But I tried on the vapourizer and it was a much more mellow high. I think for that reason, some people might be turned off smoking it that way. But again, I can probably count on one hand, the amount of times I've smoked weed in the last 10 years, so maybe someone more experienced can chime in

I don't think it should be illegal but I wouldn't be sad if it was. Is that fair?

I just want to fall asleep. But the vape is a much more pleasant method, the few times I have partaken.

This made me laugh so hard I about cried.

Must be all the weed.

There is no science proving marijuana to "cause" mental illness. That's absolute bullshit. There are many case studies proving marijuana to exacerbate specific mental illnesses in individuals that are susceptible to those particular issues, but certainly nothing to prove causation. The best I've seen is a rough correlation between those who smoke pot before age 12 and future issues with depression. People have been smoking pot for a long, long time, so you'd think we would have discovered some long-term side effects by now. Nope. Smoking anything is harmful to your lungs though.

This .

I'm of the belief that you can put whatever you want into your own body and that's your issue to deal with. But it is nice when smokers are mindful of those who don't smoke and don't care for the smell.

Which, I will say, is the case with everyone I know who smokes. They've always been very respectful and I appreciate that. And if I am on their property, I don't tell them to stop just because I'm there. If it bothers me that much I can always leave.

compared with the UK, attitudes to smoking are still shockingly dire here in France - people still smoke around children and babies, smoke when pregnant, even people you would think were incredibly well-educated, etc... it's pretty bad and drives me completely nuts! it's pretty much THE national past-time...

is that the "bong"? (sorry, old lady moment LOL)

i thought that was actually meant to be worse? i.e. it's too pure and you end up inhaling like a billion times more than you would normally? no?

Oh please tell me you North Americans don't call bongs "vaporizers". That is ridiculous.

Wait...you were the one who wrote: is that the "bong"? after quoting PF mentioning a vaporizer.

Vaporizers and bongs are two different things. A vaporizer uses heat to release the compounds in pot without actually burning it.

A vapourizer isn't a bong. Cobbler, please don't tell me you guys call gas stations 'servos'

yeah i was asking if it was the same thing, and i think cobl assumed it was the same thing too and that North Americans called it a vaporizer instead of a bong? LOL

Yeah, vapes are totally different from bongs. Hopefully everyone is clear on that.

It can induce psychosis though. Like all mind altering substances it should be used with caution. However this isn't a thread about cannabis and I really hope it doesn't derail into such.

As for the argument about putting in your body whatever you want, I can agree to a degree. Someone else pointed out that we should ban cheeseburgers and while that's extreme I do think we should start making it difficult to buy mass quantities of food (i.e. get rid of the supersize menu). If you want to drink 64oz of soda at once that's fine by me but you're going to have to go out of your way to do it.
