Haha I hide mine in a ps2 game case and I've came home really high before.

Haha my stuff is in an old stuffed animal that has a zipper on the bottom where a sound box used to be that made the animal talking when you squeezed it. It's a perfect spot. The stuffed animal is so old that no one touches it anymore, and the inside of it is so spacious. I can fit a half ounce and a box of cigs in there.

Haha. I dreamt that I had a bag of weed. I'm waiting until April to buy any I think. We'll see, that is pretty far away.

I also dreamt about Ozzy.
And other things, but nobody needs to know.

Just thought I'd share that with you guys, it really got me thinking.

I love looking at the stars on a nice clear night while I'm baked. A good song to listen to while doing that is Bold As Love. I quite enjoy it, anyway.

Was it a bear with a plastic heart on the outside that lit up? Probably not, but I had one like that, I think you could record things.

That looks beautiful.

It's pretty good stuff, but it hasn't quite been cured properly yet. Another week or so and it'll be in prime smoking condition. Tastes raw right now, but still has some pretty strong effects.

Which is kind of annoying though, since once I got the new stuff, I rolled up the rest of my old weed into a huge blunt and brought it to my friend's place. We smoked maybe 1/3 to 1/2 of it and put it out, but I forgot the rest of it there :/

Still have some roaches though, so I've got some decent-smoking, potent weed in the mean time.

Yeah many Americans are still brainwashed to believe almost like some reefer madness type shit. It's quite pathetic, and it makes Bob Marley cry from beyond the grave.
Quite inconvenient that you forgot your half-blunt, you should never leave things like that lying around when you're baked. :/

With some people, it's almost like they want to believe the bullshit instead of the truth. My mum, for example. I remember a few years ago, I'd talk to her some mornings outside during the summer about how good marijuana is and how it should be legalised and all that. Well I stopped talking to her because it's pretty hopeless. Even when I stopped using it, she still would send me emails about how I need to "stop using" or "get clean" and like I said earlier, she thinks it stays in your system and messes with you long after you've stopped. She just wants the drama I think, because she makes me out to be some kind of black sheep. My cousins and my brother have smoked weed, but I'm the only one who gets bitched at or talked about. Haha, now I'm just complaining about my mum and stuff. But she needs to leave me alone. I'm 21, and she's yelled at me for having sex. lol, it's not cool. Shit, I totally rambled in my post :(

Don't even talk to her about it. Parents are such liars. When my mom found a pot seed on the floor of my room, she asked me if I smoked pot, so I told her yes. Then she asked me when i started, so I lied and said that I had started about two weeks earlier, when in fact I had smoked for over a year almost daily. She said that she had noticed me acting differently these past two weeks hahahahahaha.

So my brother and a friend of ours ride up the street to the gas station, and before the dude pulls up, a cop rolls by. The dude pulls up and asks if he can do the deal at our house, so my brother figured that'd be better than doing it right in front of the gas station.

We were originally gonna get 2g of KB for $30 and our friend was gonna cut the dealer's hair. Then the guy says he doesn't want a hair cut, so he'll do 2g for $35. We didn't have $35, so he says he's going back to his house to weigh out 1.5 for $30. (His house is only about 5 minutes from the gas station in one direction, ours is 5 minutes in the other.) He takes about 20 minutes to a half hour, and finally gets to our house. About 5 minutes after the deal, another cop creeps by our house while we're packing up a bowl. Then he drove by again the other way and drove up the road.

Weird.

Fuck that guy. And his texts. And the police?

Nah not that last one unless they're pigs.

Most of mine are my friends, but they don't do sketchy shit either. I like to get feedback when I sell shit, but I don't even request it, I just let them say what they're gonna say, and if that turns out to be nothing, I assume they are satisfied.

That looks like what I was buyin about 4 months ago from a dealer who, unlike most of the people I get shit from, is not really my friend. He was, however, interesting to buy from. He had different shit just about every time I bought from him, which prompts the Forrest Gump quote, "Life is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you're gonna get."

Smoked some buds at the beach today. It's pretty awesome because apparently lifeguards don't start working until May or June, so the beach is virtually empty. Also had a bottle of vodka with us... pretty tight.

Too bad the water is like, 50 degrees with no waves, but summer isn't too far away.

Probably weren't inhaling into your lungs. That happened to me the first couple times I smoked too.

A good way to start out is to take your hit and have it in your mouth/lungs and then take a small breath. That will make sure you get the smoke into your lungs.

Technically your first time should be when you get the most high cuz you have 0 tolerance, but most people don't because they do it wrong.

Probably didn't inhale properly. Just keep trying, you'll get it eventually. Sometimes it takes a few tries. You could try to get a buddy to help you out if you don't mind being told what to do.

You didn't hold it properly. You probably just got the smoke in your mouth and instantly exhaled/coughed. Thats why a lot of people say they didn't feel anything their first time. You gotta hold that shit as long as you can brah.

All the THC that the lungs can absorb get absorbed within the first three to five seconds of inhalation. Hold it from 3-5 seconds and you're golden.

Yeah I have heard a lot of different times though. I have heard 3-5, I've heard 7, I've heard around 10.

So I said 10 or less to be safe.

Proof? Not necessarily doubting you, just want some. The people I heard it from had no source so why should I believe you without any.

Something kinda important everyone should know who indulges in the magical plant known as cannabis. The length of time one holds a hit of pot smoke in the lungs has little to no effect on how high ya get.

What is important, however, as most pot smokers tend to learn instinctually, is how DEEP one takes the smoke into the lungs. The reason for this is basically pretty simple: the lungs are essentially made up of a bunch of tubes, called bronchi. These tubes break into smaller tubes, that break into smaller tubes, that break into even smaller tubes, that finally end in tiny sacks called alveoli. These tiny sacks are covered in very fine blood vessels, called capillaries. In normal breathing, oxygen goes from the alveoli into the capillaries, which drain into the pulmonary veins, which go directly to the heart. (This is way drugs take effect so quickly when they are smoked).

So basically, to get your money's worth, the idea is to fill as many alveoli as possibly with smoke by taking the smoke as deep into the lungs as one can. However, the actual transaction of cannabinoids (the pharmacologically active chemicals in pot) going from the alveoli to the capillaries happens very quickly. All that happens when you hold the smoke in for a long time is that it gives the irritants in the smoke a longer time to irritate your lungs. It's pretty well established that regular pot-smoking increases one's risk of chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and other lung illnesses (although apparently NOT cancer, as several major studies have shown, which I'll discuss in a future article). So, to decrease your chance of developing any of these illnesses (chronic bronchitis, while nowhere near as bad as lung cancer, still sucks ass... let me tell you) you want to get the irritants out of your lungs as soon as the cannabinoids have been absorbed into the bloodstream. And this happens in a matter of a couple seconds.

Two studies (possibly more, but two that I found today, anyway) demonstrate this phenomenon. One study [1] looked at the cognitive effects of cannabis smoking in participants who held the smoke for a short vs. a long period of time. This study measured a battery of cognitive effects of pot smoking between the two groups, including tests of learning, associative processes, abstraction, vocabulary, and psychomotor performance. The majority of the tests showed no difference between the short-time and long-time smoke holders. A few of the tests showed minor differences, but the researchers concluded that this was simply a result of the participants holding their breath for a long time (maybe due to lack of oxygen). They concluded this because when the participants held their breath for a long time, they did worse on these tests whether they were smoking pot or whether they were smoking a placebo (a substance that looked and smelled like pot, but had no psychological or physical effects).

A similar, but slightly more complex study [2] looked at differences not only among groups who held the smoke different lengths of time, but also among groups who took in different amounts of smoke. As you might expect, the more smoke the participants took into their lungs, the more of an effect the smoke had. The more smoke they took in, the more THC was found in the blood, as well as the more the participants reported feeling high. Taking in more smoke also increased carbon monoxide boost, or how much carbon monoxide came out in the participants' breath. Basically, this is a measure of how much smoke the participants' lungs were exposed to. However, the length of time the participants held the smoke had no effect on carbon monoxide boost, nor did it have any effect on their self-reported high. The length of time the participants held the smoke also had no effect on an assortment of cognitive and motor tasks, similar to the first study. There was a difference in blood THC levels between the groups who held it in for 10 or 20 seconds vs. the group who held it in for 0 seconds, but that's kind of a no-brainer really. Frankly I'm not quite sure what the point of having them hold it in for no time at all was. But scientists can be wacky like that. At any rate, the article concluded that the study "...cast doubt on the common belief that prolonged breathholding of marijuana smoke enhances classical subjective effects..."

So there ya go. Breath it in deep, but the only thing you'll likely get from holding it a long time is a bad cough.

Like most people said, probably an inhalation problem, though it could also be because you're just not familiar with pot in general.

Try inhaling some smoke, then without exhaling, inhale some air. This gets the smoke out of your mouth and into your lungs, and moves it around a lot. From a surface chemistry perspective, this is exactly what you're trying to do.

No love for the herb at my house either!

Yesterday, a friend came by to pick up a lip ring because he was going to pierce his lip. He came to my driveway and I went out to meet him. My parents stopped me at the door and started questioning me, I closed the door when I went outside and they opened it, and they were going to follow me out. Yeah, they really think I'm stupid enough to make a drug deal like that. Ha. Also, I had my brother tell my mum the dude was stopping by when I called from the car on my way home. Gawd. When I cam in the house, my dad tried to reach into my pocket. Motherfucker.

Ah, nice to know. I always wondered about that, I think I hold it in too long haha.

obama's doing a live show right now on whitehouse.gov where he's answering the top questions and when the marijuana one came up he turned it into a joke and said what basically amounted to "hahaha silly potheads" and everyone in the room laughed and clapped. it could not have gone any worse.


I'm your average Afro-American fetus. For example: I enjoy basketball, I'm rather good when I play too, but I'm much too busy scratching my horrific cracked skin these days.
