"Getting there is half the fun," is a philosophy that never gets old. For today's potheads traveling to distant destinations for vacation, the other half is getting high once you've gotten there. But getting off on that huge chunk of red Lebanese hashish you just copped in the Beirut bazaar won't be half as easy as back home if you can't summon up the correct words to ask one of the locals for a pipe in which to incinerate your pungent purchase. Learning how to ask for weed in foreign languages should be one of the first things you do once you book your next vacation.
Marijuana is a high-energy plant which grows quickly in fertile soil or a medium that is rich in available nutrients. Nutrients are found in the soil's parent materials: sand, clay, humus, minerals, rocks, and water are added to hydroponic solutions or soils using fertilizer. Nutrients dissolve in soil water (soil solution), which is then absorbed by the plant. In complex chemical processes, roots release ions in exchange for nutrients that are dissolved in the soil solution.

They made names for themselves in the underground drug world—for better or worse. So post up with your weed or vape and get your daily dose of drug history.

As a longtime marijuana smoker, I have faced discrimination from family, friends, and coworkers. Weed has a bad rep, but what harm is it really causing? As a mother, I know the true benefits of this herbal remedy. Between nausea, raging hormones, and constant discomfort brought on by pregnancy, pot can be a true lifesaver during those periods. Cannabis can also lend a helping hand once you’ve regained control of your body and care for a tiny human—it keeps you relaxed.
