I am amused by the vehemence of the "no" answers from some posters. Not just a "no, not for me", but like a visceral reaction, like instead of pot, the OP was asking if you'd ever smoke crack while you fucked your brother. It's marijuana, guys, stop thinking Reefer Madness was full of facts. You're probably gonna giggle and really want Doritos, not try and kill and rape your neighbor (in that order).

Anyway, no, probably not, would I do it. I might give it another try, some other strain, maybe edibles, but generally I don't like the buzz it gives me. I'm more of a drinker.

I'd be too afraid of looking like a square for not knowing how to hold the marijuana cigarette correctly. But I don't need it. I've heard people smoke the devil's lettuce because it makes music sounds better, but in my humble opinion the music of Pat Boone can't be improved upon.

^ This response nailed this thread..

Against the popular theme of responses here, I partook a bit for 15 years, late teens and 20s.
Drank very little in those days.

Toking motivated me; to work out, clean the house, mow the yard, and be able to tolerate my first wife.
Three hits of skunk weed in 1985 was all I need to chill out or work out.
When we had kids, I quit smoking pot, got divorced 4 years later.
Also when I got divorced, I changed employment classification and was under regulation of DOT laws and random drug testing.
I quit for my kids first, and my job second.

But when I quit pot, I drank more, because it was legal.
When I drank more, I gained weight.
More weight that I ever gained from getting the Maryjane munchies.

I like a buzz sometimes at the end of the day, not everyday, but at times.
I guess I'm not as straight laced, prudish, and a control freak as some that posted in this thread.
I like to loosen up at bit...

There are several strains of Marijuana.
Some make you tired, mellow, and sleepy.
Some can motivate you to get off your ass.
Neither have ever made me as inebriated as alcohol, ever.
I don't drink liquor and get shitfaced, I just enjoy an occasional beer or 3.

If it was legal in Texas, I might look into it, but I doubt the DOT will ever allow it.
Although I enjoyed the act of smoking it back in the day (inhale and exhale), the weed is far more potent now.
I'd more likely look into edibles or maybe buy another 1-hitter dugout.
Points for those who know what that is... Big Grin

Probably have to wait until I retire in 4 to 5 years to check it out if it does indeed become federally legal.

If I could partake a hit, or edible, of ganja from time to time, I'd never drink again... Wink

Don't freak the fuck out on me.
I don't drink and be around firearm related activities (range, cleaning, buying, selling, carrying) the same would go for the cannabis..


Thanks..

I smoked plenty back in the day. Some of us grew it, so called UW strain it was really good.
It’s legal here, I went in a pot store to get some CBD for the dogs on New Year’s Eve a couple years ago.
Looking around in there I thought it was pretty cool seeing the big selection.
I have friends who still do it. My sister smokes it for her migraines.
My wife and I don’t smoke it, haven’t done any for 20 years. I won’t go back to it.

Tried it for a short time when I was young and dumb. I must have an addictive nature as I started craving it like a kid and candy. So I stopped immediately.

Then I heard of a local fellow who was high at work and a machine ripped his arm off at his shoulder. NOPE! AIN'T GONNA DO IT!

I don't care at all. Smoke, shoot up, snort. I don't care.

I'm all about true freedom. Choice and consequences.

However, I am a total authoritarian when it comes to fucking up someone else's lives. Harm someone while driving incapacitated, fuck you, everything you got is gone and you get to live your life digging coal or whatever resource is needed for free market capitalism. You kill them? Goodbye, you get to contribute by becoming fertilizer. Choices, you could have stayed home to fuck yourself up.


Some folks just have to stay high all the time to numb the reality they are too stupid to do any better in life.

I have no interest at all for recreational purposes. If I ever tried it for medical reasons, I wouldn't smoke it. I don't think inhaling any type of smoke is good for your lungs and see no need to risk even minimal lung damage.

Agreed with Airsoftguy. The replies here are pretty interesting.

There are a few things that some people may not know about the marijuana nowadays. Back when you were buying your $5 lid in the 60’s it was trash weed. The percentage of THC (the psychoactive chemical in marijuana that gets you high) in the weed if the past was in the single digits. If you were scoring 7%-9% THC weed, you had your hands on some super killer weed.

Fast forward 40-60 years.

Botany and science. Plants nowadays are high yield in weight, the plants grow more flower buds, and larger buds. That is not the important factor though. The percentage of THC produced is quite high. There are strains of pot you can buy that are up to 28% THC. That’s the highest percentage “flower”, or “bud” I have seen. This is three to four times more potent than the weed of yesteryear. So the weed they are smoking now, is as potent as the hash we used to score.

Wait, there’s more. Now, there is wax and shatter. These are concentrates of marijuana. So when we were young, you might get some hash, and that was really potent. Now if you want potent, the concentrates are where it is, yielding between 70%-90% THC.

Let’s do a little math here.
An ounce of old school pot. 28 grams x 5% THC = 1.4 grams of THC. This is in an entire ounce.
One gram of shatter. 1 gram x 90% = .9 gram of THC. This is in one GRAM
Using a dab rig (bong) with a titanium or crystal nail, you can burn up a 1/4 gram in a single hit. (The kid referenced below, bragged about taking multiple gram dabs, so a 1/4 gram dab isn’t really huge).
Old school weed hit .0125 gram of THC. (Based off smoking 1/4 gram of weed which is at least half a joint).
One hit of shatter = .225 gram of THC.

So we are talking about smoking a substance that is 18 times stronger than what we smoked in many years past. So basically one hit of the current concentrates are the equivalent of smoking nine joints back in the day, or 4.5 grams of weed.

I had a young man working for me that would dab before work. He was working on a career as a dabster. (Yes, people now get employed by pot companies to smoke their products and review them). He would show up at work and would be so completely baked it was impossible to communicate. The kid was so stoned that when speaking with him, it was like talking to a wall. At best it would be a five second delay in any response from him.
When he quit (court ordered) he never snapped completely out of it. He literally smoked himself stupid.

Now I know this post sounds like I am against smoking weed. I’m not. To each their own. I really don’t have a problem with it. With that said, taking a couple tokes long ago, and taking a hit of concentrate nowadays is the same as comparing taking shots of a Minnesota 3.2 beer vs taking shots of Everclear (95% grain alcohol).

I thought some here in this thread might enjoy these facts.

I smoked some during college, got away from it in law school, quit well before I entered the Army and never went back.

I won't go back now. I don't like the smell, I have asthma so I don't want to irritate my lungs, can't stand dry mouth, and don't have anyone in my social circle who is a smoker. Generally, my middle aged friends enjoy a beer together, and that's about it.

So long as our cops are trained to spot the impaired on the roads, and the impaired are treated like drunks, then I'm fine with it.

Kind of to Marzy's point, do it if it's your thing, but negatively affect others because you are irresponsible, then the gloves come off.

Given the odd info we received, when we considered making CBD products (for any Feds reading, we didn't even bring in samples for trial, as instructed.), I think there's a "crack" form of THC, as well.

We received rather specific, and complicated instructions, on what not to do to the CBD with traces of THC, lest we make it intoxicating.

Yep. But there are ways around that, like with pills or edibles.

As stated, if I were to give it a try, I'd want to do it through some means other than smoking, partly due to lung health, and partly because of the rank smell.

Kinda like with cigarettes, users get numb to the smell. It's comical at times. Johnny Stoner thinks he's being so sly, but everyone around him clearly knows that he smokes weed just based off the distinctive smell permeating his clothes/skin/hair/car/house/etc.

There are various means to concentrate THC into a higher potency liquid or solid form, as mentioned above by Beancooker. This is typically done using high THC "real" marijuana from the start, to more easily produce very highly concentrated THC substances like "wax"/"shatter"/"oil"/etc.

But even if the CBD only contained traces of THC small enough to be unable to cause a high, it could potentially be chemically manipulated into a format concentrated enough to cause a high. It would just take a while and require a very large amount of CBD, due to the very low THC content of the original CBD substance. So it probably wouldn't be worth the effort.

(Similar concept to something like boiling or evaporating salt water to produce salt. If you start out with just mildly salty water, you'll only end up with a little salt, and it would take a lot of that mildly salty water to produce a usable amount of salt. But if you start off with really salty water, you end up with more salt more quickly.)
