so fast. I do not smoke or use any kind of weed product. But 40 years ago I did. Back then they
were starting to go easy on simple possession of marijuana, in California, BUT, hash was a different
story. It was still a felony. But I just looked up the new law, and although it looks complicated
to understand all of it, it does appear that 8 grams or under of hashish is now legal in California.

went with it back in the 70s, and now the friggin shit's essentially legal. You can practically
stop at a convenience store and buy this shit. Not yet, but probably soon.

If I recall, it was Life in prison or some such shit, for simple possession. How times change. I
guess all the hippies grew up and ran for office.
> I was also remembering the one and only time I ever ate "brownies". Sure, I smoked it when I was
young, but I only ate it once, and that was ENOUGH.. I was at a party and ate a couple brownies, it
took awhile to come on, but when it did, I was FUCKED UP. It ain't like smoking it, eating it is
completely different. Never again, I NEVER ate that shit again. It was very uncomfortable. I was
fucking stoned. TOO stoned. lol
I'm going to mention again that the new, THC-enhanced strains of marijuana smell like shit.
Disgusting. I would not smoke it for that reason alone. I remember when I was overseas in the Navy
the only marijuana available for about three months was some that had apparently been smuggled in on
a fishing boat and must have gotten soaked with fish juice. I wouldn't smoke that. Most others
didn't pay the least bit of attention to the odor. None of the others, actually. I can't recall any.
