Well old stoners, how long have you been smoking and what got you started?

    You’d have to look at the first half of the last century to find my date of birth so I guess I qualify as an “old stoner.” I was a child of the sixties; a rebel without a cause just enjoying life. Suddenly, Uncle Sugar grabbed me by the nap of the neck, shoved me in a set of fatigues and shuffled me off to the Nam. Now, I had a cause, whether I agreed with it or not.

    And here was my first introduction to pot; the most horrible experience in my life. Later learned it was supposedly laced with opium.

    Returning to the world, my cuz shared some Columbian Gold that was most pleasant despite the fact of being slightly hallucinating. The decade of the seventies was one continuous high. The CG source was fairly reliable, occasionally having to resort to Panama Red, Jamaican or Acapulco Gold when nothing else was available.

    At the turn of the next decade , a government position required abstinence.

    Rediscovered cannabis in 2015 in search for relieve for symptoms of PTSD.

      Same here about 16. Girlfriend back in SoCal HS. A few interruptions due to the jobs. Retired now and at 65 feel fine and have a great connect in the triangle.

      But I like the desktop vape and buttah (cookies) from the once-baked remains. Doobs are nice tasty full spectrum but hurt the old lungs.

              started at 16 and now 35, cool years!
              when i started, it was actually much cheaper to buy weed than cigarrette/beer, at least here in the 3rd world,


                I was 16 with my friend, Aya, a German foreign exchange student she was dating my friends brother who was a big stoner. We went on a joyride was given a hit “shotgun” style. I felt it instantly after hotboxing the car, the smoke was so thick we couldn’t see each other in the Buick. I ran into the man who gave me the shotgun with his new wife while serving them at a restaurant I work at last year this time of year. He pretended to not know me so I left it at that...his dad is now running for an elected official in my city so I’m assuming he doesn’t smoke the kind kind these days.


                  I guess I should mention I’m 30 years old and will always love Maryjane!

                    29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

                    19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

                    20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


                      May 1970. I just turned 16 & I was very drug curious, so I bought a nickel of black hash from a guy at school. I took it into a little wood near my home & toked on the end of a cigarette. I liked it. Four months later, I was busted after a school dance for possession of a narcotic: cannabis resin & possession of an illegal substance: LSD. I thought I was going to jail since drug busts weren’t common in my town in the shadow of Toronto but I only got a $100 fine on each count. Jimi Hendrix died on the day of my court date fwiw. After that, I became a school anti-hero since I didn’t rat on my dealer (he was a friend by this time).

                      Houses, kids, jobs, life all rolled by but I always toked. Early on in my sales career, I made the move into wholesale high-end audio equipment sales & later Pro audio equipment sales & since both of these industries were pretty drug friendly, I was often able to mix business with pleasure. Like at CES in Vegas in 1983, when my boss brought a bag of shrooms, which made for a very interesting evening of casino hopping on our last night. Lots & lots of good times along the way.

                      Now that I am off the work treadmill, I still smoke & now I finally have the time to grow as well.

It was, but I can't for the life of me remember which movie it was. Posidon Adventure, Inferno, Earthquake, Airport, one of them. By the time I was 10 I was a daily user, sneaking off to the bushes to smoke joints my cousin rolled for me. Eventually he got me a pipe. This was the San Francisco bay area, so pretty much anything was cool at the time.

                            So what's your story?
                            started in 1969passing by the galloping gooses bikers club house was offered a joint and never stopped left home, 1970 entered military service honorable discharge 1977, luv that Colombian gold, 66 years old, peace mike tea and god bless

                                I was curious because in school during drug prevention, they said MJ made you hallucinate. Actually now that I think of it, the effect they described was more the effect of LSD.

                                So to be honest, the first time I tried MJ, I was really dissappointed, I was tired hungry and giggly but I didn't see nothing lol

                                They lied to me!!!
