Speef: America is funny.

Drugs are Bad. We hate drugs! Oh, they're SO bad. Only bad people use them. We have WAR on drugs. Kill drugs!  We hate drugs because dirty druggies use drugs. They're bad too!

Meanwhile, your average rich old white lady is so stoned she can't tell you what her name is or what day day it is. She's got nine kinds of painkillers mixed with all kinds of shiat. She hasn't set a foot in reality in ten years. She drives a giant SUV and rarely manages to stay on one lane. This is LEGAL and GOOD because she is a rich white lady with prescriptions (as opposed to a brown person smoking a marijuana cigarette; that would be a filthy druggie, which would be several kinds of bad, and he would need to go to prison right away).

Well, on second thought, that's not as funny as I thought it was.
Is Canada still open?



once Colorado starts flashing all that weed money around and the state utilizes that new source of revenue, other states will be lining up to get their filthy greedy paws on legalization (the sick farks).
It'll be as if the White Man never said anything bad about MARIJUANA, ever, never associated it with minorities and the criminal element.

The problem comes when those people getting high are in a job that requires careful attention to detail for the safety of themselves and others around them, like operating a deep-fry machine.

Friend of mine has an AroMed vaporizer. Hands down the best one I've had the opportunity to use.

www.marijuana-picture.com

I like it a lot better than the volcano or basic heating element ones.

Also, I can't verify but their marketing materials have an endorsement from Albert Hofman, so it's got that going for it.

Huggermugger: violentsalvation: So they've solved the smell problem, which is the only thing I can't stand about pot junkies. The goddamn putrid stench. Vape on, you marijuana reefer felons.

The other night I worked late, and when I was walking home I took the short route through a small park.  As I passed the slide I saw two teenage boys sitting on the ladder, giggling.  I figured they were smoking weed, so I detoured to avoid any smoke.  DAMN!!!  Despite the fact that I was about 30 feet away, I still ended up getting a contact high.


I know what that's like! A coffee drinker breathed on me and I had the jitters all afternoon. I calmed down when an alcoholic coughed thirty feet from me, but I didn't get too wasted.

Only real concern?  The stink is pretty nasty, ruin your otherwise enjoyable experience at the movies.

Fortunately I'd already seen the Hobbit 2 so it wasn't completely ruined.  Did have to do laundry right after though.

unyon: FTFA: But the key features of discreet design and lack of smell have drug experts concerned people will toke up anywhere they want.

Isn't discretion (or the lack thereof) essentially the reason that we don't permit public consumption of any intoxicant?  And if people around you are completely unaware and that discretion maintained, then why is it illegal?


People walk down the street here with lit joints/blunts as it is, so they kind of already toke up wherever they want.

I suppose I didn't explain myself well. The smell of pot was so strong, presumably due to the quantity smoked or maybe a sloppily rolled joint, that there was enough of it in the air to get me high.

I simply do not believe you got high by passing within 30 feet of someone smoking a joint outside. Do you get carbon monoxide poisoning from a car passing in front of your home?

Peki: 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 just had some toast. I wanted something crunchy but there wasn't any snacks around. But the toast didn't come out crunchy, it was a bit soft. If I let it stay in the toaster until it got crunchy then it would have burnt. I need to get a new toaster. It's even worse with waffles because you have to turn it all the way up and then the edge burns while most of it doesn't even brown. Anyway i had toast with butter and then I put some sugar cinnamon on it two. That tasted good and I had some tea with it all. But I still want something crunchy. idk

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

Then they're using a crappy burnt coil.

I'll be really sad when they ban these things. I like how they've completely stopped my idle snacking. Who needs nicotine when you have delicious, delicious peanut butter banana or apple pie filling your head?

As the marijuana movement gains momentum, so do the various methods of getting high.

2014-02-27 08:12:28 AM  
Doctors say there is some medical evidence to back up that assertion. "If you're vaporizing the same amount vs. smoking the same amount, the vaporizer would be less harmful for you," says Dr. Frank Lovecchio of Banner Health Poison Center.

"It's bogus; it's wrong," says substance abuse prevention expert Shelley Mowrey . "It's not a healthier form of marijuana."


Well now, look who has their agenda all out in the open there.

If you have a burnt smell from your vapouriser, you don`t have one good enough. Get one that does not burn whatever you put in it. If you are smoking blunts? Hell yeah. That smell coats you for the day unless you shower and wash your hair and change your clothes.

Nope, vaporizer with a thermostat, never above 365-370. Never noticed anything with it turned on, but definitely do when opening it up to stir or empty it. I'd assume the exhaled stuff is going to smell just like it tastes, but haven't been using one long enough to tell if there's any residual smell.

The smell does linger for a little bit, but unless you're actually burning the stuff the smell won't stick around for very long.  If someone were to walk into the room right after you just took a few big hits they would smell something, but since it's vapor and not smoke it doesn't stick around.  Crack a window if you're worried about it, or if you want to be extra-careful you could use a cardboard tube (from an empty roll of TP or paper towels) and put some sheets of fabric softener inside - blow the vapor through the tube and the room will smell like you just pulled a bunch of clothes out of the dryer.

I exhale my smoke (not vape) into a wet towel when I'm in a hotel. It gets a bit resined, but I just rub some soap on it in the shower the next day. Never any issues with smoking weed in my room.
