Can I still use these? Tampon edition.

I have about 100 tampons that got wet under the sink sometime in the past five hours. They're not exactly soaked, but they're all decidedly damp (wrapped in paper), and the cardboard applicators kind of collapse if pushed on. Is it safe to use them if they can be dried out? If so, how best to quickly & thoroughly dry them out? [more inside]

Missing the Monthly Gift

Has anyone here experienced a skipped menstrual cycle after quitting regular marijuana use, or know of someone who has? If so, how long did it take to get back to normal again?
