Good point. Stop complaining Chrisn. Salma can't help it if she's deformed...poor thing.


Right now it's legal here to possess an ounce or less, and it's legal to give it away. (They were giving away nice fat joints in Civic Center park last week..I didn't go)But you can't sell it unless you're paying taxes on the sale...and there's the problem.

Come Jan 1, the state is figuring all the average MJ users are gonna start buying from "reputable sources", but we won't cuz (among other reasons) it'll cost more.
So tourists are gonna be the only ones buying "state weed". The bean counters are going to figure out there isn't nearly as much money to be made as everyone thought...and pretty soon after that, they'll repeal 64...or at least try to. The stoners are going to riot (if they can remember to).

The state sources will have the boom kron. Unencumbered lab rats with a state budget kick out some amazing weed. You may be suprised. I'd spend extra for it, if I were the smoking kind. Shoot I don't care about getting everyone around me stoned, but if I were to indulge, I would buy the best.

I'm sure a pound would last me at least a week.... lolz....

I will pay more $ for the convenience of just going down to the weed store and grabbing a few blunts of my favorite kind.

Also in looking at the results of the poll here again, it is exceedingly obvious that the "heads" completely demolished the "reds" in sanity and common sense.

I would like to invite the clueless and the paranoid to put that in their pipes (if they had one) and smoke it.

Then they could join Steve and I for a delicious Sunday morning wake 'n bake.

Cheers!

I hope you're right, Para.
Personally, I plan to stick with my source, unless and until I can grow my own.
Plus, I don't really want anyone seeing me buy it.

Yeah..I'll probably at least try the "legal" stuff. Packaging might be cool. Maybe it'll be good too, like Para says.

Probably best to do as you suggest...get baked and not think about it.

Sorry chrisn. I didn't see your post.
It's almost 6.
I try to get up early on Sunday, so Monday isn't so much of a shock to my old-man-system.
Plus I can go out on the back patio and use my (legal) drugs without my youngest son "catching" me. He won't be up for hours yet.

However my consumption has decreased to more of a 98 year old dating a 22 year old girl.

If I'd known you were coming back, I'd have written you into the script.

There is still a spot open. I need someone to yell, "Hey it's the fuzz!" Just before Janet and Slinger bust down the door and open fire with AK47s.

Wise and ReNt are sitting on the couch, each holding their weekly pound of weed, unfortunately a grenade lands in-between them, and then we see a red and green splash.

..so your part would be better than theirs.

Call me Mr. Handsy with the Mary Jane.

If NEPS were here, he'd post my pic at the 1995 Las Vegas Grateful Dead concert...again.

In my opinion drug testing is unnecessary. We hire after we field test employees for a week, and as the foreman, I'm right in the trenches with them doing the same work. As a musician I have seen plenty of drug users and drinkers and potheads, and of the three, I only really have issues with those who do hard drugs. What my painters do ON THEIR OWN TIME is their business, and each guy knows that if they show up high, or hungover, I'll send them home. We work in a word-of-mouth world, and even though pot smoking is becoming more acceptable, there is no place for it on a job site. It becomes quickly apparent if a guy is stoned or hungover and no good business survives with guys like that around...
