Re: “Don't Try This at Home

I smoked honey oil a few times back in the late '70s, only it was too expensive and scarce to over do, even then. I used to smoke about a quarter ounce of good weed per day, way more on many occasions, but probably my most daring feat was to smoke one gram of Lebanese Blonde hashish by myself in less than two hours. It got pretty psychedelic for hash, but didn't take long to put me to sleep.

Re: “The Long, Hot Summer

Thank you for printing the article about the impending years of drought ahead of us. It is possibly the most important issue facing us here in the west. Though you only touched on the issues of food security, and neighbors looking out for each other, I'm glad you ended it on this note. 

We need to stop looking to government to fix things for us, and start coming up with our own solutions. A good place to start is by talking to neighbors about raising food cooperatively. There are also plenty of local groups focused on edible gardens/landscapes, and Permaculture.

Ge ready for a mass influx of climate change refugees from more drought ridden areas to the south. California's drought is reaching Biblical proportions.

Water use has decreased because it's the most expensive utility bill. Period.

Re: “The High Life

According to the WW dabs are all the rage as well. Especially if you're a cam girl.

NICE shoutout to Dukes of Stratosphear! All Funkadelic is good, not just Maggot Brain. One Nation Under a Groove is important. You're missing out if you haven't heard Tipper's Broken Soul Jamboree.

Re: “Fresh Air

Thank you for this informative article on how "plant" becomes a "liquid" . . . as a cancer patient who doesn't smoke but puts my Co2Company oil in a gel cap for bedtime I was fascinated to know the exact process and that there are no "additives" . .. I try to educate others that this is "better than" the marinol I was first prescribed but more information needs to get into the public and professional hands. This post helps explain why this is not "recreational" and how it is better than what I can get at a pharmacy.

Re: “Roll Another Number

I am neither a Mercury reader nor a pot smoker, but when I did indulge in the leaf back in the old days my favorite album to listen to was Jethro Tull 'Thick As A Brick'. It is essentially one whole song with the same musical theme appearing throughout the album. I don't know why that was so appealing to a stoned listener but it was. Check it out sometime!

Re: “Roll Away the Stone

One more essential album: "A Child's Garden of Grass: A Pre-Legalization Comedy." Back in 1971 when this album was released, who could dream that someday we would hear this question at our local over-the-counter store: "Fliptop, flat box, soft pack, or bulk?" From one of the many funny sketches that permeate this gem that flew under the radar for decades.... Check it out on YouTube.

"Professional stoner"

I was a talented amateur in high school, but there was no way to go pro back then, sadly, short of landing a High Times writing gig.

Re: “Don't Try This at Home

To each is own, but I think there is a time and place for everything,... including dabs.

Re: “Bang a Bong

Hey Atl to PDX - I had issues for years with cleaning glass using the ingredients you mentioned, often with the same results. I found it made a HUGE difference to upgrade from standard 70% isopropyl alcohol to 99%. About a dollar more per bottle, but it changed my experience with the results. I've used that method to clean this Rooster piece, and it's sparkling, like new clean in under 5 minutes of doing so. Thanks for reading!
