "Let our food be our medicine, and our medicine be our food" (Hippocrates)
I do not see the question listed under my questions, so I assume it got deleted. Explanation please?

I deleted it because it has nothing to do with Paleo. Plus, the tone was utterly sophomoric. I am too busy to notify folks when I delete their posts. C'est la vie.
On the plus side, I don't take it personally when I come across a post that needs deleting -- and neither should you take it personally if I delete it.
For the record: I have no position on marijuana - either pro or con.
Yeah, I noticed my question from a few days back about the weirdest benefit of going paleo, was suddenly gone the next day. Stephen made a sorta sex oriented response, but I didn't think it was that bad compared to other comments made in other threads. Plus it was just one response. I was a bit surprised. NOt sure what the problem was but it would be nice to know why it was deleted. Usually if a thread is too similar to a previous one, then the previous one is linked. I just thought it would be interesting to see what kinds of surprising outcomes and things people have experienced, instead of just the same ones we always hear about like better energy, etc. If I don't understand why the thread was nuked, I will be more likely to commit the same mistake again.
You should probably delete my thread entitled "You’re on Death Row. What would your last meal be?" The tone is similarly jokey, and is not directly related to paleo. (Not being sarcastic, it really doesn't fit with nutrient/biochem/etc kind of questions)
