dallylamma: I wish my neighbour across the hall would start using a vaporizer. The hallway and stairwell reek like Otto's jacket now.


At my old apartment the bathroom vents were linked so when the downstairs neighbors were getting high in the bathroom, my bathroom smelled. My mom came over for a visit and when she got out of the bathroom she asked

Mom: Hey are you smoking weed? your bathroom reeks of it.

Groppet: No mom its the downstairs neeighbors. How do you know what weed reeks of anyways mooom? (big grin)

Mom: Shut up ahole.

"It's a concern," says Colby Carpenter... "Just like people buying alcohol and using it out in the middle of the street on a Tuesday night."

Yep. That's Friday night behavior.

As has been said, vodka and breath mints. This is stupid.

In fact, take any argument you have against pot and apply it to alcohol - you'll probably find that the problem already exists with alcohol and somehow society hasn't exploded.

I work in a plastics Factory.
If they want to smoke weed on break and then proceed to get something cut off,or killed, I don't really care.
 
2014-02-26 04:41:26 PM  

FumblingTowardsSanity: That fact that this is "new" to all of these people, law enforcement included, tells me that they aren't really paying attention to what they claim to really care about.


I think it's the increased visibility of e-cigs. Now it's harder to tell if someone if puffing nicotine or weed wax.

/the e-cigs also smell a lot less than the normal vapos.

Keep it clean. If you don't, the contacts where the mouthpiece connect with the rest of the device get dirty and you never get the green x light. If you keep those contacts nice and clean it will last you a long time! Enjoy!

I know someone's using one when I smell slightly burnt popcorn.


You sure that's not the popcorn I forgot about when I was vaping in the bathroom?

In the past year I noticed a big increase the number of people using vaporizers in public. I thought all the cool kids used hash oil. Isn't it cheaper and I stronger high?
 
2014-02-26 04:48:26 PM  
I'm a daily pot smoker, but I never went to work high. I did smoke a cigarette one day (I only have about one a year), and that was ten times worse than what I imagined trying to work while high would be. Sheesh.

I wore out an original volcano. switches and thermostat finally gave out. Onto a Vapir no2 now. I enjoy it and way quieter than a volcano.

Dinki: I use a vaporizor. Anyone that says those things are completely scent free doesn't know what they are talking about.


Depends on what you mean by "vaporizor" but I will also give you a technical "You are correct" as you use the phrase "completely scent free".

The kind you load with MJ, like volcano, will smell pretty damn good.

The oil I use with a pen vape has an almost imperceptible odor.  You'd have be right next to me or in a car to smell anything.  I've been told that my passenger couldn't smell anything, but I'm going to err on the side of caution that you have a much better sniffer than she did.

As long as they aren't operating heavy machinery, driving buses, trains, flying planes, stuff like that, i don't care. I've known some very functional stoners in my life, and the ones I've known that "weren't functional" really didn't have any worse problems than it being really hard to get them to go out and actually DO anything, they just wanted to sit home and bake. Otherwise, they weren't dangerous to be around.

Like I said though, operating machinery, driving, flying, those are a different story.

I use the prefilled OpenVape cartridges so I don't have to mess with it.  I use a simple eGo-T for a battery and no muss, no fuss.

Boojum2k: Who the hell pays $200 minimum for a vaporizer? You can buy one online for like $40.


Yeah, you can buy one for $40, so long as you don't mind getting a piece of crap that doesn't heat evenly or consistently and quits working in less than a year.

That said you don't need to spend $200 for one, either.  I bought mine for $160 4 years ago and it's still going strong, and there are several good options closer to the $100 mark.

/ course I have had to replace every glass piece on it at one point or another due to clumsiness, but the heating element keeps on rocking

You left out Ambien, that makes people get up, find their car keys and wrap their car around a tree while still asleep. Still legal.

Pimparoo: I've been looking for a good vaporizer that isn't super expensive. Does any one have any suggestions? (Won't be used for tobacco)


Get a vaporizer pipe.  I use one like at this link, and it works great.  There's a slight learning curve while you figure out how to heat it properly, but they last longer than electric vaporizers, don't require anything beyond a lighter and your smokables, and don't cost $200-$700.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again.. Marijuana advocates are their own worst enemies.

"It's bogus; it's wrong," says Mowrey. "It's not a healthier form of marijuana."

Citation needed..

See lady, while I think that pot may be healthier to smoke than tobacco, I would say that lighting ANYTHING on fire and then deliberately inhaling it is less healthy than not doing that.
 
2014-02-26 05:08:27 PM  
Much more worried about people with their completely legal prescription drugs - the ones that are real, heavy duty drugs - and the people who get those same drugs in slightly less than legal ways.

/Legal opiates = much greater danger than a little weed.

havocmike: I've said it before, and I'll say it again.. Marijuana advocates are their own worst enemies.


How?

I mean I do agree with that on certain points, but how exactly are they their own worst enemies in regards to this? If anything, it seems like the anti-weed groups shot themselves in the foot with this.
