    yup, facial tattoos are always classy ;)

    on a serious note as a stoner i would be more than happy to apply for that job. i can tell you many strains just by the smell and give you a good indication of the quality and strength too.

    for example if i decide to lay on the sofa, eyes closed listening to music then its really nice northern lights or deriative.

    if i get really hungry its something like white widow

    or i im stodd near my window looking out for flashing blue lights its something like caly orange.

    Hmm, doctors have endorsed alcohol and tobacco in the past. And I suppose if you have a medical reason for using a product then you may as well enjoy it. But isn't there a risk that people will go out and get arthritis deliberately so that they can get themselves some of that medical marijuana?

    Yeah, I'm sure it's just THAT easy to get arthritis in under a week--two if it's the cheaper method. </sarcasm>

    Right, ,here's the deal. Wine: Tastes of grapes, gets you pissed. Cannabis: Tastes of burnt plant, gets you high.

    That's it. The rest is bollocks.
