    I've been smoking since I was fourteen and it was one of the best decisions I ever made---no regrets, no bad effects, no jail time ever, never smoked up more money than I could afford.

    That's why I couldn't really handle the unspoken norm on Reddit that underage recreational is always to be universally discouraged.

    I'm open to new information, but only if the younger person is too. I don't tolerate chronological snobbery in myself or others.

    Not that I don'tever bitch and moan and swap old war stories under the right circumstances or use the term "doogie howser" in a derogatory sense, lol.

    The average confiscated hash did not test above 3.5% THC until the first time I had/bought some, 1983. It had more CBD than THC before.

    I will weigh in on this as well. I agree that weed could be very paranoiac in the ‘70s. I think it was the pure Sativa strains that were being smuggled in. Personally, I preferred hash. The arrival of Skunk and what was called ‘hydro’ in the ‘80s changed it.

    I used to know a guy(American) that was stationed in Germany early seventies. His mind not normal, super paranoid, hearing voices. He said it was from hash his bunk mates lased him with. I think they got him lsd, it would have taken a pound of hash to waste a brain like that.

    First smoked in ‘79, friend picked me up in a boat, crossed the lake to a dealers house who was apparently out of weed. About 9 people smoked a pin joint.
    Don’t remember a buzz, but remember eating peanut butter to hide the smell from parents

    I smoked my first joint in the summer of 1968 with my best friend Warren.

    I can smoke now, but I'm the ultimate one hitter quitter. And that can give me a great buzz. I'm as reliable a THC content tester as any lab. lol. Now if I'm at a live concert, I can pull out my pipe and smoke hash all night long and feel great. Maybe it's the hash vs weed. I don't know.

    So I'm a hash guy for sure. The majority of friends my age are hash guys as well. The women are definitely weed smokers.

    The Bay Area will always be home for me, even tho I'll never be able to afford to live there again. I am sad about that.

    Holy shit, I started this thread 15 years ago lol. I had no recollection except the story itself after I read it again. That's me! I've killed over an hour reading it. Thank you cannabis gods.

    You've been on this site a long time. Time does go by faster every year seems like it goes by twice as fast as the last one. I wish it would slow down.
