Researchers looked at 30 people who smoked about 10 joints a day and compared them to 30 who did not.

Holy Crap!  Ten a day, seems like you wouldn't have time or money for food.

Holy shiat I know. I mean when I have pot I'll smoke til it's gone but the most I've ever smoked has been 6 joints in one day. I couldn't imagine smoking 10 joints a day. Maybe those people just have shiatty pot?

I'm trying to figure out how anyone could smoke that much and be a functioning member of society.  Smoking an entire joint would give you the intoxicating effect of at least 2-3 shots of 80 proof.  10 times a day would put you in a state of permanent, debilitating inebriation.

If I'm on a diet I can't smoke. Munchies completely ruins it. "Cookies with my chickfila? Sure, I'll run it off tomorrow...". Repeat every day I smoke.

Only time I've done it is on 4/20 in college. And that was with about 6-10 other people hanging around. That's a shiat-ton for one person. And you'd figure if it was a research study they probably had some quality stuff.

When I was in school I need a job really badly and took one in a shack off the back of a factory making fiberglass pool walls.  The foreman gave me this bis speech that if I drank before or during work I was fired on the spot.  He look at the rest of the workers  and said ,"whose turn?"  One of the guys reached into his lunch bag, pulled out a plastic container and filled a one hitter. [One hitters are better than pipes or joints as you don't waste post while passing it. -their logic not mine]  They smoked before work, at lunch and both breaks every day.  Thursday night they would pick up their paychecks and cash them at the liquor store across the street and be absolutely penniless by Tuesday.

After the first couple of puffs you don't get any higher, although if you smoke all day you'll be high for longer. Kind of a waste of weed.

Drink water.  Food cravings in general tend to be caused by your brains association on "sweet == moist".  Marijuana is actually pretty effective at letting you starve yourself, if you hydrate.

There were rare occasions, long in the past, when I smoked ten joints in a day.  After about the third, it was not really having any effect.  I was already at maximum tree-sloth-mode.  But when you're young, you haven't yet figured out that more doesn't always mean better.

Flame me if you will (I think the stuff should be legal) but I'm glad I don't smoke it any more.
 
2013-04-26 09:22:12 AM
I guess I'm the exception here but I lose weight fast if I smoke pot because I hardly ever eat...

Also I only have one tattoo.

I could easily smoke a joint every hour all day and still be completely functional.  Someone who isn't a daily smoker most likely could not do that.  I could not, however, have a shot or 2 every hour all day.

10 a day is a lot I mean maybe if I play 36 holes of golf and then video games all night with my friends I'd get to that but it's unlikely.

It's been my experience that what Pot does is suppress the message your brain gets from your tummy that says "I'm full, knock it off' and that the munchies only begin once you've started eating and then go, "OMG! food is like amazing!" If you manage to not start eating, there is really no compulsion to veg out.

Nurglitch: After the first couple of puffs you don't get any higher, although if you smoke all day you'll be high for longer. Kind of a waste of weed.


Also the reason all the arguments about weed being so much stronger these days is total horse crap. it may well be stronger but you can only get so stoned, once your at that point any more you smoke is just wasted. The key is small amounts continually. strong weed just means you can smoke less.

That's why a lot of people follow it with a cigarette which helps put the message back in place.

It was created by a snowboarder, and can be used one handed on the lift.

Lightweight....

I use the one hitter mehod and take about 6-8 hits in a session, and believe me, the last one definitely makes me feel higher than the first two or three do.

Of course it does wear off eventually, requiring a reup session if you want to stay high.

/really? Two hits gets you as high as you can possibly get?

I avoid the munchies by eating before i get high. If i'm already hungry when i get high, the implications for world food supplies could be dire...

I am aware of their differences and that it's not a perfect comparison.  That still doesn't change the point that if you smoked that much there is no way you're going to be functioning on a level any higher than flipping burgers.  And if that's your job, there's no way you're able to afford to smoke that much all day.  And even if that is your job, the fact that you show up perma-stoned every day shows that one: you are a completely irresponsible individual that probably shouldn't be trusted near anything more dangerous than the salad bar, and two: that is likely the highest level of responsibility you are ever going to achieve in your life.

Unless you're a cancer patient on permanent disability, there is simply no justifiable reason to ever smoke that much on a daily basis.

Damn, last pot thread I was called a frat boy because I thought an eighth a day was fairly normal.

I'd like to just compare the faces of chronic drinkers to chronic smokers.  Dudes from school that drank chronically for a decade are some of the most shot out looking 30 year olds I've ever seen but smokers seem to be healthier and younger looking.  Probably confirmation bias though.  Still don't touch the booze unless I'm gambling or on vacation.

Not that it's any of your business, IT.  I'd ask you what you do but I honestly don't give a damn.

I never said I was perma-stoned throughout the day, I simply said I could smoke a joint an hour and be perfectly functional.  On a weekend, you might find me doing exactly that as I work around the homestead (and sometimes take after hours support calls for my job).

I'm not talking about on the weekend.  Yeah, I can talk my semi-computer illiterate parents through updating a license key over the phone on a Saturday afternoon after toking up, too.  The same can not be said for briefing my boss and a boardroom full of engineers on the intricacies of a new system while completely blazed.  If I tried to pull that I would be looking for a new job.

But I suppose according to you that's just because I'm unfortunately not one of those for whom weed makes them better at everything.
