Use this handy dosing spreadsheet made by the friendly mitztronic over at TCC! Play with the variables in the top-left area to get different results and figure out what will work best for you. Keep in mind this is of course a very basic and rough guideline, and not something you should put infinite faith into. If you’re on a Mac or don’t have Office on your PC I recommend downloading something like OpenOffice to use this resource.
An awesome dude on a forum I frequent was kind enough to share this gem with the world. Bit of backstory – before the DEA was even a wet dream in Nixon’s young mind, the US Govt established the Federal Bureau of Narcotics to combat the growing epidemic of cannabis use. In 1937, marijuana possession or transfer was first made illegal at the federal level, except for in medical situations. So shortly thereafter, they published this document to help the first interdiction officers combat the evil marijuana plant. Here’s a couple excerpts from the thing if you’re afraid to download a 6 mb pdf:
This new Flex Your Rights video explores an argument I’ve seen over and over throughout the internet. Asserting your rights is all candy and dandelions when it works, but in the real world it isn’t necessarily a straight-forward scenario. And honestly, this is not a perfect video, but certainly worth a watch. A major point I’d like to note, however, that could cause some potential confusion – when a police officer calls in a K9 unit, they will have a maximum detention time that they can wait for it. It’s usually a pretty long while – 25 minutes or so – but you aren’t just free to go if they don’t have PC. And unfortunately you’ll likely be handcuffed on the side of an uncomfortable highway. Yay!
This isn’t strictly stoner related but it’s still interesting. I happened across a good article over at the Huffington Post which provides an overview of the Anonymous movement and its growth and development. Click the pic to read the article. Here’s part 2.
[Editor's note: this piece is written by a new contributor known as Hashishan] Oh sweet sweet peyote, how you make me smile. For a whole day at least. Certainly a cactus put on Earth for humankind to sink our teeth into and enjoy the soft, fuzzy, never prickly flesh. However, an extraction gone awry is rather less than sweet. So, big FYI here kiddos, read up on a few different methods and various ways of extracting/dosing your peyote or mescaline based goodies because no joke here, a bad extraction leads to not just a foul, disgusting gunky mess but at times an unpleasant trip.So read up, dose it right and have a wonderful time
“I remember Newt in his trailer before the filming started, he was scooting along the floor talking about blue bubbles and mini mee dragons,” Johnson Arnolds, a key grip on the campaign shoot told CBS news.
Things got really weird when Newt got onto the set and started talking.
“He was talking some really weird shit. We tried to tell him to keep to the script but the little rascal kept goofing around with that nonsense shit. In the end we just called it a day and four people had to escort Newt to his trailer because he thought he was on the surface of the moon,” director, Timmy Olsen, revealed.
