What Happens to Your Body When You Eat Weed?
Straight up smoking weed can literally give you the best feeling in the world. It's as though your surroundings don't make sense, you can't open your eyes because of your sudden sleepiness, and you immediately get the munchies like no tomorrow. Sometimes, just a few hits does the trick. But instead of smoking it, have you ever considered eating weed?
History of Sherlock Holmes' Pipe
Neither kith nor kin will turn down a bowl when you flash a classy, well curved glass "Sherlock" pipe coupled with some fine medical greenery. Most of America is controlled by money and pharmaceuticals, and fails to notice the obvious, smoking marijuana is for the introspective, the thoughtful, and for those who are searching for answers to the mystery of life. So why not smoke like the most famous detective, real or imagined, in history? Though Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle's books portrayed his literary Sherlock Holmes puffing tobacco out of various pipe styles, his legendary character is usually portrayed smoking what is referred to as a calabash pipe. There is much wisdom in Doyle's words often believed to be a direct result of what was in his pipe.
How to Bogart a Joint
Since I was a kid, smoking pot behind the gym in high school, I can always remember being the guy that had to be reminded to pass the joint. It wasn't that I was selfish, I was just stoned. I would sometimes tune out, until someone would inevitably tell me to pass the joint. There were no vapes back then, and I still enjoy a fine rolled joint from Willies Reserve. It was called a bogart because Humphrey Bogart always had a cigar dangling from his mouth.
Finding Marijuana in Colombia
There's a strange sensation of timelessness, seeing modern planes engulfed in a sea of museum relics in the Colombian airport. It's questionable whether or not these remnants from the past are capable of bouncing down the runway and soaring into the wild blue yonder.
San Francisco's Marijuana Supermarket
Okay, I confess. I was once a customer at the once famous San Francisco Big Top marijuana supermarket. I wasn't the only one. At east 5000 or 6000 other people in San Francisco could make the same claim including Paul Krassner, Tim Leary, the Tubes and an 80 year old shopping bag lady. So it was hardly an exclusive club.
Dope Dealer Days
In 1963 I took my first hit of LSD, which in a way saved my life, since it stirred in me a desire for adventure that forced me to move out of the nest and away from the Bronx. The Bronx I left is now virtually gone, save for the few ghosts that remained out of fear. Most of my old Bronx ghetto friends from the dope dealer days are now either burnt out zombies, in prison, or dead.
