$50 an ounce is reasonable considering I'm now paying $43/lb. for tobacco after they slapped a $24.85/lb. tax on it. Then Arnold took away 1/3 of my state disability money and the feds added $9 a month for my prescription drug benefits Bush said would not happen. Like I didn't see the last one coming. Looks like I'll be fasting 7 days a month now instead of four so I have some disposable cash for luxury items like soap and toothpaste and deodorant.

$50/oz tax? Really? You think that's what it should be?
I remember a LID (anyone remember the Prince Albert Tobacco tins) costing less than $20, and an OZ costing between $20-100!
A good "stems and seeds" less OZ is costing 10-100 times that much these days! Ahem, or so I hear.....
The tax should be closer to $1 a pin, $3 a splif, or $100 for a "big bamboo"!
Do you know what us alcohol, or nicotine users are spending on tax right now?!?

Said that, but if it was legalized, and taxed, then the overall cost to the average user would probably stay close to the same, but the cost to society would be much lower.

ya, and at $75/brick, you had to do the stem and seed yourself, but wih time you ended up with about 1/3rd of what you statted out with...that's if you didn't smoke any. The "bricks" in my neighborhood were haybail sized......circa 1973.....

When I started in '63 you could get a brown lunch bag full for $10 and walk around smoking it. Nobody knew anything about it back then. I'd roll cigar sized joints in brown paper from the bags and they would think it was just a nasty smelling cigar. There were no branded types. Just reefer. I was 13 and used to buy it behind the pool hall from some ex-con named Pete that always had a 3 day growth of beard and actually wore one of those gangster trench coats and a stingy brim hat. LOL

Well it is more expensive now because the quality of marijuana these days is 100x better.

Also, I hope everyone on this forum knows that marijuana has not contributed to a single death. Asprin and caffeine kill more people than marijuana does.

And "Lid", "Brick", and so on.
I've absolutely no idea what the hell you're talking about. My PDA's universal converter program doesn't have any of those terms for metric or english equivalents.

Who comes up with this stuff? Is there like a "Drug Reference Evaluation Volume Indicator and Labeling (DREVIL)" standards organization?.

It might as well be British slang between Austin Powers and his father. ;)

Is that mass or volume? Does it depend on whether it's cleaned of stems, seeds, etc (e.g. "clean splif" vs. "dirty splif")?.

Are there Klingon dictionary equivalents? (I've read there's an actual entire Klingon language out there, but it's not available on Google's translation menu.) Hmmm. Wonder if Narus' Semantic Traffic Analyzer real-time data analysis tool (used by NSA) understands Klingon?

It was funny at one of my high schools. everybody flunked math, but they all knew how many grams were in an ounce, ounces in a kilo etc. And that was before those Euro guys started forcing that metric crap on us. But I never gave in. I still use cubits, and royal cubits!

@John,
I guess you are not, nor have every been in close association with Mary Jane users.

A "LID" was a relatively specific measurement for a long time....
Payton, correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to recall that one tobacco tin (Prince Albert), or about 3-4 uncleaned "fingers" or about 2-3 "fingers" of cleaned weed used to be called a "lid".

Now within that measurement you had several different levels of quality: sticky, gold, red, maoui wowwy, sleeper, and of course green, or as a derivative "Gainesville green" (which because it was supposedly cultivated by an agricultural lab at the UF, had a higher quality.....or so I've heard so many years ago). I'm sure that I'm forgetting several others, but those were the labels at the time.

Since then, it has become, much like the INTERNET a multi-trillion dollar industry, which of course may require more standardization on the corporate level. I disagree that the average user experience is as stated elsewhere 100x or even 10x more potent or better! If we are to actually look at the data, the potency CAN be that much higher, but the wild, and independently cultivated weed, or cash crop varied vastly then, as it does now.... I seem to recall that potency of another commodity back then labeled as such fanciful things as red dragon, black dot, blotter, window pane, etc., were actually so variable in dosage as to be as much as 100x MORE potent than what is MASS MARKETED today.

Be that as it may. I am taking at least 8 approved and pharmacutically provided medications every day, 3-4 of which are pain oriented, another is blood preasure oriented.
I could probably do away with up to 4 of these "approved and legal" medications with one dose per day of THE ONE WE'VE BEEN going on about! Two of the approved, legal, but not prescripted medications that I take regularly are tobacco and alcohol, so now I'm up to 10....I could be down to 4, or lower...

Think about it. I do.

It amazes me that the term HACKER has taken such a NEGATIVE connotation over the years that I've been here. A HACKER WAS a GOOD thing!!!!!
The problem with a HACKER, and with writing code in machine language or even MACRO, was that it would be a total BITCH to figure out what a good coder actually did, in case of his firing or going to another company.
A HACKER was someone or a group that actually came up with a quicker or better sollution to a problem, OUTSIDE of NORMS!
HACKER, CRACKER, PHRACKER, PHREAKER, they are so close....why OH!, lets just use the same name for all of them when we write our little journalistic commentaries about SOMETHING WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT..... The modern world is run by idiots, for idiots, the rest of us (an I include you here John, as well as most of my fellow HWAers), seem to be just along for the ride.

I probably had a decent understanding of the early measures of pot (joint, lid, brick), but when you start adding on the other terms, I'd have to admit you lost me. I've never been a smoker of anything...just can't tolerate it. Second hand smoke is no problem...but in my lungs?...how can people do that and not die coughing!!!??? I tried a filtered menthol cig once and thought I'd been hit with CS gas. Unfiltered Marlboro's are less lethal!!


Re: "hackers"...Yeah...the general public is neither knowledgeable about nor interested in knowing the differences. It's a one "negative" label fits all world these days. Even in the early movie "Hackers", the label was applied to both the "good guys" AND the "bad guy".

According to some recent DHS reports, dozens if not hundreds of different groups are now potential terrorists or extremists, when in the vast majority of instances (on both "left" and "right" sides) I would bet all they are is people who think, perhaps understand history, are concerned, and peacefully discuss the issues...perhaps with some emotional context, but still just discussing.

Labels can be extraordinarily powerful things (as politicians, news media, marketing, and focus groups well know).

Actually the gov. stuff came from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's farm on the University of Mississippi. It was all ground up then soaked then dried to create a homogeneous mixture with the same THC content for testing. I had a vial that was labeled 3.9% D9 THC that was the best they grew, and came in a test tube type vial with round bottom and screw on tap and a band sealing the top much the same as the tax band on hard liquor. Worst crap I ever smoked. And this was the stuff the govt. was supplying for scientific testing. They didn't understand that different varietals had different psychotropic properties that should have been studied independently. I think I still have the bottle. I'll have to look in the garage tomorrow after the doctors. Here are some strains that were developed for their medicinal properties.As you can see these ads are just for a packet of 50 seeds and price ranges from $45 to $900CD

Maui Wowie along with the Kona Gold came out in the late 1970's. Some people told me, though I wasn't involved (cough cough) that they were actually smuggling Cali pot into Hawaii and selling it as Hawaiian to people from Cali for quite a substantial profit as Hawaiian was selling for over $1000/lb. more than Cali but most people didn't know the difference. And law enforcement were more centered on Imports from Asia and exports from Hawaii. Ahhhh those were the days when everyone was cool and nobody thought about packing.

I thought I remembered that at one time the feds imposed a tax stamp requirement on wild marijuana. It was supposed to be the way to go after users and dealers the way they finally nailed Dillinger...tax evasion. Even if no other charges stuck, they could get you for tax evasion and the fines, penalties, and prison time were non-trivial, and every ounce that did not have a stamp counted as a separate charge of tax evasion.

My memory is telling me that at one time it was some really insane amount like $10,000/oz tax. You could in fact legally buy the stamps but of course the stuff was still illegal. But now they could get you not only for the drugs but for tax evasion if you didn't have the stamps. Just like the liquor and cigarette tax stamp requirements. I also seem to remember some people bought those tax stamps as collector's items.

I remember my father, a staunch Repulbican, back in the 1970s, during the time we are talking about, being a "smuggler", under present definitions of the law. We as Floridians, used to travel through North and South Carolina (states with a much lower tax, if any) and my otherwise law abiding Dad, brought back MANY CARTONS of KOOL cigarettes.

Tobacco has it's history, along with Canibbis, been smuggled, used, taxed and abused, as well as being put forth for some of the same reasons that canibbis is now.

I am a smoker, have been for OVER 30 years, of tobacco. I know that it is wrong, but continue to do so.
I know of no one that is reasonable, that claims that they are addicted to canibbis, but I am, and have been addicted to tobacco and alcohol.
Oh crap....I think I just said I should be in a step program......
Nope, I'll not do that, nor do I ever think I will (you have to give up thinking to enter them).
Weed, is it good, mayhap not, is it bad, no more than twinkies ,tobacco,or alcohol.
It is only through the abuse of any substance or any science that something could be construed as WRONG.
Therefore RUSH LIMBAUGH IS RIGHT, SCIENCE IS WRONG, and we should all bow to the power of his perception!!

Bullshit. I'm full of it, He's full of it, we are all full of it, it's just a matter of degrees.

Frickin awesome story. I gotta call you out on crashing after two hours and three tabs, though. I wasn't there so I can't say what did or didn't happen, but I can say that does not correlate with... what I've heard.

Interacting with cops after putting forth a serious drunk and voluminous quantities of pot will help you crash hard. And like i said it was pretty mellow stuff. and i did have a pretty high tolerance. I was trippin 3 or 4 times a week. Probably done 500 trips at least. I have had stuff on a Friday night that still had Mexican serapes patterns floating on and melting down the walls of my English class on Monday morning. But then again that wasn't acid but some crap developed by the Army for chemical warfare, It was called STP and guaranteed a psychotic breakdown. Scientists said it was less potent than LSD but it was pretty obvious they bever took it. Sunset Blvd. turned into a multicolored river and the man hole covers were floating about a foot off the ground, Designed to be sprayed on enemy combatants in the field. Then again i do have a Masters Degree in Bullshit and short stories, so... :cool:
