(Some Apparent Lightweight)   Ft. Lauderdale man smokes 115,000th joint after years of averaging 10 a day, but never gets high. I'm not sure how you've managed after all this practice, but you're doing it wrong   (nbcmiami.com ) divider line

Every time I've tried weed I've never gotten high off it. I do, however get the munchies like a son of a biatch. It's pissed many a stoner friend of mine when they've been convinced they had some shiat that would totally mess me up.

This man is a god. Hasn't anybody thought to do an in depth study on him about the long term health effects of marijuana smoking?

Not that bad if he's using a vaporizer, bong, or bubbler.

I'd take the cancer risk if it meant my years alive weren't spent in constant pain.

If only the article provided a photo of him holding a joint and repeated mentions that he smokes joints.

Without the typical "you're doing it wrong" snark, may I ask if you've ever smoked a cigarette before? Do you get that tobacco high?

I've known people with this issue but they just didn't get practice at drawing the smoke into their lungs. If you draw it into your mouth and exhale, nothing is going to happen.

Either ths man is a rare case of being immune to the effects of THC/CBD/CBN or he is smoking subpar stash or his tolerance has sky rocketed and needs to switch to concentrates.

being its gov grown weed, I'm going to lean towards the 10/15 percent thc Pot they offer similar to what medicinal cannabis offered by the canadian is. Most A strains these days have 20/35+ percent thc content which isnt a joke or a lie. shiatty grown dope still exists and that shiat is anwhere from 5 to 15 percent thc average.

If people just extracted the THC from their buds they would truly see what they are getting and sometimes its devestatingly small returns on Supposedly Primo Bud.

Marcus Aurelius: Never gets high

This is what I am thinking. Some MM patients benefit from weed with very low THC content - there are other active chemicals in pot beside THC.
Glaucoma patients, as I understand it, benefit from smoking total ditchweed as much as they do from smoking Kine. It's apparently something other than the THC that works the "eye-dry" magic that gives most of us red eyes, and saves glaucoma patients vision.

Other MM patients (notably, those using weed for appetite stimulation) won't benefit at all from low-THC weed.
It's interesting, and needs to be researched. Hopefully the political climate now will allow that to happen.

Two things...

1. He's smoking the same government strain (schwag) he has been since that program started in 1982

2. Tolerance is a biatch

After 30 years of having a couple of joints worth after work, I've been about smoking 10 pipes a day for a year. I don't get high now either. Bye bye depression, bye bye cigarettes whose increasing taxes has made the evil weed a viable and uplifting alternative. As far as I can tell, no physical or mental degradation, I can still string a sentence or two together, pay my bills, taxes, etc.

You should take a few days off and let your tolerance go down.

So you also believe that Everclear is a superior alcoholic beverage choice to the finest of whiskeys or Cognacs, merely because it contains a higher % of ethanol?

Guylian: Is there an age when pot is no longer a trigger for schizophrenia?


I don't think it has been proven to cause schizophrenia has it? An opinion I heard is that it may exacerbate the underlying condition rather than being the cause. But generally, the kids who become schizophrenic smoked strong weed during formative years, so anywhere under the age of 18 (ish).

Does schizophrenia run in your family?

Could be he never gets high because he sells his government goods for cash and takes Advil for the pain. Just saying. He admitted he gets a lot of calls from people who need the drug. There's hardly time in a day to smoke as much as he claims.
