As Kelso would say on "The 70's Show"....BURNNN!!!!

your friend,
john


Being mostly adults here, I wonder what would happen at one of these rallies if someone broke out a fatty (discreetly of course - say around a campfire as the beer and wine wears down) who would be offended, neutral or a toker? not looking for names, just imagining EACH of our impressions of each other.

I'll be honest here, Beemaster has had at least one Annette moment  :mrgreen: in his past and at the very least would not be offended at the jesture! The rest I leave to your imagination and comments  :shock: - watch this turn into a can of worms - lol.

Irwin:

On a very serious not (I have mentioned this before but I feel it should be said again at least once) I'm a strong advocate of medical marajuana and if it had been legal I think I could have had a talk with my dying mom who I know it would have helped, but it could never come up because she had prejudged ideas of it being DOPE, and couldn't possibly help. Personally, in hindsite, I should have whipped up a concentrate and added it to her tea just to see what comments she had. Of course, I wouldn't have done that, but I sure would have loved to had that conversation that may have brought her some comfort in her last days.

That all said, alcohol is the one that should be banned if either were to be - the damage it causes in thousands of was each year is so hypocritcal and unjust. Meanwhile a poor sap can have his life ruined by being caught with a "J" in his pocket. It is wrong wrong wrong, mean while alcoholics are mandated to see "Blood on the highway" get surcharged fines on insurance and back behind the wheel they go - go figure.

A friend of mine once said "I'd rather be on a highway filled with cars carrying smokers than the same highwy filled with drunks!" that always stuck with me, and I couldn't help but agree with him. Of course with the smokers, traffic would average about 30 MPH as they enjoyed the scenery, but think of all the gas we'd save not doing 85 and Faced!

P.S. everyone... I don't mean to change the topic (nor do I want to start a new thread) I just wanted to make comment on something here - please don't move post and I hope we get back on the topic of meetings.

I'm along the Eastern Coast of NJ about 10 miles from the Atlantic. I know to most people THIS is way out of the way, but I have a big backyard, a bareque and a few spare rooms for a get together here too! I've already hoped people from Australia to Florida and Georgia, anytime we can arrange a gathering, I'd gladly open my doors to you folks.

Travel wise though, because of medications I'm on that literally allow me to drive, I'm a bit limited on road miles, but I do have plans to fly a few time this Spring and Summer, I'll give lots of heads up on those dates so I can get together with as many of you as possible. I'll be the guy standing next to the teeshirt stand  :roll: :-D

Yeh John....A "Can of Worms"!!!
 Well,...I think most you guys know me pretty well....I dont smoke weed anymore, but, I also believe alcohol is a bigger probelm..Alcohol has pretty well been at the root of alot of my problems, socially, legally, and healthwise.....I've pretty much done all thats out there...But, in a situation like at a big gathering like you mentioned?...Smokin a joint to me, isnt any worse than havin a beer...Ive never seen someone so stoned on weed to where theyre stumblin, and fightin' and just causing a ruckus! But, its legal to get this way with alcohol!...A little weed??//Go ahead, lite it up! Make merry!! I wouldnt care!...Shoot, who knows? I just mite even take a hit, to be social, you know? Now, breakin out lines of something white...thats a different story...I wouldnt want to see it going on...This kind of stuff is what ruins lives!
Oh yeh....I do have a beer every now and then, and I can guarantee,...If traveling that long of a trip to meet you guys and hang out....I would definitely have a few beers! It would be worth that trip to the emergency room to hang with you guys!...The emergency room people always get me back to normal! (so far) :)
your friend,
john

For the record...I have never smoked anything illegal, I never drank any alcohol, and as far as my wife and mom are concerned I was a virgin when I got married, I never bought a dirty mag, I never shot anyone, and I have never cheated on my wife..... :roll: I'm as pure as the wind driven snow... 8-)

Now off the record, perhaps a few past mistakes could be summoned from the darkest places... ;)

Do previous lives count.....  :-D

Not that I have ever heard it said before  :roll: , but does anyone know the most famous word ever spoken by Friends toking on a joint?

Not that I would know this but I was guessing "puff, puff, pass" or "don't park on the grass" :mrgreen:

As one has just taken a long drag, and extends their arm to the next person while offering the joint, and in attempt to hold one's breathe as long as possible, a slang word muttered along the line of...."eerr" comes out in a half cough from the back of one's throat.  :-D

Come on, tell me you never said "eerr" while holding your breathe... :-D

Long time ago, tried almost everything once. Not into anything anymore that takes me away from my own natural state of peace.

I am not wanting to get off the pot (so I am typing on my laptop :-D ) subject. That stuff makes me laugh so much it becomes annoying to me. So I only tried it a few times.  But that was a long time ago I am older now maybe I will be less likely to laugh myself to sleep now.

Anyway I am one of the members who has attended Bjorn's picnic. It was a lot of fun, good food, door prizes and lots of different types and configurations of hives set up to look at and in. Mike does a great job with the picnic and I am sure I will be going in the years to come. I think it would be really cool to meet more of the people from the forum. I am in for any forum people gathering near by.

John I've never heard of a joint called a fatty I guess I'm out of touch with thing's. I thought you were talking about some thing else. A good friend of mine had the same thing with his mother he suggested pot and she said
I wont be having that.

Irwin, you are out of touch, my baby, so out of touch, my baby....remember that song?

Anyways, being surrounded alot by people that smoke pot, a lot, yes, one of the big words that I hear them speak is -- "come on, let's roll up a fatty", always wondered how big that doobie was....seems to me when they take off to the bush or behind a quad or something, it takes quite some time to smoke that fatty and lots of puffing.  I say "more power to them, have fun with that".  I don't smoke it, but I don't condemn it either, to each his own.  And they have no worries about smoking around me because they know I just don't care, too liberal minded for that nonsense.  Have a wonderful and awesome day, life, great health.  Cindi

Since we all lived thru the sixtys, well lots of us, that should be the least of our concerns "remember freedom rallys", who hasn't tried it in years gone by, or still do. If we are that petty to concern ourselves over what someone else does, I wouldn't want to meet those people. Live and let live is my minds eye.
If it doesn't reflect or cause me undue, why care. and like Cindi says, just go find a bush to stand behind, I find the govermental involvement way over board. Lives are ruined daily over laws about smoking a weed that grows wild all over this country.  Michigan finally this year joined the list of legal medical marijuana use. Just a small step in the right direction. OH ya and, no no no I don't do that no more, got tired of waking up on the floor.  :-D
