well,
i'm afraid i must issue both a sincere apology and a bewildered "what the fuck was THAT?"
i honestly don't remember writing that last post.
i'm still not entirely sure what point i was trying to make.

never NEVER trust somebody that hands you a glass and says "here, try this"
also, if anybody has seen my keys, let me know.

as for gasoline, i only fill up at stations that buy 100% American oil. As for absinthe, all of my supplies come from the USA, with the exception of one particular herb that comes from our neighbors to the north, and they have never started a fight with anybody outside of the Olympics.

Even worse, you're giving money to the French by buying French Absinthe. But like gasoline, Emile is a necessity.

you're giving more money to terrorists by driving your car to pick up your dope.

fwiw...my favorite improvisation was a trombone that we "borrowed" and converted into a gravity bong. we gave it back of course, but it never did smell the same...

It's funny, because I'm sure most marijuana in the States comes from either Mexico or Canada, and is grown by completely local operations.

"Oh, haven't you seen those new ads on TV, showing how dangerous pot is? "

... and didnt you know that the money you spend on pot is given directly to osama bin laden... ya, its true. it was on tv, if it wasnt for pot 9/11 would never happened.

its kind of insulting how ignorant these people think we are. its like that coke commercial that they have been showing right before the movie starts in the theaters(with mya and some black guy, i dont know who he is)...

..."i keep it real. i would never sell action figures... but coca cola, thats different"

"My favorite invention is the apple bowl.
An apple a day right?"

hehe apple bowls were fun.

i always has safety pins and was the go-to man in high school when nobody had a pipe or papers... empty soda or beer can, a little pinching and pressing, take the safety pin off my belt loop or wherever it was at the time, poke holes for a screen, and presto. want the turbo version? grab a bic pen and ram a large hole in the side for a carb! awooga! and speaking of bic pens, got no toilet paper rolls? just wrap some aluminum around a bic and form the excess into a bowl...

Well, that "this is your brain on drugs" with the fried eggs TV spot actually won some kind of award, and that had to be the stupidest piece of shit I've ever seen. The only way I can make sense of it is that it's intended for four-year-olds and they're hoping it will take precedence over critical thinking when the child gets older. Says a lot about their opinion of American youth, eh?

Oh, haven't you seen those new ads on TV, showing how dangerous pot is?

So far, they've showed that pot can:

-Make you crash your car into a kid on a bicycle while going out for munchies

-Make you play with your dad's gun and accidentally shoot your friend

-My you pass out so some guy can feel you up against your will (this one is REALLY disconcerting; it ends with a cut-away and the girl's voice saying a plaintive "no...")

Er, have you checked the statistics for ALCOHOL related car crashes, gun accidents, and date rapes?

Toilet paper roll and aluminum foil. Never fails. For the rednecks without toilet paper, there's always the corn cob.

We used to joke that making pipes was my buddy's mutant power. He could (and WOULD) make a pipe out of anything.

I think my favorite was from a can of lemon Pledge. It wasn't a real can - it was one of those hide-a-safes.

I remember in earlier days when we got our little anti-drug lectures in school, if you really pushed the anti-drug people hard about the negative effects of marijuana the best they could come up with (being that there's little hard data about its long-term effects) was that it's somehow more prone to abuse because 'it's not part of our culture' like alcohol.

Funny, isn't it?

I wouldn't be too sure that is going to last too long, as this recent series of raids (including against Tommy Chong's glass factory) indicates. The feds know the difference between a pipe for pot and a pipe for tobacco just as well as we do. Nobody smokes tobacco from a bong. The only gray area is going to be Hookahs and Narghils...

This whole thing is absurd, of course. The government is realizing that the drug trade is buried too deep to do anything about, so they are attacking the targets that are out in the open.

I mean, shit, do they think that if they get rid of all the bongs that people will just give up smoking weed? I've seen stoners improvise smoking utensils out of everything from a beer can to a tiki-god drink glass. They're like freaking MacGuyver if they need a bowl, but they can't be bothered to get off the couch to change the channel...

you just can't call them what they are. they are "for smoking tobacco" and nothing more wink wink nudge nudge... most places will actually kick you out of the store if you ask if they carry bongs. have to refer to them as water pipes. and if you say you'll be using them to smoke marijuana or any other illegal substance, they are supposed to refuse to sell to you, and some will kick you out of the store. and then there are some places that could care less, they just follow the rules on what you're supposed to have posted etc.

"I'm curious as to when this happened, and how the hell it happened! When I was a kid, EVERY record store in town sold this stuff openly. Now it's prohibited by federal law???"

Record stores in the 1970s sold that stuff, so did head shops. Laws against the sale of "drug paraphenalia" began to appear way back then on both state and federal levels. I have no idea how strictly they've been applied through the years, but I wouldn't be surprised if the quoted story was the result of the Feds testing their new "Patriot" act (what a disgraceful use of that word) powers to mind your business. With world war looming, they can't afford to let things be pushed over the edge by roach clip proliferation.

Hmm...that "HSS" poster may not be that far off. Here's an excerpt from a CNET news story sent to me by a friend:

>At least four drug-related Web sites targeted by the Justice Department -
>PipesForYou.com, ColorChangingGlass.com, 420now.com, and OmniLounge.com -
>now sport government messages. The text says: "By application of the United
>States Drug Enforcement Administration, the Web site you are attempting to
>visit has been restrained by the United States District Court for the
>Western District of Pennsylvania."
>
> Federal law prohibits selling any product that is "primarily intended"
>for use with illegal drugs, including water pipes, roach clips and small
>spoons used with cocaine.
>

I'm curious as to when this happened, and how the hell it happened! When I was a kid, EVERY record store in town sold this stuff openly. Now it's prohibited by federal law???

Watch out...absinthe spoons and dose-marked glasses may be next!

"is it possible that an absinthe drinker can test positive for THC?"

It's not only possible, but almost certain, if he smokes cannabis. If he tests positive for THC while using no cannabis in any form, he's got a problem: incompetent drug testing. You can forget about what you drink or smoke at that point, because it bears no relationship to the test result - they're like a blindfolded monkey with darts, and you're the dart board.

"Has anyone in this forum been tested for THC"

Yes.

"and if so, what was the result?"

Positive, when there was THC in my system (years ago - I don't use it any more), and negative, when there wasn't. This has nothing to do with thujone. THC is not thujone and not like thujone.

That THC-Thujone article is a bit outdated. The effects have not been shown to be similar(wishful thinking). Sure they're similar on a molecular level, but so are many things. I wouldn't think Thujone would give a positve on a THC test. IF it does, just tell them you ate a lot of stuffing.

As far as I know, there is no "pee test" to look for thujone.




My question about the pee test was not whether or not there was a specific test that detects Thujone (I know there isn't one), but if the Thujone is similar to THC in terms of molecular structure and effects, is it possible that an absinthe drinker can test positive for THC?

Has anyone in this forum been tested for THC and if so, what was the result?
