tedbundee: Yawn. Some day we're going to have evidence that cannabis expands consciousness. Until then, I'll continue doing my own, um, research.


we already have that... and beer is related to that as well..

cannabis and Hops are botanical cousins...

but pot cant be used as a hop directly in brewing, and hops wont get you high like pot..

our modern notion of the Halloween witch is rooted in the old midevil ale wives. who, along with being the community beer makers were also the herbologists, the apothocariasts, and healers. if they had access to pot, they knew what to do with it. and it, along a whole assortment of differnt herbs and roots what have you have been well known and them, along with alcohol have always been used religiously, and ritualistically for humans to expand their awareness.

if humans are really good at ANYTHING, it is altering thier sense of reality. every single culture on this planet has traditional ways of getting farked up. from native hooch to native herb.

the author of the article hinted at that tribalism, but painted it over in opinion to make a anti booze screed at the end of the piece...

by the way, you can use pot in brewing, but you gotta use it as a dry hop on the secondary side to extract any THC because in the boil, there is nothing for the THC to bind to and you end up with a beer that tastes like bong water. but on the secondary side, THC is soluable in alcohol, so you will get extraction, and you will pick up some flavor of the nug but cook it off into a vegetable tasty nastiness..

or.. so I've heard...

whistleridge: dg41: Delicious? Really?

Yes. Really.

If you do not think it is delicious, you need to go back and get an adult sense of taste. Check back in with us when you do.


you're only a grown up when you drink the right kind of booze. you're only good enough if you smoke the same cigarettes at me.

CygnusDarius: Albert911emt: Porter and stout, bourbon and whiskey, are the best things in life

Conan/Genghis Khan do not agree.


Sorry, I forgot the rest...

Addendum: Porter and stout, bourbon and whiskey....aaaand to crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.

fusillade762: Fear_and_Loathing: Step 3: Was it was safer than the water.

This. I can't believe TFA didn't mention that part. When you live in large cities with poor sanitation booze becomes crucial. It also explains why American Indians generally don't tolerate alcohol well.


Also, the pilgrims didn't trust water, but they didn't bring beer with them (they drank it, I guess), so they made beer... With acorn.
